Agostinelli Spouse – Mathilde Agostinelli (Ex), Rosalie van Breemen (Ex)

Robert Frank Agostinelli was married to Mathilde Agostinelli (now Meyer) for a brief period of time. Mathilde is the public relations director for Prada in France and is a quintessential Parisian beauty with impeccable taste and style. She also worked previously as a fashion editor and a porcelain artist. The couple divorced and shortly after, she married Antoine Meyer, a fashion photographer.


Mathilde is a very close friend of Cecilia- Nicholas Sarkozy’s ex-wife. Robert Agostinelli is extremely close to Nicholas Sarkozy. The friendship survived even when Cecelia and Nicholas Sarkozy got divorced.


Robert was also married to Rosalie van Breemen, a Dutch model. She was born in Utrecht, The Netherlands on August 2, 1966. She previously worked as a journalist and as a presenter on Dutch television. Before being married to Robert Agostinelli, she lived with French actor Alain Delon and had two children with him. In 2001, they ended their relationship and barely a year later, she married Alain Afflelou, a French millionaire. This marriage ended badly as well in 2008 and they got divorced. After divorcing him, she wrote a book about ‘how to make your divorce a success when our marriage turns out to be a failure’.

In 2010, she married Robert Agostinelli. The marriage came as a shock to friends and relatives alike, especially after her previous two failed relationships. However, she just had a string of bad luck and this marriage didn’t last as well.
