Linda de Mol claims that she only found out about the allegations of abuse against her ex-partner Jeroen Rietbergen this year.

The Dutch TV presenter, who is also popular in Germany Linda de Mol (58) has commented extensively on the abuse scandal surrounding her ex-partner Jeroen Rietbergen (51). De Mol broke up with her longtime boyfriend earlier this year after it became public that he had abused his power as bandleader on the TV show "The Voice of Holland" and sexually harassed contestants.

In her magazine "Linda" de Mol now describes the evening of January 12, 2022, where she said she first heard about the allegations. She was just preparing a risotto when an email suddenly changed her life. "I fell into a big, deep, black hole," writes de Mol.

"That someone you love so much is dating young Women misbehaved - it made me sad and angry," the moderator continues. In the days that followed, de Mol felt "numb" and couldn't leave her own home. In the Netherlands, there is controversy over whether de Mol already knew about the allegations in 2020. Two women are said to have approached her at the time, but de Mol asserts in her latest statement: "I knew, and I swear by my two children, nothing about 'The Voice'".

The former "Dream Wedding" presenter only returned to television earlier this month. She hosted a new edition of the game show "Miljoenenjacht" ("Million Hunt"). Meanwhile, the public prosecutor's office is continuing to investigate her ex-partner Rietbergen. It is currently uncertain whether charges will be filed.
