Alexandra de Taddeo is a French jurist and entrepreneur. In 2020, she gained media attention with her implication in Petr Pavlensky's project called "Pornopolitics".

She is Petr Pavlensky's girlfriend.[1][2]

Early years

Alexandra de Taddeo was born in Metz, France, on February, 16th 1991.[3] She is the daughter of Francis de Taddeo (:fr:Francis de Taddeo), a professional football manager and the great-niece of Henri Burda, an association football player.[4]

Education

Alexandra de Taddeo graduated with a Master in Audiovisual Communication from Paris School of Communication, Masters in International and European Law from University of Paris II Panthéon-Assas, a Master in International Relations and Governance from Sciences Po and a degree in Economics from Oxford University.[5][6][7][8]

In 2018, she wrote a Master's Thesis on Russian foreign policy towards the Arctic.[9]

In 2019, she completed a six-month internship at the Alliance of Lawyers for Human Rights[10], and a six-month internship at the UNESCO headquarters, in the Educations sector.[11]

She was a member of the Paris Youth Council from 2018 to 2020.[12][13]

She is an occasional contributor to several publications including the General review of public international law (:fr:Revue générale de droit international public)[14] and Protestant Frequency (:fr:Fréquence Protestante).[15][16]

In 2021, she announced plans of developing an entrepreneurial activity.[17]

Controversy related to "Pornopolitics" and the "Americanization" of French politics

On February 12, 2020, Russian artist Petr Pavlensky disclosed his "new event of political art", described as the "first political porn platform".[18][19][20] Pavlensky published explicit videos depicting masturbation and sexually connoted messages sent by the deputy and Paris mayoral candidate Benjamin Griveaux to a woman who was not his wife, later identified as Alexandra de Taddeo.[21][22]

On February 14, 2020, Benjamin Griveaux, President Emmanuel Macron's candidate for Paris mayor pulled out of race.[23][24]

This project created a huge controversy in France, with many commentators denouncing the "americanization" of French political life.[25][26][27][28]

On February 18, 2020, Alexandra De Taddeo and Pavlensky were arrested and placed under formal investigation for invasion of privacy.[29][30][31]

During the investigation, Alexandra de Taddeo's possible Russia connections were examined. French medias denounced De Taddeo's russophilia and saw in "Pornopolitics", potential whiff of kompromat.[32][33] French secret services quickly put down this hypothesis and denied that De Taddeo was a Russian spy.[34]

On February 20, 2020, Petr Pavlensky told CNN that he stole the incriminating footage from Alexandra de Taddeo's computer and she didn't know that he found and took the videos[35]; thus confirming the statement made by Alexandra de Taddeo who acknowledged receiving the sex videos but denied being involved in their publication.[36]

On July 2020, Alexandra De Taddeo's lawyer, Noemie Saidi-Cottier, filed a complaint against Mimi Marchand (:fr:Michèle Marchand), Emmanuel Macron's shadow publicist, and police officers involved in her arrestation for breach of the investigation secrecy, counterfeiting and forgery of public documents.[37][38] In September 2020, two policemen were placed under formal investigation for the related offences.[39]
