However, Alizee's father Jean-Gabriel Thevenet revealed, "My daughter Alizee is very happy with James, they are very much in love. James is a very charming man. I have seen the pictures of Alizee and James in St Barths. They look very happy. Alizee is very happy living in London."

She continues: "I am a result-driven individual with good planning and organizational skills with attention to details. I have a demonstrated ability to find solutions to problems using my creativity and reasoning, I am always open to new ideas."
