From the day of their first public date, at Disneyland Paris of all places, their lives have always seemed torn from the pages of a fairy tale.
That was back in December 2007 when the confident new French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, courted the Italian-born model and French pop singer, Carla Bruni, as they wandered the pathways with Disney’s fabled characters. Soon after, they wed and became an extraordinary media sensation.
It seems there might be some trouble in the magic kingdom. And if the latest rumors buzzing around about them both having extramarital affairs are true, this glitzy political saga could be coming to an end.
Reports are in the air that Carla Bruni fell in love with the French singer Benjamin Biolay, who just won the award for best male singer and best album of the year at the prestigious ‘Victoires de la musique’. Bruni and Biolay have reportedly been friends for many years and according to the reports, Bruni and Biolay already live together.
Some reports also say that president Sarkozy has found ‘comfort in the arms’ of right-wing politician Chantal Jouanno, a 40-year-old cabinet member in charge of the environment as well as a karate champion.This hyperactive, American-friendly president and this French-Italian former model and singer have always been flamboyant and always prompted all kinds of speculations and rumors, including that Sarkozy was begging his former wife Cecilia to get back together, to rumors of a Sarkozy-Bruni baby. But now the rumor mill is working overtime in France and a lot of it is ending up.
The former supermodel Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has said her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, would never cheat on her and has described their love story as a ‘real fairy tale’. Bruni-Sarkozy, who married Sarkozy two years ago after a whirlwind romance, made the comments on Britain’s Sky News television in an interview released on March 10, 2010 and recorded on March 5th.
