French president announces separation from 'First Lady' after reported love affair
Sunday January 26, 2014 8:22 AM, IANS

French President Francois Hollande confirmed Saturday reports on a breakup with his companion Valerie Trierweiler after a magazine report unveiled his secret liaison with an actress.

"I wish to make it known that I have ended my common life with Valerie Trierweiler," Hollande told AFP, Xinhua reported.

The breakup came after a local celebrity magazine Closer reported on the president's secrete love affair with a French actress Julie Gayet.

The 48-old-year journalist was hospitalised as she suffered from "an extreme nervous exhaustion", a week after the publication of a seven-page photo spread, titled "the President's secret love."

Trierweiler has been Hollande's partner since 2006. They were not married but she assumed the role of First Lady at official ceremonies and state visits.

As questions have been raised on his presumed affair with Gayet, the Socialist head of state has neither confirmed nor denied the reports, urging a respect of his private life.
