YEREVAN, January 13. /ARKA/. François Hollande lurched deeper into crisis on Sunday as it emerged that France’s First Lady was being treated in hospital after learning of the president’s alleged love affair and a report linked the apartment he used for his romantic rendezvous to Corsican mobsters.
Valérie Trierweiler was admitted to a Paris clinic on Friday suffering from stress shortly after learning of allegations that Mr Hollande had spent nights in a flat near the Elysée Palace with an actress.
The 48-year-old’s office said she had gone into hospital to “get some rest and have some tests done” and would be discharged today.
The 59-year-old president has threatened to sue Closer magazine for breach of privacy but has not denied the affair with Julie Gayet, 41, who has two children with her estranged husband.
On Sunday Mediapart, a website that has broken several stories that rocked the French establishment, said the apartment he used was linked to the Corsican mafia. –0--
