Valerie Trierweiler ‘will stand by her man’ Francois Hollande despite affair, French Closer claims in 'new revelations'
The magazine – which exposed the alleged affair – brought forward its normal Friday publication day by 24 hours to make "new revelations"
The French first lady Valérie Trierweiler wants to stand by her man when he visits the White House next month, despite his love affair with 41-year-old actress Julie Gayet, Closer magazine reported today .
The magazine – which exposed the alleged affair almost two weeks ago – brought forward its normal Friday publication day by 24 hours to make what it claimed were "new revelations".
It alleged that Trierweiler, 49, now resting at the presidential retreat La Lanterne in Versailles, wanted to remain President Hollande’s romantic partner and First Lady.
The publication also suggested that she has told friends that she expects to accompany him on a trip to Washington from 9 February.
Elysée Palace sources have strongly hinted in recent days that Hollande plans to end their eight year partnership and live alone.
Hollande told a press conference last week that he would "make a statement" before the Washington visit.
He is expected to reveal his intentions by early next week, before he comes to Britain next Friday for the annual Anglo-French summit with the Prime Minister David Cameron.
A rumour, taken up by news blogs in France and repeated by Closer today, that Trierweiler had wrecked Mr Hollande’s office in a fit of revenge, was "categorically denied" today by the government’s property agency, Mobilier National.
The news blog Economie Matin had reported that Trierweiler went on a wrecking spree after he admitted to her that he was having an affair with the actress Julie Gayet. Mobilier National said that there was no truth in these reports.
A former French First Lady, Bernadette Chirac, said in a radio interview that she had sent a "note" of commiserations to Trierweiler.
"I shared her sadness because I can imagine that she is sad," Chirac said.
In a book of autobiographical interviews in 2002, Chirac admitted that the infidelity her husband, Jacues Chirac, had caused pain in her own life.
