French president splits with partner after affair

(AFP) – 30 minutes ago

Paris — French President Francois Hollande on Saturday told AFP he has split with his longstanding partner Valerie Trierweiler after his affair with an actress nearly 20 years his junior.

The announcement came after a day of rumours in the French media that Hollande would formally announce the rupture on Saturday, on the eve of a visit by Trierweiler to India for charity work.

Saying he was speaking as a private individual, Hollande announced: "I wish to make it known that I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler."

Trierweiler, 48, remains holed up in a presidential residence in Versailles outside Paris after leaving hospital last Saturday, where she was treated for a bout of "tiredness" brought on by press revelations of Hollande's affair with 41-year-old actress Julie Gayet.

In view of his much-publicised troubled love life, an audience with the Pope was probably the last thing Francois Hollande needed right now.

Nevertheless, the somewhat sheepish French president fulfilled that obligation yesterday as it emerged that his estranged girlfriend Valerie Trierweiler is also determined to carry on with her duties.

Miss Trierweiler, recovering from an apparent drugs overdose after learning of Mr Hollande’s two-year affair with an actress, is keeping a charity commitment in India this weekend.

Her trip is being seen by some as her ‘last stand’ as First Lady. Mr Hollande, who visited Rome with the threat of a reprimand from Pope Francis over France’s decision to allow gay marriage also hanging over him, is believed to be considering leaving Miss Trierweiler for actress Julie Gayet, 41.

Despite the unfortunate timing, yesterday’s private meeting with the Pope passed off without any further embarrassment for Mr Hollande – with Francis even showing his lighter side by joking about their shared name.
