Allegations That French First Lady Trashed Presidential Office
Valerie Trierweiler, the partner of French President Francois Hollande, allegedly trashed his office upon hearing of his two-year affair with actress Julie Gayete.
Flying into a fit of rage, France’s first lady Valerie Trierweiler went bonkers in her partner’s office in the Elysee Palace and destroyed artifacts, including a Louis XVI vase, to the tune of more than 3 million euros, media reports claimed Thursday.
The stories were denied by a spokesman for the Mobilier National, which is responsible for presidential furniture, according to the London Evening Standard…
The alleged temper tantrum occurred after the president admitted the two-year affair to his partner, the reports said. In response, she trashed more than $4 million worth of French antiques including centuries-old vases, clocks and furniture, according to the allegations.
