London, Mar 10: 'Once a cheater always a cheater'- this old phrase on relationships has yet again proved to be right as it has emerged that France's first couple are cheating on each other.
President Nicolas Sarkozy and First Lady Carla Bruni, who got married in 2008, are cheating on each other, say reports in international media, blogs and TV news channels. While the president is suspected to have found solace in 40-year-old Ecology Minister, Chantal Jouanno, the former model is rumoured to be cheating on her husband with pop star Benjamin Biolay.
"It's the gossip of the moment that could become the story of the year. A romance is said to have started a few weeks ago between the First Lady of France and music award winner Benjamin Biolay.
"The rumour started on Twitter and is now on blogs and websites everywhere. It says the presidential marriage is breathing its last breaths. Bruni is in love with Benjamin Biolay and the President has found solace with Jouanno," a British newspaper reported.
It can be recalled that both the president and his wife have had indulged in cheating in their past relationships. While the Italian supermodel had admitted that monogamy becomes boring for her, president cheated on his first wife with Cecilia Ciganer-Albaniz, who later on became his second wife.
