France's first couple breaks up

  • French president Francois Hollande confirmed that the stories of his breakup with Valerie Trierweiler are true. 

    "I wish to make it known that I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler," he said. Reports suggest that he's the one who took the initiative and "wanted to make it official before Valerie Trierweiler's departure for India" to attend a charity event.

    News of the breakup comes after Hollande's linkup with actress Julie Gayet, who he confirmed to be seeing. Gayet is not happy about the fact that her privacy was violated and plans on suing Closer.
