Rumours that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy are both having affairs are gaining momentum in France.
The suggestion that the couple were both committing adultery first emerged on Twitter, the microblogging website. It was followed by a report in the Sunday newspaper le Journal du Dimanche.
The first 'tweet' claimed that Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy had become romantically involved with Benjamin Biolay, a musician and a winner at France's recent Victoires de la Musique awards.
It then claimed that the jilted Mr Sarkozy had swiftly found solace in the arms of his 40-year-old ecology minister Chantal Jouanno, also a French karate champion.
French web magazine suchablog.com alleged that Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy had been a close friend of Biolay for many years and was now unofficially living with him at his flat in Paris.
The rumours were given extra weight after being reported in an blog on the website of Le Journal du Dimanche.
The paper wrote: "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."
The Journal du Dimanche added: "It says the presidential marriage is breathing its last breaths. Carla Bruni is in love with Benjamin Biolay and the president has found solace with Chantal Jouanno."
The same story has also been reported by other established news sites including Yahoo News France, Le Post and Agoravoxtv, as well as TV news channel i-Tele.
It is the first time since Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy and Mr Sarkozy met at a Paris dinner party in November 2007 that there have been repeated rumours suggestions the marriage is in crisis.

News Media Style: So-called “beautiful people” with ugly lives.
I asked her not to say anything.
I don’t believe this. They just got married. Some decorum is in order
If the French ever had to use their supposed nuclear weapons, I think they’d find them covered in condoms.
Ha...a Frenchman. Hide your women and poodles. ;-)
This look like MO’s tracks.
Maybe a duel will ensue: baguettes at twenty paces.
Isn’t marital infidelity normal for Europeans?
Unfortunately, part of the French culture. Everything you have ever heard about it is true.
Endemic with the French KK, keep in mind this is nothing new as Sarko and Carla were having an affair while still previously married.
Spring is in the air, the flowers are blooming, gardens are being planted, and Affairs are coming to light...typical France.
Isn’t that typical? Why am I not surprised?
C’est la France.
That’s sad. I thought they were trying for a baby.
I hope they work it out or end it clean, it really is sad.
How . . . . . French.
Marital infidelity is a cherished institution in France. Has been for ages. No big deal. Just the degenerate Frenchies doing what they always do.
