AFP/Yahoo ^ | 1/25/2014 | Sylvie Maligorne

Paris (AFP) - 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 and not as head of state as the matter concerned his private life, Hollande told AFP over the phone: "I wish to make it known that I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler."

"Trierweiler's reputation suffered, with many deeming her somewhat arrogant. A recent poll said she was the least-liked French First Lady in modern history.

"French glossy Closer broke news of Hollande's affair with Gayet on January 10, splashing photos of a man resembling Hollande arriving for alleged trysts at a flat near the Elysee Palace on a scooter."

Striking parallels with the current residents of 1600 Pennsylvania. "Least-liked first lady." Yeah, we've got that.

The president tooling around town on a scooter? Hilarious. Aren't there photos of obama doing that? So where was he going that day?!

It would be cool if she got to keep the Presidential palace and kicked him out.

He cheated on somebody else with her, what made her think he wouldn’t eventually do the same to her.

I wonder if Valerie will go motor-mouth on Hollande? Surely, she has plenty to tell.

Exactly. What in the world did she expect, especially with them not being married? Making this situation public right before the “estranged” departs for India, it seems like he might have a big rendezvous planned with the new one.

I didn't know that you could cheat on a person you're not married to.

From Wikipedia:

From the late 1970s, Ségolène Royal was the partner of François Hollande, now President of France, whom she met at ENA. The couple had four children.

They were neither married (considering it too "bourgeois" nor bound by a PACS (pacte civil de solidarité, which provides for a civil union between two adults, regardless of gender), contrary to the rumors.

What’s the French equivalent of Arkansas? My guess is a place on the south side of the Mediterranean where the locals speak French.

This is one frog (pardon the pun) who never made handsome prince. Valerie is moving in to Hollande’s “middle class” apartment in Paris on her return from Mumbai. I suspect he gave her the apartment and a hunk of cash to avoid her getting a book deal. I imagine the prior long term mistress, with the kiddies, must be having the last laugh at both of them.

It would seem Valerie has learned a valuable lesson.

If they’ll do it WITH you, they’ll do it TO you!

The French Emperor President has requested, urging civility, that his former live in be referred to as the former first strumpet and not former first whore, ho, slut, etc.

I will give the lady some credit, she left. How many times in our country does the catting around politicians wife just stand next to her husband at the obligatory press conference.
Our politicians partners, who are married to the scumbag, do nothing about it. At least this lady had some self respect.

-— Excuse me, what is a “partner”? -—

Its hard to say. On one level, it’s anyone you schtup or sodomize. OTOH, it can be a sex partner that you occupy a home with for any length of time.

Anyway, they say that it’s superior to marriage for some reason.

Is it me or has the MSM STOPPED using the terms, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, spouse, and STARTED using the word PARTNER for everything. Heterosexual or lgbt gets the same term. MSM mainstreaming PARTNER, like never before.
