French gossip magazines are set for a bumper week of sales, with the first photos of president Nicolas Sarkozy with his new girlfriend. She is former model-turned-singer Carla Bruni and the couple were caught on camera together at Disneyland in Paris at the weekend, although given the very public choice of venue ‘caught’ may perhaps be too strong a word.
The president’s office has issued a coy ‘No Comment’.
The fifty-two-year old father of three has been divorced from his former wife Cecilia for two months. Bruni, who is 14 years his junior, was one of the world’s top-earning fashion models before she turned her talents to music. She has a child from a previous relationship.
