French Prez drives through streets on scooter at night to meet ‘love’: Closer

A French magazine on Friday alleged that Francois Hollande routinely drives through the streets of Paris on a scooter to spend the night with his mistress, raising concerns for the security of the head-of-State.

Hollande reacted furiously to the allegation backed up by photos reportedly showing the President entering the flat of actress Julie Gayet but did not deny it, threatening legal action over what he called an attack on his right to privacy.

Closer’s Friday edition carried a seven-page report on the 59-year-old president’s alleged infidelity under the headline “Francois Hollande and Julie Gayet the president’s secret love”. “It’s a real passion that has turned their lives upside down and makes them take insane risks,” the magazine wrote. To back up its claims, the magazine printed photos of Gayet, 41, arriving at a flat in an upmarket part of Paris on December 30, not far from the Elysee palace where Hollande lives. Half-an-hour later, a man whom they identify as Hollande’s bodyguard inspects the hallway of the apartment block before the arrival of a scooter with two helmeted men on board, one of whom they say is Hollande although his face is never revealed. The bodyguard, however, does show his face and is identified as part of Hollande’s official security detail.

The next day, according to the photos, the alleged bodyguard arrives at the flat around 8am with a small bag that Closer says contains croissants.

I don't have any interest in going to the US and working there. I am totally interested in working for Indian films.

Sunil Grover is pretty sober. He has overdone (prankster bit) so much that people might find his normal self different.
