No More Amour

Hollande Splits From First Lady

Oh, the French and their free-spirited romance. After seven years together, Hollande and Valerie Trierweiler are breaking up. Agence France Presse reports that Hollande told the organization “I am making it known that I have put an end to my relationship.” The French President and his long-time girlfriend, who served as de facto First Lady, have ended their relationship just two weeks after reports of Hollande's affair with actress Julie Gayet. Luckily for Hollande, now that this is behind him, he can focus on happier topics, like the European economy.
