Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni: The True Story
Nicolas Sarkozy became President of France with a broken heart. Shortly after he took office, his second wife, Cecelia, left him for another man. After weeks of brooding alone by night in the Presidential Palace, he asked a friend to arrange a dinner party: and former supermodel turned chart-topping singer/songwriter Carla Bruni was on the guest list.
Though her former suitors included Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Prime Minister Laurent Fabius and billionaire Donald Trump, she had never found her heart’s true desire: a man with, as she put it, ‘nuclear power’. And Sarkozy had his finger on the button. The two flirted all night, and within a few short months the President of France had a new fiancée.
Based on exclusive interviews with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and many of the French elite close to both her and the President, this is the true and previously untold story of how Europe’s most glamorous couple met, fell instantly in love, and married, to the amazement of the world’s press. Includes an exclusive update chapter, dealing with rumours of affairs on the part of both President and First Lady.
