Zut alors. He’s just proposed to Mick Jagger’s old mistress (and Eric Clapton’s sloppy seconds).
Nicolas Sarkozy will marry his supermodel lover Carla Bruni next month – in time for the two to enjoy a state visit to Britain.
The wedding will take place in Paris on February 8 or 9, according to a newspaper owned by a close friend of the French president.
This will be two weeks after Mr Sarkozy celebrates his 53rd birthday, and less than four months after his divorce from his second wife, Cecilia, also a model.
Nice to know he’s not superficial or anything.
Superficial-as-anything update: The French are not amused. The Beeb has the deets.
