In what may prove to be the most “wtf” moment in tabloid journalism coming out of France, a well-known photographer is saying that President Obama is currently involved in a love affair with Beyoncé.
I’ll now allow you a moment to guffaw at the news.
Ok, moment over.
Pascal Rostain’s comments were published in France’s magazine, Le Figaro, and he also says the accusations will make their way to the Washington Post.
Rostain told the publication:
“You know, at this time, the United States, there is something big that is happening… Besides, it’ll go out tomorrow in the Washington Post, we can not say that it is the gutter press [reporting on an] alleged affair between President Barack Obama and Beyoncé. I can assure you that the world will talk about it.”
Interestingly enough, France’s own President François Hollande is currently involved in his own affair allegations, right on the eve of his visit to the United States.
Hollande leaves France amid sinking popularity ratings and swirling reports that he cheated on his partner of seven years with a younger movie actress. The former French first lady Valerie Trierweiler — whom Obama said in November he was looking forward to hosting — will not come to the White House now that Hollande has announced their split.
France’s President says his private life is private, but he’s not denying the affair. Now he will come to America solo for one of Washington’s most tradition-bound events, where protocol dictates nearly everything and a slip-up could wind up offending a top ally.
And there you have it, today’s “wtf” news, courtesy of the France.
