French Junior Minister for Ecology Chantal Jouanno

Chantal Jouanno: French Junior Minister for Ecology (secretaire d'Etat en charge de l'Ecologie)

The 40-year-old former karate champion and French politician Chantal Jouanno has been the Secretary of State for Ecology in the French Government of François Fillon since January 21, 2009. She also has the reputation of being a close ally of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The former karate champion Chantal Jouanno, who was twelve times French champion in her category in Karate, is now alleged to be in a relationship with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is already jilted after news sites reported that his wife Mrs. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is currently unofficially living with French singer and musician Benjamin Biolay at his flat in Paris. Also, the French web magazine suchablog.com alleged that Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy had been a close friend of Biolay for many years.

The rumours gained momentum after appearing in a blog on the website of Le Journal du Dimanche that read, "It's the gossip of the moment that could become the story of the year. A romance is said to have started a few weeks ago between the First Lady of France and music award winner Benjamin Biolay. The rumours started on Twitter and are now on blogs and websites everywhere. It says the presidential marriage is breathing its last breaths. Carla Bruni is in love with Benjamin Biolay and the president has found solace with Chantal Jouanno."

The news of the affairs -- Chantal Jouanno-Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy-Benjamin Biolay -- also flashed on popular news sites like Yahoo News France, Le Post and Agoravoxtv, as well as TV news channel i-Tele. However, now the rumours of trouble in the marriage of the Sarkozys have appeared the mainstream French media.

Earlier Mr. Sarkozy reportedly had an affair with Cecilia Ciganer-Albaniz, who later became his second wife, while he was still married to his first wife Marie-Dominique Culioli, the mother of his two elder sons. Mr. Sarkozy and his second wife split during his presidential election campaign of 2007 when Cecilia Ciganer-Albaniz started having an affair with the US publicist Richard Attais.
