Carla Bruni's Alleged Paramour Benjamin Biolay SUING French News

Posted: Updated:

As the latest twist in the Bruni-Sarkozy affair rumors saga, French pop singer Benjamin Biolay is suing news channel France 24 for broadcasting rumors that he was having an affair with Carla Bruni, AFP reports.

Biolay is seeking 20,000 euros in damages and a Parisian court was expected to hear the case today. His lawyer Isabelle Wekstein said, "Alluding to this hypothetical love affair was clearly a violation of Benjamin Biolay's private life."

Bruni said last week that she had "turned the page" and urged the media to do the same.
