Nicolas Sarkozy, Cecilia Attias Hold Private Meeting In New York

French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited this afternoon with his ex-wife Cecilia for what is believed to be the first time since their 2007 divorce, a source tells Huffington Post.

The meeting included Sarkozy's new wife, Carla Bruni, and Cecilia's husband, Richard Attias, the global events producer. The two couples met at Attias' townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where a stretch of East 71st Street was closed for traffic.

Sarkozy is in New York for the United Nations summit on climate change.
