MACRON & LE BODYGUARD: French Prez ‘Denied Affair with His Bodyguard’  

FRENCH Prez Emmanuel Macron denied MORE rumours he was having an extra-marital affair with one of his male bodyguards, sparking even more claims about his personal life.

This was the second time the President had to deny that he was gay after similar un-founded claims about an affair with the boss of French radio Mathieu Gallet. 

French paparazzi also allegedly snapped salacious pictures of Macron with Gallet in a forest.

Macron later had Gallet sacked from Radio France and some say this was a cover to dispel talk of a gay affair between the two.

The rumours suggested that the French leader is hiding his sexuality with a political ‘showmance’ with Brigitte Macron.

Mr Macron hit back at the gossip by telling supporters: “I am who I am, I have never had anything to hide.” 

“I hear people saying that I have a secret life or something. It’s not nice for Brigitte (his wife) and because I share all my days and nights with her, she asks me how do I manage it,” Macron said.

He continued: “If over dinners in the city, if on forwarded emails, you’re told that I have a double life with Mathieu Gallet or anyone else – then it’s my hologram that suddenly escaped, but it can’t be me!” .

A French MP was also quoted as saying “Concerning his private life, it is becoming known.” 

“He has a rich gay lobby, which supports him.” according to French news outlet The Local. 

The French President was also pictured half-naked in a French gay magazine during the 2017 Election.

The magazine’s editor Christophe Sorettold told French media in 2017: “Many talk about having revived the controversy about the possible homosexuality of the candidate [Macron],”

“The latter clearly explained himself by indicating that he loved his wife and had no connection with a man. We do not revive this false story; we fight it!”
