As French President Francois Hollande arrives for an official state visit on the heels of having his affair with an actress exposed, the French press are teasing another bombshell fling: President Barack Obama and singer Beyonce.
Paparrazo Pascal Rostain claimed the the Washington Post was planning to report on an alleged affair between the President and the frequent White House entertainer, according to a report published Monday in French newspaper Le Figaro.
“I can assure you the whole world will be talking about this,” Rostain said, as quoted by Poynter.
But Washington’s paper of record quickly threw cold water on the Obama-Beyonce rumor.
Post spokesperson Kris Coratti told Poynter via email that it’s “definitely not true” the newspaper had plans to publish a story on the affair Rostain alleged.
