Hollande's kids 'don't want anything to do' with Valerie Trierweiler
London, July 9 (ANI): The children of French President Francois Hollande apparently don't ever want to see his live-in girlfriend, Valerie Trierweiler, again.
In the latest episode of the Elysee Palace soap opera, they made it clear that they want nothing to do with the increasingly vindictive 47-year-old.
She had caused outrage last month by expressing her support for a politician standing against Segolene Royal, 58, in parliamentary elections.
Royal is the former partner of Hollande and the mother of his children, Thomas, 26, Clemence, 25, Julien, 22, and Flora, 20.
Following Trierweiler's supportive tweet, the Socialist politician had lost the election, her career has all but ended, and has been widely ridiculed across France.
This led to Hollande phoning each of his children individually about the saga, but they all told him that they never wanted to see Trierweiler again.
"They certainly made efforts with Valerie for their father. Thomas played the game, especially during the presidential campaign, but now it's over," the Daily Mail quoted a senior Socialist Party source as telling Gala magazine.
"They have experienced pain like anyone else whose parents split up, but they are very close to her mother, and they support her one hundred per cent," the source said.
In turn, a 'friend' of Trierweiler, who has three sons of her own, has contacted Le Parisien newspaper to say that she 'regrets' what happened.
"I made a mistake," Trierweiler told the friend, who added: "She did not properly calculate the consequences her tweet would have on the authority of the head of state, on the Socialist Party, her children and those of Francois Hollande."
Mysteriously, Trierweiler's personal biography has disappeared from the Elysee Palace website. (ANI)
