Rucuss staffFebruary 10, 2014

French photographer Pascal Rostain claims President Barack Obama is having an affair with Beyoncé.

And Rostain claims the Washington Post will publish a story about it on Tuesday. The photographer’s comments were published in highly reputable French newspaper, Le Figaro. It is France’s second largest newspaper.

Rostain told French journalist Jean-Marc Morandini: “You know, at this time, the United States, there is something big that is happening… Besides, it’ll go out tomorrow in the Washington Post, we can not say that it is the gutter press [reporting on an] alleged affair between President Barack Obama and Beyoncé. I can assure you that the world will talk about it.”


The report has already been picked up by Gala, which is like the People magazine of France. Gala is also reporting that Obama and his wife Michelle Obama are heading for a divorce.

The rumor surfaces at the same time as French President François Hollande is traveling to the United States to visit the White House. Hollande is at the center of a romantic controversy himself, having recently split with his partner of several years, journalist Valérie Trierweiler.

Hollande was rumored to have had an affair with a French actress. Rostain is a personal friend of Trierweiler. While le Figaro calls him a “trickster” with a “taste for provocation,” it also reports “there is always some truth in what he says.”

We’ve reached out to the Washington Post for comment and will update with their personal opinion about whether or not the popular singer Beyoncé and is having an affair with the President of the United States.

A spokesperson for the Washington Post told Poynter that the rumor the paper is working on such a story is “definitely not true.”
