A French magazine is reporting that the Washington Post is working on a “media bomb” about how President Barack Obama and Beyoncé had an affair.
Gala, a more French and more tabloid-y version of Vanity Fair, claims that Barack and Michelle Obama will soon divorce and that the president’s affair with Jay Z’s wife is part of the reason.
According to Google translate, the Gala story claims says that a French paparazzo has knowledge that The Washington Post will report the bombshell news on Tuesday:
This morning, the paparazzi Pascal Rostain invited the largest direct media on Europe 1, supported this rumor by saying that the American press ( Washington Post in this case) would report tomorrow Tuesday a ” affair ” between Barack Obama and Beyoncé. “You know, at this time, the United States , there is something big that is happening ,” said he explained to micro Jean- Marc Morandini. Moreover, it will come out tomorrow in the Washington Post. We can not say that it is the gutter press, a supposed connection between President Barack Obama and Beyoncé. I can assure you that the world will talk . “
Beyoncé and Jay Z have been longtime supporters of the president and have held several big-ticket fundraisers for him. Beyoncé performed during Obama’s 2013 inauguration ceremony and at one point, the two got dangerously close to each other’s cheeks right in front Jay Z, Michelle and of millions of viewers.
The French press will just have to continue working on their Obama-Beyoncé fanfic using things they pulled out of thin air.
