Paris - (Trompe l'Oeil): France's Premiere Madame Carla Bruni Sarkozy has hit out at 'ridiculous' taunts that she might be Vanesssa Perroncel's birth mother.
"Imbeciles! Just because we are both gorgeous, famous, incredibly talented, sophisticated, sexy, desired by an adoring public, bla bla...
"Where's the proof?"
The French PM's wife said she had sent flowers to the beleaguered Chelsea WAG 'purely as a gesture of sympathy' after reading about the John Terry shagging saga in Paris tabloid Le Coq Sportif.
Bruni, 69, is famous for a string of famous shags as well as her acting and singing career.
Among lovers alleged and wannabe are ex-French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius, singers Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and a ragbag of mystery also-rans including Léos Carax, Charles Berling, Arno Klarsfeld, Vincent Perez, Louis Bertignac (Who they?- Ed)
Perroncel's scalps are claimed to be 'half the Premiership strikers' if UK redtops are to be believed.
PR guru Max Cliffhanger reckons he's hit the jackpot.
