French Zemmour sues gossip magazine over pregnancy allegation – POLITICO – .

PARIS – French far-right expert and presidential candidate Eric Zemmour is suing French gossip magazine Closer for its Friday cover, alleging that Sarah Knafo, its de facto campaign manager, is pregnant with her child.

“Whatever happens, always and everywhere, I will firmly and fiercely defend my private life and that of my loved ones”, Zemmour tweeted Friday morning. “Yes to public life. No to voyeurism. Sorry for the perverts.

Olivier Pardo, Zemmour’s lawyer, announcement his client was continuing.

“I’m going to hit them in the pocket, because that’s where it hurts,” Pardo said on BFMTV. “I’m going to sue them for damages and I’m going to win because it’s a clear violation of privacy. ”

In September, the French glossy magazine Paris Match published a photo of Zemmour bathing and hugging Knafo. However, the two never officially confirmed they were a couple. Zemmour, who is married, is trying to appeal to the traditionalist Catholic electorate ahead of the April vote.

Zemmour had also sued Paris Match for invasion of his privacy.

Zemmour’s lawyers reportedly tried unsuccessfully on Thursday to prevent the publication of the Closer issue the next day, according to the weekly Le Point, claiming that it violated his privacy and that of his advisor.

In 2014, the same gossip magazine revealed the relationship of former President François Hollande with actress Julie Gayet.
