Other Relationship Information about Nicolas Sarkozy and Cecilia Attias:
In 1988, she left her husband for Nicolas and divorced Martin one year later.
Between 2002 and 2005, the couple often appeared together on public occasions, with Cecilia acting as the chief aide for her husband. On 25 May 2005, however, the Swiss newspaper Le Matin revealed that she had left Sarkozy for French-Moroccan national Richard Attias, head of Publicis in New York. There were other accusations of a private nature in Le Matin, which lead to Sarkozy suing the paper.
In January 2006, a reconciliation took place. In early 2006, Sarkozy suggested to the press that he had welcomed his wife back from the USA, although the exact circumstances of the reconciliation are not known.
