The French actress rumored to be having an affair with French President Francois Hollande is suing Closer, the French magazine that first reported the alleged affair. Julie Gayet wants more than $73,000 for invasion of privacy and legal fees, CNN reports, citing Closer. Hollande, too, has threatened to take legal action, but the BBC reports he's since decided not to. He has yet to confirm or deny the affair. Meanwhile, Closer has promised more details and photos in tomorrow's issue, the Independent reports. (More Julie Gayet stories.)
