London, April 17 (ANI): A French pop singer has won 3,000 pounds in damages from a TV news station that alleged a liaison between him and France’s first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
Benjamin Biolay had sought 20,000 pounds from the France-24 news channel for the “serious harm” he said he suffered from the allegation, reports the Daily Express.
Biolay’s lawsuit was one of two brought after internet rumours emerged last month that President Nicolas Sarkozy, and his wife were having extra-marital affairs.
France-24 carried the information in its international press review.
Biolay’s lawyer, Isabelle Wekstein, said she was satisfied with the court decision. (ANI)
