France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron plans to take legal action over rumors circulating on Twitter that she was born a man and not a woman.
This month, rumors spread on social media platform that France’s first lady was born as a man named Jean-Michel Trogneux.
The 63-year-old wife of French President Emmanuel Macron will now sue the instigators of the conspiracy theory, reported the Paris-based newspaper Le Figaro.
For several days in mid-December, the hashtag #JeanMichelTrogneux was in trend in France on Twitter, according to the prestigious newspaper “Le Figaro”.
The rumors started when the right-wing magazine Faits et Documents published an article in September claiming that it had conducted a three-year investigation into Ms. Macron and that her theory was supported by many experts, the French newspaper CNews reported.
