Valérie Trierweiler, 48, the partner of French President Francois Hollande, was hospitalized as she was shocked to hear allegations about the French leader`s relationship with another woman.

The French daily Le Figaro reported on Sunday that Trierweiler took medical tests at a hospital and is taking a rest. She reportedly was hospitalized on Friday afternoon, when rumors over Hollande’s affairs with actress Julie Gayet, 42, were made public.

French media is paying keen attention on whether Trierweiler, who has served as the First Lady, will return to the Elysee Palace, after discharging from hospital. Her spokesman Patrice Biancone said, “Trierweiler needs rest for now. She would have had no time to think about her future plan yet.” President Hollande, who has never married, separated from his 30-year partner Ségolène Royal, before living with Trierweiler, a politics reporter, from 2010.
