It is a love story that will have had many repercussions on Audrey Pulvar. Often categorized as “wife of” Arnaud Montebourg, she had to face many pitfalls.
Audrey Pulvar has had some difficult days in recent weeks. Threatened, on May 23, to be sued by Gérald Darmanin for having “defamed the police”, the head of the socialist list for the regional in Île-de-France has not let his guard down. Audrey Pulvar quickly counter-attacked by filing a complaint against the Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin, for “slanderous denunciation”. If the government member finally withdrew her complaint, this is not the first low blow she has to face. As revealed The world in his article of Friday, May 28, she had to undergo many criticisms during her career. The reason: his love affair with Arnaud Montebourg.
On November 24, 2010, only a year after his arrival on I-TV, Audrey Pulvar is suspended from the air. A few days before, Arnaud Montebourg, Socialist deputy for Saône-et-Loire, had declared himself a candidate for the presidential election in the framework of the primaries of the Socialist Party. When the politician comes to join the ministerial cabinet of François Hollande, Audrey Pulvar is dismissed from France 2, then from France Inter. In July 2012, she was appointed head of Inrockuptible. A little after, the newspaper The world indicates an increase in resignations within the editorial staff of the newspaper implicating “the question of a potential conflict of interest”.
A new start
On November 18, 2018, Audrey Pulvar herself took care of sending a text message to theFrance Media Agency in which she indicated his break with Arnaud Montebourg. After three years of relationship, the couple broke up. Five years later, she gave up her career as a journalist to get into politics.
