Fed Up With Affair Allegation, Brigitte Bardot Threatens to Sue Politician

February 11, 2010 (6:08 am) GMT
The 75-year-old French actress will consider to take legal action against politician Patrick Balkany who repeatedly claims that he had an affair with her in the past.

Film icon has threatened to sue a French politician over allegations they had an affair in the 1960s. Patrick Balkany, a personal friend of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, claimed in a book published in January that he enjoyed a fling with Bardot during their youth.

He repeated the allegations on local television show Laurent Ruquier last weekend. Bardot has vehemently denied the claims, insisting she met Balkany for the first time in 2004 - and she's now threatened to sue the politician if he continues to spread the false rumors.

In a statement released by Bardot's lawyer on Wednesday, February 10, the French actress says, "I am beginning to get fed up hearing Mr. Balkany boasting that he had an affair with me, which I have already formally denied."
