French first lady Brigitte Macron sues 'conspiracy theorists' who claim she was born a man | 13 April 2024 | France's elegant first lady, Brigitte Macron, is about to take the extraordinary step of going to trial in a Paris court to fight a [so-called] conspiracy theory - amplified last month by American conservative commentator Candace Owens - that she was born a man. Brigitte, 70, has long been the subject of fascination because of her marriage to the much younger Emmanuel Macron, 46. The two met in northern France when he was a 15-year-old student and she was his drama teacher, and wed in 2007. But now claims, made by two female French Internet influencers, that she was actually born Jean-Michel Trogneux and became a trans woman in the 1980s have electrified France.  Macron’s libel trial is set for June, where she will face off against the right-wing accuser and freelance journalist Natacha Rey, who [claims] that powerful members of the French establishment are hiding Brigitte's true identity. [Ok, so s/he's a straight-up pedophile. Got it.]
