French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has been seeing a therapist for eight years, she has apparently revealed.
The former model allegedly disclosed the information during the filming of a documentary about her life, which is yet to be released.
In the programme, Carla "will bare her soul to the French people", an insider says.
"For the first time ever, a serving first lady will speak on television about the reasons which drove her to seek therapy eight years ago."
"The questions that she will answer include why she sought the help of a therapist, what happened during the sessions and why she has continued them for so long."
The 41-year-old has rarely been out of the spotlight since her marriage to Nicolas Sarkozy two years ago. She hit headlines recently when nude photos from her earlier modelling career were published.
