France's scorned former first lady Valerie Trierweiler is set to lift the lid on her tumultuous relationship with the president Thursday in what could prove an explosive memoir.The glamorous journalist met Hollande in the mid-2000s while he was in a relationship with Segolene Royal -- herself a former presidential candidate -- and the pair began a secret liaison.Hollande subsequently left Royal, the mother of his four children, for Trierweiler who became the de facto first lady of France after he was elected in 2012, despite the fact the pair were not married.News of his affair with 42-year-old Gayet caused shockwaves in France in January, and Trierweiler was hospitalised for a week after Closer published pictures of Hollande arriving for secret trysts with the actress at a borrowed flat.
