Anonymous[size=10pt]French female justice minister Rachida Dati 'had eight boyfriends when she fell pregnant with love child'[/size]
By Peter Allen In Paris[size=7pt]PUBLISHED: 14:46 GMT, 4 November 2012 | UPDATED: 07:52 GMT, 5 November 2012[/size]
France's first female justice minister was seeing up to eight boyfriends at around the time she had a love child, it was claimed today.
Revelations about Rachida Dati's extraordinarily busy love life have emerged in a bitter row about the paternity of the 47-year-old's daughter.
Multi-millionaire businessman Dominique Desseigne, 68, is refusing to take a DNA test after being accused of being the girl's father.[table]
[/table][table][tr][td]Bitter battle: Dominique Desseigne, right, is refusing to take a paternity test to determine whether he is the father
[/td][/tr][tr][td]of Rachida Dati's daughter. Desseigne's lawyers claims that Dati, left, was involved with eight men when she had a love child
Ms Dati has gone to court to try and get him to admit that he fathered Zohra, now three, during a passionate encounter in 2008.
But Mr Desseigne tells this weekend's M, the Le Monde magazine, that he was one of many who had an 'adventure' with Ms Dati, and that he 'does not know' if he is Zohra's father. Moreover, his lawyers have suggested in written evidence that she was involved in 'up to eight relationships'
at the time.
These included 'a TV host, a minister, a chief executive office, a Spanish prime minister, a brother of Nicolas Sarkozy, a Qatari Attorney General and the heir to a luxury goods empire,' says the M article.
Mr Desseigne has now refused an application made by Ms Dati at a court in Versailles, near Paris, to submit to a test, M reveals.
According to French law, anybody approached for a test can say no, although Ms Dati is said to have other proof, including sworn statements from her staff that Mr Desseigne constantly visited 'their' child soon after she was born.
Those suspected of being Zohra's father in the past have included a range of public figures, ranging from former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Anzar to former French president Mr Sarkozy.[table]

Ms Dati, a notorious self-publicist, encouraged the speculation in a range of interviews in magazines like Paris Match, in which she also appeared in glamorous photo shoots.
The latest revelations will further the reputation of French politicians, and other public figures, as philandering adulterers who never stop having illicit sex.
Last month it emerged that Valerie Trierweiler, the current first lady, was at one stage the mistress of both Francois Hollande, the future Socialist president, and Patrick Devedjiana, conservative minister.
All three involved, including Ms Trierweiler, were married or in long term relationships at the time.
Ms Dati, who comes from a North African immigrant background and who has one failed marriage behind her, has been single since her early 20s. She became the star of Mr Sarkozy's ethnically diverse 'rainbow cabinet' in 2007 in an attempt to get minorities into government, but was unceremoniously sacked in 2009 when it was claimed she was not up to the job.
Mr Desseigne, who is worth more than £500 million, was a close business ally of the Mr Sarkozy.The former president famously celebrated his election win in Le Fouquet's, a chic restaurant on the Champs Elysee which Mr Desseigne owns.
Mr Desseigne has two grown up children from his marriage to his late wife Diane Barriere-Desseigne, who died in 2001.
Ms Dati's lawyer, Marie-Christine Guillot-Bouhours, today declined to comment on the case.

It seems like a typical scenary of a French movie.November 6, 2012 at 4:48 pm #402091
People who are immoral in their private life, are likely also immoral in other, more serious ways. Also, what's an algerian/moroccan doing as a justice minister of France?November 6, 2012 at 5:04 pm #402092
Well, I dont know, but it is pretty obvious how she got there, judging by list of her lovers. PS It is funny, how she is trying to claim richest of them as father of child.November 6, 2012 at 5:43 pm #402093
Sarkozy is lucky to no longer be the President while this scandal is taking place.November 8, 2012 at 1:46 pm #402094
Seems only genetic examination can determine who is the father of her children, unlikely she had logs..December 9, 2012 at 10:15 pm #402095
I voted for "LOL".
These specimens of the woman tribe exist in huge numbers … femme fatale so to speak.
You can't blame her for using her "niche", although you can blame the men who fell for it. It should be obvious enough that men of these status' are tagets to this.
She does what she does best, and she knows it's effective. She'll probably even continue until the day comes when she meets her match – an homme fatale and the reverse would happen. That's usually how it goes.December 9, 2012 at 10:29 pm #402096
These appears to me to be merely the standard behavior of a French woman.December 9, 2012 at 10:32 pm #402097
