The court conclusively repudiated the lawsuit initiated by the consort of Macron against the calumnious aspersions that she is transgender.

French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife, Brigitte Macron, has failed in a lawsuit she filed in Paris against two women who spread rumors online about her alleged transgender background. According to a court document published by Agence France Presse, the lawsuit was dismissed.

Brigitte Macron, her three children and her brother filed a complaint in February 2022. The first lady of France was outraged by the appearance of a video on YouTube, which claimed that she was previously a man named Jean-Michel Tronier (Tronnier is the maiden name of Brigitte Macron) and that she had undergone a sex change operation.

The plaintiffs sought compensation for the violation of their right to privacy, but the court quashed their claim, finding that the facts set out therein qualified as public defamation.

Although the civil action was dismissed, Brigitte Macron can still win the case, as she also filed a criminal complaint specifically for “public defamation”. The trial in this case is ongoing.
