The Romanian President’s wife, Maria Basescu denied recent rumours appeared lately in the media, claiming that she intended to divorce, by a press release issued by the Presidential Administration: “Due to misinformation recently promoted in public regarding a possible divorce. Mrs. Maria Basescu would like to mention that this information is false and that it is regrettable that some journalists publicly launched these allegations that are destined to affect the life and image of the Basescu family”, the press release issued by the Public Communication Department of the Presidential Administration shows.
Cotidianul.ro published recently an article announcing an imminent divorce in the Basescu family, quoting sources from lawyers’ circles claiming that Romania’s first lady Maria Basescu is preparing to divorce the head of the state. According to the publication, the couple shares no other relation than short-time protocol-based public appearances and empty superficial gestures for a very long time.
“Different and credible sources declare the certainty of the fact that Romania’s first lady is looking for lawyers to divorce. Besides short-time protocol-based public appearances and empty superficial gestures, the couple shares no other relation for a very long time. Besides, the president’s family is divided between mother and father. One of the daughters supports Traian Basescu, the other is by the side of her mother and has a cold war with Elena Udrea. The tensioned situation also translates in a smouldering conflict between Elena Basescu and Ioana Basescu.
Elena Basescu is desperate to have a son, this is why she left in the USA where she attempted in vitro fertilization with predetermined genre”, the quoted source said.
