Lady and the Tramp

Carla Bruni has reportedly befriended a homeless man who lives near her home in Paris’s 16th arrondissement, giving him money and talking about music.

The homeless man said the two had struck up conversation as the Italian-born model and singer passed him on the daily school run with her son.

He added that the two discussed books or music, and the first lady had even given him a signed copy of her latest album, as well as one or two 50- or 100-euro notes.

The wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy had even offered to put the man up in a hotel, but he turned down Ms Bruni’s offer to put him up in a hotel room for a month.

“It’s not that I enjoy being in the street but I’ve got my habits,” he was quoted as saying. “People say it’s cold. That’s true but I’m well covered-up with the military-type duvet provided by Carla, which keeps me warm.”
