Following the blame game, Dati has been deprived her of her chauffeur-driven limousine and three bodyguards, reports The Telegraph.

The rumours of extra-martial affairs were rubbished by the French president.

According to reports, Nicolas took “retaliatory action” against the 44-year-old Dati, the night his ruling Right-wing UMP party suffered a drubbing in the first round of regional elections on March 14.

Dati created history in 2007 when Nicolas made her the first Muslim woman to hold a top ministerial position.
