Carla Bruni seeking psychiatric help

BruniPressures in the world of glamour have cracked many. And, former Italian supermodel and France's First Lady Carla Bruni is no exception. For the first time, 41-year-old Bruni who married flamboyant French President Nicolas Sarkozy two years back, is said to have admitted to seeing a psychotherapist for the past eight years.

The former Italian supermodel-turned singer has made the confession during filming of a documentary about her life for French TV. But, details are scant about what psychological problems she actually suffers from, the Daily Mail reported.

"Bruni will bare her soul to the French people. She is turning the traditions of how French First Ladies have behaved on their head. "The questions that she will answer include why she sought the help of a therapist, what happened during the sessions and why she has continued them for so long," the newspaper reported citing a report on 'Plurielles.Fr' website. Bruni has been constantly in the media spotlight since marrying Sarkozy almost two years ago. Naked photos from her earlier career as a model are regularly published in French magazines and newspapers.

The French First Lady has also courted controversy with frequent remarks about her string of ex-lovers apart from regular "undiplomatic quips" about her husband. She has been accused of driving hubby Sarkozy to physical collapse with a gruelling fitness and diet regime.

The French media is now expecting another flood of revelations when her confessions about her eight years in therapy are broadcast later this month. France's 'Purepeople' website said: "She is so unpredictable and can be so open about her life, that there is no knowing what she's going to say. We don't know if President Sarkozy has seen the footage, but we are sure he must have vetted it."
