France's first lady has ended a stay more than a week-long at a hospital where she went to rest after a gossip magazine's report about an alleged affair between President Francois Hollande and an actress.

A member of Valerie Trierweiler's entourage confirmed she left La Pitie-Salpetriere hospital yesterday.

Closer magazine reported that Hollande was seeing Julie Gayet.

The president has said he would clarify his domestic situation before a February 11 state visit to Washington, when Trierweiler would normally accompany him.
