Emmanuel Macron also happened to be a school friend of the Auziere's daughter, Laurence, at the time.'When [Brigitte's] husband learns the truth, his reaction is violent,' writes Brun.'To be replaced by a schoolmate of his daughter, by an adolescent whom he had often received at his home?That's a difficult wound to heal.'Mr Auziere was working in finance at the time, and had been enjoying a happy life with his wife and three children in Amiens.'And the banker did not procrastinate – he leaves,' the book explains, quoting an old neighbour as saying: 'He was not seen again.Mr Auziere was born and grew up in the former French African colony of Cameroon, but it is not known where he is today.His children with Brigitte – Laurence, Sebastian and Tiphanie – are said to maintain contact, despite also being extremely close to Mr Macron.Brun quotes a friend of Mrs Macron who explains that the period is a 'wound' in her life which she does not enjoy speaking about.'But she has sometimes told me she lost all her friends,' the acquaintance went on.
In June last year she disguised herself so as to attend one of the pop star's concerts in Paris, the book claims.Auziere had a 'violent reaction' when he heard she was having an affair, the biography claims.He is said to have stormed out of the family home and was incandescent with rage over the relationship.She is pictured with husband Emmanuel in May last year at the Elysee Palace'Being the last of a large family, she benefited from a large degree of freedom,' a friend recalled.Another remembered that 'for good marks, she once got an entire jewellery set in silver.'The book also delves into Brigitte's first marriage with Andre-Louis Auziere, a banker described as 'nice, but not very talkative' - the opposite of his extroverted spouse.
