No, they never *ever* make up things like this.

Come on, mate. Just tabloid shit.

Like I said earlier, Gasquet is about a thousand times closer to breaking out of the closet than he is breaking out in tennis.

The door is open Richard, just come on out and join your buddies like Escude, tennisfancroatia, silverwhite, IvanLjubicic and all the other MTFers who have grabbed a hold of the 'Open Door' policy.

Yeah but there is such thing as libel. The French media are known for their cutting edge news. The rumours about Richard being gay have been around for a while. Its the same thing with Amelie the French press asked and pressed and sure enough she came out. The exact same thing will happen with Richard.

Clearly you haven't looked at any papers lately.

Seriously even if there was any truth it would be like them just touching hands or something. How very gay.

Even if he is gay is it NOT okay for the press to hound him till he says something. He's like 20 lay off.

Mo - she came out purely and entirely BY HERSELF. When she was barely 18 years of age.

Quite a difference, I daresay.

Who is this Lagardere guy and what is his connection to the tennis world?

From what I have been told by French friends in Paris Gasquet and Lagardere are not hiding that they are together. In fact, they frequent the French bars and clubs hand in hand I am told. So of course the French press were going to start talking about it. Mon Dieu!

Google is your friend.

I'm not sure what his link is with Gasquet but he's a business man who's created "Team Lagerdère", which is a group that specializes in doing research for the elite in the sports world.
http://www.teamlagardere.com/staff_team_lagardere.html

He's also member of the "Académie des sports"
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acad%C3%A9mie_des_Sports

So, I'm guessing that this team lagardère is where Richard knows him from?

Un SMS de Arnaud Lagardère destiné à Richard Gasquet après sa victoire contre Monfils à l'open d'Australie atterit sur le mauvais portable. En effet, sur le répertoire du portable d'Arnaud, on devine assez aisément que Richard Gasquet n'est pas listé sous son vrai nom. Quel pseudo a choisi Arnaud Lagardère pour lister son amant ? Personne ne le sait. Tout ce qu'on sait, c'est que le SMS destiné à Gasquet est parvenu à un proche de Sarkozy qui, après avoir trop ébruité la mégarde, a répondu à Arnaud Lagardère par SMS en lui indiquant qu'il avait fait erreur.

All is said.
I'm surprised and disapointed by Le Point which is a respected newspaper. Well, I guess french medias get nervous by the elections, so they tried some jokes...

Why are they pestering him - surely he is entitled to some privacy - he isn't some z list celeb desperately seeking stardom.

Poor Richard got plucked by that chicken hawk. He could do better.

If I remember correctly she had been pressured by the media asking who was the girl in her box all the time.


Arnaud Lagardère is the son of Jean-Luc Lagardère (who died in 2003). Both father and son are/were businessmen. Arnaud is very very rich. He is a chairman of EADS (the company that owns Airbus) and he owns several media publications (including the French tennis magazine).
He created the Team Lagardère that most of the top french players are part of.

Ah, the old double negative...

They both deny it, so it must be true!
