Prince William Sleeps on The Streets With Homeless

Denis, who sleeps on the streets near the first lady's home, fell into conversation with Bruni-Sarkozy as she passed by. "She asks after me, she gives me one or two 50- or 100-euro notes," Denis told Closer magazine.


Bruni-Sarkozy first told of her rapport with Denis in the French magazine for the homeless, Macadam. "Over time we've built up a friendly relationship. I stop sometimes to greet him and very soon we talk about books and music."

According to the report in Closer Bruni-Sarkozy even gave Denis a copy of her CD.

"My friends from the street told me that as (the CD) has got her signature, it's worth a lot of money. I couldn't care less, I prefer to keep it. Having said that, I lent it to someone two months ago who hasn't given in back."

Denis also told the magazine that Bruni-Sarkozy offered to put him up in a hotel.

"I refused," he said. "It's not that I enjoy being in the street, but I've got my habits. People say it's cold. That's true, but I'm well covered-up. What's more, Carla gave me a military-type duvet, which keeps me warm," he told Closer.

"She's a great lady, you know, Carla, even if she doesn't appear to be."
