DJ Sarkozy's expensive flight home
Pierre Sarkozy, a 26-year-old DJ, respected for his skills behind the decks, was flown back home from Ukraine, after falling ill.
He was due to give a performance at a nightclub in the city of Odessa, where he would have mixed songs on the latest DJ equipment.
However, after experiencing what is believed to be food poisoning, he decided to give it a miss.
What has outraged people is the response from president Sarkozy for what was a minor sickness.
The newspaper La Canard Enchaine said that the seven-hour flight was onboard a jet that is usually reserved for ministers on official government business.
A spokesperson for the president said that the decision to fly the DJ back home in such a manner was made by the president's chief doctor.
Pierre specialises in mixing hip hop music and has hung around with stars like Lenny Kravitz and Usher.
