FIRST lady Michelle Obama flew into a fury after photos of her hubby’s flirty behavior with Thailand’s stunning prime minister “humiliated” her in front of the world, insiders say.
When cameras caught President Barack Obama trading lingering looks with glamorous Thai leader Yingluck Shinawatra, his wife hit the roof, sources say.
“Michelle’s explosion of jealousy has been building for some time,” said the source. “It’s bad enough Barack basks in the attention of Hollywood beauties like Kerry Washington and Scarlett Johansson, but this was an official engagement with photos flashed around the globe.
“Michelle felt humiliated that Barack would be so uncaring of her feelings to behave like that. She read him the riot act for conducting himself like a ‘player’ rather than the president of the United States.”
The charmer-in-chief and Thailand’s pretty female politico were snapped laughing together and getting touchy-feely during a state dinner in Bangkok on Nov. 18.
“From the way he’s smiling at her, it’s clear that President Obama is very taken with the prime minister,” body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass told The ENQUIRER.
“She’s looking up into his eyes, which shows that she admires him – and he LOVES the admiration! He was clearly happy to be there, and he was especially happy to be with this woman.”
As The ENQUIRER has reported, the Obamas’ 20-year marriage has long been hanging by a thread. Michelle has met with divorce attorneys three times over the years and once had legal papers drawn up to make a split official, say sources.
The first couple put on a show of togetherness through Obama’s successful re-election campaign, but the source claims cracks are beginning to show again.
“Michelle felt her husband was making her look ridiculous in Bangkok,” said the source. “Whatever their issues are behind closed doors, Michelle demands respect when the public is watching. When he got home, the president had a lot of explaining to do. I’m sure he was wishing he’d behaved in a far more statesmanlike manner.”
