WASHINGTON--">First Lady Michelle Obama never said her life was "hell" in the White House, the French Embassy here and her own office said in statements Thursday, denying a claim attributed by French First Lady Caral Bruni-Sarkozy in a new book.

"Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy distances herself completely from the content of the book "Carla and the Ambitious", which was not authorized and the authors alone are responsible for its contents. The words attributed to the First Lady of the United States were never said," said Emmanuel Lenain, a spokesman for the French Embassy here.

Mrs. Obama spokesman Catherine McCormick-Lelyveld said in a statement, "the First Lady never said that."
