PARIS — L’Oréal’s largest single shareholder, Liliane Bettencourt, lashed out at her daughter and at a judge after her house in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, was searched Wednesday as the scandal that is gripping all of France continues to dominate the headlines.
“I am outraged and shocked, hurt and sad to see my private life strewn out and violated again,” said the 87-year-old daughter of L’Oréal’s founder in a handwritten statement issued by her spokeswoman Wednesday evening. “The financial brigade asked me this morning by telephone if I accepted a search of my home at the request of [Judge Isabelle] Prévost-Desprez. Having absolutely nothing to hide, I obviously accepted. I am therefore horribly shocked to learn the locks of my cabinets had been forced and the rooms of my employees searched.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
