Biography - A Short Wiki

French novelist who scandalized and enthralled the public. She is best known for writing Gigi, a work that was later adapted into stage and film musical comedies of the same title.

She was born Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette and was the daughter of a military officer. In 1893, she married Henry Gauthier-Villars; after leaving him, she had several affairs with both men and women. She married her second husband, Henri de Jouvenel, in 1912, and the couple had a daughter prior to their 1924 divorce (which was the result of Colette’s affair with her stepson, Bertrand de Jouvenel).
