An MP in Germany sparked outrage after he left his family to start a new life with his ex-porn star lover.
Hagen Reinhold, 44, is a member of the Free Democratic Party (FDP), part of Germany's current ruling coalition, and has been a sitting MP since 2017.
He had been with his 51-year-old partner Karoline Preisler, a fellow member of the same political party, for 16 years – but has shocked the nation after abandoning her, and the three children they share after falling for another woman.

His new lover is Annina Semmelhaack who, under the pseudonym Annina Ucatis, used to appear in raunchy porn films where she became known for her large breasts.
Ucatis, 43, now hopes to stand for the FDP in local elections next year and began attending mentorship sessions with Reinhold, where their relationship quickly blossomed, the Daily Mail reported.
The economics graduate was previously married to millionaire real estate mogul Theodor Semmelhaack, 65, and ran her own real estate agency, Holsteiner Grund & Boden.
She described her new relationship as "a great love" and said she and Reinhold were "going into a happy future together."
Meanwhile, Reinhold added: "We got to know and love each other in the FDP."

But not everybody is happy.
A seemingly betrayed Preisler took to Twitter after news broke of the couple's affair, writing: "The past few months have been bitter for me."
She added: "After years with Hagen Reinhold (…) and politics in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, there is something new to do."
When a friend responded: "Is this a joke?" the politician replied: "No, it is love."
She said she is moving back to Berlin and even giving up her job as an MP in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, in northeast Germany.
There were perhaps some clues that Reinhold and his new sweetheart were getting cozy early on – back in June, Ucatis took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair sitting together during their "mentoring and skills training".

She said at the time: "During the last week of the German Bundestag session, I visited the office of Hagen Reinhold, MdB.
"The team gave me a very warm welcome and involved me in the political work.
"Thank you very much for your participation and your commitment, I felt very comfortable with you!"
