Michelle Obama made a somber yet stylish appearance as she stepped out in Madrid yesterday – just hours before a convicted fraudster claimed he had cocaine-fueled sex with her husband Barack during an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson .
The former first lady, 59, was photographed meeting with former Spanish ambassador James Costos – with whom her husband worked during his time as president – during a trip to Spain on Wednesday.
While Michelle kept a straight face during the meeting, she exuded a cool and calm aura in her vacation outfit, which included a low-cut dark denim maxi dress layered with a light cardigan.
She paired the summery ensemble with a stack of colorful bracelets on one wrist and statement silver earrings, as well as a pair of black strappy mules.

The mother of two had her hair tied back in a high ponytail on top of her head and completed the look with a scarf tied around her head to keep her hair back.
Former President Barack’s wife also carried what appeared to be a black Bottega Veneta handbag, which retails for $2,900, and got a flawless manicure with bright white painted nails.
The outing comes after former Fox News anchor Tucker Carson’s interview with convicted fraudster Larry Sinclair aired on his X Show.
Tucker first made these claims during his appearance on the popular Adam Carolla Show in late August. He claimed that Barack had a homosexual love affair in the 1990s, but that the media did not report it after it came to light in 2008 due to threats from the Obama campaign.
Tucker spoke with Larry about his longstanding claims of a drug-fueled feud with the former president, whom he said he met through a limo driver.
The fraudster claimed he did cocaine with the former president and performed oral sex on him twice in Chicago in 1999 when he was a senator.
Larry claimed to have smoked crack with Barack – who he said had “certainly” had sex with men before – and said he returned to his hotel room the next night to do the same.
Larry, a convicted fraudster, first made the claims more than 15 years ago and never provided evidence to support his claims against the former president.
He said he knew Barack was married, but the marriage was in trouble, and described him as “a con man” who was taking advantage of him looking for some sort of “hook” or advantage.
“My feeling is that Barack Obama is definitely bi.” He has a lot of transactional qualities. “I think whatever he’s doing is looking for a hook, looking for an advantage,” Larry told Tucker.
He added that he had no idea that Barack, who married Michelle in 1992, was a politician and learned his identity five years later, in 2004.
“I had no idea who he was until I was sitting in my house in Mexico in 2004 and he walked on stage at the convention,” he told Tucker.
The fraudster has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions for forgery, fraud and theft, and has served prison sentences in Arizona, Florida and Colorado.

The Obamas haven’t let the resurfaced allegations stop them from their busy summer plans.
Michelle was spotted in another stylish outfit in Mallorca a few days ago as she dined with friends in beautiful Puerto Portals.
She opted for a casual vacation look, pairing it with loose, high-waisted black shorts and a similarly colored tank top with beaded and shell embellishments and tassels.
Last week, Michele and Barack, 62, were spotted in New York at the US Open, where she took the court to introduce 79-year-old tennis legend Billie Jean King.
They were also spotted on a family vacation in July, visiting Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts with their daughters Sascha and Malia, where Barack was spotted playing golf and Michelle playing tennis.
In May, they traveled west to California to watch their youngest daughter, Sasha Obama, graduate from the University of Southern California.
They also vacationed in Barcelona, Spain in May, hiked to Montserrat Monastery with Hollywood director Steven Spielberg and also attended a Bruce Springsteen concert.

However, they suffered tragedy in July after their personal chef drowned at their $12 million Martha’s Vineyard estate.
The Obamas, who were not home at the time of the incident, paid tribute to the chef, who worked for them for 14 years and is survived by his wife and two sons.
“Tafari was a beloved part of our family,” the couple said. “When we first met him, he was a talented sous chef at the White House – creative and passionate about food and his ability to bring people together.”
“In the years that followed, we got to know him as a warm-hearted, funny and exceptionally friendly person who made all of our lives a little more beautiful.”
“So as we prepared to leave the White House, we asked Tafari to stay with us, and he graciously agreed.
“He has been a part of our lives ever since and it breaks our hearts that he is gone.”
