KIEV, Ukraine —

The son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been hospitalized with food poisoning in the Black Sea city of Odessa, French and Ukrainian officials said Wednesday.

Pierre Sarkozy, a rap producer in his twenties, has been taken to a hospital after feeling ill, French Embassy spokesman Emmanuel Berard told The Associated Press.

Anna Osipchuk, a spokeswoman for the city administration, said Sarkozy had food poisoning apparently contracted outside Ukraine, and was to be flown home to France Wednesday.

Sarkozy, also known as DJ Mosay, was in Odessa to perform at an elite club called Tchaikovsky on Tuesday, but the show was canceled after he fell ill, the club said.

Sarkozy is the French president's oldest son by his first wife, Marie-Dominique Culioli.
