Paris: Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Ex IMF chief, and his wife Anne Sinclair have separated, as his legal battles run on over a New York sex assault case and his alleged involvement with a prostitution ring, according to weekly magazine Closer.
Sinclair, a wealthy heiress who recently relaunched her media career as a news editor at the Huffington Post’s French edition, threw Strauss-Kahn out of their home in central Paris a month ago and the two are living separately, the magazine said.
The magazine did not cite any sources for the story that appeared in its online edition, Reuters reported.
A source close to Strauss-Kahn confirmed the report of the separation, saying it had happened approximately a month ago and that Strauss-Kahn was living at a separate residence in Paris.
The pair have been married for 20 years and Sinclair, a popular TV journalist for years who fell for the former finance minister after interviewing him, stuck close by him when he was accused in May 2011 of trying to rape a New York hotel maid.
