Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is facing a probe into his alleged involvement with a prostitution ring in France, and his wife have separated, a source said.
Anne Sinclair, a wealthy heiress who recently relaunched her media career as a news editor at the Huffington Post’s French
edition, and Strauss-Kahn separated about a month ago and they are living in separate residences in Paris, said the source who is close to Strauss-Kahn.
The weekly magazine, Closer, earlier reported in its online edition that Sinclair threw Strauss-Kahn out of their home in central Paris. Strauss-Kahn is under investigation in France to establish whether he knew he was dealing with prostitutes and pimps when he attended sex
parties in northern France, Paris
and Washington in 2010 and 2011 allegedly organized by business acquaintances.
Public prosecutors last month widened the inquiry to include a possible gang rape charge after a prostitute told them Strauss-Kahn and friends had forced her to have sex
in a group when she came to Washington to meet him in December 2010. The woman has not filed a formal complaint.
