Anne Sinclair confirms separation from Dominique Strauss-Kahn
Anne Sinclair, wife of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has indirectly confirmed that they have separated, after he was embroiled in a sex scandal.
After Anne Sinclair was asked how her personal life was going “since your separation”, she told Le Parisien that she is “in good form”.
There were reports that the high-profile couple had split last month but neither party confirmed the rumors.
Anne Sinclair, a journalist, stood by her husband though a series of scandals.
In June the couple, both 63, threatened to sue Closer magazine over allegations that they had separated.
DSK was forced to resign from the International Monetary Fund earlier this year after he was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a New York hotel maid.
The charges were eventually dropped, but he has since faced a number of other civil and criminal actions related to sex allegations.
In March, DSK was charged along with two businessmen and a police chief with organizing a prostitution ring for orgies in France and the US, allegations which he denies.
In addition to having to resign from his job at the IMF, DSK had also been the favorite to be the socialist candidate in this year’s French election but had to pull out.
Anne Sinclair, a journalist, heiress and head of the Huffington Post’s French edition, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn were married for some 21 years.
Until recently they had lived in Washington DC, where she had covered US politics for French media.
