A woman claiming to be Strauss-Kahn’s ex-lover is now sharing details. Christopher Dickey on scary similarities with DSK's rape charges—and a breakup that prompted her suicide attempt.
What makes Dominique Strauss-Kahn so sexy?
Many American women may think that question is oxymoronic. And some would take off the oxy. But the French politician known for weeks on the front pages of New York tabloids as “Le Perv,” after a chambermaid in a Manhattan hotel accused him of trying to rape her and forcing her to perform oral sex, has a reputation in France as a “great seducer.”
Now, for the first time, we have a woman on the record (or almost) testifying to his animal magnetism. That she also has a West African background, like alleged victim Nafissatou Diallo, only makes her testimony more piquant. Her account also offers some interesting insights into the political ambitions as well as the sexual predilections of this former director of the International Monetary Fund, who was touted as the leading contender to be the next president of France.
The woman extensively photographed but identified only as Marie-Victorine M. in the current issue of the Swiss magazine L’illustré, was a 23-year-old law student when she met the 47-year-old Strauss-Kahn in 1997. He was married then, and still is, to heiress and television interviewer Anne Sinclair. DSK, as he was called even then, was the Socialist mayor of Sarcelles, a town north of Paris with large immigrant communities, and M’s Congolese-born father was active in the Socialist Party.
M told the Swiss magazine that such was the power of attraction she and Strauss-Kahn felt for each other that he stopped for a few moments in the middle of a speech he was giving when he first saw her. A few hours later, they were in bed together. The affair, says M, went on for several months, but grew more difficult when DSK became France’s minister of finance. It ended in October 1997, “just after Yom Kippur,” she said. Four months later, according to pages from a letter M wrote to her father, she was so distraught that she attempted suicide.
