Strauss-Kahn, wife suing mag for separation report

PARIS (AP) -

Lawyers for former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn say they're filing a lawsuit against the French magazine Closer for claiming that Strauss-Kahn and his wife have separated.

Anne Sinclair, Strauss-Kahn's wife of two decades and once a diva of French journalism, was stoic last year as he faced allegations by a New York hotel maid of sexual assault. The charges were dropped but he faces a civil lawsuit in that case and is being investigated in France for suspected links to an alleged prostitution ring.

Closer said Sinclair had asked Strauss-Kahn to leave a month ago. It cited no sources.

A statement Friday by Henri Leclerc and two other attorneys said the couple "decided to file suit against this publication for invasion of privacy." It made no mention of a separation.
