Paris: Shamed former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and his wife Anne Sinclair have separated, according a report.

The reports emerge as Strauss-Kahn is facing a probe into his alleged involvement with a prostitution ring in France and legal battles over a New York sex assault case.

Weekly magazine Closer reported that Sinclair threw Strauss-Kahn out of their home in central Paris, and the two are living separately.

A source close to Strauss-Kahn confirmed the report of the separation, saying it happened approximately a month ago, the New York Post reports.

The pair have been married for 20 years and Sinclair, a popular TV journalist for years, supported Strauss-Kahn when he was accused in May 2011 of trying to rape a New York hotel maid.

Closer’s report that the couple are now leading separate lives comes after weeks of media speculation that the relationship was under pressure, in part as Strauss-Kahn grew depressed at his lack of career options.
