New York: Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was freed from house arrest recently, slept with three women in the course of a few hours over the weekend of the alleged assault on a maid at a Manhattan hotel, a media report has claimed.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, has been accused of forcing a Guinean maid, 32, to perform oral sex. He was taken into custody a few minutes before his Air France flight departed for Paris in May.

Le Point magazine reported that the former chief of the International Monetary Fund told his wife Ann Sinclair that he slept with three women as a last romp before the presidential election in France.

"It wasn't just one for the road before the presidential campaign," a friend of Ann Sinclair said. "It was three."

Strauss-Kahn's wife, who is with him in New York, continues to defend her husband. "Dominique has never been violent with anyone," she told friends, as quoted by The Sunday Times. "Even the children, he never smacked them. He's a seducer, not a rapist."

Sinclair, 64, told friends that her husband had warned her of his "skirt chasing" ways ahead of marriage. "Don't marry me. I'm an incorrigible skirt chaser."

After he had cheated on her, he would tell her, "I warned you".

The New York Post had previously reported that Strauss-Kahn had tried to hit on a hotel receptionist but was rebuffed.

Hours before the alleged assault, a woman from the banking world was reportedly seen entering the Sofitel Hotel with him and then going up to his floor.

The court date for the next hearing of the sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn was postponed from July 18 till August 1.

The case against Strauss-Kahn has been weakened considerably after it emerged that maid has been lying to investigators.

Strauss-Kahn's lawyers have asked for dismissal of the charges against him. They say that the sexual encounter between their client and the maid was consensual.

But legal experts say that the maid's lies doe not automatically lead to a dismissal. Kenneth, Thompson, the maid's lawyer, has also asked prosecutors not to drop the case against Strauss-Kahn.

Strauss-Kahn currently lives in a posh pad in New York that costs USD 50,000 a month.
