Following recent claims that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was among the clientele of a French prostitution ring under criminal investigation, it appears that DSK’s wife, Anne Sinclair, has finally heard enough.

After 20 years of marriage and, more recently, footing the legal bill for the high-profile sexual assault charges against him, the former television journalist is reportedly considering a divorce. The Telegraph reports:

Le Figaro quoted unnamed “friends” as saying she was fed up with the torrent of “pathetic” disclosures about one-time French presidential favourite, and that she was demanding that he pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars that she spent on his defence in New York.
