(Newser) – A new twist in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault saga: Anne Mansouret says she had "brutal sex" with the former IMF chief three years before he allegedly attempted to rape her daughter, Tristane Banon. L'Express reports that Mansouret described DSK as behaving "like an obscene boor," according to a translation in Slate; the Daily Mail's translation has 65-year-old Mansouret claiming that Strauss-Kahn "took me with the vulgarity of a soldier."

According to Mansouret, the encounter occurred in a Paris office of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, where DSK was a special adviser. If true, it could explain why Mansouret initially urged her daughter not to file a complaint against Strauss-Kahn in 2003. Mansouret claims DSK's second wife, Brigitte Guillemette, confirmed to Mansouret that Strauss-Kahn told her, "I slept with the mother, I lost it when I saw the daughter." Guillemette, however, now denies Mansouret's story. Click to get caught up on Banon's case against Strauss-Kahn.
