(Newser) – Anne Sinclair has finally ditched scandal-ridden husband Dominique Strauss-Kahn, according to French gossip magazine Closer. She threw the former IMF chief—who has been linked to a prostitution ring and accused of taking part in a gang rape—out of their Paris home a month ago and the two are living separately, according to the magazine. The split follows reports that Strauss-Kahn had become depressed over his lack of career options.

"He's in a bad way. It's very sad," a person who knows Strauss-Kahn told Reuters earlier this month. "He's mostly just at home on his own while Anne is out and about with her new job. He's shunned by everybody." Sinclair—France's woman of the year in 2011—was one of the country's best-known TV journalists for many years and relaunched her media career earlier this year, becoming editor of the Huffington Post's French edition.
