(Newser) – Anne Sinclair stuck by Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s side throughout sex scandals in the US and France, but she might finally be at the end of her rope. The former IMF head was last month linked to a French prostitution network, and now his wife is considering divorce, the Telegraph reports, citing media reports in France. One insider confirms they "are thinking about (divorce or separation), that’s for sure." Sinclair is fed up with the "pathetic" revelations that keep coming out about DSK, friends add, and wants her husband to repay the hundreds of thousands of dollars she spent on his legal defense in NYC.

"He loses weight, gains it, then loses it again: Nothing is stable," explains a friend. As for the latest scandal, recorded phone conversations reportedly link DSK to the prostitution ring, and one prostitute told police he had paid her for sex, notes the Telegraph.
