The Plot Thickens

DSK Ex-Wife Considers Lawsuit

Brigitte Guillemette, Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s ex-wife, is considering filing a defamation lawsuit against the mother of one of Strauss-Kahn's accusers. Journalist Tristane Banon alleges that Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her, and earlier this week her mother, Anne Mansouret, said she herself had sex with Strauss-Kahn in 2000. But Guillemette, who is also Banon’s godmother, does not believe these stories. In an interview with Le Nouvel Observateur, she said, “None of what that woman says is true: I am not one of her close friends, my daughter Camille was never a friend of Tristane Banon’s.”
