But now Tristane Banon, the 31-year-old god-daughter of Strauss-Kahns second wife Brigitte Guillemette, said he attacked her almost a decade ago.
Ms Banon will now tell French detectives about the alleged attempted rape, which took place in an anonymous studio flat in Paris in 2002.
Strauss-Kahn lured the then 21-year-old trainee journalist to the property under the promise of an interview, and then started to rip her clothes off, it is claimed.
I kicked him, I called him a rapist, he didnt seem to care, said Ms Banon in earlier interviews, in which she also described Strauss-Kahn as acting like a rutting chimpanzee.
Ms Banons mother, Anne Mansouret, said the only reason she did not press charges at the time was because 'she was just starting out in journalism' and was afraid of being 'defined by the story' of being attacked by a senior politician.
Mrs Mansouret has now confirmed that her daughter is making a report to Paris police, and may hold a press conference about an ordeal which left her 'traumatised'

Luxe hotels handle $3000 a night guests with kid gloves. There's a protocol----the help does not freely enter rooms at will. Apparently maids are not allowed to enter rooms until they are specifically told the guest has departed.
The hotel first sends in a bellman to cart off dishes, empty bottles, and the like BEFORE the maids go in to clean.
The victim had been told by the bellman that the guest had left....and got the OK to enter the room. But when she walked in, DSK was apparently hiding in the bathroom and ran out to attack her when he heard her come in.
From what we now know, it looks like HE set her up for rape.
They hustled him off to Rikers despite a high paid lawyer's plea........b/c he's done this before and had been warned. As was posted earlier----everyone in Paris knew for years he had something of a problem. Not many female journalists were prepared to interview him alone.......and other hotel maids are said to be talking.
Interesting that he bolted the hotel to escape and left his belongings behind------but really, really wanted the cell phone. Makes you wonder what was on there that he was desperate to hide?
Dont watch the naughty female school teacher cases?
Cause there have been a ton of cases of naughty school teachers having their way with their 12 year old charges.
I'd be willing to bet that men abusing little girls is a much bigger problem than "naughty teachers", if by that you mean female teachers and I believe from the context that you do.
Check your local sex offender registry if you don't believe it. In my own county there are 316 cases listed, exactly 4 of them are women.
