Philandering Frenchman Dominique Strauss-Kahn in is more hot water for his sexual escapades — he allegedly has a 5-year-old love child born while he still had ambitions to become president of France and was head of the International Monetary Fund.
The bombshell was revealed in a Paris courtroom when the child’s unnamed 45-year-old mother requested about $8,672 a month in support payments from DSK, after allegedly trying unsuccessfully to get him to pay up for a year and a half.
DSK was not in court for the hearing, but the French edition of Closer magazine reported the woman claimed DNA tests have already established that Strauss-Kahn is the father of her boy.
DSK, 66, already has four grown kids from three marriages, ranging in age from 20 to 42. The report said he had allegedly avoided the DNA tests, but gave in after a year and a half of legal arguments.
The child in question was born while the disgraced pol was still married to Anne Sinclair, who put up $1 million in bail and paid her hubby’s legal fees when he was accused in 2011 of raping a maid at New York’s Sofitel. Criminal charges were dropped, and DSK reached a confidential settlement in a civil case.
But in 2012, he was hit with an investigation in France into his involvement in a prostitution ring and charges of “aggravated pimping,” with 13 other men.
His marriage to Sinclair crumbled and she revealed last year, “When I married Dominique, I knew he was a charmer, a seducer . . . There were naturally rumors . . . I often asked myself whether things were as they seemed.”
He was acquitted of the pimping charges this year, but more lurid details of his wild sex life had come out in the trial, including a former call girl who testified she attended orgies with DSK in Washington, DC, and afternoon group sex romps in Lille, France.
Strauss-Kahn has not yet publicly commented on the alleged love child.
