Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been spotted with his new girlfriend, Myriam Aouffir, at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
Myriam Aouffir, 43, is a high-profile press officer for French television.
She has already been seen with DSK on the Mediterranean island of Corsica but now the couple have been pictured lapping up the sun in the holy city.
In May 2011, DSK, 64, was arrested for assaulting a maid at the Sofitel, a midtown Manhattan hotel. Charges were later dropped but it led to revelations about the former IMF chief’s sex life, in which he admitted attending swingers’ parties.
Anne Sinclair, Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s former partner, confirmed she has split from her scandal-hit husband at the end of last month.
Anne Sinclair, 64, originally stuck by DSK after he was embroiled in a catalogue of scandals last year.
But the multi-millionaire heiress finally kicked her husband out of their Paris apartment in June, before immersing herself in a new job running an internet site in the French capital.
The new relationship between Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Myriam Aouffir has been high profile even though they have been together less than a year.
Like DSK, Myriam Aouffir comes from a Moroccan background, and is also believed to be estranged from her husband, with whom she has two children.
Myriam Aouffir, who studied at Montpellier University, has been seeing Dominique Strauss-Kahn for a number of months, according to close friends of the couple.
