Monetary Fund, allegedly told his wife he had sex with three women in New York in the hours leading to his arrest on attempted rape charges, a French magazine has claimed.
The former frontrunner for France's presidency was reported to have made the confession to his wife, Anne Sinclair, in an attempt to convince her that he had not raped a maid in a Manhattan hotel in May.
He is alleged to have admitted he "had" the three unnamed females between Friday night and when he checked out of the Manhattan Sofitel after midday on the Saturday.
The sex binge was described as an apparent attempt to let off steam before next year's presidential elections. "So it wasn't just one for the road," a friend of Ms Sinclair was quoted as telling 'Le Point' magazine, "it was three."
