"Manhattan Madam" Kristin Davis claims IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn mistreated escort, reports say
(CBS) - Kristin Davis, aka the "Manhattan Madam" - best known for having former New York governor Eliot Spitzer on her escort service's client list - is now claiming that then-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn paid thousands of dollars for her escort girls, and that one of them complained Strauss-Kahn was too aggressive, reports say.
According to Davis, the recently resigned IMF managing director used her escort service twice in 2006, while he was seeking the French presidential candidacy, reports the Telegraph.
Strauss-Kahn, who is currently held without bail in New York, accused of raping a housekeeper at a luxury hotel, reputedly called Davis in January 2006 requesting an "all American girl." Davis said he paid about $2,400 for two hours with her, The Daily Mail reports.
Davis, 35, said she decided to speak out against Strauss-Kahn because of the allegations against him. She said she doesn't feel the need to protect her clients that are abusive, reports The Daily Mail.
"The girl said he was pushy, overly grabby and forceful. He did not rape anyone. However, at $1,000 or more an hour, we expected the clients to behave like gentlemen, not animals," said Davis to The Daily Mail.
Davis was jailed in 2008 for promoting prostitution, after it emerged that Spitzer had been using call girls. She spent five months at Rikers Island, where Strauss-Kahn is currently being held.
