PARIS (AP) — The wife of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has acknowledged in a newspaper interview that the two have separated, and says she's been doing "very well" on her own.

Anne Sinclair, a famous French TV journalist and chief editor of the French Huffington Post, stood by her husband through months of public scrutiny after he was accused in New York last year of trying to rape a hotel maid.

He is also being investigated in France for suspected links to a prostitution ring. He denies wrongdoing.

The Le Parisien newspaper published an interview with Sinclair on Friday in which it asked how she's been doing since the split. Her response was: "I'm working hard again ... I'm doing very well, thank you."
