NEW YORK: The hotel maid who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault has filed a libel lawsuit against the New York Post and five of its reporters over the daily’s recent articles calling her a “hooker”.

“All of these statements are false, have subjected the plaintiff to humiliation, scorn and ridicule throughout the world by falsely portraying her as a prostitute or as a woman who trades her body for money and they constitute defamation and libel per se,” the suit said.

The suit also said that The Post ran the stories “in a desperate attempt to bolster” its sales.

The Post reported, last week, that the 32-year-old maid was doing double duty as a prostitute, collecting cash on the side from male guests.

“There is information of her getting extraordinary tips, if you know what I mean. And it’s not for bringing extra f–king towels,” a source was cited as saying.

NYP followed up with another story that said the maid was continuing with prostitution activity in the hotel where she was being kept by the District Attorney’s office during the investigation.

A third story said that Strauss-Kahn had refused to pay the maid.

Following the suit, The Post said it stands by its reporting.-PTI
