PARIS (AP) — Dominique Strauss-Kahn says he’s sick of people trying to exploit his private life to make money.

The former International Monetary Fund chief filed a lawsuit over a new book by a woman describing a sexual relationship with him last year. Mr. Strauss-Kahn met with a Paris judge on Tuesday about the book by Marcela Iacub, called “Beauty and the Beast.”

The judge is expected to rule on the complaint later Tuesday.

After the meeting, Mr. Strauss-Kahn said he was “horrified” by the book.

“I’ve had enough of people using me. I want one thing only, to be left in peace,” he said.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn’s private life was thrown into the spotlight in 2011 when a New York hotel maid accused him of trying to rape her. Mr. Strauss-Kahn reached a legal settlement with her last year.
