Nafissatou Diallo breaks her silence in an exclusive interview.

Nafissatou Diallo claimed one of the world's most powerful men tried to rape her— and then found herself accused. In an exclusive interview in this week's Newsweek, Diallo tells vivid, gripping details of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's alleged attack, and rejects accusations of being a sex worker.

Some of the men she has been with, whom she does not call fiancés or boyfriends, but "just friends," seem to have taken advantage of her. "One, now in a federal detention center in Arizona awaiting deportation after a drug conviction," reports Newsweek, "won her confidence—and, she says, access to her bank accounts—by giving her fake designer bags: 'Six or seven of them,' she says."
