IN ANOTHER footnote to the Monica Lewinsky affair, it was confirmed yesterday that Paula Jones and her husband, Steve, have separated. Ms Jones, who brought the sexual harassment lawsuit against President Bill Clinton that ultimately triggered his impeachment by exposing his dalliance with Ms Lewinsky, has moved from the California home she shared with her husband, to a house she bought recently near her mother's home in Arkansas.

Ms Jones, 33, was spotted in the crowd when Mr Clinton visited the tornado- stricken town of Beebe in Arkansas six weeks ago.

Ms Jones said she and her husband had been considering a trial separation for some time and denied there were arguments about money. She received an out-of-court settlement of $850,000 from Mr Clinton, but $650,000 went to her lawyers. She will have custody of the their two children.
