A sexual relationship described in the written words of the participants has now landed one of the lovers in the crosshairs of the legal system.

It involved one of this nation's most famous teenagers, the controversial, Islam-critical poet Yahya Hassan, and a female teacher more than twice his age.

According to BT, Louise Østergaard, a 38-year-old teacher, instructed Hassan in Danish at a school in Farsø near Aarhus and became his contact person with the council after he left the school. 

Shortly afterwards, she became his lover.

Aalborg love-nest
Østergaard is accused of having sex with Hassan while she was his contact person and he was 16 years old. 

The tryst is said to have taken place in an Aalborg apartment in 2012.

Hassan has written about the relationship in his poetry, and Østergaard has admitted to the relationship and written a book about it. 

The case will be handled as a confession in the court in Aalborg on September 10.
