Another Underage Girl in Berlusconi Sex Scandal
Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, already embroiled in a sordid sex scandal involving wild orgies at his palatial Milano palazzo and sex with an underage Moroccan belly dancer, is now facing allegations that he had sex with another underage girl.
Iris Berardi, a Brazilian showgirl and former beauty queen who Italian prosecutors describe as a “well-known prostitute,” allegedly attended one of his Milano orgies, known in Italy as “bunga bunga parties.” Berardi is also said to have been a guest of the prime minister at his summer villa in Sardinia. She was 17 at the time of the alleged sexual encounters, which took place in 2009. Paying for sex is not illegal in Italy, but paying for sex with minors is.
Berlusconi, age 74, is already under investigation for allegedly paying a 16-year-old Moroccan belly dancer named Karima El-Mahroug, known in Italy as “Ruby the Heartstealer,” to attend his “bunga bunga parties.” El-Mahroug claims the prime minister paid her €7,000 ($9,300), a diamond necklace and an Audi. The scandal, dubbed “Rubygate” by the Italian press, has eroded Italians’ faith in their leader.
