Prostitute linked to Berlusconi feels threatened
Rome: The prostitute at the centre of
Premier Silvio Berlusconi`s sex scandal has written a book,
saying she feels betrayed by him and has been frightened by
threats, including the ransacking of her home.
Patrizia D`Addario, whose memoir went on sale today in
Italy, claims she has suffered "strange" threats since she
revealed earlier this year that she had taped-recorded her
purported bedroom encounter with Berlusconi.
In "Gradisca, Presidente," (At Your Pleasure,
Premier), D`Addario elaborates on her earlier accounts of the
night she spent with Berlusconi in his Rome residence. The
conservative leader has said he has never paid for sex and is
the victim of someone seeking to create a scandal.
D`Addario says she gave Berlusconi her body hoping he
would help her open a countryside inn in southern Italy, where
she was raised, but claims she got "nothing" from him. In the
book she documents how her efforts to open the hotel had been
stymied over the years by Italy`s bureaucracy.
The 73-year-old media mogul`s wife, Veronica Lario,
said last spring she is divorcing Berlusconi for what she
called his infatuation with attractive young women.
"(Berlusconi) didn`t pay me. It wasn`t money he had to
give me, he promised me something else," D`Addario writes in
the book. "gave him my body, he (gave me) nothing."
