London: The wife of Britain`s ex-leader
Gordon Brown says she spotted Italian Premier Silvio
Berlusconi asking for model Naomi Campbell`s phone number at
an official dinner.

Sarah Brown said in an interview with the Daily Mail
published today that she later joked about the episode with
"Harry Potter" author J K Rowling. She did not specify exactly
when it took place or whether Berlusconi approached Campbell
directly.

Campbell attended an official banquet with Brown,
Berlusconi and other world leaders during the 2009 G-20 summit
in London.

Berlusconi has long been known to have an eye for
beautiful women. The 74-year-old was recently indicted on
charges he paid for sex with an underage girl, and then abused
his influence to cover it up.
