London: The sex-crime accusations surrounding Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi are mounting.
Now, a half-British woman, who is under investigation for allegedly recruiting girls for the ‘Bunga Bunga’ sex parties, has branded him ‘a piece of s**t’ who is out to save his ‘flabby a**’, reports the Daily Mail.
Nicole Minetti, who is also said to have performed a topless dance for the 74-year-old Premier, was recorded making the blistering attack to friends in a series of embarrassing wire taps.
“He is being a real piece of s**t. He has pulled me into these parties but I am a good person, at the most a few traffic violations, but not crimes...he's just saving his own flabby a**’,” Minetti said of Berlusconi in the intercepts.
The TV showgirl-turned-dental hygienist, whose mother is English, treated Berlusconi's broken teeth after he was hit in the face with a statue at a rally in December 2009.
Her comments came to light as fresh allegations emerged that a second underage girl had attended Berlusconi's infamous sex parties.
New documents filed by prosecutors investigating claims of underage sex and extortion against Berlusconi revealed that Brazilian model Iris Berardi was 17 when she attended the dinners he hosted.
Berardi, now 19, is also said to be a high-class escort and although there was no suggestion she had had sex with the media tycoon, the documents showed she had received substantial payments from him.
