London, June 19 (ANI): Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi doesn’t need to pay for female company - he can get plenty of women free, his lawyer said.

Following fresh revelations about the premier dominated Italian newspapers, Niccolo Ghedini, Berlusconi’s chief legal adviser, made the comments.

Ghedini spoke after leaked wire taps from a corruption inquiry allegedly revealed businessmen arranging girls at 2,000 a time for parties at the 73-year-old PM’s luxury villas, reports The Scotsman.

He said: “To think that Berlusconi needs to pay a girl 2,000 so they will sleep with him, seems to me to be a little too much. I think that he could have an enormous amount (of women] for free. Mr Berlusconi has great respect for women and would not dream of paying one to have sex with him.”

Corriere Della Sera, an Italian newspaper, had published an interview with Patrizia D’Addario who says she was paid to attend one of Berlusconi’s parties.

The paper reported yesterday that D’Addario, 42, was a divorced high-class escort girl with an 11-year-old daughter.

In the interview D’Addario said she only took half of the 2000 euros offered to stay at Berlusconi’s residence as she did not stay the night.

Berlusconi’s wife Veronica Lario, 52 is divorcing him and said she was ‘fed up of him associating with minors’. (ANI)
