London, June 24 (ANI): Silvio Berlusconi has hit back at claims that he partied with escort girls, insisting he has never paid for sex.

The Italian Prime Minister, 72, said the claims were part of a plot to topple him.

Last week, a model had claimed that hookers were paid to attend the leader’s parties and got 850 pounds to sleep with him, reports The Sun.

Following the revelations, Berlusconi insisted he “had nothing to apologize for”.

He told Italian mag Chi: “I have never paid for a woman. I’ve never understood what satisfaction one gets if there is no pleasure of conquest.”

And he said of Patrizia D’Addario, 42 - a prostitute he is said to have used: “Behind her is someone out to get me. She has been well paid.”

His wife Veronica Lario is divorcing him over his friendship with an 18-year-old aspiring model. (ANI)
