Now, ‘mock wedding’ pics of Berlusconi with woman in 20s surfaceJune 13th, 2009 - 2:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 13 (ANI): Antonello Zappadu, the photographer whose controversial photos of topless young women bathing in Silvio Berlusconi’s Sardinian villa appeared in a Spanish newspaper, has hinted that there are more pictures to come.
In his first interview with a British newspaper, Zappadu has revealed that the unseen pictures show guests at Berlusconi’s private paradise of Villa Certosa, and some snaps include a “mock marriage” between the Italian Prime Minister and a woman in her twenties.
Although Zappadu refused to give out many details, he did say that among the photographs were images of Berlusconi participating in a “fake wedding” with a young woman.
He said: “It seemed to be a puerile game. He was the only man. There were around six girls, and there seemed to be some sort of marriage with one of them. I would guess she was aged around 25-30.”
Zappadu, 54, says he does not have any of the images in his possession and they have not yet been sold.
“There are more. This is not finished for me or Mr Berlusconi,” he told The Times.
Following the “fake marriage” allegations, Marco Ventura, a spokesman for the Prime Minister, denied yesterday that any such “wedding” had taken place.
“It is an invented circumstance. An image like that cannot exist, and if it did it would be a doctored photograph,” the rep said.
Some of Zappadu’s pictures were taken during New Year’s Eve festivities in January 2009, when the 18-year-old lingerie model and aspiring actress Noemi Letizia linked to Berlusconi was reportedly among the guests.
Berlusconi has consistently denied claims he had a sexual relationship with the Naples teenager since news broke that he had attended her 18th birthday party at the end of April.
His wife Veronica Lario announced her intention to divorce Berlusconi after photos of her husband were published at Letizia’s birthday party. (ANI)
