Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is now under investigation for a scandal involving a Moroccan girl named Ruby Rubacuori. The 17-year-old nightclub dancer may have had sex with the Italian Prime Minister. Ruby, whose real name is Karima El Mahroug, has denied it.
According to a series of media reports last October, Berlusconi met Mahroug, then 17, through Nicole Minetti, a TV showgirl turned dental hygienist who acquired a post in Berlusconi’s Freedom People party after catching his eye while cleaning his teeth.
Mahroug insisted that she had not slept with the 74-year-old prime minister, but she told Italian newspapers that she attended “bunga bunga” sex parties at his mansion near Milan. At one of these, Mahroug said, she sat next to Berlusconi, who later took her upstairs and gave her an envelope containing €7,000. She said he also gave her jewellery.
