Patrizia D'Addario
London, Jul 25: In a new twist in the Silvio Berlusconi's sex tape scandal, the Italian Prime Minister's 'call girl' Patrizia D'Addario has threatened to sue the Foreign Minister for maligning her image.

D'Addario, a Bari prostitute, is threatening to take Franco Frattini to court for impugning her reputation as opposition MPs unleashed an attack on their PM for trying to compromise nation's security, reports The Times.

The 42-year-old vice girl defended her saucy recordings of alleged encounters with Berlusconi after Frattini accused her of taking money to make false statements.

D'Addario gave rise to the prospect of a court battle between call girl and Foreign Minister over Berlusconi's damaged image the day after L'Espresso Group released fresh audio tapes purportedly recording intimate details of a sexual encounter between her and the Prime Minister.

In a media statement, D'Addario denied Frattini's claims and also media suggestions that she had given the tapes to 'selected journalists' herself.

"In the past few days slanderous public statements and journalists' interpretations have been published about me. I will respond to every single one of them through legal action," D'Addario said in the statement released by Maria Pia Vigilante, her lawyer.

The statement added, "Foreign Affairs Minister Franco Frattini said that some escorts have been been paid by journalists to 'direct false accusations against Silvio Berlusconi'.

"If he is referring to me as well, I want to strongly deny that fact and ask the Foreign Minister to prove his statements, or if he has no proof, to stop making statements."
