The latest beneficiary in Berlusconi's cash-for-sex episode is a glamorous TV weather girl. She was apparently paid 100,000 pounds after she attended his infamous sex parties, it has emerged.
Prosecutors have discovered bank records, which have shown that he gave Alessandra Sorcinelli money, reports the Daily Mail. The payments started in 2010 and averaged 8,500 pounds a month.
According to the papers, the money was called a 'non interest-earning loan'. Berlusconi is being investigated over allegations that he paid 17-year-old belly dancer Karima El Mahroug for sex after she attended a so-called 'bunga bunga' party in his house.
Meanwhile, an opinion poll in Corriere Della Sera newspaper said the scandal had not harmed Berlusconi's People of Freedom party, with support rising from 27 per cent to 30 per cent.
