Silvio Berlusconi has already weathered rumors of one affair with an underage mistress—now another teen claims he paid her for sex. The Moroccan model, now 18, says she attended several of the Italian prime minister's parties at his villa (and we know how those usually turn out) starting last year; she was supposedly one of many aspiring models and actresses introduced to Berlusconi by an agent. After she slept with him—consensually—he allegedly gave her a cash "gift," the Telegraph reports.

Prosecutors have opened a dossier on the matter, but some warn that the girl's story is contradictory and she may be trying to blackmail Berlusconi or simply promote herself. "This is the same old stuff—as we get closer to elections, out come the various D'Addarios bragging about their encounters with the prime minister," says one MP, referring to Patrizia D'Addario, the call girl who claimed an affair with Berlusconi last year.
