Berlusconi's 'lover' cashes in on scandal

entertainment Updated: Feb 17, 2011 17:34 IST

The teenage belly dancer who is alleged to have an affair with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has cashed in on the scandal by appearing in an Italian TV advert.

Karima El Mahroug, 18, strips to her underwear in a commercial for

The Female Labyrith

, a book by a former MEP, reports the

Daily Mail


In the advertisement, the dancer, whose stage name is Ruby the Heart Stealer, attacks the “regime” and claims Italian society has been “stripped bare” by the government.

She initially appears in a red dress but a man dressed as the Phantom of the Opera emerges and rips it off, leaving her in nothing but her black bikini, to emphasise the message of the ad.
