A 20-year-old model and former beauty queen has claimed that she has been Silvio Berlusconi’s secret lover since she was 18 years old.
The Italian Prime Minister, 75, met former Miss Montenegro Katarina Knezevic two years ago just after his long suffering wife Veronica Lario announced she was leaving him - ironically after it emerged he had attended the 18th birthday party of a lingerie model Noemi Letizia.
Knezevic revealed details about their secret relationship in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
“I am Berlusconi’s girlfriend and I live at Arcore (his villa near Milan). We have been together since the Noemi episode when he separated from his wife,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the paper.
“But I have never blackmailed him – that’s what others have done, they used him and betrayed him," she said
“We met two years ago in 2009. It was the beginning of May and I was 18 years old. Silvio had just separated from his wife. We met in Milan at an opening ceremony. Wherever he goes I go, I follow him everywhere,” added Katrarina, who is from Murtovina near Podgorica.
