George Clooney's Italian lady friend, Elisabetta Canalis, was linked to a nightclub scandal involving a prostitution ring and cocaine that has lead to the arrest of five people!
The two Milan clubs in question, called Hollywood and The Club, allegedly were extremely celebrity-friendly before they were busted for setting up private escorts and free cocaine for the wealthier clientele, and one of the witnesses on trial admitted to doing the drug with the former model!
The prosecutor explained:
“The VIP’s were protected, hidden…able to safely conduct themselves in any way, hidden from the court of public opinion. They were often given cocaine for free by those who want to sit at a table of famous people…they want the visibility that comes from being seated at a central table, and to be seen with models, or celebrities from fashion, entertainment and sport. They [the girls] were brought into the clubs by the various characters acting as PR for the evenings to entertain customers at the tables of the private club. Their job was to encourage these customers to drink alcohol as to increase the table’s bill, followed up by sex off premises.”
One such girl, Karima, admitted:
“I’ve done cocaine with other people including Elisabetta Canalis.”
Tisk, tisk, bb! George Clooney is one of the most well-respected and beloved celebrities today - he is NOT going to appreciate this being associated with him!
