George Clooney named as witness in sex trial

George Clooney and his ex-girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, are listed as witnesses for the defense in the trial of ex-Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, 75, who is alleged to have paid to have sex with an underage prostitute during a party last year at his private residence. Berlusconi’s lawyer, Niccolo Ghedini, told reporters Clooney is on the defense list because a prosecution witness named him. Clooney, who owns a home in Italy, says he met Berlusconi briefly at the prime minister’s residence, but it was to talk to him about Darfur. He says he was then invited to a “Bunga Bunga” (sex party), but declined and left. Clooney told Time: “I spoke to their people and said, ‘I will come and testify if you’d like,’ because I wasn’t at the party that I was said to have been at. I wasn’t at his ‘bunga bunga’ party.”

    Sounds like he’s testifying that he wasn’t at the party; another witness says he was. Basically will discredit that witness…
