George Clooney's girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis upset she's in sex scandal




George Clooney's girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis is apparently a little upset by allegations that she was connected to cocaine and prostitution ring, E! reports. Doesn't the Italian TV personality know this is what makes people famous in this society?

"I have heard that Elisabetta is distraught but that George is standing by her," Milan socialite Francesca Biagini told E!. "In Milan, everyone is talking about this. It's a huge scandal and we think more celebrities will be named."

The 31-year-old Canalis was implicated in a police investigation into two Milan nightclubs, with model-turned-escort Karima Menad telling Italian prosecutors that she and Elisabetta took cocaine together while Menad was employed to ply customers with alcohol and take them off premises for sex for money.

"Elisabetta was a regular at Hollywood in Milan for several years," Biagini said, pointing out she never saw her do anything illegal. "She's friends with a lot of the models who live in the city. ... I never saw her doing cocaine, but she's always the life and soul of the party. She's a fun girl." But just how much fun remains up in the air.
