(Newser) – Things keep getting messier for Silvio Berlusconi: Now prosecutors claim there’s a second underage girl mixed up in his series of sex scandals. Brazilian showgirl Iris Berardi was just 17 when she visited the Italian prime minister at his summer villa and his palazzo, prosecutors hold. Meanwhile, another woman in the scandal—currently under investigation for finding prostitutes for the PM—has been taped calling him “a piece of ----,” the Telegraph reports.

In the recording, Nicole Minetti, whom Berlusconi helped into politics, calls him an “old man” who destroyed her life and “is trying to save his own flabby ----.” But in another intercepted call, she tells a former Playboy model that “if he goes down, we all go down.” Prosecutors last week handed parliament a 227-page dossier containing the allegations and descriptions of Berlusconi’s so-called “bunga bunga” parties, at which he reportedly “touched the intimate parts” of showgirls.
