(Newser) – You may want to wait until after breakfast to read on: A chef who once cooked for Moammar Gadhafi shared some pretty sordid tales about the late dictator in yesterday’s Sunday Times, the Daily Mail reports. The chef, Faisal, recalls that while he was cooking dinner for Prince Andrew before Gadhafi met with him for trade talks in 2008, the Libyan leader slept with at least four women. "There were four or sometimes five women each day. They had just become a habit to Gadhafi," says Faisal.

Faisal, who also acted as Gadhafi’s manservant for seven years, was captured by anti-Gadhafi forces and was on leave from prison due to the Muslim holiday of Eid when he told his tales. Faisal revealed that many of Gadhafi’s partners were his bodyguards, and that he showered some of them with property and cash. Some, however, suffered internal injuries after sex and "went immediately from his bedroom to the hospital." Gadhafi was addicted to Viagra, Faisal says, adding that his Ukrainian nurse begged him to cut back; he was also very vain—and reportedly once sent an aide to Paris to purchase a penis-lengthening machine.
