Milan, November 23 - A television showgirl and former 'Big Brother' reality show participant told a Milan court on Friday that she had received 10,000 euros in financial assistance from ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi. Francesca Cipriani was testifying in a trial against three people accused of procuring prostitutes for alleged sex parties at Berlusconi's villa at Arcore near Milan. ''I asked for his help because I have not been able to work in television since the scandal,'' she said. Cipriani also said she had been given a bracelet and an envelope containing 2,000 euros after one evening spent at Arcore. ''(Berlusconi) is a man who likes to give gifts,'' she told the court. The three alleged pimps are former Berlusconi TV anchor Emilio Fede, Berlusconi's former dental hygienist and ex-Lombardy regional councillor Nicole Minetti and bankrupt talent scout Lele Mora. In a related trial Berlusconi is accused of paying a young Moroccan bellydancer called Ruby for sex when she was under age and allegedly getting police to release her from custody on an unrelated theft claim to cover it up. Both Ruby and Berlusconi deny having sex.
