Max Clifford - Max Clifford Attended Diana Dors' Sex Parties
Celebrity publicist Max Clifford has admitted cheating on his wife and attending sex parties thrown by screen siren Diana Dors in sensational courtroom testimony.
The 70 year old, from Surrey, England, is on trial accused of 11 charges of indecent assault relating to seven females aged 14 to 20 between 1966 and 1984.
Clifford took the stand at Southwark Crown Court in London on Wednesday (26Mar14) and vehemently denied the charges, dismissing allegations he had a sexual interest in children as "utterly revolting, utterly untrue, disgusting lies" and when asked whether he had ever had sexual contact with a woman without her consent, he replied, "No."
He was also asked about his sex life, and Clifford admitted cheating on his first wife, Liz, with four different women, while he also confirmed he had attended saucy parties thrown by actress Dors in the 1960s.
Clifford told the court, "There would have been parties from my younger days when I was friends with Diana Dors because Diana had parties... sometimes there was sex... but they weren't orgies. Not everyone went there and took their clothes off. In most of these situations they were one-bedroom premises, there was kissing, caressing and flirtation."
The publicist also denied allegations he had impersonated Hollywood heavyweights including director Michael Winner and actor Charles Bronson on the phone as part of a scheme to lure girls into performing sex acts on him, although he admitted he sometimes used fake identities as a way of "checking people out and getting to the truth" when dealing with potential clients.
Clifford denies 11 charges of indecent assault. The trial continues.
