Max Clifford’s sexual abuse almost drove girl he met in Spain to suicide

CELEBRITY publicist Max Clifford allegedly sexually abused a teenager he met in Torremolinos while she was on holiday with her parents in 1977.

Clifford, known in the region for hosting the annual ‘Max Clifford Celebrity Golf Challenge’ in Marbella, denies 11 counts of indecent assault between 1966 and 1984 in the UK.

The alleged victim, who was 15 at the time, told Southwark Crown Court that Clifford had promised to find her modelling work back in the UK.

But she was actually subjected to several months of sexual abuse, with Clifford, now 70, telling her he had to ‘really get to know you, what makes you tick’.

She told the court how she considered suicide after Clifford told her a photographer had snapped her performing oral sex upon him.

The allegations made against Clifford, from Surrey in England, relate to seven alleged victims aged between 14 and 19.

Clifford invited her to his office where he encouraged her to talk ‘dirty’ and then insisted she took her top and bra off. He then said she would not be able to do topless modelling.

The woman explained how she could not tell her parents about the abuse out of fear they would disown her, as the media mogul would often stand and talk to them before taking her out in his car and abusing her.

Some of the alleged abuse relates to Clifford’s abnormally small penis, and the way he would ask girls, ‘do you like my tiny penis?’

Clifford denies all the charges. The trial continues.
