George Clooney’s girlfriend is embroiled in a scandal after a former pal alleged to have seen her taking drugs at a nightclub in Italy.

French model Karima Menad told the court she snorted cocaine with Elisabetta Canalis in 2007 at Milan hotspot The Club, which was shut down earlier this week following a drugs and prostitution bust. Menad worked at The Club in 2007 and 2008.

According to court documents obtained by Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper, Menad testified in 2008, “I remember taking cocaine with Elisabetta Canalis and two others.”

Five people were arrested and The Club and nearby venue Hollywood were both shut down on Monday.

The nightclubs’ owners are reportedly under investigation over allegations they provided models for wealthy customers to have sex with off the premises.

Canalis, 31, has been dating the Ocean’s Eleven star since last year.
