MURDER ON THE RIVIERA & A-LIST CELEBRITIES:
Bruce Willis has denied ever having any involvement with a former nightclub hostess, who is accused of murdering her husband for his ($12 million) fortune.
The "Die Hard" star has been summoned to court, along with fellow actor George Clooney and former tennis star Bjorn Borg, to appear at the trial of Jamila M'Barek (above).
M'Barek has been charged with the 2004 murder of British aristocrat, Anthony Ashley-Cooper, but will attempt to prove her innocence by showing she didn't need to kill him for his money, because she was already a millionaire in her own right.
She claims to have been a well-connected socialite with a string of famous lovers including Willis, Clooney and Borg, before she married Ashley-Cooper in 2002.
M'Barek's lawyer Franck de Vita says, "She had intimate relations with Clooney and Willis, both men deny the allegations.
Jamila was quite used to mixing with wealthy men. "There were other celebrities, but they were married and have done everything they can to keep their relationships a secret." But Willis' publicist has refuted the claims, telling British newspaper The Mail On Sunday, "I don't know of her.
I've never heard that name before." None of the stars are expected to show in the French court when the trial continues next week, and the court has no powers to force them to appear on the stand.
A verdict on M'Barek's case is expected by the end of the week.
Update: Earl’s widow (Jamila M'Bark) and her brother got 25 years in jail for murder.
It was determined that the alcoholic playboy who loved a series of escort girls was killed for his fortune. Jamila M’Barek, 45, (former escort) married Lord Shaftesbury after they were introduced by an agency, was found guilty of paying her brother, Mohammed, to strangle her husband in Cannes in November 2004.
