While George and Elisabetta have not made any public statements regarding the cocaine scandal, sources close to the couple tell E! News Elisabetta is "distraught."

"I have heard that Elisabetta is distraught but that George is standing by her," Francesca Biagini, a Milan socialite told E! News. "In Milan, everyone is talking about this. It's a huge scandal and we think more celebrities will be named."

"Elisabetta was a regular at Hollywood in Milan for several years," she added. "She's friends with a lot of the models who live in the city. I last saw her there at a birthday party last year for the captain of AC Milan. I never saw her doing cocaine, but she's always the life and soul of the party. She's a fun girl."

But, Biaglini is not arguing other claims made in the testimony.

"A lot of girls would come out of bathroom stalls sniffing," she said, "and they would check their noses in the mirror."

Another E! News source said the management of the clubs secretly filmed the celebrities on their trips to the bathroom.

"Perhaps the club manager was planning some sort of blackmail/extortion," the source explained. "That makes sense as he's currently under house arrest."
