London, Nov 24: Saif al-Islam was a womanizer who often indulged in domestic violence, according to a Ukrainian woman who claims to be a former wife of the captured son of slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
Nadia claims to have met Saif, now 39, when she was working as a stripper at a Moscow nightclub, and says that as she prepared for marriage to him, she had to fly to Paris to have an operation to "restore" her virginity.
"The doctor proved my innocence in the presence of Saif 's aunt. Then I embraced Islam. I tried to have a normal family, but Saif wanted to live as single man with lovers and orgies," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling a Ukrainian newspaper.
"My husband tried to make me a submissive Eastern woman and I couldn't stand that attitude. Saif took drugs and he couldn't control himself when he was under narcotics.
"He had certain sexual perversions in sex, for example , he liked to do it in public. I understood that we couldn't live together.
