Disgraced publicist Max Clifford boasted he had never been faithful to his wife for longer than three weeks, his biographer has revealed.
Clifford bragged of orgies with celebrities and young women where he acted as ‘ringmaster’, biographer Angela Levin told a new documentary about his life.
The journalist gave documentary-makers some 100 hours of previously unheard interviews with Clifford, which she taped in 2004 before he was arrested and later jailed for sexual abuse of women and girls as young as 15.
Disgraced publicist Max Clifford boasted he had never been faithful to his wife for longer than three weeks, his biographer said yesterday
In the tapes, Clifford said he had been serially unfaithful to his wife of 36 years Liz, who had died from lung cancer a year earlier.
He said: ‘I was having affairs, I was greedy, it was wonderful. Liz was my wife, the rest of them were for entertainment.’
Clifford went on: ‘It was my party, my circus, so I was the ringmaster. We were all of us in this toy shop and we could play with every toy.
‘There would be four or five stars and five or six girls at it and doing all kinds of things… and I controlled it.’
During the interviews, Clifford insisted that the women involved in his infidelities and the sex parties were ‘old enough to know what they were doing and thoroughly enjoyed what happened’.
But in 2012 he was arrested for a string of indecent assaults against teenage girls and was later convicted and jailed for eight attacks against four victims. The youngest was 15.
Details from his biography were used at his trial by the prosecution, and he admitted he had been unfaithful to his first wife on several occasions, but insisted his sexual activities were ‘good honest filth’, and not illegal.
Mrs Levin said she had been shocked when he was arrested and had not known he had targeted underage girls.
But she told the Channel 4 documentary, Max Clifford: The Fall of a Tabloid King, that he had wanted details of his sex life to be included in his 2005 biography.
She said he told her: ‘I want you to know that I wasn’t faithful to my wife for more than two or three weeks at a time.’
The documentary spoke to three of Clifford’s victims, who told how he had groomed them with promises of stardom and then coerced or blackmailed them into performing sex acts.
Journalists said he had also secretly photographed his friends and cronies having sex in his office, and had bragged about having a cache of compromising photographs.
Clifford, who was jailed for eight years, died from a heart attack in 2017 while serving his prison sentence.
The documentary, Max Clifford: The Fall of a Tabloid King, will be shown on Channel 4 at 9pm on Monday, March 1.
