A British tourist has accused a star of Greece’s Big Brother of raping her while she was on a girls’ holiday in the country.
The 21-year-old met reality TV star and influencer Steve Milatos, 30, late on May 23 at Bar Socrates in Lindos town, a popular nightspot in Rhodes.
She claims they took some footage before Milatos encouraged her group to move to another location nearby, where he met with them around 1am.
Her lawyer, Ioannis Kokkinogenenis, said that while they were inside, Milatos motioned the woman outside for a “talk” and then led her down a dark alley to an abandoned house, where he attacked her.
Mr Kokkinogenis told MailOnline the young woman fled the building “screaming hysterically” after the alleged attack and ran back to her friends.
He said she tried to kill herself a short time later and was “in a very bad mental state”.
The lawyer added: “They took her to her room and she went to shower because she felt dirty. She then attempted suicide by slitting her wrists.
“One of the friends came just in time and saved her.”
Mr Kokkinogenis told MailOnline the young woman, originally from London but studying English literature in the north of England, was on holiday in Rhodes from May 22-27.
She and three other buddies were celebrating the end of college exams, he said.
Milatos is scheduled to appear before a court interrogator on Friday to question him before Greek prosecutors decide whether to bring further charges.
His lawyer Stelios Alexandris has insisted his client is innocent.
He said: “None of what the lady claims happened. It is true that they met and it is true that there was consensual intercourse. And that’s it. I’m not saying that.
“We’re waiting for the forensic report that proves what my client says.”
Milatos has more than 110,000 followers on Instagram and has previously worked with major fashion houses such as Diesel.
According to Greek media, he has also walked the catwalk for Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier.
