Spain’s former King Juan Carlos I was injected with female hormones as his rampant sex drive was a danger to the state, the country’s most infamous police chief has claimed.
Ex-police commissioner José Manuel Villarejo – who is on trial for blackmail and corruption – claimed the disgraced former head of state was given the drugs by the Spanish secret service to “lower his libido”.
The 70-year-old alleged that Juan Carlos was injected with ”female hormones and testosterone inhibitors”.
He told a parliamentary hearing that it became a “problem for the state that he was such an ardently passionate person,,” The Times reported.
During the hearing, the former police chief said he had been tasked to recover medical reports relating to scans that Juan Carlos had while he was undergoing treatment for a benign tumour.
The revelations come after a Spanish author and military historian Amadeo Martinez Ingles wrote a book entitled ‘Juan Carlos: The King Of 5,000 Lovers’, detailing evidence of his sexual history and describing the king as a “rampant sex addict”.
It has been speculated that the former king has had intimate relations with over 5,000 women, including Danish-German philanthropist Corinna Larsen, Spanish singer Sara Montiel, Belgian governess Liliane Sartiau and Italian princess Maria Gabriela de Saboya, besides his wife, Queen Sofia.
Villarejo’s trial opened this month, in which he is accused of having covertly recorded conversations with the elite for the purposes of blackmailing or ruining their reputation on behalf of other powerful clients.
He denied having any involvement in the effort to bring Juan Carlos’ notorious sex drive under control and said he found out about it from Corinna Larsen, a former lover of the ex-monarch now living in London.
The former king reigned from 1975 to 2014, but abdicated his throne for of his son. He fled Spain for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, last year amid a multi-million dollar corruption scandal.
