NEW YORK: Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro has slept with 35,000 women in his 82 year of life, according to an upcoming documentary.
"He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades - one for lunch and one for supper," The New York Post quoted an ex-Castro official named "Ramon" as telling filmmaker Ian Halperin. "Sometimes he even ordered one for breakfast," the official said.
"I don't think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as president," the official added.
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz or Fidel Castro led his country from December 1959 until his resignation in February this year. Castro came to power as a result of the Cuban revolution that overthrew the dictator Fulgencio Batista, and shortly thereafter became Prime Minister of Cuba.
Although the US has tried hard to get rid of him, Castro outlasted no fewer than nine American presidents since he took power.
