Bloodyvostock, Russia - Russian mobster Roman Abramovich's girlfriend Dasha Zhukova is embroiled in a furious row with 'Burro'** celeb watch magazine about posing for a pic on a 'racist' chair.
The 32 year-old Muscovite was papped sitting on a black female mannequin's bottom that's lying on its back with legs in the air resembling a chair shape, naked save for black leather boots, elbow length gloves, panties and a restraining belt.
Zhukova herself has plenty of clothes on and is smiling sweetly like the class act she is.
This morning her oligarch boyfriend's PR issued a statement deploring suggestions the life-size mannequin had been modelled on Oprah Winfrey or Michelle Obama, or that the picture was intended as an 'in yer face' gesture.
"Eez not true," Dim Eatery Pissov, head of client relations commented, "besides, as anyone can see, model in question looks like transvestite, or man in drag.
"Facially, reminds me of retired American basketball legend Dennis Rodman during highly successful modelling career."
Russian President Vladimir Putin is 69 until at least September.
