American student Amanda Knox, cleared last week of the 2007 murder of her roommate, British exchange student Meredith Kercher, was something of a lesbian magnet during her incarceration in Perugia, Italy, according to a report by the Daily Star.

During the four years she spent in prison in Perugia, Knox was reportedly approached by several women who developed a special liking for her, a friend of Knox was quoted as saying in the report.

Someone came on to her and took a liking to Amanda, the friend, unnamed on request, said. Amanda isn't interested in that. She is not into girls.

Knox, 24, who is back in Seattle, Wash. doesn't like to be reminded of anything Italian. She has reportedly developed a dislike for pasta, which was regular on the prison menu.

She is sick of pasta, put it that way. There was a lot of it in prison, her friend was quoted in the Daily Star.

Earlier, Knox alleged that she was sexually harassed by a high-ranking male prison administrator, who ordered her into his cabin at night to discuss sex.

We learn about sexual harassment inside prison where an administrator would take her up to his office alone at night and say a number of inappropriate things to her, and that left Amanda terrified, a CBS correspondent who interviewed Knox reported on The Early Show.

The official was stuck on the topic of sex, with whom I'd done it, how I liked it, if I would like to do it with him, said Knox, in a letter about sexual harassment in prison.

But when I realized that the official is obsessed with me to talk about sex I tried changing the topic several times, Knox added, I realize that he was just testing me to see my reaction and to understand me personally. He wanted to get some information from me regarding the case, but I did not get the seriousness of the situation.
