Berlusconi ‘agrees to divorce’ second wife
London: Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, has reportedly agreed on a divorce settlement with his second wife/actress Veronica Lario.
According to reports, Lairo will receive “considerably less” than the 3.5 million Euros a month, she had demanded as maintenance.
Instead, Berlusconi, 73, has offered her up to 300,000 euros a month.
Also, she is likely to retain Villa Belvedere, her mansion at Macherio near Milan.
Legal sources revealed that the estranged couple, had “coldly shaken hands” after nearly five hours of talks at the Milan courthouse.
Nonetheless, they added that the outcome had been “satisfactory”.
Lario blamed the leader, who has been linked to different women in the past, for the split, reports the Times.
Meanwhile, Berlusconi’s aides suggested Lairo had an affair with a bodyguard.
Lario’s staff, however, denied the allegation.
The two have been married for twenty years and have three children together.
