Silvio Berlusconi has settled a long-running divorce dispute with his estranged wife Veronica Lario.
The former Italian prime minister has reportedly agreed to pay her 100,000 euros a day as part of their settlement after three years of negotiations.
Lario, a former actor who was married to Berlusconi for more than 22 years, asked for a divorce from the 76-year-old billionaire in 2009, accusing him of having an affair with a 17-year-old girl.
At the time she said she could “no longer stay with
a man who frequents minors” after reports
emerged that Berlusconi had attended the 18th birthday party of aspiring model Noemi Letizia.
Since then he has been accompanied by a repeated allegations of sexual scandal, culminating in accounts last year of “bunga bunga” sex parties in his Milan home and charges of paying for
sex with a juvenile prostitute, which he denies.
