Berlusconi’s Ex to Get $48M a Year

Even with a multimillion-dollar payoff, being married to Silvio Berlusconi might not have been worth it. The former Italian prime minister has agreed to pay his ex-wife Veronica Lario $48 million a year in a divorce settlement that was filed Christmas Day, and he will keep the $100 million house they live in with their three children. According to an Italian paper, this was apparently a compromise between the $56 million Lario requested and the $5 million her 76-year-old husband initially offered. The two split when Berlusconi caused a national scandal after being spotted at the 18th-birthday party of an aspiring model back in 2009. He’s currently engaged to a 28-year-old and says he plans to run again for office in the 2013 elections after resigning last November.
