Berlusconi's Wife Files For Divorce

Shortly after publicly blasting her husband for spending time with younger women, Veronica Lario has filed for divorce from Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. "I cannot stay with a man who frequents minors," she says.

The couple have been married for 19 years, but Berlusconi's tendency to flirt with younger women has finally convinced Lario to leave: "I was forced to take this step," Lario says. Berlusconi has already issued a response: "It's a personal issue that pains me, that is in the private sphere, and which seems necessary not to speak about." Good luck with that, Silvio.
