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.
