article imageItalian PM’s Wife to hire Divorce Lawyer

By Alethea Borgman     May 3, 2009 in World
Silvio Berlusconi's wife has told La Stampa newspaper that she is seeking a divorce from her husband and has already hired a lawyer.
Veronica Lario told the Italian newspaper:
"I have been forced to take this step, I don't want to add anything else,"
This announcement follows reports last week that claim Ms Lario’s public outrage of her husbands choice of candidates for the European Parliament elections.
According to press reports: Silvio Berlusconi was reported to have selected a number of TV showgirls to act as candidates in the up and coming European parliament elections in June.
She described the process as: "shamelessly trashy" in an email to an Italian news agency, Ansa last week.
She was also furious following further allegations that her husband had attended the birthday party of 18-year old women from Naples.
Silvio Berlusconi, 72, told reporters he was sorry his wife had apparently believed "what she read in the papers" and blamed it on a personal smear campaign against him “hyped by the leftist press.”
Ms Lario, a 52-year-old actress, married Mr Berlusconi in 1990.
The 72-year-old billionaire prime minister has not commented on the divorce reports. The couple have three children from their 19-year marriage.
