Berlusconi slams "feminist" judges for huge divorce settlement

ROME | Tue Jan 8, 2013 5:14pm EST

(Reuters) - Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi on Tuesday slammed a panel of three "feminist and communist" female judges for ruling that he owed his estranged wife 200,000 euros ($260,000) per day as part of a divorce settlement.

On December 28, the newspaper Corriere della Sera said the divorce ruling had been deposited just before Christmas, and that Berlusconi had been ordered to pay Veronica Lario, whom he married in 1990, about 100,000 euros per day.

It was the first time Berlusconi had commented publicly on the settlement. He did not elaborate on the figure and it was not clear whether he might be including back payments that have fallen due since the separation in quoting a higher daily payment than Corriere.

"They ordered me to pay 200,000 euros a day, and this says a lot about who the Milan judges are," Berlusconi said in an interview on a talk show on the television channel La7. "They are three feminist and communist judges."

3. $260,000 per day? Like, until forever?

 

That does seem absurdly high. That's almost $95 million per year.
There must be something I'm missing... (?)

5. Berlusconi is worth almost 6 billion dollars.

I'm surprised his wife of 22 years didn't get more.

4. That's about 95 milli0n dollars a year

Of course, since he's worth about $5 billion it would take her a bit over 50 years to drain him dry, assuming he doesn't make any more money ever. And if he's exaggerating, it's even less of a bite out of him.

Don't complain about avarice, Silvio. You have nothing to stand on.
