Berlusconi admits his marriage is over

May 6th, 2009 - 5:24 pm ICT by ANI  

London, May 06 (ANI): Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has said that he is upset because his ‘finished or about to finish’ marriage is being made public.

Berlusconi’s estranged wife Veronica Lario, 52, has confirmed that she is ending her 19-year marriage because she’s tired of his womanising ways.

“It displeases me that a matter that is finished or about to finish is made so public by the newspapers when it should remain a private affair,” the Telegraph quoted Berlusconi as saying in an interview with Rai Uno.

“Frankly, I was not expecting this storm,” he added.

Meanwhile, Berlusconi has come under fire from the Catholic Church over his ‘weakness for young, flowing actresses’.

An editorial in Catholic daily Avvenire, the official newspaper of the Italian Catholic Bishops Conference, described his behaviour as ‘worrying’.

The church’s editorial said Italy deserved a leader who was a ‘mirror of the country’s soul’ and urged him to be more ’sober and sombre’. (ANI)
