Washington, May 05 (ANI): Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is asking his actress wife to apologize after she went public with her plans to divorce him.

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

However, the 72-year-old Italian leader is upset with his estranged wife because she has accused him of ‘consorting with minors’ in Italian newspaper articles.

“I supposedly hang around with, as my wife said, 17-year-old girls. That is something I cannot put up with. I am the friend of the (girl’s) father and nothing more,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

“Veronica will have to publicly apologise to me. And I don’t know if that will be enough,” he added.

The divorce plans comes just a month before Berlusconi starts fighting for re-election. (ANI)
