(ANSAmed) - Milan, December 28 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi has reached a settlement with his ex-wife Veronica Lario, Corriere della Sera newspaper reported Friday.


    The media magnate and centre-right politician will give Lario three million euros a month or 36 million a year but will keep sole possession of his luxury villa outside Milan and his vast business empire will be unaffected, the daily said.


    The "non-consensual" sentence, ending a three-year legal tussle, was handed down on Christmas Day "in great secret", Corriere said.


    Lario filed for divorce in May 2009 claiming her husband was frequenting minors. (ANSAmed).
