28-year-old girlfriend of ex-Italy PM Berlusconi, 76, says she wants to marry him
ROME (Reuters) - Silvio Berlusconi's 28-year-old girlfriend Francesca Pascale wants to marry the four-time Italian prime minister, who she says first caught her eye when she was a teenager, according to a magazine interview published on Tuesday.
Berlusconi, who turns 77 on Sunday, is divorcing his second wife Veronica Lario, whom he married in 1990. The couple had three children together.
Ms Lario filed for divorce in 2009, accusing Berlusconi of having an affair with a 17-year-old girl, which he denied. He is disputing a settlement with hero that would cost him about 100,000 euros (S$125,000) per day if confirmed by a court.
"I was a minor when I set my sights on him," Ms Pascale said, according to an excerpt of the interview published on Vanity Fair's Web site. The full interview will be released on Wednesday in the magazine which features the couple on its cover.
