It might seem like an exorbitant amount, but it's pocket change for him, as someone said. And he deserves it. That corrupt son of a bitch deserves that and more.
To all the one defending him just because his ex-wife seems like a greedy gold-digger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controv...vio_Berlusconi
"Three years after Silvio Berlusconi's wife walked out on him over his alleged frolicking with teenage girls, the former Italian prime minister has reportedly been ordered to pay her €3m a month in a divorce settlement.
The climax of the long-simmering divorce battle – reported by Italy's Corriere della Sera – follows Berlusconi's offer of just €300,000 a month to the former actress Veronica Lario, whom he married in 1990 after divorcing his first wife.
Although Lario had demanded €43m a year, higher than the €36m awarded, the judge's ruling is heavily in her favour."
But to come back on the topic the fact still remains that him being faithful never happend. He joggled a lot of womens during his marriage so I guess that accounted in court settlement also on top of his high wealth. But still the marriage was a bit strange and 100% doomed from start.
But like I said before if he wasn't married he would give the money not to his wife but to his kids, that are in the care of the mother. So it's would be a bit strict to where the money goes, but im sure either way the settlement would still be high since of his high wealth.
better check the IDcard before having sex with a prostitute, she (or he) might be underaged
for one cause or another, he definitely deserve this (and much, much more)

Voted no by accident. Seriously, there should be a limited on how much people are ordered to pay, especially when they get it just because they divorced someone. Why do they need so much compared to a 'normal' person who gets divorced and only has to pay enough for child support?
i feel sorry for mr. berlusconi. he was my favourite prime minister. i hope doesnt pay a single spit to this money grabber.
I think even the $5 million he offered was way too much. Im sick and tired of these ridiculous alimony payments. If you get a divorce, at best alimony should cover a basic apartment and basic necessities to live such as food and clothing from places normal people shop. This BS happens all the time with celebrities. If you want to live the luxurious lifestyle you did before and buy all your clothes at designer stores, then dont get divorced, or find another sugar daddy sucker to marry. Also Alimony should NEVER be for life. 4 years max is plenty of time to gain some skills and find a job of your own.
Also she divorced him because she saw a picture of him at some 18 year old girls birthday party? Was he naked and banging her in this picture? If not then it is not unusual to go to birthday parties for people you know. and a divorce over a picture of him at one would be asinine.

Alimony is not meant as punishment but rather as payment for lodging, food, clothing, and other necessities.
No sane person can claim 48m/yr is necessary for those things. 48m/yr is enough to support over 2000 people, and unless I'm mistaken Veronica Lario is only one person. It's greed and a misuse of the legal system, plain and simple. Most people don't make (or even spend) 48 million in their entire life, never mind in a single year.

Someone like Berlusconi should have been smart enough to sign a prenup before the marriage imo.
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
I'd say that being a cheater, a pedophile, part of the mafia, corrupt, homophobic, racist, and, overall, being a terrible head of the state, both when it comes to intern and foreign affairs, a terrible husband and human being makes it more than enough reasons for a divorce, and more than enough reasons for him to deserve to pay such amount of money. Having to pay such amount of money as alimony to someone might be unfair, but it's berlusconi we're talking about, so who the hell cares?Also she divorced him because she saw a picture of him at some 18 year old girls birthday party? Was he naked and banging her in this picture? If not then it is not unusual to go to birthday parties for people you know. and a divorce over a picture of him at one would be asinine.
