(Newser) – Love hurts, but it's divorce that's pummeling Silvio Berlusconi's wallet, reports the Independent. He's agreed to fork over a $105 million villa that soon-to-be ex-wife Veronica Lario is extremely attached to, and she in return will settle for alimony much less than the $5.3 million a month she had originally demanded. The missus, armed with Berlusconi's string of sex scandals, had vowed to make things messy if the Italian PM didn't go along with one of the most expensive divorce settlements in history.
