Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has agreed to pay his estranged wife Veronica Lario €100,000 ($132,200) a day as part of a divorce settlement, the daily Corriere della Sera said on Friday.
The newspaper said the 36-million-euro-a-year settlement, reached after three years of negotiations, was filed with a court in Milan around Christmas.
No comment was immediately available from the court or from lawyers for either Mr. Berlusconi or Ms. Lario following e-mailed and telephoned requests for confirmation.
The report comes shortly after Mr. Berlusconi's return to frontline politics to lead the centre-right campaign ahead of an election in February.
Ms. Lario, a former actor who was married to Mr. Berlusconi for more than 22 years, asked for a divorce from the 76-year-old billionaire in 2009, accusing him of having an affair with a 17-year-old girl.
She had already delivered a public rebuke to her husband over his relations with other women, sending an open letter to the daily La Repubblica in 2007 in which she said he owed her a public apology after injuring her dignity as a woman.
She sought a divorce two years later, saying she could "no longer stay with a man who frequents minors" after reports emerged that Mr. Berlusconi had attended the 18th birthday party of aspiring model Noemi Letizia.
Since then he has been accompanied by a repeated allegations of sexual scandal, culminating in accounts last year of "bunga bunga" sex parties in his Milan home and charges of paying for sex with a juvenile prostitute, which he denies.
Ms. Lario had originally asked for a monthly alimony of €3.5 million, while Mr. Berlusconi had responded with an offer of no more than €300,000 a month.
The Corriere della Sera said the settlement, which would assign no blame to either party in the divorce, would not give Ms. Lario a €78-million villa near Brianza in northern Italy where she raised their three children.
