Former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi is to marry a third time. He is engaged to 28-year-old Francesca Pascale, who is 50 years junior to him. She is a part of a support group called "Silvio, we miss you". Berlusconi has also apologized for his 'bunga bunga' parties, citing loneliness after divorce from his second wife. Veronica Laria had left him in 2008, citing his flirtations with young women.
Silvio Berlusconi also apologised for his now-infamous 'bunga bunga' parties, saying he was lonely after having split from his second wife. Berlusconi's appearance on Canale 5, a TV network, is thought to be an effort to boost the falling approval rates ahead of an election expected in February. No date for the election has been set yet.
Berlusconi is already being tried in a sex-scandal involving an under-age prostitute. His center-right party, which has dominated the Italian politics for 20 years, enjoys a 15 % approval rating.
