Italian leader Silvio Berlusconi is demanding an apology from his actress wife for going public with her plans to divorce the premier.
Veronica Lario, 52, has confirmed she is seeking a divorce to end her 19-year marriage because she's tired of his womanising ways.
The 72-year-old Prime Minister is upset because his estranged wife has accused him of "consorting with minors" in Italian newspaper articles.
The stunning divorce comes just a month before Berlusconi starts fighting for re-election.
The angry leader says, "I supposedly hang around with, as my wife said, 17-year-old girls. That is something I cannot put up with. I am the friend of the (girl's) father and nothing more.
"Veronica will have to publicly apologise to me. And I don't know if that will be enough."
