Silvio Berlusconi has blamed "feminist, communist" judges for a 260,000 dollars a-day divorce settlement with his former wife Veronica Lario.

The 76-year-old politician told the private La7 network on Tuesday that he will be appealing against the court's settlement, CBS News reported.

It had been initially reported that the settlement amounted to 130,000 dollars a-day but former Italian Premier said the figure, with arrears, was double that.

He said that "These are three women judges, feminists and communists, OK? These are the Milan judges who have persecuted me since 1994."

Lario had filed for divorce in 2009, citing Berlusconi's fondness for younger women. (ANI)
