Being one of the richest men in the world comes at a price.

AC Milan owner and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi -- who split with second wife Veronica Lario in 2009 -- has been ordered to pay his ex a whopping $4 million per month in alimony, the Associated Press reports.

According to the settlement paperwork filed Tuesday, Berlusconi will walk away with the couple's Villa Belvedere estate located near Milan.

Lario announced she was leaving the Italian politician in 2009 after he attended the 18th birthday party of an aspiring model.

"I am convinced that at this point it would be more dignified to stop here," Lario said after learning about the incident. "I cannot stay with a man who frequents minors."

The ex-couple -- who married in 1990 -- has three adult children together.

This was the second marriage for Berlusconi, who was previously married to Carla Dall'Oglio from 1965 to 1985.

Earlier this month, he publicly announced his engagement to 27-year-old Francesca Pascale -- a woman who is nearly 50 years his junior.

But Berlusconi isn't the only high-profile celebrity to fork over a big chunk of his fortune in the divorce settlement. Click through the slides below for eight other pricy payouts.
