(NEW YORK) -- Although he's lost his job and was sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi still knows love is the most important thing in his life.
On Monday, it was announced that the 76-year-old tycoon had gotten engaged to his 27-year-old girlfriend, Francesca Pascale, described by her fiancée as "a beautiful girl, beautiful from the outside, but even more beautiful inside."
The age gap doesn't seem to disturb Berlusconi too much, who was previously married twice before and has five children.
Pascale may have her work cut out for her since Berlusconi is known to be something of a tomcat. He was previously accused of having sex with an underage girl at one of his infamous "Bunga Bunga" parties at his villa in Milan.
