Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has d¥mped her partner, Andrea Giambruno, a television journalist who was captured making s+xist comments.
The couple were together for almost 10 years and has a 7-year-old daughter together.
The 46-year-old Prime Minister took to social media on Friday, October 20, to announce her separation from Giambruno, a presenter on Mediaset’s news talkshow Diario Del Giorno, after recordings of him making foul remarks and suggestive comments towards a female colleague went viral.
“How do you do, darling?” Giambruno is heard telling a female colleague on the sidelines of his talk show.
“Do you know that (name redacted) and I are having an affair? All of Mediaset knows it and now you do too,” he tells the woman, who is also off camera
“But we’re looking for a third person, as we do three§%mes. Fours%mes too. Would you like to be part of our working group?” he says in remarks broadcast by a different television channel on Tuesday and Thursday.
In another comment, he says: “Can I touch my b@lls while I talk to you?”
On Friday afternoon, a spokesman for Mediaset, which is owned by the Berlusconi family, told the ANSA news agency Giambruno had been suspended as a presenter while the company looked into the situation.
