-Updated- Cheating Arnold Schwarzenegger will be a single man since Maria Shriver has filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage. Arnold had an affair with his housekeeper Mildred Baena and fathered a child the same year as his youngest son, Christopher with Maria Shriver. Sounds a lot like Salma Hayek and Linda Evangelista’s possible affair with Francois – except the news broke when the kids were four. Arnold managed to keep his affair and love child a secret for nearly 14 years!!
Maria separated from Arnold back in May 2011 and then Arnold dropped the bomb when he released this statement,
“After leaving the governor’s office, I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.”
For sometime Mildred (above) remained quiet with her son Joseph but she broke her silence earlier last month telling Hello magazine,
“Maria would ask if I needed to talk to her, and I kept saying no,” she reveals. “Finally, she asked point blank. Maria asked me directly if Joseph was Arnold’s son, and I just broke down. I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that yes he was and I was so sorry. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees.” (oh the drama in hollyweird!)
After sticking by Arnold for many years despite the incessant rumors of his infidelity, Maria Shriver has finally filed for divorce in Los Angeles County Superior Court today (7.1.11) citing “irreconcilable differences.” She’s seeking share joint physical and legal custody of their minor children Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13.
Maria Shriver is also seeking spousal support from Arnold Schwarzenegger and that he pay her attorney fees. No word on what kind of relationship Maria will have with Arnold and Mildred Baena’s son Joseph. Schwarzenegger’s spokesman Adam Mendelsohn, Maria’s attorney Laura Wasser have all declined to comment thus far. We’re thinking cheating Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t put up much of a fight..but just that’s a thought…
