Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits Affair with Brigitte Nielsen in ‘Total Recall’

Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted to cheating on wife Maria Shriver and fathering a love child with a member of their household staff in the 1990s. Now, The Governator is admitting to another affair with actress Brigitte Nielsen.

Schwarzenegger admits to having had a “hot affair” with Nielsen while he and Shriver were dating in the pages of his new autobiography “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” TIME magazine reports.

He and Shriver were not only dating, but also living together at the time the affair began, but Schwarzenegger writes that he knew the affair with Nielsen would not last. It only made him realize he truly wanted to marry Shriver, according to TIME.

TMZ reports that the affair started when Schwarzenegger and Nielsen were filming the 1985 film “Red Sonja.” Nielsen first disclosed the “outrageous affair” with Schwarzenegger in her own memoir, published last year. The former California governor had not confirmed it until now. Nielsen claimed that she did not know he was involved with Shriver.
