Arnold’s love child may have been identified — in a 2003 report! Does this young man look like he could be Arnold’s son? And it seems there may be more than one!
The news that Arnold Schwarzenegger had fathered a love child over ten years ago has come as a major shock to most, but the story may have surfaced in 2003, when the Daily Mail reported that Arnold had a son with a flight attendant who worked on his private jet, Tammy Tousignant. This child however, according to Wendy Leigh, the Daily Mail writer who broke the story, may not be Arnold’s only love child!
Gawker reported today: “The boy, Tanner Tousignant, graduated from Brea Olinda High School in Brea, Calif., last year, according to his Facebook profile. His mother, Tammy Tousignant, served as a stewardess on Schwarzenegger’s private jet for 20 years.”
Tanner denied this to Gawker and his mother’s phone has been disconnected, but there is plenty of evidence that supports the original Daily Mail story. People claim the affair between Tammy and Arnold was well known, even by Maria Shriver. “Tammy would fly all over America with Arnold – to Colorado, to Sun Valley – and as soon as the plane landed anywhere, she would disembark with him, climb into his limousine and drive off with him, leaving the crew watching,” the original report claims.
Wendy also says in her Daily Mail article, no longer online, that three of Tammy’s colleagues recall her referring to her son as Arnold’s child. Tammy denies all this.
Tanner is 19 and recently graduated Brea Olinda High School in 2010 Gawker reports. His response to writer John Cook‘s inquiry as to whether or not he was Arnold’s son simply said, “im not his son…. don’t waist [sic] your time. it was just a stupid story made up 8 years ago.”
Further complicating the story is that after John wrote his post, Wendy contacted him to say that while she still stands behind her story 100%, she does not think Tanner is the love child currently being addressed. That means — two love children revealed in less than 12 hours!
It seems like this story is soon to become one of Tiger Woods proportions, if not greater. While Arnold, Maria and Tammy have all remained quiet so far it is also interesting to note that Maria follows Tammy on Twitter, meaning she likely never believed the 2003 report.
Tanner also bears a striking resemblance to Arnold’s 17-year-old son, Patrick Schwarzenegger.
