After 25 years of marriage, Maria Shriver has called it quits with her deceptive husband Arnold Schwarzenegger. Maria’s high profile lawyer Laura Wasser made it official by signing the paperwork Friday afternoon.
While most people are gearing up to celebrate the long Fourth of July weekend, Maria Shriver can now celebrate her own independence sans her deceitful hubby and all his baggage!
Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger announced their separation on May 9 and a week later the former Governor announced he had fathered a child with their maid, Mildred Baena. Her son, Joseph Baena, is now 13-years-old.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Maria Shriver stands to be richer than ever following her divorce from Arnie. Two leading divorce lawyers agree the scorned wife will likely earn at least $100 million because she gave up her career for Arnold and stuck with him for so long!
“Maria Shriver is certainly entitled to a generous amount in the settlement, one that is consistent with her lifestyle. If Arnold’s net worth is $300,000 million she should get half of that plus child support,” Susan Filan, famed legal expert, says.
Celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder — who has represented some of Hollywood’s most high-profile couples including Elizabeth Taylor and David Guest, and Robin Givens and Mike Tyson — agrees and points out a technicality that may result in Maria, 55, making slightly less than $150 million.
“If Arnold is worth $300 million, than Maria is likely to get $100 million. One third of that was probably money Arnold earned before he got married. So she would get half of $200 million because in the state of California it’s 50/50,” he explains.
Happy Independence Day Maria. You deserve it!
