Insiders say Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to pay big for cheating on Maria Shriver with their housekeeper — and he’s going to cough up more half of his fortune! Should she forgive him?
Arnold Schwarzenegger knows he screwed up big time by fathering a child with his housekeeper while he was married to Maria Shriver and subsequently embarrassing his entire family, but he’s going to try to make it up to them — particularly Maria — by giving up the majority of his fortune in the divorce and not just the 50/50 required by California state law. That means Maria, 55, could stand to receive more than $350 million dollars!
“Arnold realizes he is to blame for the collapse of his marriage. Maria was a loving wife and mother, and he doesn’t think that any amount of money can minimize what he has put her through. He wants to do the right thing, and go above and beyond what is required of him under the law,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline, estimating the 63-year-old “Govenator” is worth between $500-750 million.
Maria formally filed for divorce July 1, but settlement discussions between her divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, and his counsel, Bob Kaufman, have reportedly been in the works for months. Arnold is required by state law to file a formal response to the divorce petition within the next two weeks, but don’t expect to see all the inside details of the split splashed on the cover of magazines.
Said the insider, “This is going to be a very amicable divorce, and it won’t be played out in the media. Neither one of them wants that. Arnold hasn’t lost his mind, he is going to be giving away his fortune to her. He wants to show his children that he is taking responsibility for his actions.”
Do YOU think Maria should forgive Arnold for what he did? Will his money at least help ease the pain? Sound off below.
