Arnold Schwarzenegger's Ex-Wife Will Receive A Fortune. Cheating Costs A Lot

Maria Shriver - the Terminator's ex-wife -  obtained another favorable decision in court 11 years after her divorce from Arnold.

After the divorce that dragged out for over a decade, Arnold Schwarzenegger's ex-wife will receive half of the famous actor's retirement accounts.

The Terminator (74) and his ex-wife, Maria Shriver (66 years old), reached a new agreement in court. In December 2021, ten years after the divorce, the two agreed to share the actor's $450 million fortune.

Now, Arnold Schwarzenegger's ex-wife will also receive half of the actor's pension plan. The agreement states that Maria Shriver is entitled to half of the money that was earned from when they got married in 1986 through the 2011 divorce.

Cheating Was Expensive For Arnold Schwarzenegger

Maria filed for divorce from the Terminator star in 2011 after finding out that her husband had an affair with their former housekeeper Mildred Baena.

Arnold admitted that he had a love child with the housekeeper. Joseph Baena is his child from the extramarital affair with Mildred Baena.

Schwarzenegger described Joseph as "terrific".

"[H]e totally understands the situation. So, it all has worked out … It’s a very tough situation for him," Schwarzenegger said.

"It’s a very tough situation for my kids, very tough situation for my family. It was tough for everybody. But it has happened and now we have to figure it out, right?"

The former governor of California kept secret for 15 years the fact that he leads a double life. But the physical resemblance between Joseph and Arnold prompted Maria Shriver to put pressure on the housekeeper to tell her the truth.

Maria and Arnold have four children together: Katherine (33 years old), Christina (31 years old), Patrick (29 years old), and Christopher (25 years old). Maria did demand her cheating husband pay her monthly spousal support and believed she was entitled to half the estate.
