Get it, Maria!
The former First Lady of California is going to make a ton of dough out of her divorce settlement with former CA governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
On Friday, Maria Shriver made it official and filed for divorce from her cheating husband. Since there was no prenup, all assets will be split 50/50, according to California law.
In fact, Arnold has agreed to give her "a very generous divorce settlement" out of his very wealthy earnings of $500-$750 million.
A source says:
"Arnold realized 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.
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 he is taking responsibility for his actions."
And with recent reports that Maria has been offered a major book deal that could be worth millions, it seems that Maria is at least getting some monetary compensation out of this whole mess. She's been through so much with her marriage and her family and has also been publicly humiliated in the media. This it the LAST thing Arnold can do for her.
