Arnold Vs. Maria: Spousal Support Edition

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersLove LineArnold Schwarzenegger

arnold vs maria

Looks like Maria Shriver is going to try to get as much $$$ as possible from Arnold, and we don't blame her at all!

Earlier this month, we were pleased to hear that Arnold had agreed to give Maria "a very generous divorce settlement" out of his very wealthy earnings of $500-$750 million.

Now, we're less pleased to hear that Arnold doesn't want to give Maria the spousal support that she requested in her divorce petition.

We're ALSO not thrilled to report that Arnold is trying to deny Maria's request to have him pay her attorney's fees. Apparently, he feels that they should both pay their own lawyers separately.

As we mentioned earlier this month, Maria is going to do very well in this divorce, but honestly, we think he should give her everything she asks for! After all that she went through, he should ABSOLUTELY pay her attorney's fees.

As far as spousal support is concerned, he could afford to do that too! He's already got a movie in the works and he's going to be making PLENTY of money!

Actions have consequences, Arnold. Face the music, appease your ex-wife, and move on with your life.

What do U think? Should Arnold give Maria everything she asks for?

    men are fucking assholes thats all I can say, he deserves everything that's coming to him

    It is cases like these which make me sick. They are abusing programs that are put in place in order to keep families who really need it afloat. He has EVERY right to deny her spousal support and to pay her attorney's fees. She is independently wealthy and does not need his money to help support her anyway. She is just doing it to be spiteful. And while he screwed up big time and I would never consider him in the right, she is earning just as much of my loathing right now for this.

    Women have destroyed the institution of marriage. Young men today do not want to spend their live being a woman's slave. Maria, Arnold is a jerk but he also put up with your obnoxious ass for a very long time. it is a 2 way street honey. Stop being a parasite.

    Most women married to famous men who fight for everything they can in a divorce from their husbands are called gold diggers. Should Shriver be called a gold digger? Does she deserve it because she has been famous her whole life and is a Kennedy? Less famous women who get screwed over by their famous husbands receive nasty press for filing for a large amount of spousal support but Shriver will receive loads of emotional support from people because of pity for being cheated on publically. Shrivers best revenge should be moving forward with dignity not dragging the divorce on forever fighting for every dime she thinks she should get, she has plenty of money just being a Kennedy and her own career. Showing her children revenge in a divorce is not right.Re: Samtra – I agree with you.

    Re: boston61 – If you actually are 61, Boston, I don't suppose that you stayed home to raise the kiddies , cook, clean and keep the marriage all together. Seriously, women working was borne of rising prices and increasing financial necessity. You would also wither sitting in a house for forty years. Regarding Maria's divorce fees, it's kind of a slap to ask her to pay her divorce fees when the dissolution was borne of his dishonoring the marriage vows, just saying. Sure she can afford it, but should she in this case? Cheers.

    if she is getting half of everything I dont think she should get spousal support. Your telling me she can't support herself for the 200+ mill shes getting?



  7. 7

    she did leave her job to provide support to him in his position as governor — so, yup, pay up Arnold!



  8. 8

    Given her professional savings, her recent inheritances, and her tenuous family connections, etc., you think she would try to pretend to have some class, rise above it, not appear like a money needing grabber, and just go for child support. She clearly doesnt need any extra pin money. Unfortunately, her brother is the only one in her immediate family to have ever shown any real class.

    If she is getting plenty of money from the settlement then she def doesn't deserve the spousal support. If she was getting nothing then it's another story. Considering she is going to be quite wealthy as it is, then she just just put up and shut up…Although Arnold is a douche for what he did, i'm def on his side on this one!



  10. 10

    Everyone will hate me, but I will always be TEAM ARNOLD!



  11. 11

    Oh boohoo he cheated on me..That does not give an already rich woman the right to take everything THAT HE HAS WORKED FOR. People need to learn to respect other peoples personal property. Oh boohoo he cheated on me. Stop whining. Women are ALL gold digging whores.



  12. 12

    she has plenty of money and an ability to earn tons you tool. divorce settlements arent about getting back at someone ahole. but if youre an angry bully like you, i guess its all about hurting people.



  13. 13

    They had no pre-nup, so yep she should get half. She should get child support, but spousal support? No. She has two feet and a heartbeat, bitch can work if she needs to.

    Re: NookiesWA – Raising kids is no picnic. She worked just as hard, 50/50.



  15. 15

    She just proved why Arnold cheated on her… Disgusting!!!!!!



  16. 16

    Re: @v@ – I agree with you. This divorce is HIS fault, so he needs to at least pay the lawyer fees.



  17. 17

    I'm sorry, but woman doesn't need spousal support. Woman is rich, woman can work, woman is self sufficient. Get the child support, get the huge, huge settlement and move one. Women who depend on men to support them when they have the means and the capability to support themselves set the women's movement back 50 years. By asking for spousal support, she's saying she needs him to survive….SO NOT TRUE.

    Move on Maria and stop looking like a greedy bitch.



  18. 18

    Spousal support? Why does she need more money than the $750mm she may be receiving? Is that going to cure her broken heart? greedy, greedy, greedy. She makes women look bad. Arnold is an a $$ wipe but settle the matter, Maria and move on. You're not the only person in the world who has dealt with a cheating skunk. Take the settlement. Your family made money from corruption. Don't try playing the petunia.



  19. 19

    I find it hilarious that women will say nothing will mend a broken heart..ROFL right, apparently money does. Women = Useless whores.



  20. 20

    she should pay HIM spousal support after all hes got extra mouths to feed …



  21. 21

    even be it illigitemate kids and mistresses mouths to feed the guys got bills to pay

    Re: @v@ – well by this logic, arnold was actually in the relationship with the woman that cooked, took cared of the kiddies and cleaned in his house lol so maybe that is what kept his marriage together for so long ..lol seriously though, men and women cheat all the time-are people pissed about it-sure. But she doesn't deserve more sympathy than the unknown woman down the street.

    Re: Woof – Lol, good point. With their money, I don't see why she doesn't just walk away without spousal and make a clean break, but as it's something spouses can ask the court for, she's thus perhaps been advised to ask for it. I doubt she wanted a divorce before the humiliation, so he could pony up for that, considering.



  24. 24

    I heard she may now be getting it, but I still think she should not.

    Re: ingrid2010
