Terminated: Maria Shriver Files For Divorce From Arnold Schwarzenegger
Maria Shriver filed for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Six weeks after Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he had fathered a child out of wedlock, wife Maria Shriver filed divorce papers Friday to end their marriage of 25 years.
The former television journalist and Kennedy family heiress cited irreconcilable differences but offered no additional details about the breakup.
She also did not list a date when the couple separated, although they announced they had done so on May 9.
A week later, the former California governor and one-time action star admitted he fathered a child with a member of his household staff years ago.
The filing, which Shriver signed nearly two weeks ago, signals an end to a union that began with a storybook wedding on a spring day in 1986 in Cape Cod and brought together a bodybuilder and rising action star and a princess of the Kennedy clan, herself an up-and-coming network newscaster.
They apparently entered marriage with no plans that it would end. Shriver’s filing does not indicate the couple had a premarital agreement.
