Arnold/Maria Split

A Long Time Coming

5/10/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Shriver has been "miserable" in her marriage for a long, long time, sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... and it's all about Arnold Schwarzenegger's "craziness."

Arnold Schwarzenegger Divorce

We're told Maria moved out of the couple's L.A. mansion months ago.  Sources tell us she's been extremely unhappy in her marriage for years, complaining about Arnold's out of control ego, as well as his womanizing.

We're also told Maria feels Arnold has ignored her for years and she's felt terribly unappreciated.

Sources say the couple has spent "very little time together" for several years.  Maria was frequently absent from Sacramento while Arnold was Governor. 

The situation got worse once Arnold left office and decided he wanted to resurrect his movie career.  Maria felt Arnold was becoming more erratic -- more "unstable." 

Our sources say Maria's religious views caused her deep distress over whether to split and/or divorce.   As one source put it: "She's been a lost soul for a long time."

Such balanced reporting (not!). Does he pick his nose, too? Or is it all about where he wipes the snot? Maybe tomorrow we can all read his side of the story. Oops! Got to go ... there's some paint drying nearby that I'd like to watch.

@John
That is sad to read. Your wife is obviously depressed, otherwise she wouldnt be so problematic and moody. It might be a long shot but try reading a few buddhist teachings (Lama Yeshe wisdom archive or if that doesnt feel right try Amaravati site with the Theravada Buddhist teachings, its more to the point...google it) it might really help you gain a better overview on the situation and perhaps help you help your wife. All the western psychology is still today decades and decades behind the most basic buddhist psychology. This is NOT a religion, no gods, no praying, nothing to blindly believe in, Im talking about human psychology. Research it, it will help.

When I first saw this I immediately thought, "Arnold is screwing around again!" He does have a history with women and under-age girls.

Really? Please post the source for this. I've never heard a peep about Arnold fooling around with underage girls. Was it when he was in high school? Well, so what, it's almost a requirement if you want to get along with the Kennedys. There is nothing you can accuse Arnold of that the Kennedys haven't done and/or are still doing. John openly fooled around when he was president, not to mention the nude swimming sessions with the new Whitehouse interns.

@ PaulWS, Hell yeah man! Exactly everyone's blaming Arnold, like he's America's most hated(or California's most hated for that matter). If he never passed the video game, cell phone laws and knew about politics like Maria, none of you would be saying as many bad things. Mostly all of you appear bias for real but at the same time I am honestly On Arnold's side. All of you feeling sorry for Maria because she puts all of their personal problems out there or goes on about how unhappy she is. Yes I understand it's hard if that's the truth on how the marriage really went, but at the same time have ANY of you tried to see what it's like from Arnold's view. He practically came from NOTHING and worked his a-s-s Off for everything he WANTED...and guess what? HE GOT EVERYTHING HE WANTED AND STRIVED FOR, EVEN MARIA! What has she done? besides being political roalty and news reporter? NOTHING! She has done projects and other successful things on the side, if Arnold was really this bad..don't you think this would had ended LONG AGO(regardless of kids ages, eve though they tried to work it out for them first). I love Arnold and he has appeared in some of the greatest films of all time(NO LIE EITHER, look it up and do research there's an official list of greatest movies ever amde and Terminator franchise is one them). She loved him, he loved her, but he was still in acting when they were together, then he wanted to try something different. Does he have bad ways? Yes probably so, but that dosen't make her a saint and if it is true that she's the innocent one she needs to be a grown woman about it! Sorry but to me I wouldn't want to be bothered with/love someone who was unhappy with me for SO long and slowly putting out hints and other things relating to that without officially solving the problem sooner and privately. If you love/have loved someone think about how it may feel if they're being whiney or actually are telling the truth-but putting it out there for the public to scrutinize and judge, Which will, of course, Make him look like the bad guy. Nobody is perfect so both of them are to blame, She should have tried her d-a-m-n hardest to make him figure himself out and change, not just try a few times(not even majorly) and be alone. Would you stick by a man like that? for me nope, if she leaving now she could have been left. Arnold keep doing you, don't let anyone phase you, THERE HAS TO BE SOMEONE READING THIS THAT AGREES WITH AT LEAST 1 THING I SAID THUS FAR! I'm not going to bash Arnold I admire him & Hope he does well, like he dosen't deserve love. Yes, if it wasn't for her he wouldn't be in the political position, but at the same time if it wasn't for him she wouldn't be mentioned unless she made major headlines(rarely). 25 years..long a-s-s time to wait for this plus if he is THAT bad like I mentioned before, wouldn't he have been cheated on her or whatever bad thing he did to make her upset? Sorry but if SHE WASN'T IN THE POLITICAL FILED AND WAS A NOBODY OR A SMALL STAR BELOW HIM OR AT THE SAME LEVEL AS HIM ALL OF YOU WOULDN'T BE SAYING ANYTHING. Don't ever enter a relationship with super high expectations or all you will see is the flaws-which applies to Maria right now. He's not ugly or creeppy, odd yes maybe but not terrible, he will find someone maybe just as she may. Bet if Arnold died or something tragic happened then everyone would be talking different so stop and show respect, not bashing him. Love ya Arnold & TMZ you guys rock!

Maria is one ugly bitch. It's about time Ahnold realized he was married to Skeletor. By the power of Grayskull I command Ahnold to molest teens.

there are many views here, but, now she will paint a horrible picture of him. he has done lots of good, and he is a total success. she knew who and what he is when she married him. she loved and adored him for all of that. she is jealous of him, and really a boring person. he has put up with her for all of those years to keep their family together. they are both better on their own. her religion etc, just have her the boring way she is. she needs to eat more, and look better. she has always looked horrible...and not well. maybe now, she will work on her own unhealthy issues..right...it is all his fault...sure..not a good sign.

I always knew Arnold was a complete narcissist-----ego (narcissism), controlling, scary, womanizer, lack of empathy, (all narcissistic)......these type of men suck the spirit out of women and are impossible to live with. Maria, don't take him back--his good behavior will last a week at tops----

Sorry hon.

Men with their act together have NO NEED in this universe to put up with menopausal women.

Life is too short to stick around with a miserable woman.

Oh puhleeez phoney Maria! You are a control freak and want to be the center of attention; but, you are no longer marketable as "a hot babe". News reporters are young and thin hispanic/latina gals in California. Just like the rest of us, you are getting older and you have deprived yourself of food and done Yoga to the point of looking like a hag. Even a dog likes meat on his bone!! Remember, your husband likes latina fur. He said so himself! Maybe Fabe Nunez is repaying him with one or two or three chiquitas for the murder pardon before A.S. left the Governor's office.
