Arnold Dropped $65,000 on Baby Mama's House

5/20/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a $65,000 down payment on a house for his ex-housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena -- less than a year before he admitted to fathering her child ... TMZ has learned.


According to loan documents obtained by TMZ, Arnold made the "gift" payments in two installments from his own personal bank account -- one for $5,000 in April 2010 ... and one for $60,000 in May 2010.

According to the docs, the money was used to secure a loan for Patty's house in Bakersfield, CA -- where she currently lives with Arnold's 13-year-old love child.

The purchase price of the house was $268,000 -- so Arnold's down payment covered nearly a quarter of the total cost.

It's unclear if Maria was aware of the transaction at the time.

Her mortgage was $219,000. At $1200/week salary while working for Arnold, that's about $62,400/year. But she lost that job, and is not likely to get another one like that around Bakersfield. She's got a 13-year old child to support, though the older ones are now grown and independent. No wonder the ****-hit-the-fan when she was let go in a couple of months ago! To date, Arnold has gotten by real cheap. That's about to change BIG TIME! Not only is this traumatic for Arnold's family, but this is going to be very traumatic for this 13-year-old boy!

65,000 is a drop in a bucket.
He is worth around 200 mill.
On the other hand, he has to spread
the money!
He has 2 more kids(to be revealed soon)...

Betrayal and deceit in marriage are almost impossible to forgive. But even though Arnold is guilty of that, he has tried to act honorably toward his responsibility for his actions since his infidelity. I hope he will learn from this that marriage vows are meant to be kept, that the rules apply to him also, and there are consequences for our actions.

Big deal Arnold bought maid a house that's shocking news.He's going to be paying out alot more than that. The child now is entitled to as much as his children with Maria is. That's cheap of Arnold if thats all he thinks he's going to be paying. Hey,where's Gloria Allred she usually smells and follows the money in these sort of cases. Gloria hasn't came out of the woodwork yet bet she's rounding up the zillions of other women who are going to make similar claims. Stay tuned for Gloria Allreds breaking news.

This story is going to drag on for a looooong time. I'm already tired of hearing about it, but I bet Mel Gibson isn't.

This is going from bad to worse and its not over yet. I was wondering where this ugly fat maid got the money for the down payment. Now we know. I really do feel sorry for Maria.
She will land her feet but never be able to forgive or forget despite what she might say.

Not surprised to see this letter for 60,000 because clearly she could not buy that house on her salary. I would wonder how 60,000 missing from a bank account(unless they have individual accounts)went unnoticed even if he has millions in the account.
