Maria Shriver's People Leaked Arnold Baby Story

5/24/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Arnold Schwarzenegger baby drama story was leaked to the media by Maria Shriver's own people ... and they did it because Maria was so angry at Arnold, she wanted to do it herself.

TMZ has new information from sources connected to Maria.  We're told when Maria found out that Arnold was the father of Mildred Patty Baena's son, she was "hysterical" and wanted to hold a news conference blowing the lid off the scandal.

We're told Maria's friends talked her off a ledge and a plan was eventually hatched to leak the details to the L.A. Times and TMZ.

And we have new information about when Maria found out about the baby.  Now we're told Maria learned about Arnold's love child in late April or very early May. 

The timeline further supports the story TMZ broke earlier -- that Maria was miserable in her marriage and wanted out for a long time.  As we first reported, Maria was looking at pricey L.A. condos back in January with a Beverly Hillls realtor.

Maria has told friends for nearly two years she wanted a divorce but never pulled the trigger.  Maria, we're told, is now ready to end the marriage.

As for Arnold, our sources say he's upset Maria was talking to her friends about the scandal.  Arnold and his people know the story leaked through Maria's camp.

It was only a matter of time before TMZ would attack Maria. They always heap all the blame on women. Notice how there are NO stories whatsoever about all of Arnold's womanizing?

Jane Seamore recently said that Arnold had 2 other love children. But I'm sure TMZ couldn't find a way to make it all Jane Seamore's fault, so they didn't write anything about it.

I think the Sperminator got his just desserts. He thought Maria would be still concerned about appearances and keep her mouth shut. Once he let her know that he fathered a baby with the maid, I'm sure Maria said to hell with his image!

Having an affair wasnt right but I feel really sorry for the maid...and for her son...who did NOT know Arnold was his dad, the kid is not an actor or a celeb these are private people. Maria, like it or not she is mother to your childrens sibling, your tied to her forever, the smear campaign wont help anyone heal. Your kids have a brother to meet.

TMZ, stop posting photos of Maria looking like the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. This post and the one where she is looking wistfully forlorn and haggard on the beach only make her seem bitter and pitiful. I want to see more stories about Arnold's shena****ns, particularly with other females. Stop portraying the females involved in his mess in negative lights, and bash Arnold for a change. He can't smile and charm his way out of this one.

Somebody at TMZ just learned about the Liquify tool in Photoshop.

Using Photoshopped images to further sensationalize an already sensationalized headline. Hey Harvey, exactly how ethical is that?

If they did not have children Maria would be within her rights to leak this damaging information - or for that matter - hold a press conference.

But they do have children. And for Maria to deliberately leak this information that is damaging to her family and hurtful to her children (in many ways not the least of which is financial since it will limit the earning capacity of THEIR father) is despicable.

By her acts Maria has shown herself to be as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside.

Good for Maria if this story is true! I hope she rips his cheating nuts off in divorce court.

How are they attacking her? All the report says is that she got the story out there in her own way. Harvey & the TMZ staff think Arnold is lower than the stuff on the bottom of shoes.

Maria didn't screw him. His screwing is what got him and Patty in this situation. I still do not feel sorry for either one of them. They got exactly what they deserved. I guess she finally got tired of playiing the fool.

What a mess! Poor Maria, I am not big on plastic surgery, but she should look into botox to help those dramatic facial expressions. She's that rare case where it would really benefit her. I already feel bad for posting this. Sorry!
