Sources tell TMZ ... Kaufman's already been in touch with Maria's attorney, Laura Wasser -- and we're told they are "moving forward" with divorce negotiations.

Kaufman and Wasser have gone head-to-head on other high profile celebrity splits -- and both specialize in something Arnold and Maria value right now ... keeping divorce settlements hush hush.

Do you think a man is more likely to cheat if he has money? Find Out The REAL Truth at Balleraddict.com!

@middleagedcrazy: Don't excite yourself, you old dear, just because some people see through the "Ms Shriver is a victim" story you are pushing. At your age, you're liable to get a stroke or something. :(

Keep your eyes on the Judge. Does anyone here think the judge in the Sheen case has even Once, considered the "Best interests of the children"?

No. No matter what you think of the parents, keep your eyes on the judge. Details at www.familylawcourts.com

There's so much to learn and mostly that media seldom gets it right. Including focusing on the correct issues.

Maria's a Kennedy. She has and has always had more than Arnold. She owes him nothing. She gave him her Kennedy credibility. Without that he would have had zero chance at a political career. And he gave her the Hollywood access that her forefather Kennedys enjoyed (banging starlets two at a time.) Though unlike her uncles, her style seems less vulgar and more along the lunch-with-Bono star closeness.
Either way, he still has a 13 year old to support. Uh... make that a couple of 13 year olds. But Maria will also get child support. For private schools, exclusive summer camps, ivy league universities, Frederic Fekkai haircuts, that first Beemer lease, and all that orthodonture to close the tooth-gap.

@Sociopaths are Sad You never quit do you.You used the same old tired BS comment on the other thread .It appears you don't like Maria so she is not a victim but it is her fault because she is a Kennedy and privileged her husband banged the maid that produced a child but the maid is the misunderstood victim.If Mildred had been the maid in another household the wife would have put her foot up her ass and kick her out along with Arnold. Don't blame the press or anyone else they made their bed now let them lie in it.Let Mildred hide and make Arnold pay.

By all means let us submit to ancestor worship/hatred before someone files for divorce. Were your ancestors 'good' -- okay you can file. Were your ancestors 'bad' -- nope you must have been bad yourself.

I can hear the tumbrels now -- parading those 'bad' people away down the streets of Malibu and Beverly Hills. Would the beach be a good place for the public scourging or executions?
