Arnold and Maria Will Split Hundreds of Millions

7/2/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver will split around $400 million, and legally it's supposed to be divided  up 50/50, because we know there's no prenup.

0701_arnold_maria_split_composite_ex
TMZ broke the story Friday that Maria filed for divorce and the division of property is yet to be determined. Because there is no prenup, under California law, all earnings and other property acquired during the marriage is considered community property, which means a 50/50 split.

Arnold's worth is estimated at $300 million, while Maria's is around $100 million.  Since the couple has been married for a quarter century and it's probably impossible to separate what they each had before they tied the knot, it's likely the entire pot of money will be considered community property.

But here's the twist.  This divorce will never go to trial. It is going to settle out of court, and nothing requires Arnold and Maria to agree on a 50/50 split. Typically in these cases, there's a lot of horse trading ... Maria gets this house, Arnold gets that one, etc.

Maria's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, and Arnold's attorney, Bob Kaufman, will be hashing out the property settlement agreement -- probably for months.

One final point.  We will never know the terms of the final property settlement agreement, because it's going to be confidential.  Standard operating procedure for high-profile divorces.

No one should be married without a pre-nup

I hope this turns into world war 3 -- here we have an arrogant, loud, showy movie star-politician who has been acting as though he's somehow able to 'work above the fray' -- and it turns out he's a low-dog, lying, cheating, arrogant, loud, show-off who felt it was better to satisfy his pathetic ego by knocking up one of the servant girls. He betrayed his wife, marriage as an institution, his children, and the trust that millions of voters put in him. Arnold is lower than slime, and Maria deserves her day in court. That means his name should be dragged through the dirt and muck, and when it is all over I hope he takes is pathetic steroid enhanced body back to Austria and never returns to the United States again!

How can some people have SO MUCH and the rest of us so little. Can you imagine what $400 million dollars could do for US? I could pay bills, buy a few homes for people that don't have one, put the Grandchildren through college, and buy a new SUV for me (to see out of good since I am short), and just have a couple years of not worrying about bills, that I have always done. It is almost cruel for us to read about other people having so much money, when we have none. And to think they didn't have to even work very hard to get it. And we work hard and still have no money....! Wow, not fair, really !

l8HTaxes is right! Why Ahnuld did you sleep with your beast of a maid? Now that Ahnuld will be left with some money, you can bet that the maid will come after Maria and try to scoop up a bunch too! Hopefully you will be careful in the future on who you pork, Ahnuld!

Sociopaths are Sad    

It takes a certain kind of woman to stay married to and defend a man EVERYONE IN HER COMMUNITY KNOWS is a sleazebag who:

(1) Cheats on you every chance he gets including right under your nose in your own home & in your own bed & has multiple out-of-marriage children with these women

(2) When denied by the women he wants to cheat with....SEXUALLY ASSAULTS them to get sexual gratification

(3) Cheats on you with UNDERAGE GIRLS

(4) Has long-running affairs with women right under your nose

(5) Gives INTERVIEWS where he talks about womens' "tits" & "a$$"

It takes a certain kind of woman to love this type of man and accept and condone this behavior. Maria Shriver is that woman. Or, rather, she WAS that woman until it came out PUBLICLY EVERYWHERE and she needed to save face by divorcing him.

I think that kind of woman is very dangerous. God help us all if she enters into politics in any way. This woman is pre-moral. Like all the Kennedys.

Can you imagine what types of crimes she has effortlessly swept under the carpet and will continue to do so? Of course Maria will get EVERYTHING she wants in this divorce. She is just privy to too many of Arnold's crimes not to.

I think that kind of woman is very dangerous. God help us all if she enters into politics in any way. This woman is pre-moral. And while she was living with and loving this misogynistic abuser of women, Maria Shriver organized "women empowerment" conferences in California without batting an eye. What an vicious, reprehensible hypocrite Maria Shriver is.

Can you imagine what types of crimes she has effortlessly swept under the carpet and will continue to sweep under the carpet?

There is no pre-nup because Maria Shriver didn't want a pre-nup. She knew how much Arnold was worth. The ONLY reason she married him was because of his money and Hollywood connections. And the ONLY reason Arnold married Maria was because of her political connections. They wanted to take over the US. Lots of money, lots of Hollywood connections and lots of political connections. What more do you need to be the "King of the Castle", really?

But their disgusting sociopathic personalities, which allowed them to ac***ulate all that they had (money, Hollywood & political clout), ultimately proved to be their undoing. They are BOTH evil.

And as a final note: Of course Maria will get EVERYTHING she wants in this divorce. She is privy to too many of Arnold's secrets & crimes not to.

Too bad, because if she received any Kennedy money, it will be difficult to keep out of the pot.

Otherwise, she gave up a potentially more high-profile career to be his wife and mother to his children. I think she's entitled to half of the financial fruits of the marriage, but neither should get "spousal support."
