Arnold's Divorce Response -- Conflict Over Support

7/21/2011 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Arnold Schwarzenegger has filed his response to Maria Shriver's divorce petition, and the former couple is at odds over whether Maria should get spousal support.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold's lawyer, Bob Kaufman, checked the box on the legal docs asking the judge to terminate any right on Maria's part to get spousal support.  Maria asked for spousal support in her petition.

Arnold -- like Maria -- is asking for joint custody of the couple's two minor children.

And there's another conflict.  Maria is asking Arnold to pay for her attorney's fees.  Arnold's response asks that the judge make each party foot the bill for their respective lawyers.

TMZ broke the story ... there is no prenup, so under California law both Arnold and Maria are entitled to a 50/50 split of all earnings and property accumulated during their 25-year marriage.  The two are estimated to be worth around $400 million.

Fact is ... since -- as we first reported -- Arnold will get the very expensive family home -- Maria will probably end up with at least as much if not more cash than Arnold, so spousal support may become a non-issue ... especially since Arnold isn't earning any real money right now.

Chris Brown -- Neighbors Say He's a Nightmare


Chris Brown is at war with his fellow West Hollywood condo owners, who claim the rapper is the neighbor from hell, parking in handicapped spaces, blasting music, and racing dogs in hallways.   

0719_chris_brown_parking_launch_EX_v2
TMZ has obtained several pics of Brown's super-expensive rides ... clearly parked in spaces reserved for disabled drivers.  We're told Chris has been ticketed numerous times by the city.

The building manager tells us everyone is fed up and they're now planning on towing Chris' cars if he dares park there again. 

Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, Chris is the one who's getting screwed.  Geragos says, the deed clearly shows the two spaces belong to Chris, but the developer never disclosed the spots were reserved for the handicapped.  Geragos says Chris is in litigation with the building over the spaces and plans to fight the tickets as well.  But the building manager says Chris is parking in other handicapped spots as well.

But the gripes go beyond parking spaces.  Chris' fellow condo-owners tell TMZ ... the dude is utterly disrespectful, blasting loud music and partying day and night ... even racing dogs down the hallways at all hours.

And that's not all.  We're told police showed up this week, after someone vandalized the elevator by carving "C.B." on the elevator door.

Mind you ... Chris has only lived in the building a few months.

It's condo-mania!


NFL Superstar Antonio Gates -- The WEDDING PICS


San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates had one hell of a productive off-season -- the future Hall-of-Famer just got married to his longtime girlfriend ... and TMZ has the pics.

0720_antonio_gates_launch_EX_v2
Gates -- who will probably be the #1 tight end drafted in your 2011 fantasy league -- tied the knot to model-turned-business owner Sasha Dindayal on July 9 during a lavish ceremony at the Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego.

We're told several Chargers were among the 250 guests -- including defensive stars Shaun Phillips and Stephen Cooper.

But the best part -- THE FOOD!!!  Guests were treated to a 5-course meal ... consisting of duck foie gras ... caramelized shallot ravioli in a brandy butter sauce ...  braised short ribs and grilled prawns with buttermilk mashed potatoes ... and for dessert -- red velvet wedding cake with marble sponge cake which was FLOWN IN from Trinidad.
 
After the ceremony, the couple took off to Tahiti for the honeymoon.

A happy tight end ... makes for a happy fantasy team.

The split everything down the middle. If he is worth 400 million and her 200 million the he loses 100 million and that is it. Two house he get one and she get the other, I'd give her first choice. No support, she can make money. He however must pay for the kid support but they split there education.
Now that is a fair split of there asset.

California law is quite clear on matters of spousal support and division of assets/debts.

If Ah-nuld keeps the house, that amount (the current value) is part of his portion of the assets.

If they had any brains, they'd simply liquify everything and split the money.

Since you are dealing with people who have millions at their disposal, they should each pay for their own lawyers. Someone who is awarded millions in a settlement does not need spousal support.

Child support payments are offset by time spent with the child. Ah-nuld should ask for joint physical and legal custody, thereby eliminating the child support issue altogether. Each parent then becomes responsible for paying the child's support for the portion of time (half) that the child lives with that parent.

Either their lawyers are looking for lots of money in the hashing out, or they are incompetent if they have not advised their clients of this.

And, Maria, take your act back to Boston. Massachusetts law DOES NOT apply in CA--and, if you wanted to make Ah-nuld the villain, you should have gone back to Mass where the laws are more archaic.

No you are dead wrong about one thing! Arnold committed Adultry and a best he shouyld have to pay ALL the attorney fee's for his in-discretions. I do not care what state your in Adultry as public as what your beloved Ar-nuld has done, is evident at placing fault on prompting the divorce. Furthermore, he is paying for his out of wedd lock child and mother's residence, than he can pay Maria his wife of many years spousal support! Oh and one more thing, you leave Maria Shriver Kennedy alone she can live anywhere she wishes! She's a true lady and A member of America's Royal Family !

Who cares what America thinks! A divorce is a private matter worked out by the divorcing couple and their greedy lawyers. Instead of being concerned about Arnold and Maria, those who have written should be concerned about their inability to spell correctly and use proper sentence structure. That's your personal responsibility and it has nothing to do with Arnold and Maria.

Anyone who has an income from any source and who's capable of earning a living should not receive spousal support. Spousal support is a temporary situation whereby the other party with no income is given time to get back on their feet and lately she's not been off her feet -- not even in the bedroom so it seems.

One person commented that Shriver is part of the "American Royal Family"..Seriously? The Kennedy & Shriver families are full of boot leggers & accused of being involved in murders and cover-ups. Royal Family? I don't think so!
