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.

3% interest on 200 million dollars is 6 million dollars per year, or $500,000.00 per month. I know they have expensive lifestyles, but half a mill a month and they can both still work! Her knew home is close to his "to make it easy for the kids to go back and forth". Share custody and move on. Spousal support, really?
Apple, America does not have a royal family. A lot of people died to make sure of that.

I thought it was reported that Arnold was being the big party and paying out since he knows the break up was his fault. Guess it changes weekly. Remember that she gave up her job as conflict of interest when he became Governor. California may be a community property state, but that isn't the same as divorcing for cause. Maria would have no reason to "take her act back to Boston." What a dumb thing to say.

C Brown is a punk who will get his teeth knocked in at some point. He doesnt look very tough and he will eventually disrespect the wrong person and get it. He will probably end up with nothing as well. His days of money a luxury will dwindle

I think they should combine whatever BOTH of them have and split it down the middle. He shouldn't have to pay spousal support because of both of their money but he should pay child support and they should pay the kids' education equally. He's an a$$ for the kind of husband he is but does anyone really know what kind of wife she was??? Most people don't know what someone else's marriage is like behind closed doors. Just sayin...

WHAT, $200 million is not enough? I mean how greedy can one be? I know Arnold screwed up but come on. When was the last time Maria had a real job? I know you will probably say "stay at home mom" but I bet they have cooks, maids, gardners, nanny's. Really hard job, I mean stay at home mom.

Gosh wish I had millions to fight over. With times being hard now and many of us trying to survive on social security, this seems like trivial crap.

Poor Arnold..He's a Republican so he should not have to pay anything to his wife..who's a Democrat. Don't people know Republicans are Gods people. It use to be the Jews until the Republicans rewote the Bible.
Don't believe this. Listen to some of the Republicans make speeches these days. The GOP motto. Don't do as we do..do what we say!
