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.

Hey Arnold, you better battle for everything you can get especially CASH.... Because your movie career is DONE, make movies but no one is going to come and see a slime bag actor like yourself.... Face your washed up.... Maybe Black market Hispanic housekeepers since you seem so well educated in the area if you know what I mean. Your pure TRASH exterminator......

Arnold should pay. He still receives royalties and cheating on his wife repeatedly. And DEFINITELY he should pay the attorney fees. If there was no cheating, she would not have had to file for divorce.

NOOOOO... If Arnie can play, then Arnie can pay. If he can afford to put out the cash for his girlfriend and that child, then he can afford to pay out the nose. I'm not saying he shouldn't have to pay for the childs support, but come on here, why should the broad be sitting around eating bon-bons. Maria'a worth should not be an issue

Let's see...HE cheated not once but several times, HE has a kid by one of his trists. Who knows how many more he has out there. In my opinion HE needs to PAY for BOTH lawyers, and court costs, and HE needs to pay Maria spousal support.
SHE did nothing wrong-she is the victim here. If it were not for HIS cheating she would NOT be divorcing him.

this is for apple, the california courts do not care about adultry, think about it, they are in LA, divorce rates are higher there than anywhere else.
Maria just bought a 10million dollar home in brentwood by arnold so the kids can be close, now she does have the Kennedy trust for which I sincerely doubt he can garnish, I say make an offer of 100 million and call it a day. If she can't live on that then she has some serious problems.

Arnold gave Maria a reason to seek a divorce, so he should have to pay for her attorney fees. Because of his actions she needs an attorney.

I dont't know why you are even posting this story. Who cares. People who are worth 400 million dollars are of no interest to me when the gov. is cutting social security and medicare and taking away meals on wheels to indigent seniors. There is so much poverty and misery in this world why should anyone care about the filthy rich?

Actually I alwys thought he was a terrible actor. As for trust fund, that shouldn't be counted anyway. That is her families money left for HER...NOT HIM. And yes, he does get royalties from movies and such. Pay Arnie, Pay.

People seem to forget that Maria Shriver was a Highly paid reporter who was forced to put aside her career when Ah-nuld decided he wanted to be Da Guvuhnator becuase.. she was already taking heat that she could not be impartial just because she was married to an active Republican. There's her lost wages to consider, which were far more than you or I could ever hope to make. She wasn't making Katie Couric buckaroos but she was pulling down say, Diane Sawyer type bucks. Now that she is the EX-Wife of a former Governor, and a deeply disgraced one at that, I doubt any of the more credible news networks would hire her. She's older, people call her "Skelator" now because she's chosen to stay very thin and yet, has that distinctive Kennedy Square Jaw and defined cheekbones. She's not exactly camera friendly. If she were a man in his early 50's, it wouldn't matter so much that she she looks her age, but that's the way things are. Ah-nuld claims he already wants to go back to acting and he can easily pay her some spousal support. As fdorr the folks criticizing him for staying in the Family home - he probably chose to do it so their minor children can stay in the same schools, not move away from their friends and social activities and perhaps have a little bit of normalcy in their life.
