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.

HE broke the marriage contract(vowels) When he had affairs, He should have to pay for both attorneys. Why should she had to fork out her money when she did nothing wrong?

Arnold should have to move in with the maid he was boinking and never be given full custody of his and Maria's minor children. Then he can be pappa to his kid with the maid.

I thought Maria was Catholic. Since when are Catholics allowed to divorce? Or could it be she's only Catholic on Sunday and in front of the camera. As for Arnie, he's the one who was unfaithful. He needs to shut up and sit down. God knows how many other children are running around carrying his DNA.

I have not ONE OUNCE of sympathy for Arnold! He should give Maria and the children everything they are entitled to, need and ask for! He's the reason for this mess ... he's the one who should PAY for it!

Obviously you have some major personal issues. Deal with them and quit projecting.

What's his problem? Does he need more money to support his illegitimate family as opposed to his wife who has been faithful for 25 years? You blow Arnie and you're washed up.

At least Arnould admitted to paternity. Uncle Ted Kennedy was able to swim across bay rather then rescue his pregnant girlfriend Kopeckny' The common man would be up for double murder or manslaughter. Maria has no feelings or compassion when she has exposed this child to negative publicity. She shouldn't retain custody of biological kids. What ever happens to her Kenbnedy money aquired during marriage. Does Arnold get a part of Hyanis Port? She made no attempt to live in Sacramento. ( Too busy collecting traffic tickets and talkung on cell phone?) I would say "poor Arnold".

Really, $200 million doollars and needing spousal support, doesn/t even want to pay her own attorney?? I have been out of work 2 years, I would love to have even 1 of those millions.. This is as bad as any one caring what the Kardashians are up to.. Did they pay to have themselves promoted? Who are they and why does anyone care what they are doing and why? Does anyone really care? I can't imagine being that bored..
