Arnold

Files New Divorce Docs

Kinder to Maria

7/25/2011 4:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger has just refiled his response to Maria Shriver's divorce petition, and this time he's not trying to deny her spousal support or attorney's fees.

As we first reported, sources connected with Arnold told us ... although he signed his legal response, he never read it and therefore didn't know his lawyer moved to block Maria's bid to get spousal support and her attorney's fees paid by him.

But according to the new docs, Arnold is not asking the judge to block either of Maria's requests.

The misstep caused some problems last week -- especially since Maria was dealing with the serious injury of their son, Christopher, at the time she got slapped with Arnold's papers.

I'm sorry to hear that Maria would have trouble getting along on $200 million without additional spousal support. Okay, Arnold deserves criticism for cavorting with Gamura, but sheesh... $200 mill. of his movie earnings doesn't cover that?

Good he should have to pay for everything and she should be able to keep liveing the same way she did when they where married he cheated and had another kid that he never told her about and even had her be apart of not only the kids life but the mothers to all those years without her knowing that's so worng!! And now he should pay!

I can not understand the need for spousal support when she is getting 200 million dollars. Pretty sure the extra 10-20 mill she will gain over the years will not make that much of a difference.

Men! Look at all these money hungry women! Solution? Don't get married! It isn't worth it - especially if you make good money - absolutely not worth it. Why give your hard earned money to some broad. It is like prostitution.

Gee your mother must be proud of you. Is this the way you would want someone to treat your mother or a sister? Arnold caused all of this, doubt Maria really wanted a divorce MOST women don't, besides she had her own funds, she will do better things with it anyway. He will just get drunk, cheap expensive women, smoke it up, and gamble it all away. Maria might actually do good things with it.

Rethink!!

Maria has everything under control, she doesn't need TMZ to butt in and try to stir stuff up to write inane nothings for filler on its site.

Hey maybe he just wants to get it over and done with. He did wrong and knows it and has said as much every time he spoke of it.

If she's super rich, then she could continue her existing lifestyle without a dime of extra padding, and he won't miss it either way, so what does it matter if she gets extra support or not?

If he dragged it out in a long public battle, he would still lose as much money and the lawyers would walk away with most of it anyways, and then people would be complaining the whole thing was a publicity stunt... can't win for losing.

i don't get why some people on here are questioning why Maria should get spousal support if she alread has "her own money"... what's that got to do with anything? Arnold messed up BIG TIME, and totally humiliated her... he's lucky that's all she's asking for on top of her share in their joint assets/money...and as it's all his fault then of course he should assume her legal costs... hopefully he won't make the same mistake again...

I think he'd be better off doing comedy movies like The Rock, than trying to b an action hero again...
