Arnold to Maria

One of the big reasons Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't give Maria Shriver an advance copy of his autobiography is that he intends to keep all of the money he makes from it ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Even though Arnold and Maria were together 34 years and married for 25 and a good chunk of the book is about their relationship ... we're told Arnold has made it clear to her ... the book is HIS, and she will not be getting any part of his multi-million dollar advance or any royalties.

And there's more on the money front ... We're told Arnold has been extremely tough in negotiating a financial settlement with Maria -- one source says, "Arnold has been really stingy with Maria and the kids, which is amazing considering what he did."

One source groused ... Arnold has treated his divorce as a business deal, and not an end to the relationship he had with the mother of his kids.

And here's the most shocking part ... Sources tell us as recently as last week, Arnold asked Maria to take him back.  We're told ... she's not biting.

Arnold's rep told TMZ ... the divorce settlement negotiations are ongoing so no agreement has been struck.

Yup    

Like most dudes who are used to getting what they want whenever they demand it, he's thinking with his diick & not his brain. Cheaping a woman then bum rushing her doesn't work, "Ah-Nuld". If you really wanted her back, treat her with respect... then begin to woo her slowly but surely. That's what works; what you're doing doesn't...

Arnold is one selfish narcisistic pig who deserves to develope permanent impotence.

Maria does not need Arnold or his money she came from a family with money and if he keeps his she won't go lacking.

I didn't read anything about Maria fighting for a share of the book so why call her names and bash her ?

I thought she knew about the book and agreed because he was some kind of public cleansing for him, a type of therapy. I was thinking they agreed together and will get together in the end.

I don't get who would pay him millions of dollars for his autobiography. Yeah, like that's going to fly right off the shelves.
