Arnold to Maria

0928_Arnold_Schwarzenegger_mariah_shriver_getty_article
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.

as big as he thinks he is, no one is on his website... http://www.schwarzenegger.com/forums and another thing...I saw him come out of the doctors office elevator years ago and was shocked at how small he really is...under six feet.

Maria looks like a horse and belongs to the Kennedy clan. Of course he cheated on her. What man would want to marry her for sex. He married her because she comes from a powerful family. But sex with the Latin maid was better than sex with a ugly white woman. Ugly or not, Latin women are better in bed. And I bet he will always remember the sex with the Latin maid. And try to forget having sex with his ugly white wife.

Only giving Maria hundreds of million dollars means he's being stingy... right.

the lack of reading comprehension on this site is astonishing. so many of you are losing your marbles over Maria asking for money from the book proceeds... but no where in the article does it state she asked for any. it's just TMZ taking making assumptions about things they have no knowledge of. you folks sure do know how to play into their hands, lol.

It's certainly not surprising to Californians that he's treating his family like a business deal. He will try to do his family what he did to us. Look out for No. He's a crappy actor as well.

#69. I agree. TMZ, though, may have just wanted to make the point that he is being a tough negotiator.

Arnold truly is an ugly, ignorant , self-important PIG!! Maria is well rid of him and I hope she takes him to the cleaners!! Feel sorry for the kids having this ass for a parent!! Karma will get him sooner than later!!

He's an arrogant self-serving piece of crap. Not surprised at all if it's true. Good God, that woman he slept with tells me all I need to know about what he's all about, but I already knew it before that came out.

His book his way. There are at least two sides to every story. I saw promos of Leslie Stahl interviewing him and he acts all contrite but never says the words. Who would want his tainted money from his bullshlt book?

I find it amazing that so many people think that Maria should get a single cent. Did she work to earn the money ? No. If a guy wants to get money for doing nothing, we call him a lazy bum. If a woman does the exact same thing, it's called getting what she deserves. Double standard much ?

when you have as much money as they both do, does it really matter? I don't think the money should be the storyline.
