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.

Unless TMZ is a party to this divorce and looking to get a financial settlement, who's business is this but the parties involved? Give it a rest. I'm sure the two of them have very good lawyers and will work out all the details amongst themselves. I'm not getting the part where the rest of us are entitled to know all the details of their divorce.

Maria wouldn't want a dime from Arnold's 'memoir', nor does she need it. By the way, that maid is hideous, makes a person wonder how many times he was unfaithful and obviously didn't and doesn't care what they look like. He's just a great big PIG!

Maria has her own money. HE needs to remember that she is a Kennedy, Maria has the family money and power.

Maria, please. You are no the only woman (especially coming from the Kennedys) to have been cheated on. You came from money, didn't work for it, but fell into it because of your name. Arnold cheated, probably many times. Move on, go get a job like many other wives and mothers do. Learn that not all in this world is going to be handed to you on that silver platter you are used to......

The business part of his divorce.. You know the part that deals with money.. Is a business arrangement. Let's not cloud the issue by assuming that if he wants to come out ahead in what IS essentially a business arrangement he doesn't care about his family.

don't know why everybody's calling him cheap.. It's the Mel story all again.. He cheated sure.. but that means she's entitled to his money ? For christ sake the guy went through hell for this money.. Sure they raised the kids.. but it's not like they weren't their kids too.. Whatever you say about them.. they worked for it.. and making all those movies isn't exactly fun..
