Man, some lucky a** lawyer is about to hit the JACKPOT with this one!
Maria Shriver wants to terminate her marriage with cheating hubby Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Shriver filed for divorce today setting the stage for what could be one of the costliest celebrity break-ups in history.
Shriver cites “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for ending the 25-year marriage, TMZ.com reported.
The petition was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by prominent attorney Laura Wasser, whom Shriver hired in May when Schwarzenegger went public with the news he had fathered a child with a former household staff member.
Sources told TMZ the couple does not have a prenuptial agreement, so assets would be divided evenly since California is a community property state. The power couple’s net worth has been assessed at between $200 million and $400 million.
This thing is about to be a “make it rain” dance of epic proportions.
Shriver, 55, is seeking joint custody of the couple’s two children who are minors, Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13. She and Schwarzenegger, 63, also have two older daughters, Katherine, 21, and Christina, 19.
Shriver has asked for spousal support from the former California governor and requested he pay her attorneys’ fees.
Some of the couple’s property would be considered separate, including jewelry and personal effects, along with earnings accumulated by Shriver after their separation, and other separate assets that were not determined.
