Arnold Schwarzenegger has apparently accepted that his marriage to Maria Shriver is over, even though the divorce is not yet final. TMZ reports Schwarzenegger, 64, was spotted with a 25-ish brunette at a weekend party at the Bagatelle restaurant in West Hollywood. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the unnamed woman left the restaurant separately, but “The Expendables 2” actor and former California governor paused to talk with reports briefly.
Media gathered outside the restaurant asked Schwarzenegger about his thoughts on Sage Stallone’s death, for which he offered condolences – but he was mum about his date. TMZ also notes that the Schwarzenegger and Shriver divorce will definitely happen in the near future and was delayed because Maria Shriver allegedly “changed her mind constantly” about the possibility of reconciling. Schwarzenegger allegedly initially “begged” Shriver to “take him back” after news of a child he fathered with the household maid made headlines; but later it was allegedly Shriver who was “tormented” about finalizing the divorce. Both Schwarzenegger and Shriver are now in agreement about making their split official, according to TMZ.
Mildred Baena, the housekeeper known as “Patty” worked for Schwarzenegger and Shriver for more than 20 years, CBS News reports. Baena allegedly “threatened” to go public with the son Schwarzenegger had fathered with her 14 years prior, prompting a public admission about the love child and setting divorce discussions in the works.
The Scallywag and Vagabond notes Schwarzenegger and Shriver were married for 25 years. The website also reports that Schwarzenegger was spotted kissing the young brunette while dining at the Bagatelle restaurant.
