Arnie splits from wife of 25 years
Arnold Schwarzenegger has split from his Peabody Award-winning wife Maria Shriver after twenty-five years of marriage.
The couple released a joint statement yesterday which said that they are currently living apart whilst continuing to co-parent their four children; Shriver has apparently moved out of the family’s mansion in Brentwood, CA.
No word yet on whether the split relates to Arnold’s return to cinema, the torrent of allegations of sexual misconduct which have been pouring through his door for years, the fact that he’s built a crime-fighting base under the family home, or whether the pressure of being JFK’s niece and being married to the most successful Republican in America has finally got to Maria.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver have always seemed an unlikely couple, but until now they have apparently thrived on their differences. We do hope they sort things out.
