Why did Maria Shiver and Arnold Schwarzenegger end their relationship?
Back in May 2011, reports claimed that Schwarzenegger eventually admitted that he fathered son Joseph Baena with the family’s former housekeeper, Mildred ‘Patty’ Baena, while he was married to Shiver. Maria Shiver filed for divorce in 2011 and 10 years later, the divorce was officially finalized. Their high net worths were reportedly the reason why their divorce took so long to get finalized. Schwarzenegger and Shriver reportedly share a $400 million fortune. High-asset divorces take considerable time because each asset must be categorized as marital or separate property. The two share four kids, daughters Katherine, 33, and Christina, 31, and sons Patrick, 29, and Christopher, 25.
