Schwarzenneger’s Acting Career on Hold

Former California governor, Arnold Schwarzenneger decided to put his acting career and his movie comeback on hold as he settles marital and domestic fallout following his affair with one of his previous housekeepers. Schwarzenneger is now preparing for a possible extremely costly divorce.

Based from a statement released from Schwarzenneger’s office, the “Terminator” action superstar requested his talent agency to put on hold all his movie projects that are already under negotiation until further notice.

The statement said that Schwarzenneger would rather focus on personal matters and is not yet willing to commit to any acting jobs or production schedules. That means discussions for “Cry Macho” and a sequel of “Terminator” will only resume when Schwarzenneger decides he is ready.

Just recently, the rumor that Schwarzenneger fathered a child with his former housekeeper was confirmed. This set the stage for a possibly long and very expensive divorce that will stand out even in Los Angeles where matrimonial split-ups are scandalous on the regular.

Maria Shriver, Schwarzenneger’s wife, is expected to cash in a lot of money from this divorce according to a some divorce attorneys. They said that even though California follows a no-fault divorce, meaning the court cannot technically use Schwarzenneger’s acknowledgement of extra-marital affairs against him, in reality it will be.

Judges who know the story will sympathize on Shriver and will most likely hold Schwarzenneger’s actions against him, said Attorney Robert Nachshin. Nachshin is a famous divorce lawyer that has handled cases of the ex-wives of prominent people in the entertainment industry like Rod Stewart, Eddie Vedder, and Will Smith.

Nachshin added that based on his experience, Shriver may get a minimum of $100,000 monthly spousal support and an additional $40,000 in child support of their three minor children.

Will the Royal Bride Sign a Prenup?

It would be wise for the prince, who is next in line to the throne, to prepare a prenuptial agreement with bride-to-be Kate Middleton, British lawyers said. They even left the prince with a warning that not all fairy tales end in happy ever after.

James Stewart, a divorce lawyer, said that if the prince will base it on statistics, it is really best to sign a prenup. Stewart handled the divorce case between Guy Ritchie and Madonna.

The royal family of Britain is unfortunately plagued by many failed messages. Queen Elizabeth II’s three children come from failed marriages and Prince William’s uncle, Charles Spencer, went through divorce twice. The office of Prince William did not comment on this issue, however.

Prenuptial agreements are certainly common in the U.S., but that is not the case in Britain. This only became acceptable in British courts after London was tagged as the divorce capital of the world.

Stewart mentioned that all the members of the Royal family, royal and regal as they are, must understand that they are still commoners in the eyes of U.K. law. Their huge trust funds should be enough to push them to straighten out the details of their finances before they tie the knot.

A prenup may be perceived as an opposition to the idea that when you say “until death do us part”, it means forever. However, Professor Matthew Brundson Tully said that we should not and could not ignore the statistics.

Prince William’s camp is still silent about the possibility of a prenuptial agreement.
