LOS ANGELES (AP) — Six weeks after Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he had fathered a child out of wedlock, his wife Maria Shriver filed divorce papers Friday to end their marriage of 25 years.
The former television journalist and Kennedy family heir cited irreconcilable differences but offered no additional details about the breakup.
She also did not list a date when the couple separated, although they announced they had done so on May 9.
A week later, the former action film star and former governor admitted he fathered a child with a member of his household staff years ago.
Shriver's filing does not indicate the couple has a prenuptial agreement, which likely means Schwarzenegger's earnings from his career as a Hollywood megastar will be evenly divided with his estranged wife.
The couple were married in 1986 and have four children together, including two sons who are still minors. Shriver's petition seeks joint custody of the couple's sons, ages, 17 and 13. Shriver files to divorce Schwarzenegger - Yahoo! News
