Arnold Schwarzenegger won't pay Maria Shriver spousal support

By Leo Reyes     Jul 21, 2011 in Entertainment
Former California Governor and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has indicated in his court document that he won't pay his wife Maria Shriver spousal support as they await resolution of their case.
Spousal support is a legal obligation to provide financial support to a spouse after marital separation.
Shriver's divorce petition was filed July 1 while Schwarzenegger did his own filing last Wednesday. They both sought joint custody of their children.
The couple are expected to reach a confidential out-of-court settlement of their separation case after 25 years of marriage.
The former Governor and his wife Maria Shriver recently separated after Schwarzenegger admitted to having a relationship with the household staff member who served for him for more than 20 years. He said he apologized to his family for the secret love affair.
Schwarzenegger has postponed his film comeback plans to focus on his personal and family problems.
But recently, announcements were made confirming the action star's return to film acting starting with his starring role as a border town sheriff in the Lionsgate film "Last Stand," to be directed by a Korean filmmaker.
It will be Schwarzenegger's first movie since stepping down as Governor of California, though he had a cameo role in "The Expendables" last year.
The movie is about a small town sheriff trying to stop a notorious drug cartel leader on the run. A source described it as an old-fashioned western-style film designed for the 63-year-old ex-Governor.
Last May, Schwarzenegger was reported to have been offered $40 Million to appear in two "Terminator" movies but on July 11, the actor's spokesman only confirmed his role in the "Last Stand."
