Schwarzenegger hires divorce attorney

Movie star and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger recently hired a divorce lawyer.

Schwarzenegger and his long-time wife, Maria Shriver, are reportedly parting ways after being married for 25 years. The announcement of the divorce came just months after Schwarzenegger finished his second term in the California governor’s mansion and nine days before he announced that he had fathered a child with a former household worker.

The Denver Post reports that Schwarzenegger hired divorce attorney Robert Kaufman, who has represented other high-profile clients such as Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Reese Witherspoon.

A number of media outlets have reported that the divorce could cost the man who starred in such iconic films as “Conan the Barbarian” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” more than $100 million.

The Post reports that the couple had a prenuptial agreement but the fact that Schwarzenegger cheated during the marriage could invalidate it.

Shriver has retained the services of a high-profile divorce attorney of her own. Laura Wasser has reportedly represented such clients as Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Stevie Wonder and Angelina Jolie.
