Shriver hires divorce lawyer

Coming shortly after the revelation that her husband, movie star and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, had a child with a household worker, it was discovered that Maria Shriver has retained the services of a prominent divorce lawyer.

Shriver, the niece of President John F. Kennedy, has hired Laura Wasser, who has been involved in a number of high-profile celebrity divorce cases, according to the Huffington Post.

The news source reports that it is unclear whether Schwarzenegger, who admitted to fathering a child with Mildred Baena, has retained the services of a divorce attorney.

The former body builder from Austria recently ended his tenure as the governor of California and had planned to get back into the movie business, however those plans may now be on hold, reports The Associated Press.

Schwarzenegger reportedly told his talent agency to postpone any of his movie projects that were either beginning to approach production or were being negotiated until further notice.

“Gov. Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines,” a statement from his office said.
