In an interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted to keeping the secret of a love child with the house maid as well as an affair with Danish model and actress, Brigitte Nielsen. Although estranged wife, Maria Shriver, appeared to truly be surprised and hurt by his betrayal, friends close to Shriver claim that she must have known about her husband’s sexual appetite.
TMZ initially reported that when Schwarzenegger made his appearance on 60 Minutes, the Terminator star was lying when he claimed that Shriver knew that he was cheating on her.
A source close to Shriver revealed that she may have had her suspicions, but she never confronted her husband. Allegedly, she would not have stayed with him if she knew he was being unfaithful. She was genuinely devastated when she learned of Schwarzenegger’s multiple affairs.
However, according to The Chicago Sun Times, those who are close to the journalist, including Hollywood friends and professional associates, maintain that Shriver was aware that Schwarzenegger made sexual advances toward other women on film sets and other places.
“I find it impossible to believe that Maria didn’t know. I think she simply elected to look the other way. … It was only after learning about the son Arnold conceived with Maria’s own housekeeper that she finally reached her breaking point,” one friend revealed.
