Schwarzenegger Refusing Shriver Spousal Support

The couple during happier times.

I have long read “blind” items in various tabloid mags and sites concerning Arnold Schwarzenegger and what a narcissistic jerk he is, so it doesn’t surprise me that he doesn’t want to pay his wife spousal support.

My question to you is this:  Do you think he’s a jerk for not wanting to pay up even though his wife is a millionaire in her own right?   Or is she entitled to the money no matter what?

Here’s the latest:

As Yahoo! reports, according to court papers filed yesterday, the actor and former California governor asked a judge to suspend court-ordered payments to Shriver.

Shriver and Schwarzenegger announced they were separating in May after 25 years of marriage. Shortly after the split, the Los Angeles Times revealed that the actor had an ongoing affair with his housekeeper which resulted in a child.

Here’s the thing, the couple does not have a pre-nup so Shriver is already getting half of Schwarzenegger’s assets.  Do you think he should also have to continue paying her spousal support when she obviously doesn’t need it?  Or is that not the point?  Is she entitled to it no matter whether she needs it or not.  Is he a jerk for not wanting to pay, regardless of how much money she comes from? After all he’s done, should he just shut up and put up?

Schwarzenegger is seeking joint custody of their 17-year-old son Patrick and 13-year-old son Christopher.  They are expected to reach an out-of-court settlement.

These fellow celeb wives know the drama of Famous Hollywood Affairs!
