Arnold Schwarzenegger separating from his wife

Movie star-politician to split from Maria Shriver

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the movie star and former governor of California, is separating from his wife, TV correspondent Maria Shriver, a member of the Kennedy clan. The couple issued a joint statement about their 25-year marriage, saying that they are “living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.” Shriver, 55, has moved out of their Brentwood mansion, although they continue to raise their four kids together (ages 21, 20, 18 and 14). The couple got together after meeting at a celebrity tennis tournament 34 years ago, and had some rough patches, including allegations during Schwarzenegger’s 2003 campaign for governor that he’d groped several women. He apologized for his inappropriate behaviour and Shriver defended him.
