Arnold is a “Baby Daddy”

Posted in Celebrity Divorce, Celebrity Paternity tagged , at 11:26 am by demetriagraves

According to latest news, Maria Shriver has hired a top divorce attorney, but hasn’t decided yet whether she wants to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger. Details are emerging regarding the former California governor’s affair with his housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena and their teenage love child, plus new information is emerging about Schwarzenegger’s financial support for his 13-year-old out-of-wedlock son.
A birth certificate has surfaced showing the boy, was born in October 1997 – just a week after Shriver gave birth to their youngest son, Christopher. Baena got divorced less than a month later. Settlement papers reveal she claimed she and her husband had no children. Schwarzenegger has been supporting the teenager. He lives with his mother in a four bedroom home in Bakersfield, Calif.

The 50 year-old Baena who is originally from Guatemala retired from the Schwarzenegger household in January after working there for twenty years.

It’s assumed that Schwarzenegger reached an agreement with Baena. By which he paid her child support, he took care of her, potentially bought her a house, and in exchange, he got confidentiality. Child support is modifiable by a court in California. Baena could always go in and say, ‘The circumstances have changed, I need more money.’ She could also ask to get the confidentiality clause lifted. She could say, ‘All of this media is happening now, people are saying things about me that aren’t true. I need to respond,’ and she could ask the court to lift that. The court probably wouldn’t, but the court could change the child support at any time.

This scandal doesn’t seem to be affecting Schwarzenegger’s Hollywood comeback. He recently announced plans to play himself in an animated TV show called “The Governator” and is scheduled to begin filming this summer on “Cry Macho,” a film drama in which he would play a horse trainer. The former world bodybuilding champion is also in negotiations to reprise what is arguably his most popular role, as the relentless killer cyborg in the “Terminator” films. Many observers are amazed the former governor risked his political and film careers, and ultimately, his family.
As for Marie Shriver, if she goes forward with divorce, she would be entitled to 50 percent of the couple’s assets. California is a community property state. Unless there’s a pre-nup, she’s entitled to half of the assets that were accrued during the marriage. Shriver would get child support, as well as spousal support. Shriver would be entitled to spousal support because she gave up her career for him, she was a broadcast journalist. Marie and Arnold have four children together.

Is Beyonce related to Nixon?

Posted in Celebrity Paternity tagged at 6:28 pm by demetriagraves

Alexsandra Wright has given birth to a baby boy on February 4th. Wright, as you may recall, is the woman who filed a paternity suit against Mathew Knowles, father of Destiny’s Child singer Beyonce Knowles. If Wright’s claims are true then Beyonce has a new half-brother named Nixon.

Wright has claimed that she had an 18 month long relationship with Mathew and Mathew has never denied this.  Wright also says that they had picked the baby’s name together.

Mathew Knowles initially conveyed that he has no knowledge of the birth of a child and that he never had a DNA test. Well, it looks like Mathew will now been having a DNA test on March 1st.

Mathew has been ordered by a judge to pay child support to Wright unless the DNA test he is scheduled to have soon proves that he’s not Nixon’s father.

A Los Angeles judge has temporarily ordered Knowles to pay the newborn’s mother, Alexsandra Wright, $8,200 a month in child support plus cover 100 percent of uninsured medical fees. Additionally, the father to both Beyonce and her younger sister Solange, must pay Wright $20,750 for the month of January, despite reportedly forking over $10,000 before the child’s birth to cover medical costs.

Although Knowles has yet to confirm the rumored relationship, he filed for divorce from his wife around the same time that stories of his infidelity hit the news circuit. No specific reason was given for the split, but the former couple publicly vowed to remain “good friends” as well as “business partners.”

We’ll be anxiously awaiting the results of the paternity test, to find out if Nixon is a half brother to Beyonce and Solange and if the temporary payments will become permanent or not.

Reeves Paternity Case Dismissed

Posted in Celebrity Paternity, Paternity, Spousal Support tagged , , at 1:35 am by demetriagraves

Just when we’d thought that we’d heard it all here’s another celebrity who has had to defend himself in court against a paternity claim.

A Canadian woman who claims Keanu Reeves is the father of her four children has had her case dismissed after a judge branded it “patently unbelievable.”

Karen Sala filed a suit against the actor and was seeking $3 million a month in spousal support going back to November 2006, and $150,000 a month in child support going back to June 1988. She is maintaining Reeves is the biological father of her four adult children.

She also alleged in an affidavit that Reeves agreed to take her to the Academy Awards and promised they would eventually marry.

Sala filed notice in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice family branch in May, asking for a declaration of parentage from the actor. According to reports, Sala has known Reeves since age nine, when he was seven, and briefly lived with his family as a teen after running away from home.
Reeves who grew up in Toronto said he doesn’t even know the 46 year old Sala. He took a DNA test which proved he is not related to any of the children, but Sala dragged the case back to court to contest the results. Sala also claims that the actor used hypnosis to tamper with the results of the DNA test that proved he was not the father of her grown-up children.
But Judge Fred Graham ruled in Reeves’ favor recently by throwing the case out, telling the court, “The applicant’s evidence is so incredible that it is not capable of acceptance by any reasonable trier of fact. A trial in this case would be a waste of limited judicial resources.

“It is evident that she (Sala) believes her allegations even though they are patently unbelievable to an objective observer.”

Sala was ordered to pay Reeves $15,000 for the legal bills the case has incurred.
