Arnold Gets the House, the Rest is Up for Grabs

Filed under: Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Celebrity Divorce, Celebrity Homes, Celebrity Justice

TMZ has learned … Arnold Schwarzenegger will get the family home in Brentwood, CA as part of his divorce settlement with Maria Shriver … but virtually nothing else has been worked out.


We’re told there will be no issue … All of the assets in the marriage are community property, which means Arnold and Maria have a 50/50 interest.  But we’re told Arnold, Maria and their reps are “in the very beginning stages” of deciding who gets what.

As we first reported, there is no prenup.   We’re told when Arnold and Maria married, they had “very little in the way of assets compared to what they have now.”  The combined wealth of the former couple is estimated at around $400 million.

And, as we reported, Maria is in escrow to buy a home valued at around $10 million.  The house is also in Brentwood, approximately 3 miles from the family home.  Maria wanted to be close so the kids could easily go back and forth.

As for the exact percentage of the spoils Arnold and Maria will ultimately walk away with — it hasn’t even been discussed.  “It’s very early in the process” says one source with direct knowledge.



Casey Anthony’s Lawyer: We TOASTED Because …

Casey Anthony‘s defense lawyer tells TMZ … his team popped bubbly and raised their glasses after the not-guilty verdict because “We have a long-standing tradition; we toast to the Constitution.”


TMZ spoke with Cheney Mason — the guy with the beard — who tells us his team decided to hit the Terrace 360 restaurant across the street from the courthouse Tuesday because, “We were celebrating saving Casey Anthony’s life.”

Mason also defended his use of his now infamous middle finger salute
that day — telling us it was directed at a “guy from a radio station
who has been stalking my team for months.”


Cheney says, “He was yelling at the ladies on my team, ‘Are you on your period?’ and he was also calling them ‘baby killers.'”

“This guy was outside and pounding on the glass and I flipped the son-of-a-bitch off, and I’ll do it again!”

Cheney states –  “It was an expression of my first amendment right.”
