Arnold To File Revised, More Respectful Divorce Docs

Filed under: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, Celebrity Justice

TMZ has learned … Arnold Schwarzenegger will file a revised response to Maria Shriver‘s divorce petition on Monday … and this one won’t ask the judge to deny her spousal support.


TMZ broke the story … Arnold filed docs earlier this week that not only sought to deny Maria support … he also asked the judge to force Maria to pay her own lawyer’s fees.  That seemed pretty audacious, considering the reason Maria was driven to divorce was because of Arnold’s misdeeds.
But sources connected with Arnold tell TMZ  … although he signed the divorce docs he never read them, partly because he was dealing with a family medical crisis — Christopher’s boogie boarding accident … and partly because he relied on his lawyer.

The unanswered question … Why was Arnold’s response filed this week — when Maria was preoccupied with taking care of her injured son?

We’re told Arnold’s initial response papers triggered a genuine conflict in the divorce.  Hopefully, the revised papers will make things right.



Steve Francis Accused of Sexual Assault

Filed under: Steve Francis, Celebrity Justice, TMZ Sports

Former NBA star Steve Francis is being accused of sexual assaulting a woman in Texas last year … TMZ has learned.


According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Francis allegedly “groped” a 20-year-old woman through her clothing in May 2010 … and the woman immediately went to the cops to file a complaint.

The alleged victim tells TMZ … she is a singer who was signed to Steve’s record label and on the day of the alleged incident, she had met Steve at an office to discuss her contract.

The woman, Shauna Simien, tells us the “groping” while the two were talking outside, when Francis reached down and grabbed her between the legs.

Simien claims she screamed for him to stop — and that’s when a few of her friends, whom she brought along for protection, rushed over to break things up.

Despite the fact Simien filed her police report more than a YEAR ago, law enforcement sources tell TMZ the case is still open and no charges have been filed. Simien says she is frustrated the case has not progressed and is considering a lawsuit against the District Attorney’s office.

We placed several calls to Francis, his record label and his management company — so far, no official comment.

One of the couples from MTV‘s “Teen Mom” started off Season 3 by moving into their 1st apartment together — but TMZ has learned, they’ve already been evicted from the pad … for failing to pay rent!072211_teen_mom_lease_v3_still

19-year-olds Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra — who are best known for giving their daughter Carly up for adoption on the show — singed a lease on an apartment in Marine City, Michigan, in August, 2010. The big move was featured on the MTV show.

But according to court docs — the couple stopped paying their rent in December 2010 … so their landlord gave them an eviction notice — and took them to court!

It didn’t turn out well for the couple — who agreed to give up their $450.00 security deposit, pay an additional $450 in back rent and move the hell out of the building.

No word on where Catelynn and Tyler — who also happen to be step-siblings (!) — plan to live next.
