Maria Shriver has hired a high-profile celebrity divorce attorney after learning of her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret love-child. Gigi Jeffers, also known as Gigi Goyette, with whom we recently discovered Schwarzenegger had a long-running extra-marital affair, has also hired a lawyer. The reason has not yet been made public but it can only mean more trouble for Schwarzenegger.
Shriver, California’s former first lady, is now being represented by divorce lawyer to the stars, Laura Wasser. She has represented stars such as Angelina Jolie, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder and Britney Spears.
A source close to Maria Shriver said that she had not yet decided whether to formalize a divorce, but Wasser was reportedly hired before the news of Schwarzenegger’s affair and love child went public.
As previously reported, Shriver (55) split from her husband, the actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (63) after he admitted fathering a child with another woman.
We now know that the woman is Mildred “Patty” Baena, a housekeeper for the family for 25 years. She and Schwarzenegger have a 14-year-old boy together. The “Terminator” star has paid maintenance throughout the boy’s life.
But Wasser is not the only lawyer on Schwarzenegger’s back. Gigi Jeffers has engaged famed Hollywood lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her against the Hollywood star.
Goyette and Schwarzenegger had a brief fling with Schwarzenegger in 1975 when she was a 16-year-old child actress on “Little House on the Prairie.” They reconnected in the late 1980s, she said, and carried on a once a year affair, usually at an Ohio annual fitness convention he hosted.
On August 11, 2005, The Los Angeles Times reported that two days after Schwarzenegger announced his campaign for governor in August 2003, American Media had paid Gigi $20,000 to keep silent about her relationship with him. The firm also paid Gigi’s close friend, Judy Mora, $1,000 not to discuss the matter with reporters, the Times reported.
Why do you think Gigi has a lawyer after Schwarzenegger? Wasn’t it just simply an affair?
