Arnold Claims He Never Paid The Help To Keep Quiet About Lovechild
His new memoir sees him come clean about fathering a lovechild with his housekeeper Mildred Baena. And in a candid interview with 60 Minutes which aired on Sunday, Arnold Schwarzenegger insists he never paid her to keep quiet.
When asked if he ever gave Baena hush money, the star told reporter Leslie Stahl: ‘I don’t think that Mildred was at all into talking. Mildred is a good person. She was not out to get me or to take advantage.’
The former governor of California revealed that he never spoke to the housekeeper about the fact that he was the father of her son Joseph.
Instead, he gave her money to provide for the boy, who is now aged 15, when he realized Joseph bore a resemblance to him.
“It just appeared to me there was something off, that he started looking like me,” said Schwarzenegger. “So that’s when I kind of got it, it was never discussed. But, I mean, I put the things together here.”
It’s somewhat respectable that Arnold came clean about fathering a love child with a his former housekeeper, but I still have my doubts! If I was Arnold’s housekeeper/baby mamma, I’d be milking him for every dollar he has to protect his image in Hollywood.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a small little fortune saved up herself. Although we won’t ever know the actual truth, this issue isn’t serious enough for us dig further into. Don’t worry Arnold, we all still love you!
