ARNIE’s divorce seems imminent after he was caught “planting a big wet one” on his new lover.
The 66-year-old Austrian actor and former California governor has been separated from his estranged wife Maria Shriver since 2011.
Although court papers have been filed, a final settlement has not yet been reached.
TMZ discounts reports Arnold and Maria may be reconciling, claiming a recent outing between the Terminator star and his rumoured girlfriend Heather Milligan proves the spouses are “on ice”.
The website obtained images showing Arnold “slipping Heather a sloppy goodbye kiss as she got into her car” in Santa Monica following a “romantic dinner” at the Fig restaurant in the Fairmont Hotel Friday night.
Arnold has been linked to Heather for several months and the pair seemed more enamoured than ever as Arnold kept “planting a big wet one” on her face during their date, according to the outlet.
It emerged in 2011 that Arnold fathered a son with his housekeeper Mildred Baena over ten years ago. The revelation prompted his separation from Maria and Arnold wrote candidly about the affair in his memoir Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.
The actor and his wife, who were together 25 years before their split, share four children together.
It is rumoured that although Arnold and Maria are officially not interested in reigniting a romance, they’re still in no rush to finalise their divorce.
TMZ reported earlier this year splitting officially will have "no impact" on their current lifestyles.
"Neither Arnold nor Maria feel any urgency to get a judge to make the divorce official, even though all of the money and custody issues have been worked out," a source told the website.
"They're worth approximately $400 million - which they agree they'll split down the middle - so it's not like they need the divorce to buy a house."
