Arnold Schwarzenegger has cut off financial support to his bastard child, Joseph Baena
My first thoughts are why do some very rich people cut financial support to their kids, but then I remind myself most parents aren’t supporting their children much once they turn 18, yet alone post-college. Why should rich people have to keep their kids on the payroll?
But then I also think about how his kids with Maria Shriver have trust funds and live off daddy and mommy, so why shouldn’t Joseph get a trust fund?
Most rich parents have their kids set up for life. Then there are the rare ones who cut off ties to their kids. Joseph at least can use his father to break into the business if he wants (which he has to an extent, with his physique modeling career and DWTS).

Possible responses: He's an adult.
I don't care.
It's none of my business.
The kid will be living off his resemblance to his father for the rest of his life. Per Google, the son is in the news every two weeks trading out of his familial connection.
The whole thing is disgusting but his skeletal ex knew what she was signing up for.. J

His parents are a couple of whores so he should get a trust fund if his half siblings are getting one. He grew up poor without a Dad and then gets blindsided by his cunt mother that he DOES have a dad who is also a cunt. At the very least Pappy can pay for his therapy.

if you're willing to live in isolation and otherwise on the downlow, it's no big deal.
but if and when something does happen, the media knows no bounds... have no qualms about harassing you at school in the middle of class, at work in the middle of a fire... of harassing you and everyone around you until they get what they want. Or something as satisfying as dragging you down as well.
it doesn't matter if you're not known.
A.S. opened pandoras box when for optics, he decided to play daddy...
if he was just a deadbeat dad, not as big of a deal
but he was a politician and a celebrity, a public figure, so, he's forever scarred this kids' life with that. the kid inherits all his baggage, too, and we've seen how many people would have no qualms hunting him down in the name of politics either. from Q to resyst.

I don't disagree that cutting off a kid after paying for college promotes self-sufficiency and independence.
However, before we can judge whether this particular case makes sense, I would need to know whether Arnold cut off his other kids with Shriver.
Also, his other kids benefitted from his wealth their entire lives. Is it truly "fair" if the other kids got the benefits of a better education and more stable lives.

At 25, he should be supporting himself. Who cares what his half-siblings are getting (trust funds, etc,) ? He has a different pair of parents then they do.
We should be asking how much his mother is pitching in to support him at 25.
|by Anonymous||reply 13||January 27, 2023 3:38 PM
This is all bullshit. The stories of Arnold cutting this kid off financially all came as the kid is starting his real estate career and come from the kid. This is just PR so that people will use him as an agent. He, probably correctly, assumes that presenting himself as a go-getter who supports himself is the best way to gain listings.
It’s also probably a result of a legal case against Baena in which he’s being sued for over a million dollars for hitting and seriously injuring someone last year in a car accident. The first stories of Arnold cutting Joseph off appeared two days after stories of the car accident were reported.

It matters if Arnold is the source of ongoing financial support or trust funds.
If all the money going to support the kids is coming from Maria - agreed, doesn't matter.
However, children should be treated equitably (not equally). If he's funding their dissolute lives while not funding this guy's, that's not right.

R15 You may be on to something with the lawsuit and/or the publicity to jumpstart Baena's career.

I don't think this story is true.
I think Arnold gave money to the boy's mother when he was a child so that he could have a good life growing up. And didn't Arnold pay for him to go to college? And Arnold has helped him launch his own bodybuilding career.
There's not much more Arnold can do except maybe buy him a house. (The cost of a house would probably be a drop in the bucket for Arnold.).
This story was one of the most fascinating of the past decade. Who knew that Arnold and his handy housekeeper would produce a kid who was smart enough to be valedictorian of his high school and go to Pepperdine. Seems like he's smarter and more capable than his spoiled half-siblings. The oldest Shriver-Schwarz has a career as an author. (Her book on forgiveness came out after the scandal broke.). Now she's famous for marrying religious nutcase actor Chris Pratt. I wonder if she's still a Democrat like the other Kennedy family members. Patrick is still trying to be an actor. (Being a nepobaby hasn't helped him much so far.) Chris recently lost a lot of weight; I wonder what he studied in college.

The DL stance on parents supporting kids into adulthood and inheritance is weird. In a million years I would never expect my parents to support me financially. It would be nice if they do but if not, so what, it's my job.
The idea that it's "unfair" is ludicrous. It's unfair that hot young gay men get more attention and forgiveness than ugly ones. It's unfair that this kid is richer than me and all he had to do was be born. Life is unfair.
He isn't entitled to the same lifestyle because he was born to a different set of parents and in different circumstances. His mother should not have opened her legs to a man who didn't take her seriously, if she wanted her kid to have the same privileges as his other children. Having a child by a man married to another person does not guarantee anything, nor should it.

r11 it's not that he owes money to his child but rather it's his responsibility to see that they are protected even through their adulthood. It can just as easily backfire on him, so it's about protecting his interests. But the majority that will seek out this young man will do so because of A.S. and potentially as a means to get to A.S. or what they believe A.S. represents.
This lad's life will forever be centered around being the bastard spawn of a celebrity, former politician...

If your child is a student you can claim him as a dependent on your taxes until he is 24. It seems obvious that a person can't suddenly be self-supporting if they've been sitting in a classroom all their life. If I had a kid who did well in school and graduated college I would let him live at home until he got a job and saved money for a deposit on an apartment. I'm sure the kid would want to become self-supporting asap.

Especially if the married man (cause the woman has no fortune herself, do they ever?) finances a child past young adulthood, one borne out of the fucking. Can't even call it an affair since he basically just banged her til he got bored.
If this young man needs parental guidance he best look outside his own family, he's not getting it from Arnie and the maid. He won't separate though, the association is too beneficial.

Daddy paid child support as well as buying his mother a house and providing her with financial support. He also paid for his son’s college education at Pepperdine. After graduation the kid announced he wanted to be an actor and he did not set the world on fire. He then thrashed around for a while and is now selling real estate. If Daddy had continued to support him, it is doubtful he would be working. I’m sure the money would be provided in an emergency, but enabling someone to live like Tori Spelling does them no favors. I have no idea about the financial situation of the “legitimate “ children, but I hope they are also being encouraged to be productive. The Kennedys were once among the richest families in America. But after 3 or 4 generations of spawning like rabbits and living off the trusts and not recharging the well, I understand they are pretty tapped out. Except for Caroline of course!

Our family was nearly destroyed by my father's outside child. Dad impregnated a woman two weeks before he proposed to my mother. She took my dad to court and even had him arrested several times for child support. My dad's fault, really. My mother should have never married him. He turned out to be a moody drunk anyway. Mom was afraid of being an old-maid. My half-sister's mother was an absolute cunt who had two more out of wedlock children with married men or men who were seriously involved with someone else.
My mother tried to be nice to my half-sister, but her mother had poisoned her against my mother AND us. So it's hard for me to have any empathy for Joseph or his whore mother.

r87 a fairly good example is the number of hollywood divorces during the height of their fame and the inability to pay child support/alimony when their star capital fades. Dave Foley was one of the more widely spoken about.

r27 Sure it is. celebrity (or infamy) should be akin the presidency with security available for as long as it's recognized.
The fact remains any one can attempt to use this kid as extortion... kidnapping (or terror) of celeb family members is common among other parts of the world. So, the natural expectation is for said celebrities to provide support, at least in that form (security) or do their best to keep their family anonymous.

Good for Arnold (and Joseph if true) I don't see this being reported by any other source. If it has, and I missed it, my point still stands.
Joseph already is a real estate agent. He is doing fine on his own. I'm sure there is some kind of inheritance set aside for when Arnold pops his clogs. They seem the closest out of all of Arnold's kids. I think that kind of quality time is better than some fucking trust fund. He's a good kid. Arnold isn't going to let him be spoiled like his sprog with Maria.

How weird it must be for Maria that the bastard child is the most famous and traditionally handsome of Arnold's kids and Arnold's favorite, as well as the media's favorite. Really goes to show "good breeding" means nothing. The Kennedy genes couldn't compare to the housekeeper's genes.

I wonder why Arnold decided to cheat with the housekeeper? She wasn't that attractive or interesting. I bet he always had a complex of inferiority with the Kennedys and never could feel comfortable or equal to Maria so never had satisfying sex with Maria. With the maid, he didn't feel inferior.
|by Anonymous||reply 107||January 30, 2023 7:41 AM
R107 You're saying the housekeeper wasn't worthy of being fucked at least once and I think that's ridiculous. People can have sex appeal even if they're not conventionally attractive. Arnold obviously found her hot in some way. I doubt Arnold Schwarzenegger, an Austrian hick who turned himself into an iconic movie star, felt inferior to that bunch of do-nothing WASPS. You seriously have to wonder why someone would cheat on their spouse? Jesus Christ.

r106 the boy is hardly a head turner. I still think Patrick is more attractive, but I'm starting to think that Arnolds country bumpkin Austrian genes simply don't mix well with others. Patrick used to be cute but the older he gets the more I see how hard Arnolds genes seem to want to fight any other gene pool it touches.
Both boys are handsome enough, though not striking.
Patrick needs to fire his stylist and makeup artist for letting him walk onto a red carpet looking like a low grade drug dealer if not addict.

I'm just gonna say that it's weird as fuck to me that that Shriver and the kids are still very close to Arnold after the whole love child thing but they won't acknowledge the love child. I suppose uts their right but from what I understand was Maria had no idea initially and took the kid in at first thinking it was just the maid's child with someone else. Am I remember it right? Joseph wasn't a stranger to them because his mother worked for the household for very long time i believe, even after her affair with Arnold. He was invited to birthday parties and other events as well if i recall, until rhe bomb dropped that Arnie was rhe daddy. And now only Arnold will acknowledge him which I think is cold as fuck, its not as if they never knew him, they just didn't how well so to speak. But Maria could have been that dumb,she married a major Hollywood star with an equal ego, she could not have been that naive. Plus the resemblance. If she saw the kid in person it didn't occur to her at all?

r113 by all accounts Arnold was a good father. It was easy to judge him when it happened but a bit of perspective probably help them move past it a bit. My dad cheated on my mom leading to a divorce. I was upset but after a few years you sort of have to compartmentalize. A good mother wont let grown folks decisions taint a parent child relationship.
Oh and Arnold is the wealthier parent. There is no way I'd turn my back to my millionaire daddy unless he was beating the shit out of my mother, which is not the case with Arnold and Shriver. The Trump years also gave Arnold a bit of a social comeback, so the old man has a lot going for himself right now.

R14 is right. This whole publicly announced financial distancing is simply because of an accident Joseph had last year. Arnold's company was dragged into the lawsuit, yada, yada. I'm sure AS's lawyer told him to release this statement.
As for the estrangement between Joseph and Maria, I'm a bit surprised. She knew the kid for years. His situation is not his fault. She's well known for her Catholic faith, so what gives? What happened to turning the other cheek? I thought that she would come around eventually but I guess not. She didn't have to be a second mother to him but her attitude seems pretty cold. And her children took their cues from her, I'm assuming. Another phony Catholic.

R120 Like other's have said its not the kid's fault for being born, although I understand icing out the lying cunt who cheated with my husband. But she forgave Arnold because she and the kids attended his 50th birthday party and posted pics but of course Joseph wasn't invited. Weird how she can forgive the cheating ex husband but not a kid who didn't ask to be here. Perhaps she's embarrassed that it all went down under her roof and she didn't know what the fuck was going on in her own house? Plus the resemblance was striking, she's either incredibly dumb or she didn't think Arnold woukd fuck someone like Joseph's mother until she found out otherwise.

"As for the estrangement between Joseph and Maria, I'm a bit surprised. She knew the kid for years. His situation is not his fault."
We don't know about their relationship, all we know is that Joseph, Maria, and the legitimate Schwarzenegger kids aren't making public shows of being a loving family. Maybe the two families have divided into armed camps, maybe they get along and want some privacy. We just don't know, so please stop making assumptions.
Anyway, a person is under no obligation to their ex-spouse's bastard other than to refrain from blaming them from a situation they didn't create, and to refrain from creating alienation between the half-siblings. But the fact is that all five of the Schwarzenegger kids are adults and she doesn't control their emotional lives, which really means that Joseph isn't her problem, unless he's making himself her problem. If all is well then then it's okay for her to be hands-off and to let her kids make up their own minds about the half-sibling relationship, and if he's trying to cut her kids out of the will or something then it's a different story.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a known pussy hound for decades. Yet, by all accounts, Maria had no idea he was cheating on her. How does that even happen?
|by Anonymous||reply 135||January 30, 2023 10:50 PM
I bet she knew about the girlfriends and starlets, and a lot of people who marry sluts know, but never say anything in public to save face. They've married a ho for reasons of their own, they knew there would be a downside, and they don't want to talk about it with bitches like us.
So she was probably willing to accept a certain number of girlfriends and starlets as long as they kept their distance, but screwing the chonky maid in her own bed, and bringing the bastard child into her house? That was not only a violation of whatever deal was keeping the marriage together, it was just plain squicky, the act of someone who wasn't just a total pig, but who actively enjoyed deceiving their spouse.

Maria probably hand-picked Joseph's mother to be the family maid because she was so ugly Maria thought Arnold wouldn't touch her. What Maria didn't know is that straight men are total pigs who will stick their dick in any warm hole if they're horny enough.
I've seen it firsthand when I was in college, in bars/clubs etc. Attractive straight guys going home with fuggo chicks just because they were horny and wanted to get off.

Oh for fuck's sake, R146, "WASP" means "white Anglo-Saxon protestant", it doesn't mean rich, upper-crust, old money, or New England-associated! And the Kennedys are neither Anglo-Saxon nor protestant, so you used the term incorrectly and that's that.

Are Austrians considered Anglo-Saxons?
I know the Angles and Saxons originally came from what's now Germany, Netherlands, well, somewhere in northern Europe, but I thought the term generally menat English people - or at least the British Isles, other than Ireland.
[realizing I may have gotten lost somewhere in their weird conversation]
I did find this definition and I'd definitely say that Arnold doesn't fit it: Anglo-Saxons were migrants from northern Europe who settled in England in the fifth and sixth centuries
