TMZ reported, however, that there was an estimated $400M involved.

Sources told the outlet that just about everything was divided down the middle.

Additionally, Arnold and Maria did not have a prenup.

Their marriage breakdown occurred after the love child scandal.


More than a decade ago, news broke that Arnold fathered a child with the family's housekeeper.

Arnold's son's career aspirations are just one of the many things he has in common with his father.

The couple announced their split in May 2011.

They released a joint statement at the time, saying: "This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us.

"After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together.

"At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.

"We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.

"We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public."
