Without a prenup, Arnold Schwarzenegger may have to pay Maria Shiver some major bucks â€¦ if they decide to divorce.
In fact, Shriver and Schwarzenegger's split could be the most expensive in Hollywood history.
The fact that the ex-governor fathered a love child with his housemaid during the marriage could hit the actor's pocket really hard. Under California law, if the prenup does not stand up, the couple would have to split their net worth evenly.
Although no divorce plans have been announced, Shriver isn't wasting any time. The ex NBC news anchor has already hired one of Hollywood's top divorce lawyers, Laura Wasser.
