Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits Past Affair With Brigitte Nielsen In New Memoir


Adelle Platon / October 1, 2012

It seems the Terminator has always been a lady’s man.

According to Fox News, Arnold Schwarzenegger allegedly had an affair with actress and “Red Sonja” co-star Brigitte Nielsen in the ’80s while he was dating and living with ex-wife Maria Shriver. He says the two were not engaged at the time.

The California governor writes in his new memoir “Total Recall” out today (Oct. 1) that he and Nielsen did indeed have a “hot affair,” but he knew it wouldn’t last. Their “fling” only made him realize that he wanted to marry Shriver.

He wasn’t the only one to settle with another. Nielsen soon married action star Sylvester Stallone.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver divorced this past year after details of his long-time affair during their 25 years of marriage were uncovered.
