LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Maria Shriver filed for divorce Friday from Arnold Schwarzenegger in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The former television journalist and Kennedy family heir filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences. She did not list a date that the couple separated.
The filing comes six weeks after the action star and former governor admitted fathering a child out of wedlock with a member of his household staff.
Shriver's petition seeks joint custody of the couple's sons, ages, 17 and 13.
Schwarzenegger's spokesman Adam Mendelsohn declined comment in an email. Shriver's attorney Laura Wasser did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
