Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly made a $65,000 (£40,600) down payment for a home bought by the former housekeeper identified as his alleged mistress - and mother of his lovechild.
The payment covered almost a quarter of the total cost of Mildred Baena's home.
Schwarzenegger stunned Hollywood last week (ends20May11) when he revealed he had fathered a lovechild over a decade ago. Baena has been widely reported as the mother of the 13-year-old boy, but she has yet to confirm the news.
According to loan documents, obtained by Tmz.com, movie star and politician Schwarzenegger made the "gift" house payments in two installments from his own personal bank account last year (10).
The money was used to secure a loan for Baena's home, which has become a major attraction for news crews, photographers and reporters in recent days.
Neighbours insist Baena has not been home for weeks - but they all knew about Schwarzenegger's links to Baena.
One local revealed the woman also has an apartment home in Los Angeles, while another explained a realtor had told him about Baena's links to Schwarzenegger, insisting the home down payment was a thanks to the housekeeper for her years of service.
