LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A new woman has stepped forward claiming Arnold Schwarzenegger had a longtime affair with her that began when she was 16 years old, according to news reports Wednesday.
Gigi Jeffers, also known as Gigi Goyette, has hired high-profile lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her against the Hollywood star and former California governor, Star Magazine reported.
Allred released this statement Wednesday evening:
“I can confirm that I do represent Gigi Goyette. We have no comment at this time and we will also have no comment tomorrow.”
Jeffers told Star Magazine that she met Schwarzenegger in 1975 while she was an actress on “Little House On The Prairie.” She allegedly was just 16 years old when he had sex with her in a hotel room while his wife Maria was in another room on the same floor.
The pair allegedly didn’t meet again until 1989.
This report comes days after Schwarzenegger announced he had an affair with his maid, Mildred Patricia Baena, and fathered a child with her 14 years ago.
Schwarzenegger’s estranged wife, Maria Shriver, issued a statement Tuesday in response to the revelation:
“This is a painful and heartbreaking time,” she said. “As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
