Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Old Flight Attendant Files Libel Suit Over Mistaken Paternity

Tammy Tousignant, Arnold’s ex-flight attendant of twelve years, did not have the love-child that ruined the Schwarzenegger marriage, despite claims to the contrary by the Daily Mail, Gawker, and the National Enquirer, and now she wants them to pay. Tousignant has filed a $40 million lawsuit against the publications for defamation; another former Schwarzenegger household staffer has since admitted to the affair. When news of the kid broke in the Los Angeles Times, a post on Gawker (later retracted) used photos of Tousignant and her son Tanner, resurrecting the claim that he was Schwarzenegger’s secret offspring from a 2003 article in the Mail.
