Bookworm Patrick Schwarzenegger buries himself in studies amidst his parents separation

Bookworm: Patrick Schwarzenegger spotted with his Algebra book at the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles

Patrick Schwarzenegger has been burying himself in school work to keep his mind off his parents’ separation and Algebra appears to be on the top of his agenda.

The 17-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver was spotted with an Algebra text book at the Brentwood Country Mark in Los Angeles.

He clung onto the mathematics book, along with a bottle of water while sucking on a lollipop as she walked back to his car.

Patrick has admitted that he’s on his mother’s side throughout the scandal, but still loves his father.

After finding out that Arnie fathered a secret love-child with their housekeeper of 20 years, Mildred ‘Patty’ Baena, Patrick changed his last name from Schwarzenegger to Shriver on Twitter.

But he told in Beverly Hills of his father: ‘I love him.’

And he tweeted after the scandal broke: ‘Some days you feel like sh**, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet I love my family till death do us part.’

Patrick is one of four children of the couple. He has two sisters, Katherine, 21, and Christina, 19 and one brother Christopher, 12, plus now his half-brother Joseph Baena, 13.

He studies at Brentwood School in Los Angeles and at the age of 16 he founded the company Project 360 – a clothing line that donates 10 per cent of all its sales to a variety of causes.

The teenager is also signed with LA Models and had a small role in the 2006 film The Benchwarmers.

The Schwarzenegger family was shaken to its core this month when the Terminator star’s affair was revealed.

After 25 years of marriage, Maria Shriver is expected to file for divorce and was spotted seeking comfort last week from U2 frontman Bono.

The 51-year-old rocker, who has been married to his wife Alison Hewson since 1982, gave Shriver his words of wisdom over lunch in Beverly Hills.

Maria is expected to officially file for divorce any day now, as allegations of possible more love-children fathered by Schwarzenegger have been rumoured.

The Hollywood actor has also been accused of using taxpayers’ money to cover up multiple affairs which has triggered a criminal investigation.

The National Enquirer reported that the former governor of California used his security detail in keeping details of his liaisons a secret.

But Schwarzenegger’s attorney hit back at the claims made by law enforcement officer William Taylor and said the reports were ‘totally and completely false.’
