Washington: It has been confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger`s mistress and love child are hiding in a small Texas town to escape the media glare after the news of their secret life was exposed.
Mildred Baena, known to friends as Patty, was last spotted at her upscale Bakersfield home in California on May 18.
She reportedly fled a few days before details of her scandalous affair with the former California Governor broke out.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Baena and her 13-year-old son managed to escape the public scrutiny in a small rural town outside Dallas.
"They visited a family friend," Radaronline.com quoted a source as saying.
Another insider revealed that "it was Mildred, not Arnold, who made the decision that she should leave California and travel, including, at one point, hiding out in Texas, as details of the scandal unfolded."
According to reports, Baena still hasn’t returned home and deliberately missed one of her son’s key school events.
