Arnold Schwarzenegger's mistress and love child hid out in a small Texas town as news of their secret life was exposed, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
As we first reported, Mildred Baena, known to friends as Patty, was last spotted at her upscale Bakersfield, Calif. home on May 18. She fled just days before details of her scandalous affair with the former California Governor broke.
Multiple sources have confirmed to RadarOnline.com that Baena and her 13-year-old son managed to escape the public glare in a small rural town outside Dallas.
"They visited a family friend," said one source.
According to another insider, "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."
Baena still hasn't returned home and deliberately missed one of her son's key school events.
As Inside Edition first revealed, Schwarzenegger's secret son skipped his middle school graduation on Friday, June 3, due to Mildred's effort to protect him from public exposure.
The boy's name was listed in the program but it was never called out from the stage during the ceremony.
