"Entertainment Tonight" aired the second part of its interview with Mildred Patricia Baena's ex-husband Rogelio Baena Wednesday night, despite reports Tuesday that Mildred Baena threatened to sue the celebrity news show for defamation.
In the first part of the interview, which aired Tuesday, Rogelio Baena claimed that he found out that he was not the boy's father just last week, when Mildred was identified as the mother of Schwarzenegger's love child. He reiterated that point Wednesday's night: "She told me that I was the true father," he said.
Rogelio Baena, who separated from Mildred three weeks after the "love child" was born in October 1997, cites her "strong" personality as the catalyst for the split. The couple filed for divorce a decade later, in February 2008: "She is very strong. She is a snake, strong like an anaconda, you know...strong personality" (he now lives in Colombia; Mildred Baena owns a home in Bakersfield, CA).
But according to Rogelio Baena, Schwarzenegger--who admitted to fathering the child in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on May 17--is also at fault.
"He guilty. He guilty because he betray."
Baena told "Entertainment Tonight" that he has a message for the boy, whom he refers to as his "son":
"Forever, I am your father...because I love you, my son."
