AceShowbiz - Joseph Baena and his half-brother Patrick Schwarzenegger attended Coachella separately over the weekend. The love child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the 25-year-old actor/model were not spotted hanging out together while they both stepped out for day 1 of the annual music festival, Saturday, April 13.
Joseph was pictured arriving with his new girlfriend Nicky Dodaj and some male pals. He rocked a white Budweiser T-shirt with a pair of cuffed dark jeans and matching black-and-white sneakers. He accessorized with a red-and-white scarf.
His girlfriend Nicky also kept things casual yet stylish in a black crop top and a pair of boot cut jeans with white printed flame design. She teamed the outfit with black shoes, while she carried around a pink bunny.
Joseph appeared to have a lot of fun at the festival. He posted on Instagram a picture of him showing a playful pose with his friends. The 21-year-old also posed for a photo with his girlfriend, putting his face close to hers as if he's going to kiss Nicky.
Patrick, meanwhile, hung out with his own group. The son of Arnold and Maria Shriver sported a simple white T-shirt with a pair of flamboyant floral pants to keep with the festival's spirit. He also wore a white round hat, white sneakers and orange-framed sunglasses. The "Midnight Sun" star was all smiles as he held a glass of drink and chatted with friends.
The half-brothers' separate outings came several days after Patrick's elder sister Katherine Schwarzenegger was slammed for leaving out Joseph from her sibling tribute post on Instagram. On National Siblings Day, Wednesday, April 10, the fiancee of Chris Pratt shared pictures of her with sister Christina, 27, and brothers Patrick and Christopher, 21, while writing in the caption, "I LOVE THEM SO MUCH."
Many took to the comment section to criticize the 29-year-old author for not including her half-brother, whom Arnold kept secret for many years after an affair with the family's former housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena. One wrote, "It is unfortunate that you post a pic that that doesn't include all your siblings. Definitely will be unfollowing you now. I thought you were loving and forgiving."
Another commented, "All hypocrites. They preach all this love, happiness, forgiveness, acceptance crap but yet they never ever acknowledge their youngest brother! It's not his fault, he didn't ask to be born but he's here. And if you notice, Joseph always liked all of their photos and follows them. But they always like most of Arnold's photos except the ones with Joe in them."
To the second comment, Katherine responded, "@rosa_hdz_fashionista saw in your profile it says 'god always'. Just wanted to remind you of Gods presence in all of our lives and even in yours as you come spreading hurtful words and judgement. He does not judge you or any of us. I am praying for you and sending you love not because what you said is okay, but because i believe you need love to heal whatever is causing you to post comments like this. god bless you!"
