MALIBU, CALIF. (AP) - The eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver says she fled to London after her parents separated, in part to escape a storm of unwanted attention.

Katherine Schwarzenegger tells Harper’s Bazaar magazine ( https://bit.ly/nQeBrc) she wanted to “go away and realize that it’s not as big a deal in other places.”

Shriver and the former Republican governor are in the midst of a divorce, after Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed in May he fathered an out-of-wedlock child with a former housekeeper.

Their 21-year-old daughter never mentions her now-teenaged half-brother in the interview, while discussing what she calls “definitely a difficult time.”

She says she tries “not to care about what other people … think,” but adds she’s been consoled by Twitter messages from supporters.

She tells the magazine, “I’ve always been way closer to my mom.”
