It’s the divorce that has Hollywood and sports circles alike buzzing, and up till now, the question has been, is there a pre-nup between LA Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt?
Now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that there is NOT a pre-nup and that the already messy and expensive divorce proceedings are about to get all the more so.
Sources close to the couple tell RadarOnline.com exclusively that the two, who met as college sweethearts and have been married for more than 30 years, and have four grown children together, did not have a pre-nup.
“There is no pre-nup, period,” the insider tells RadarOnline.com.
California law appears to be on Jamie’s side as the golden state is community property 50/50, and that would include the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Frank McCourt has asserted through his lawyer, Marshall Grossman, that he is the sole owner of the team, while Jamie’s attorney, Dennis Wasser, says that simply isn’t so.
Thursday, Frank McCourt fired his estranged wife from her role as CEO of the Dodgers organization.
Wasser tells RadarOnline.com, “Jamie is disappointed and saddened by her termination. As co-owner of the Dodgers, she will address this and all other issues in the courtroom.”
Last week, Marshall Grossman told the L.A. Times, “Frank McCourt is the owner of the team. He has always been the owner of the team. There should be no change at all with respect to anything the public is used to.”
Forbes estimated the value of the Dodgers at around $727 million dollars, and the couple also own four homes. Two are in the swanky Holmby Hills enclave, and the other two are in Malibu.
