Dodgers’ Owner and Chief Executive Still Sift Through Divorce

By Sheryl Rentz on November 25, 2009

While questions about the Dodgers’ future still abounds, there is still much uncertainty regarding what will happen for owner Frank McCourt and chief executive Jamie McCourt. According to a latimes.com article, there has been much “buzz” in the media over how Frank allegedly fired Jamie and “branded her with a scarlet letter”. Another big issue in the divorce filings relates to the large annual expenses that Jamie is saying she needs to maintain the lifestyle of a baseball owner. While no one can really blame the questionable ownership of the Dodger franchise for the team’s performance in the National League Championship Series, this separation emphasizes the many challenges a divorce may create.

Similar to the McCourts, some married couples experience long-term tension that is often difficult to hide from close friends and family, and especially children. The couple formally closed the purchase of the Dodgers from News Corp. in January 2004 for approximately $430 million. Although there has been no word on whether the McCourts will sell the franchise as a means of dividing their assets, such an option is one that they may explore. However, based on the report, Frank claims that the Dodgers belong to him and him alone, while Jamie claims that she owns part of the team.

When a couple decides to file for divorce, some of the main legal issues that arise circulate mostly around child custody and finances. According to the article, considering that Jamie and her estranged husband collected “in salary and/or distributions” between $7 million and $8 million a year, division of property and assets, and spousal support may definitely become an issue of concern for both parties.
