Frank and Jamie McCourt
L.A. Dodgers owner and former Boston real estate developer Frank McCourt has been ordered to pay his estranged wife $637,159 a month in temporary spousal support, according to the L.A. Times. The amount approved by Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner Scott Gordon is slightly less than the $988,845 that Jamie McCourt requested. Her lawyers said $568,829 of the total is needed just to pay the costs, including mortgages, of seven homes and an eighth piece of property in Mexico that are listed in her name. The commissioner ordered Jamie McCourt to sell the property in Cabo San Lucas. According to the Times, Frank's lawyer Sorrell Trope, whose high-profile clients include Tiger Woods's wife Elin Nordegren, told the court the Frank is living at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills and has an annual income of just $5 million. He offered Jamie $150,000 a month in support and said the Dodgers franchise is not Frank's "personal piggy bank." Read more about the McCourts and the divorce here.
