Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his wife, Jamie, who happens to be the organization’s CEO, are headed for divorce court while in battle over the $722 million team. Frank’s attorney says he is sole ownership of the Dodgers and his wife has no rights team, but Attorney Dennis Wasser says his client, Jamie McCourt owns half of the team, because she is the highest paid female executive, whether there are files to prove it or not. Both attorney are in dispute over millions of dollars while the team are dealing winning another game.
Frank McCourt earned his wealth in the commercial real-estate business in Boston and bought the Dodgers in 2004 for $430 million. They both own two properties in Holmby Hills, Calif., and two in Malibu, valued around a combined $80 million, according to published documents. Public documents show that Jamie is the sole owner of those properties and that Frank has waived any claim to them.
This is very sad the McCourts are fighting over money, instead of fighting for their marriage. I suppose this is what the Bible means by “Money is the root of all evil.” I Timothy 6:7-10. Money was not meant to fight over, it was meant for rich couples to share and if they can no longer have peace, there should be some way to mutually resolve the matter in private.
If they once really vowed to love each other for life, shouldn’t they at least depart as friends and share the $722 million dollars? Our American society are already problematic, because married couples already divorce if they do not have enough money to survive, so the McCourts divorce is based on much more than the issue of money. There is a deeper situation that is going on, we do not know about, and the McCourts battle over money is doing nothing to heal the emotional pain. After over 30 years of marriage why are the McCourts in divorce court?
The McCourts met at Georgetown University and married in 1979. They have 4 grown sons together.
