MLB: Frank McCourt' wife seeks nearly $1M per month


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES The estranged wife of Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is asking for nearly $1 million per month in temporary support.

The amount was revealed in a court filing unsealed Thursday in which Jamie McCourt's lawyers allege that her husband is trying to mislead the court about his financial resources.

Jamie McCourt, the team's former CEO, initially asked for $488,000 per month when she filed for divorce in October. The revised request asks for nearly $989,000 per month. The amount reflects bills and other records that her lawyers say show the couple averaged $2.3 million per month since they bought the Dodgers in 2004.

The filing also claims Frank McCourt is trying transform the Dodgers into the anchor of a sports business empire that could include cable television channels.
