she said she has a life style that she needs the million. she said she has 7 motgages!


that type of money a month is crazy

I thought her demands were excessive at first. Reading into their lives a little bit, they met as Freshmen in college and were married for 31 years. She was the VP and general counsel at his law firm and was the CEO of the Dodgers. She isn't a gold digger, I think it is safe to say he wouldn't be where he is without her. She deserves half of everything.

Forbes valued the Dodgers at $722 million last year. You take that plus all of their other wealth and you have a huge estate to divide. If he can't come up with the cash then she should be able to be an equal partner in the Dodgers ownership, able to sell her shares or keep them for herself.

I have a hard time feeling pity for him.

I guess she's asking for temporary support. Different scenario. Still, as far as their assets and the team are concerned, she still deserves half.
