Spousal support debated at McCourt divorce battle

The divorce saga of Frank and Jamie McCourt, owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers, is continuing as a judge has agreed to consider reducing the amount of spousal support paid, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Frank McCourt was previously ordered to pay $225,000 per month in alimony and more than $400,000 a month to maintain the ex-couple’s six homes and one condominium. He argued, however, that he has already paid more than $5 million annually to cover the homes and that his ex-wife should pay the mortgages herself or sell the properties.

Due to the divorce and resulting financial instability, the Los Angeles Dodgers filed for bankruptcy protection in August 2011 and Major League Baseball assumed the club’s day-to-day operations in April of that year.

After going through very public divorces, some celebrities have shied away from other marriages. Eva Longoria, the actress who filed for divorce from basketball star Tony Parker in late 2010, recently told Fox News that she wasn’t sure if she would ever marry again. She has been reportedly dating the brother of actress Penelope Cruz since January 2011.
