Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt claims that his estranged wife, Jamie McCourt, has been having an affair with her personal driver, Jeff Fuller.
Why should we care about a Jamie McCourt-Jeff Fuller affair, you ask? Well here's where it gets more interesting than your average cheating scandal.
Frank McCourt fired his wife as the CEO of the Dodgers last week when the team was eliminated from the MLB playoffs by the Philadelphia Phillies.
Jamie McCourt is suing Frank, seeking reinstatement as the team's CEO as well as $321,000 a month in spousal support. Yes, that's per month.
If she is not reinstated, she wants $488,000 per month. She is also suing him for divorce. Minor detail. Anyway, she issued a statement saying:
"Frank has no right to purport to terminate me. We are co-owners of the Dodgers."
"Not only has Frank publicly held us out as co-owners of the franchise, he has also admitted this fact in front of our estate planning counsel."
On top of cheating, Frank McCourt also claims estranged wife Jamie McCourt went to France for two weeks and billed the Dodgers for the trip as a "business expense."
Frank McCourt counters that she is not a co-owner but just his employee - oh, and that she was a party to an affair with her bodyguard, Jeff Fuller.
Who knows if that's true, but that's part of what led to her firing, Frank apparently said. Well, that coupled with that she "undermined the chain of command by not reporting directly to him," according to court filings.
These two seem ready to divulge every detail about the other, and we can only imagine what will happen next. But the battle took another turn when Jamie's attorney said she is lining up financing for a bid to buy out her husband.
"Whatever it takes to buy Frank McCourt out, she's got," attorney Bert Fields said.
Yet Frank McCourt has no intention of selling the Dodgers, his lawyer countered.
"Congratulations to her for being a prospective buyer," Marshall Grossman replied. "There is no seller. Perhaps she could explore some other sport."
Jamie McCourt has neither confirmed nor denied the affair with Jeff Fuller. But with a $1 billion franchise potentially on the line, it could prove costly.
