It’s not every day you hear that a Los Angeles Dodgers husband fires wife. And no, it is not what you think. Read all about the story of Jamie McCourt. See her photos and video too.
Unfortunately this story is not one of those player wife swapping things which the major league swingers like to do when their wives don’t perform well in bed. Instead, this is the owner Frank McCourt fed up with his wife’s performance in the front office.
We might add that Jamie McCourt is separated from her charitable husband which may give him all the reason to assess her output more closely. The couple became recently estranged so her lucrative job as Dodgers CEO came under very close scrutiny indeed.
He sent her a Dear Jamie love letter which includes this romantic prose:
Your actions, including, but not limited to, your insubordination, non-responsiveness, failure to follow procedures, and inappropriate behavior with regard to a direct subordinate, have made this decision necessary.
A long legal battle is brewing. California is home to the Dodgers, and California happens to be a community property state. Frank McCourt may think he owns the Dodgers, but Jamie McCourt may have a reasonable claim to 50% as well as co-owner. She may have just as much right to fire his ass!
Especially so considering they have been married for 30 years, separating only last week. The Jamie McCourt biography tidbits include that she was born in Baltimore, Maryland, majored in French language at Georgetown, and holds a law degree and an MBA from MIT. This woman is not chopped liver. The couple have four sons including Drew who also happens to work in the Dodgers front office.
For those not following baseball as closely as muah, Jamie McCourt is probably doing a fantastic job as CEO and Dodgers wife. The Dodgers have made the playoffs the last two years after a long period of mostly mediocrity. Score one for the wife.
Dodgers Husband fires wife as CEO and owner? Fire him. See pictures of Jamie McCourt and a cool video below.
