The 50 Lamest Celebrity Couples of All Time

46. Frank and Jamie McCourt

Couple Nickname: None
Dated Between: 1979 - 2009

As far as divorces go, the one between L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his ex-wife Jamie was one of the messiest. When the couple decided to call it quits after 30 years of marriage, a judge ruled that the post-nuptial marriage agreement the two had signed which was to ensure Frank would retain ownership of the Dodgers was invalid, and a lengthy court process to determine just how much stake Jamie, then Dodgers CEO, would retain in the team.

Legal proceedings carried on for two years as both sides fought, and for a while there, it was looking like the whole saga was going to end just like the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode that poked fun at it did.

In the end, though, the two settled on an outcome that left Jamie with no stake in the ownership of the Dodgers and $131 million, only 7% of assets accrued from the team. Unsurprisingly, their divorce is considered one of the most expensive, and nastiest in history.
