Frank McCourt: Pay for divorce yourself, Jamie

March 9, 2010 |  5:06 pm

Frank Frank McCourt today asked a court to deny any temporary spousal support to his estranged wife, arguing that Jamie McCourt could more than maintain her lifestyle and cover the costs of the couple's divorce proceedings by renting or selling six largely unused residential properties as well as tapping $11 million in liquid assets.

Jamie McCourt has asked the court to order Frank to pay almost $1 million per monthin temporary support and $9 million in fees for attorneys and accountants. In today's filing, Frank McCourt calls those fee amounts unreasonably high.

A hearing on spousal support is set to start March 29. More to come later at
