Kate Walsh Dogged By Soon-to-be Ex

4/27/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They were only a married couple for 14 months, but the nasty divorce between Kate Walsh and Alex Young has just gotten uglier.

Kate Walsh, Alex Young

We've obtained legal papers filed last Friday by Young, who claims the accounting firm he and Walsh used has turned on him by refusing to ante up a full accounting of joint assets. But wait till you hear what they are arguing over.

London & Co., the accounting firm, filed legal papers earlier this month, essentially asking a judge to tell Young to get lost. The firm wants a protective order against Young, claiming it has given him all the financial info he needs but he keeps making more demands. Now Young's lawyer is fighting the protective order, claiming London & Co. is acting like a P.R. firm for Walsh and that the protective order reads like a "press release to benefit one client, Ms. Walsh."

Young says a month before they got married back in 2007, they bought a multi-million dollar house together and furnished it with expensive stuff, and London & Co. refuses to give him an accounting. But we know what went down -- fact is, Kate made the lion's share of the down payment and the house has gone down in value since they bought it -- so there are no profits to split. Plus, he walked out on Kate, leaving her with a huge mortgage and all the monthly expenses.

Launch PhotosSo why is Young making such a big stink over assets that are pretty clean? It's a little perplexing. It's not like he needs the dough. We know he makes more than a million bucks a year as a bigwig at FOX. She makes around $3 mil a year on "Private Practice" and other projects.

So let's review. He leaves her, sticks her with the mortgage, he makes a bundle, but he's dragging out the divorce like a remake of "War of the Roses." So, we ask, what's the deal?"

let me get this straight - he wants an accounting of his house and assets? OMG! that is HORRIBLE! this woman sounds like such a shrew. let me guess - she can't stand that he left her and now she wants to make him look bad. Get over yourself, Kate. your show is awful and you should focus your attention on getting a new stylist and a new haircut. maybe that's why he left in such a hurry!

Why would anyone need an accounting firm to tell them what assets are in their own home? Besides, being married for only 14 months a division of assets should be very clear. Maybe he is trying to get out of the joint debt of the house and is trying to use home furnishings as an some sort of bargainig chip. Seems like a real jerk.

the part i love is where TMZ says - "But we know what went down -- fact is..." - I worked in PR in the business for a few years. That means that someone on Kate's team worked overtime with TMZ to spin this. I hope they are worth the money b/c she is looking real bad these days. First firing all her agents and getting sued for not paying them? Now this? Hey TMZ - why don't you report the real story - that this woman is obviously a nightmare diva who thinks she is above everyone else.

QE2 - as someone who went through a divorce recently, you are required to do an accounting of all the assets. That is the law. Would you just walk away from everything? i doubt it. One side can't just hide everything from the other. This sounds like kate ordered her accountants to hide the information from her ex. this woman sounds like the biggest nightmare. I used to like her on Grey's but obviously she has become a different person.

what a double-standard, TMZ! would we even be having a debate if the man was trying to hide the money from the woman? no!! that happens all the time and the guy rightfully gets villified. He sounds like he just wants his money back. Why don't you get on her case like you would if she was a man?

i agree, whitney - TMZ just takes the side of the famous person unless its Britney. they must be on her payroll or something. How would they know where the down payment came from? or that the house has gone down? kate seems to like to tear all these people down to make her look better. there was some post a few weeks ago about tantrums she threw on the set and getting people fired. then her agents. now her ex. she sounds like one angry, bitter woman.

Maybe she is hiding some accounting docs but the ex must be SOOOO NICE that the firm would want a protective order against him.

Divorce drama is always entertaining.

I just reread this - these were HIS accountants and they were hiding joint assets and taking her side?? not a good time to be a sleazy accountant. no wonder they filed the protective order - to hide their dirty work. i would love to be this guy's lawyer. talk about a slam dunk.

The accounting firm is ordering a Protective Order against him you idiots. He is obviously a PSYCHO!

I agree with the guy here. Seems perfectly reasonable that he would want a detailed accounting of the property . The accounting firm's protective order serves two purposes: It makes him look like a psycho, and at the same time stalls his (legitimate) requests. He probably IS leaning on them, but even so, that does not entitle them to a protective order.

The accountanting firm is getting a protective order because Young was harassing them with threatening letters. Walsh did not fire her agents you idiot poster above. She moved on up to a different agency and is still friends with her former manager. Check pics they were seen having lunch together a couple wks ago. Kate Walsh has always been praised by everyone she works with nothing bad has ever been reported on her.
