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?"

T - you are a moron. they were his accountants. his is entitled to all of his financial information. go read their "protective order" - it's a stall tactic like the previous guy said. would you allow your accountant to decide what information of yours you see? it's illegal and unethical. Hello, Bernie Madoff?!? Oh, and she did fire all her former people. Her lawyer admitted it! try Google something before you post. Might make it seem like you actually know what you are talking about.

accountants hiding paperwork is no joke. my ex-husband and his accountant did the exact same thing and hid money away in secret accounts. it took me 3 years to find everything and i lost my house in the process.

@jamie You check your facts you idiot. Kate moved on up to a bigger agency. It is what you do when you become a bigger star. CAA is the top talent agency. She is still friends with her former manager b/c there is pics of them having lunch like two wks ago.

who cares about this divorce? we should really be talking about that HIDEOUS Orange jumpsuit she wore to the GLAAD awards! What happened to her? She used to be so sexy and stylish, now she looks like Gumby's orange, tranny sister!!! Maybe Kate should spend less money on lawyers and upgrade her stylist!!!

T - when you "move up to a bigger agency" that means you fire the people you were with. duh. HER LAWYER ADMITTED IT. She fired her lawyer, her agents, and her manager, not just her agents. These were the very people who got her to where she is! How would you like to work hard for someone and then be treated like this? Stop being an apologist for this woman. She is totally ungrateful and doesn't even want to pay her commissions.

@Jamie (AKA Alex Young or his one little friend) Again get your facts straight you idiot. All celebs do it when they move on up. It is business. Like when you get a promotion you leave people behind. There was OBVIOUSLY no hard feelings b/c she was hanging out with her former manager. Also if you check your facts you idiot, Kate is accusing the agency of fraud and many other things. So you are slandering her name.

This is what happens when you rush into a marriage before getting to know the other person. I hope they both learnt their lesson.

How about posting his opposition papers for us to see TMZ?
