Dodgers Owner -- Cold as Ice

10/24/2009 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a reason Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt bleeds Dodger blue -- judging from the way he fired his wife of 30 years ... his blood is colder than ice.



TMZ obtained the "Notice of Termination" Frank MAILED to his soon-to-be-ex wife Jamie -- who was fired from her job as co-CEO of the team the day before the Dodgers were eliminated from the playoffs. Mind you, this letter was sent just 2 weeks before the couple's 30th wedding anniversary.

The letter begins, "Dear Jamie -- This is to inform you that your employment with and positions as Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairperson of Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, as well as any and all of the positions that you hold ... are hereby terminated effective immediately."

Though hard to believe, it gets even colder:

"Because your employment is held at-will, the Organization is not required to have cause to terminate your employment and may do so for any reason or no reason at all.

However, 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
.
"

And for good measure, we've also learned Frank locked Jamie out of her office today. We're told Jamie called her assistant and asked her to open the office door -- she was informed her key no longer worked.

Nice touch Frank.

FRANK earned ALL the money over 30 years.
FRANK gave her the position so she could have something to do other than her hair, nails and waxing.
FRANK is reponsible to the other minority owners and members of the board.
FRANK is following the advice of counsel.
FRANK is following typical protocol in these types of things.
FRANK is not accused of any philandering, let's see what comes out about her.
FRANK will end up giving her a fortune cuz God forbid she would actually have to work for a living.

And he's the bad guy? Wake up TMZ.

Dude, you can't treat employees OR a wife in that manner. That was an emotional termination letter you wrote her and I'm afraid ol' buddy, it is going to come back and bite you on the AZZ!

Who in the world is your advisor???

It's not cold, sounds like she was not doing her job. Way to go. No need to have other employees there doing their job and because she is married to the boss does not mean she can do what she wants.

And then he's going to wonder why she does her best to take him for all he's worth in the divorce settlement. Plus, since this is allegedly a "professional, business" decision - wouldn't it have been more appropriate for the letter to be addressed to "Ms. McCourt" and not just "Jamie"? Karma is a b***h, Frank baby.

I hate it when people divorce and try to turn the team against the other owner . The team shouldn't be caught in the middle. They should both go to counseling and learn how to get along for the sake of the team.
