Frank McCourt -- I'm 'Sole Owner' of Dodgers

10/28/2009 1:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Frank McCourt says his estranged wife Jamie McCourt made her bed and doesn't want to sleep in it -- stating in court documents that she's known all along that she is not a co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Frank McCourt

In the documents, filed today by Frank's lawyers, he says he and Jamie signed a marital property agreement in 2004 that spelled out two things: all their residential real estate is her separate property -- while The McCourt Company, Inc., and the Dodgers are his separate property. Frank says Jamie proposed this deal.

In the papers Frank says he "entered into this agreement to honor the request of my wife and ensure that she would have tens of millions of dollars in assets that would be protected from the claims of my creditors."

Basically, the document claims Jamie got what she wanted, and that Frank is "registered with Major League Baseball as the sole owner" of the Dodgers.

Frank goes on to say in the court filing that Jamie wanted a new agreement that would make all their assets, including the Dodgers, community property -- but in May he told Jamie he would not sign that deal.

Spilt CelebritiesThe couple separated in July, which is when -- according to the documents -- Jamie asked Frank to move out of their Malibu home, and asked him to make Jeff Fuller "just her driver."

We're told Jamie and Jeff have been dating since the McCourts split. The Dodgers fired Jeff in mid-October.

Yeah, Frank? Keep thinking you're the sole owner. You live in California.....a community property State. If you're lucky, her lawyer might let you keep third base.

Frank McCourt is disgusting for attempting to PUBLICLY degrade his wife of over 30 years this way. Let's look at David Letterman and his game.

Message to Mr. McCourt: Be a REAL MAN and share 50-50 with your wife. The mother of your 4 sons.

I'm appalled that you would even try to get MORE! It's disgusting.

Eu, Justy... You think she was thinking of her four kids with Frank when she was f-ing her driver in her office? And McCourt seems SPECTACULARLY alright with that - he seems willing to leave her most of their properties, except for the Dodgers, which SHE SIGNED AWAY TO HIM...

Bottom line: Jamie McCourt's a cheating whore, period, and defending her behavior kinda makes you one too, Justy. I pity your husband, if you have one - poor sucker.
