NFL Sportscaster's Divorce -- You Stray, You Pay

11/3/2009 2:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jim NanceNFL on CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz made one really bad call -- with a 29-year-old woman -- and it set a divorce in play that will cost him nearly a million bucks a year for the rest of his life.

A Connecticut judge ordered the famous announcer to pay his ex-wife $864,000 a year in alimony -- and the only way out is death ... or if his ex-wife remarries.

The judge's decision comes in light of Nantz's admission that he began dating a 29-year-old woman before he ended his 26 year marriage. Smooth...

Nantz also has to pay $1,000 a week in child support for their 15-year-old daughter for the next two years.

Jim's wife also gets the couple's Westport mansion -- no word if he gets to keep the couch he's probably been sleeping on.

Ultimately, the judge made Jim pay so much because he's loaded.

Regardless of what Nantz did, $72,000 a month in alimony is totally ridiculous. Especially when the child support is only $4,000 a month. What TMZ DOESN'T mention is that he ALSO has to pay her $70,000 so she can join the country club of her choice - AND she gets two of their four residences - AND (which I think is the absolute worst) he has to keep her as the beneficiary on his $3,000,000 life insurance policy. That is totally ludicrous. He should at least be able to change the beneficiary to a trust for his daughter, and then to his daughter as an individual once she turns 18.

Message #25: as a matter of fact, men often do get alimony. If the wife is making more money than the husband, she can get tagged for the alimony. That's especially true if the husband has been a "Mr. Mom" - just like a stay-at-home mom, he's entitled to at least transitional support. If my ex-husband had wanted to, he could have requested alimony as I made much more money than him AND had owned our house for many years before I married him. Luckily, he wasn't that bright - so we were able to get the divorce done without a lot of financial aggravation.

hey, you play you pay. probably no prenup. Beside, its not like he 'doesn't' have the money...he just gets to spread it around, like with his wife and side-action honey. Jim you could have been more discreet.
