L.A. Dodgers Wife: Frank McCourt Committed Fraud

8/19/2010 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fired Los Angeles Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt claims Frank McCourt and his lawyer, Lawrence Silverstein, fraudulently altered documents in an effort to strip her of the ownership of the team ... this according to new court documents obtained by TMZ.

Frank claims in 2004, when they bought the Dodgers, Jamie signed over complete ownership of the team to him.  In their bitter divorce case, Frank has submitted an agreement signed by Jamie, which includes an "Exhibit" that gives him complete ownership of the Dodgers.

But in new legal papers filed today by Dennis Wasser, Jamie's lawyer ... Wasser claims there was another "Exhibit" that was the final word on ownership of the Dodgers, which preserved Jamie's rights to the team. 

Wasser now says, after the document was signed, Frank and his lawyer pulled a switcheroo, by substituting the old "Exhibit" for the new one -- thereby cutting Jamie out. 

Wasser says in his new legal docs ... Jamie is the victim of a "fraudulently altered document."

This man has always come across as slippery and you hire in your own image making his lawyer have the same attributes.

As for all these stupid posters calling his wife a ho and goldigger, SHE WAS MARRIED TO HIM OVER 30 YEARS. The average IQ of some of these threads is 0. Pretty scary.

Irrelevant, is was HIS FAMILY'S money that bought the Dodgers. She's just all sour grapes over the fact that her real-estate holdings she traded in lieu of CA equal property rights aren't worth **** anymore.
