Frankie Valli

'Jersey Boys' Could Cost Him

Pretty Penny in Divorce

Frankie Valli divorcing Randy Valli
Frankie Valli -- the lead singer of "The Four Seasons" and brainchild behind the musical "Jersey Boys" -- is learning a hard lesson about marrying younger women, because his ex is trying to take him to the cleaners.

Randy Valli -- who was married to Frankie for 27 years -- has filed legal docs, asking the divorce judge for attorney's fees, but what's really interesting is how much money he makes -- and she already gets.

According to legal docs, Frankie is raking in more than $515,000 per month -- presumably a big chunk is from "Jersey Boys." 

But 51-year-old Randy is already getting a big piece of the 77-year-old Frankie.  For starters, she gets $30,000 a month -- $5 grand in spousal support, and $25,000 grand a month in royalties from "Jersey Boys."

And this is interesting ... even though she's pulling in more than a third of a million bucks a year, the docs say she's getting $810 a month in public assistance.  It looks like that money is for a portion of his SSI because she's taking care of their minor children.

Hmmm.... Harvey just announced to the room he's thinkin' of a TMZ musical.

As someone from New Jersey who grew up with his music I always loved the music and lyrics to his songs. One of my bestfriends at the time we were growing up had a song that was written about her. That was pretty cool. Can't think of the title but I remember the words. Carried your books from school playing make believe you were married to me, you were 15 and I was 16 when we came to be. Something like that....

I also knew Frankie's brother but sadly he was a raging alcoholic who couldn't get sober to save his life...
