'Cops' Creator's Wife

What's She Gonna Do?

She's Gonna Divorce Him

The creator of "Cops" is getting divorced after 40 years of marriage.

John Langley's wife, Maggie, filed divorce docs, citing "irreconcilable differences."

"Cops" went on the air in 1989 and is still running. As for how much Langley is worth -- we're guessing a gazillion dollars.

There is no evidence of a prenup from the documents, so both John and Maggie would split their fortune 50/50.

But Maggie wants more. She's asking for spousal support and she wants John to foot the bill for her attorney.

They were married in 1971. They have no minor children.

John, who is 68, and Maggie bought an epic beachfront property in Manhattan Beach, CA not too long ago -- a double lot on the sand. It's worth way more than you can afford.

40 Years is a good run, I'd be interested to know what the "irreconcilable differences" are.

If that's an old picture, she still looks pretty "load worthy" for an old bag.
Unless he married he when she was 5.

So let me get this straight... She wants the divorce, and he needs to pay for it all. Same ol crock of s**t. Different day. Just stay single.

Why is half of the fortune not enough? I understand child support completely but spousal support is a stupid idea. Why should anyone have to pay someone else they are no longer with.

He looks like he's been out in the sun too much. Gives Kenny Rogers a run for his money in the face department!

Why the hell would anyone give her 50% of what id imagine is a rather large chunk of change, and then have him have to continually pay her for the rest of her life and all of her legal fees. As far as i see it 50/50 is just that. Not 75/25 after she gets to bleed him dry. This is why marriage is such a bull**** institution these days because women feel the need to have to destroy the person they're married to when **** goes south. Till death do us part or until i divorce your ass and take everything you ever had because i somehow deserve it... Only in America. Amen!
