More on the McCourts

Earlier today we learned about Jamie McCourt’s request for more money.  Our friend Josh Fisher at Dodger Divorce points out something particularly delicious from her filing:

[P]erquisites paid directly by the McCourt business constituted a very significant element of the marital lifestyle, averaging an additional approximately $800,000 per month.

As Josh notes, the “McCourt business” is basically the Dodgers.  As Josh also notes, Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw made $871,000 in salary for the 2009 season combined.

As the philosopher Mel Brooks once said, It’s good to be the king. It ain’t bad being the former queen either.
