Carla Hall of the Times has jumped in, confirming that the $225,000 temporary support figure is monthly. Combining it with the mortgage payments, that puts Frank's support obligations at $637,159 each month for the duration of the divorce. A long-term solution will be worked out as part of the proceedings going forward.
TMZ is reporting that Commissioner Gordon
Frank will have to make those mortgage payments retroactive to last December--meaning he must write her a seven-figure check. That $1 million per month Jamie was seeking? Forget about it. The biggest damage to Frank coming out of today's news is that Commissioner Gordon didn't buy Frank's neat little attempt to have the court bless the post-nup. Frank, you'll recall, wanted the court to order Jamie to dispose of some of the couple's real estate to help pay her bills. Such an order would have implicitly acknowledged the validity of the post-nup, which stipulates that the residential properties are Jamie's and the Dodgers Frank's in the case of a divorce.
Instead, the court ordered the couple's Cabo San Lucas property sold, and the proceeds split between the two. The property is valued at approximately $6 million, so Jamie's take from the sale won't cover even half her legal bills, currently standing at about $8 million.
