The messy divorce between former Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt is only getting worse. Following the sale of the Dodgers for $2.15 billion over the summer, Jamie McCourt is claiming her ex-husband did not accurately report the value of the franchise. She had originally settled for $131 million, which is obviously a huge disparity from what the Magic-Johnson-led group paid for the team.

Here is ESPN Los Angeles with the latest from Los Angeles.

Jamie McCourt's attorney, Bertram Fields, told The Associated Press that she "thought very long and very hard about whether to file this motion" but that after other means failed, she returned to court.

"Mr. McCourt got about 93 percent of the family assets, and Mrs. McCourt got about 7 percent," Fields said in a phone interview late Tuesday. "We would've much preferred to have this massive imbalance resolved with some modification, but we got no response to that approach. We didn't want to have more family litigation, but now it's up to the court."

This divorce settlement figures to go on for many years, and there is no end in sight. Fortunately for the Dodgers franchise, neither of the McCourts are in a position to hold the team back.
