LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt wants a judge to reduce the amount of spousal support he’s paying to his ex-wife in their divorce battle over ownership of the team.

In court documents filed Friday, McCourt says he has paid more than $5 million to pay the mortgages of six homes and a condominium over the last year as well as $2.7 million in temporary spousal support to Jamie McCourt.
COURT DOCS:

McCourt says he can no longer support his former wife’s lifestyle.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon last May ordered McCourt to pay $225,000 a month in spousal support and more than $400,000 a month to maintain the homes.

Major League Baseball assumed control of the club’s day-to-day operations in April and McCourt recently filed for bankruptcy protection.
