One of the United States most expensive divorces in legal history is coming to an end as the Dodger’s owner, Frank McCourt, is agreeing to pay his ex-wife Jamie $130 million as long as he gets to keep the team.

This marks the end of a long battle to reach the agreement and came to a resolution when Jamie, the former CEO of the Dodgers agreed to abandon plans to claim a share of the team.

The couple was married for almost 30 years before they separated. The divorce was debated over the last two years.

Their divorce is valued at $1.2 billion as it includes six homes and the $800 million LA Dodgers team.
