According to court papers, Lorrie Nantz wants to keep the family's mansion as well as $1.5 million per year in alimony for their 15-year-old daughter, Caroline. Jim Nantz also admitted to having a 29-year-old girlfriend on the side,
Jim Nantz makes nearly $8 million a year in salary and other compensation arrangements.
Watching the Jim Nantz divorce trial was like seeing a car crash -- you just couldn't look away.
Sitting on a makeshift stand before the court, Nantz grew teary as he testified, blaming the marriage's demise on his wife's lavish spending habits, as well as what he claimed was a lack of support for his career, the paper reported.
