Walsh's Ex Wins Battle With Tv Network
Kate Walsh's TV bosses will be forced to reveal the actress' wages and future earning potential to her estranged husband Alex Young as he fights for a share of her assets.
The Private Practice star has been embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with Young since separating from him last year (08) and ending their 14-month marriage.
The split has turned ugly in recent months as Walsh attempted to block her ex from claiming alimony and Young pushed to expose the true value of the actress' assets in a bid to swing the judge's decision in his favour.
On Wednesday (08Jul09) he won his battle after a Los Angeles judge ruled ABC president Stephen MCPherson must give a deposition at Young's request, and detail Walsh's wages and financial prospects, including upcoming pilot episodes and development deals.
A lawyer for ABC admits network bosses are displeased with the ruling: "It's as if (baseball player) Manny Ramirez was getting divorced and the first deposition they want to take is the president of (sports network) ESPN."
