Major League Baseball star Pete Rose has made the bulk of his post-sports career cash by signing autographs. His wife claims that he makes hundreds of thousands of dollars every year doing so, but loses it in gambling. Their pending divorce, started in 2011, continues with a new filing. His wife requested that Rose to reveal his personal finances so that the couple can split the marital assets and finally complete the divorce. Missouri fans of Rose may be interested in the developing case.
The couple originally married back in 1984. Apparently, he filed for divorce back in 2011, but the breakup was never finalized. Rose has moved on romantically, and even made a reality TV show with his new girlfriend, a younger former Playboy model. The former ballplayer’s penchant for making money with appearances and signed memorabilia has been documented in the past by magazines.
His estranged wife claims that Rose makes $100,000 per month signing autographs, but that his taste for gambling causes most of the money to be lost. She alleges that he owes significant amounts of money to the IRS and to casinos. She has asked the court to compel Rose to reveal his finances so that the divorce settlement can be finalized.
Individuals in Missouri going through the process of separating marital assets and finances during a divorce can relate to the importance of having a clear picture of the finances of both parties. Rose may finally have to reveal his financial status so that his soon-to-be ex-wife can formally end her marriage with the ballplayer. Other individuals looking for help in getting estranged partners to reveal the state of their financial affairs may wish to do so with the aid of an experienced family law attorney.
