The ex-wife of the late Stuart Scott, the former “SportsCenter” and ESPN mainstay who died of bone cancer in 2015, is suing Disney for money she says she is owed from the couple’s divorce, The Hollywood Reporter’s THR, Esq., reports.
Stuart and Kimberley Scott divorced in 2007, the report notes, and “according to a complaint filed Friday in Connecticut federal court, she’s still owed money from the split that had been part of his 401k.”
Attorney Dori Hightower is quoted writing in the complaint: “Pursuant to the divorce decree, Stuart O. Scott was to turn over $162,899.04, plus interest, dividends, gains and losses from his Disney Savings and Investment Plan. Scott died without ever complying with the herein stated provision of the divorce decree.”
THR adds: “Kimberley Scott is also suing Fidelity, which administered the sportscaster’s 401k. She claims the two companies allowed the trustees of Scott’s estate to roll the investment account into another one, which deprived her of her share.”
