It's been a long, arduous, and contentious battle, and it appears it's coming to an end: Frank and Jamie McCourt's high-profile divorce is about to be settled, reports the L.A. Times, and as part of the agreement, Jamie McCourt will agree to give up any claims on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Times is reporting on the settlement based on information provided by anonymous sources close to the case. The settlement has not been finalized,and neither McCourt camps offered any comment.

As part of the rumored deal, Jamie McCourt would be getting about $130 million. Frank McCourt would also be left unencumbered by his estranged wife's challenges to the Major League Baseball team's ownership, thus aiding in his current efforts to retain ownership of the team, whose dire financial situation has landed the team in bankruptcy proceedings.
