Julianna Zobrist is asking for $4 Million in extra money from Ben Zobrist in their divorce because he left the Cubs while she allegedly slept with the pastor

Last month, Ben Zobrist opened a lawsuit against Byron Yawn, his former pastor who he accused of sleeping with his ex-wife Julianna Zobrist, along with defrauding his charitable organization.

When Ben and Julianna Zobrist were in the early stages of ending their long marriage in 2019, Ben Zobrist left the Cubs to go deal with his family.

Zobrist forfeited $8 Million of his salary during that season, and now, Julianna is asking for $4 Million of that forfeited money from Ben Zobrist.

“In 2019, he had a contract with the Chicago Cubs for ($12 million), but since he only played for 2 months, his salary was prorated and he only earned ($4.5 million) of the ($12 million) he could have earned,” according to the memorandum filed July 14 in Williamson County, Tenn., by Julianna Zobrist’s attorney, Marlene Eskind Moses of Nashville, Tenn.-based MTR Family Law via The Chicago Tribune.

The complaint would go on to say that Ben Zobrist, ““intentionally and voluntarily stopped working” and “essentially went from the top of his game to basically giving up, which caused a massive loss in income.”

Julianna Zobrist is seeking a 50-50 split of marital assets, along with the $4 Million from the complaint.

Ben, on the other hand, thinks the split should be 60-40, and his team would combat the $4 million request.

“Rather than accepting blame for having torn her husband’s heart out by having an affair with their pastor, she expected him to be able to totally focus in an elite athletic job that required (100%) of his physical and mental energy,” Ben Zobrist’s attorney Helen S. Rogers writes in the memorandum. “It is Mrs. Zobrist, by having the extramarital affair and confessing same to her husband, and not disclosing the true extent of her affair, that caused him such extreme mental distress and difficulty that resulted in an inability to finish his long and very successful career in the way that he had hoped for and planned for.”

It certainly appears that Ben and Julianna Zobrist are in the midst of one of the more messy divorces we’ve seen in a long time. Let’s just hope the kids don’t get hurt by any of this.
