Jim Nantz and Courtney Richards

Jim Nantz may appear so cool on TV but this does not mean his personal life is devoid of drama. For some peculiar reasons, Nantz married twice and also has kids from the marriages. He was first married to Ann-Lorraine “Lorrie” Carlsen. The couple got married in 1983 but split in 2009 after almost 26 years of marriage. They had a daughter, Caroline. Caroline Nantz who is a USC graduate works with NBC Universal’s Access Hollywood.

It is not clear what came between the two but rumors had it at the time that the failure of their marriage was due to Nantz’s extramarital affair with Courtney Richards. But during the divorce trial, the judge concluded that the marriage was already plagued with challenges before the affair and that its failure cannot be attributed to the affair.

However, the trial ended with a financial blow on Nantz which required him to pay his ex-wife almost $1 million a year in alimony and child support. To be precise, he was to pay $916,000 to Lorrie. The alimony also included the money for his ex-wife’s two Connecticut homes and also her $70 thousand country club membership.
