Drew Rosenhaus, one of the NFL’s most visible player agents and a Miami Beach resident, filed for divorce in a Miami-Dade County court this week, slightly more than a year after marrying realty agent Lisa Thomson.
Rosenhaus, 48, used the usual “irreconcilable differences” in his filing. Rosenhaus isn’t returning calls for comment, and his lawyer wouldn’t talk about the filing.
But Thomson, who with mom Jennifer and sister Michelle is part of the house-selling Thomson Team, said in an exclusive interview that she hopes she and Drew can patch things up.
Lisa confirmed that an argument between her and Drew and his brother and business partner, Jason Rosenhaus, prompted her to call Miami Beach Police to their Indian Creek house after the NFL conference finals Sunday night.
Never miss a local story.
When cops got there, Drew handed her a plastic bag to pack her stuff and kicked her out of the house. Strangely, Rosenhaus’ marital home is owned by him and brother Jason, according to the deed.
“If you’re looking for the real reason of the divorce, it might be because Jason’s always at the house,” Lisa says. “They both work from there. There’s no privacy.”
Cops left the house without an arrest, which is rare in domestic spats.
“Drew didn’t do anything wrong,” Thomson says, adding she called police for her own protection because there are guns in the crib. “He’s a great guy, but things aren’t working out.”
The two were married in November 2013. And, if you believe Lisa, it hasn’t all been a bed of roses.
“I’m 29 and I like to go out,” Lisa said. “I’m a Realtor. I’m always out with clients. Drew doesn’t like me to have my own life.”
Rosenhaus and his brother objected to her being out all day Sunday while they watched football.
“It’s a tough time of year for him,” Lisa says. “He’s always busy and gone. We’ll probably sit down and talk after the Super Bowl.”
Rosenhaus has represented dozens of Miami Dolphins players over the years, including legend Zach Thomas and current receiver Brian Hartline. It’s been said that Rosenhaus partly inspired Tom Cruise’s NFL agent character in the romantic yarn Jerry Maguire.
WLRN-91.3 FM reporter Kelley Mitchell announced late Thursday on her Facebook page that she was fired after three years as the voice of the afternoon drive-time news on the NPR station.
Although she hasn’t been returning calls, Mitchell, best known as Rick Sanchez’s sidekick on the WSVN-Channel 7 anchor desk for years, wrote that the station got rid of her on the day after Oscar, her Welsh Corgi, underwent his last treatment for cancer.
She has been chronicling the pooch’s battle for his life on the station.
“Thanks, WLRN,” Mitchell wrote, “you fired me one day after … Oscar finished his cancer treatment. My best to you, always.” She eventually took down the posting.
Said VP for News Tom Hudson: “WLRN does not comment on personnel issues.”

Stephen Levin, the businessman who bought the Miami Beach mansion built by New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez for $30 million in 2013, just hit paydirt.
Levin owned the Doral-base Gold Coast Beverage Distributors, South Florida’s biggest beer wholesaler.
Owned? Levin, who’s married to a former Miss Germany, sold the company to Chicago’s Reyes Beverage Group for $1.5 billion, according to a source familiar with the transaction.
