NAVRATILOVA ACCUSED OF `PARTNER-MONY'

A former companion of tennis star Martina Navratilova filed suit seeking as much as $10 million from the world's fourth-ranked player. Judy Nelson filed documents in a Fort Worth court this week alleging that Navratilova failed to comply with a "non-marital cohabitation agreement" made after the two moved into a house together in 1986.

"It's a whole new concept," said Jerry Loftin, an attorney representing Nelson. "There's alimony, palimony and this is partner-mony. We're not asking for support. We're asking for half of the assets accumulated during the partnership. We're talking $5 to $10 million. We're saying (Martina) doesn't want to abide by the agreement to turn over the property and money."
