He’s officially a swinging single again.
Yankee GM Brian Cashman and his estranged wife, Mary Bresnan, yesterday finalized their divorce, a year after she learned that her hubby of 17 years had rounded the bases with alleged shakedown nut Louise Meanwell.
The pair showed up separately with their lawyers in Family Court in Stamford, Conn. Neither looked at the other during the 10-minute hearing.
As part of the deal, Bresnan, 43 — who reverted to her maiden name in August — gets to keep the couple’s $3.7 million home in Darien.
She’ll also receive alimony — although it’s unclear how much — until Oct. 31, 2025, unless she remarries, and then it’s cut off.
They will share custody of their two kids — Grace, 14, and Theodore, 9. The children will live with Bresnan, while Cashman will get visitation.
Before the hearing, the Bronx Bomber honcho looked as dejected as a player who’d just been sent to the minors, sitting in a conference room with his head in his hands.
When the judge asked him later whether he had approved the divorce deal, Cashman, 45, replied simply, “Yes.’’
Bresnan nervously played with her long dark hair as she answered, “Yes,’’ when asked by the judge whether the marriage was “irrevocably broken.”
Cashman quickly ducked out after the proceeding and drove off in a black SUV. Bresnan left from a separate back exit.
Cashman’s spokesman, Chris Giglio, declined to comment. Bresnan, reached by phone after court, also refused to talk.
Bresnan had previously stood by her man amid allegations of his cheating with Westchester soccer-mom-of-two Kim Brennan in 2009.
But she finally called Cashman out after Meanwell surfaced last year, accusing him of carrying on a nearly yearlong affair and allegedly extorting him for more than $6,000 to keep quiet about it when she was spurned.
The sordid criminal case against Meanwell has included claims that she got pregnant during her affair with Cashman and that he pressured her into having an abortion. Cashman’s rep has denied the claim.
