Mike Epps Soon To Be Ex-Wife Asks Court For 109K Per Month – Tha Wire
The wifey was evidently monitoring Epps activity on Twitter and when the 46-year old star asked the woman to DM him, she hit her husband up with "eye" emoji's. The two held the marriage together for a while after the incident, but the ultimately separated. By January 2016, it was officially over and sadly the funnyman filed for divorce. The couple met on the movie set of The Fighting Temptations, got married in 2006 and have two daughters Maddie and Mariah, ages 10 and 12.
It's been a year now, since the talented actor has filed for divorce. Yet TMZ reports the couple hasn't been able to come to a settlement, and that may have to do with the six-figure alimony Mechelle is asking for. Mrs. Epps ain't trying to walk away empty handed, that's for sure. Court docs reveal Mechelle Epps is claiming that the star blindsided her, when he filed for divorce. The 36-year old mother of two alleges the star never wanted her to work, and has no way to support herself and their daughters. She also claims Epps recently locked out of their joint bank accounts and her credit cards have been shut down.
The following figures is a breakdown on Mechelle's monthly expenses:
1. $72k per year for private schooling.
2. $3,500 per month to cover her mother's nanny salary.
3. $600 per month to pay the note on her mom's Mercedes.
4. Miscellaneous expenses totalling a few thousand for hair, groceries, vacations and more.
Mechelle is asking for a whopping $109, 036 per month and the family residence! Is it cheaper to keep her? Damn... Divorce sucks! As always I'll keep you posted on this one. For all things entertainment get the scoop with Tha Wire, and only on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
