Early this morning, reports came out that rapper/ producer Timbaland & his wife of 5 years, Monique Mosley, are headed for divorce.
According to TMZ, Monique has filed for divorce from her super-producer husband. Monique is asking for alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp, and other expenses for both herself, and their 5-year-old daughter Reign. She is also trying to seek child support for a 10-year-old from another relationship that Timbaland has thus accepted as his own. She states “Timbaland is the father by default, since he’s publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.”
Monique is also claiming that she has no money and even had to borrow from a friend to cover her lawyer fees. She wants Timbaland, who’s worth a reported $80 million, to compensate her (or her friend) for the lawyer’s fees. While divorce proceedings are still pending, she has also asked for a lump sum, “rehabilitative alimony,” and permanent alimony. (Sounds like a lot, all at once.)
The couple had welcomed their daughter in 2007 and decided to wed one year later in Virginia. They had been married for five years, but were a couple for twice that time — 10 years of companionship now down the drain.
Details on the divorce are still under works so stay tuned for more..
