Mike Epps probably knew his divorce from estranged wife Mechelle Epps was going to cost him big. But when the two split more than a year ago (shortly after he was caught creeping on social media) we can guess he wasn’t expecting the number Mechelle has now put on the table.
TMZ reported that new legal documents show that the former Mrs. Epps has requested approximately $109,000 — per month. Her reason for the exorbitant number is just as surprising as request for monthly the six figures themselves.
According to court documents, Mechelle says that Mike didn’t want her working while they were together, and now — at the ripe age of 36 — she is too old to find a job.
The documents added that Mrs. Epps claimed her ex makes $3.5 million a year, but has recently cut her off from previously shared bank accounts and credit cards.
The high price tag includes an allowance for shoes and clothes for their two children, as well as food, vacations, and $72,000 a year for their children’s private school education.
If that wasn't enough, Mechelle reportedly also wants sole possession of the Epps's home. She has previously made it clear that their split was not mutual, and that she suspects her husband was unfaithful. Seems she's trying to hit him where it hurts.
