Mechelle Epps, the estranged wife of American stand-up comedian and actor, Mike Epps is asking him to pay her $109k a month in child and spousal support following their divorce in 2016, TMZ reports, citing court docs. Ms.Epps told the court that Mike makes $3.5 million a year but recently cut her off from his bank accounts and credit cards, leaving her dry with zero income.
She says Mike never wanted her to work during their marriage, and now she can’t land a job because she’s too old at 36.
In the docs, she said she spends several thousands of dollars a month on shoes and clothes for their 10 and 12-year-old daughters. Plus, the girls have to get their hair braided at an ‘expensive salon’ not to mention food, vacations and $72k per year for private schooling.
Mechelle says her mom handles nanny duties hence needs to pay her a mere $3,500 monthly, plus another $600 to cover Mom’s Mercedes.
According to the docs, $109,036 per month from Mike should cover everything. Mechelle also wants sole possession of their home.
Mike Epps filed for divorce from his wife of 10 years in January 2016,, but they are yet to reach a final divorce settlement.
