Grammy-winning producer Timbaland’s wife, Monique, has reportedly filed for divorce after spending the last five years with the hip-hop mogul.
Details of the unexpected split surfaced online Wednesday (October 16).
Timbaland’s wife has filed for divorce … TMZ has learned … and she’s not only demanding that he foot the bill for their kid, she wants him to pay for a kid he didn’t even father. Monique Mosley says in her divorce docs — obtained by TMZ — that although she and Timbaland have been married for 5 years, they’ve been a couple for twice that time. In addition to their 5-year-old daughter, Monique has a 10-year-old from another relationship. So why, you ask, is she asking for child support for both kids? Monique says Timbaland is the daddy by default, since he’s “publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.” (TMZ)
Reports also claim Mrs. Mosley is seeking handfuls of money from Timbo.
But that’s not all. Monique wants alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp and other expenses. She says she’s so strapped for cash, she had to borrow money from a friend to pay her lawyer. She wants Timbaland — who’s worth around $80 mil — to foot the lawyer’s bill. One more thing. She wants to get Timbaland coming and going. In the alimony department, she says she wants money while divorce proceedings are pending, she wants a lump sum, she wants “rehabilitative alimony,” and permanent alimony. It’s like she’s trying to cut him down like a mighty tree in the forest — TIMBA! (TMZ)
The news comes weeks after rap veteran Big Boi‘s wife filed for divorce.
Big Boi (real name Antwon A. Patton) from Outkast may be facing a child custody battle from his estranged wife after she filed divorce papers in in Fulton County Superior Court yesterday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Sherlita M. Patton said in court documents that their 11 year marriage is “irretrievably broken.” She is also seeking alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees.

Tim and Monique reportedly share one child together.
Timbaland, 41, is one of the biggest names in music. He’s worked with stars including Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, Ginuwine, Jay Z, Ludacris, and Aaliyah. He and Mosley — together for 10 years, married for five — welcomed daughter Reign in 2007. He also has two sons, Demetrius and Frankie, from a previous relationship. (Us Magazine)
