R&B singer Ginuwine has stepped up to addresss making headlines this month for a publicized split from music star wife Solé and provided an update on his financial situation.
Gin resorted to his Instagram page to set the record straight on his estranged wife.
I need to address yesterday's rumor because it is not totally accurate and I don't want my wife being made out to be the bad guy here. We are NOT yet divorced, but we ARE currently separated and working towards coming to our own agreement, without lawyers, to amicably and fairly divorce. We've kept it quiet because it is really no ones business but ours and our family's. Therefore, reports that she left me "broke" are untrue. She has been a good wife and mother and my poor choices and actions over many years have lead to this. I am on a path of becoming a better man and part of that is taking responsibility for my own choices and behavior in life, so that's what I'm doing by releasing this statement. I thank everyone who has been there for us through these trying times. You are appreciated. God bless
Check out what Ginuwine’s attorney said about his money woes right here…
Earlier in the week, Ginuwine’s attorney revealed how much of a financial crunch his one-time client was in.
“Mr. Lumpkin is very close to declaring bankruptcy,” Ginuwine’s lawyer, Bruce Beckner, said. “He owes my firm a ton of money and a bunch of other people a ton of money. He owes Uncle Sam 300-odd thousand dollars in back income taxes.” (NY Daily News)
Music producer Robert Reives also dished on what Ginuwine owed him.
Beckner attributed the money trouble to a recent divorce from his wife, the rapper Solé. Reives says he is owed royalties from a $1.25 million five-album deal Ginuwine signed with Sony, and seeks as much as $250,000. Ginuwine argues that Reives’ claim falls outside the statute of limitations, and that he isn’t owed anything. The two sides will argue their case in Manhattan Federal Court Monday. (NY Daily News)
Following the widespread coverage, Gin posted up some motivation words onto his Instagram page.
