Timbaland’s beats may be soaring to the top of the charts these days, but his romantic life has fallen flat in the dumps. Reports reveal that the hitmaker’s wife, Monique Mosley, has filed for divorce from Tim after five years of marriage.
According to TMZ, Monique is asking for a hefty sum from Timbaland for herself, their daughter and somewhat surprisingly, a 10-year-old child she had from a previous relationship.
According to divorce documents, Monique claims that, despite being married only for only five years, she and Tim have been a couple for twice that time. Monique says that Tim has “publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.”
Monique also claims that she’s, for all intents and purposes, is broke and had to ask a friend for money to pay her lawyer. Monique is asking that Tim, who is worth $80 million, cough up money for alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp, her lawyer’s fees and other expenses.
When it comes specifically to alimony, Monique says she wants lump sum money while divorce proceedings are pending, she wants “rehabilitative alimony,” and permanent alimony.
Clearly, Monique wants a gargantuan piece of Tim’s fortune but we’ll have to wait to see if he forks over the cash without resistance or if he fights her in court. Either way, this will likely be an expensive divorce for Tim.
