Mike Epps' Ex-Wife Believes She's "Too Old" For A Job, Demands Six-Figures In Spousal Support
Mechelle Epps, the estranged wife of comedian Mike Epps, is demanding that her ex-husband provides her with $109,000 per month in spousal support.
According to TMZ, the monthly stipend is for "clothes and shoes" for the former couple's 10 and 12-year-old daughters, as well as for food, vacations and getting their daughters' hair braided at an "expensive salon."
Mechelle's mother nannies for $3,500 a month, and she also needs an additional $600 to cover her mother's Mercedes. Not to mention, Mechelle is also asking for $72,000 for their children's private school education, as well as sole possession of the house.
Mechelle also says in court documents that Mike did not allow her to have a job while they were married, and now that she is 36 years old, she believes she is "too old" for a job.
"Mike makes $3.5 million a year, but recently cut her off from bank accounts and credit cards, leaving her high and dry with zero income," says the site. According to sources, Mike filed for divorce in Jan. 2016, but a settlement has not been reached.
