“Stevie Wonder Could See Through This Publicity Stunt.” Master P Responds To Wife’s Claims That She’s Broke

Most of us knew that Master P was married. And last week we learned the marriage has been in shambles for the past seven years when Sonya Miller told TMZ that she is broke and now living off of welfare with four children while Master P is living off of the fortune he’s amassed over the years, an estimated $200 million.

Sonya said that she helped Master P create No Limit Records but he’s cut her off. She said things are so bad, she’s had to move in with her son Lil Romeo.

But despite being separated for seven years, Master P hasn’t responded to the divorce petition and was fined $10k for ignoring the case.

When TMZ reported the story, Master P wrote an open letter addressing the claims his wife has made. In it, he claimed that he takes care of the children and said that he’d give Sonya everything she asked for if she were able to pass a drug test.

You can read the letter, which was posted on Plugged In Entertainment, in its entirety below:

Master P asks TMZ, Why is this news? I haven’t been with this person in over 7 years. She has had several boyfriends since then. I take great care of all of my kids, all of their needs are being met in an abundance. I come from the ghetto, I changed my life but she didn’t want to grow with me so we’re not together. If Sonya supposedly helped me start any of my companies including No Limit, wouldn’t she be capable of creating some type of income in the last seven years besides turning to welfare?”

Educated business people don’t think like that even in hard times. Stevie Wonder could see through this publicity stunt. This is hilarious. All I ask is that she take a drug test in the next two weeks and pass it. I will give her everything I have. The four minors she says she needs help with, three of them are with me, this makes no sense. I’m tired of sugarcoating and hiding the truth of ungrateful people that I’ve been taking care of for so many years. If she’s that great of a businesswoman like she claims, she should be able to do it again for herself.

I don’t trip on my past success. Even through the rebuilding stages in my life, I never blamed anybody. I just figured it out and worked harder. I put my trust in God, not people. You can expect people to take shots at you but I never imagined the people you take care of to turn on you.

I can see why wealthy people leave their money to charity because there are so many ungrateful, unappreciative family members that feel entitled even when they haven’t contributed. When things are going good, everybody loves you, but when things aren’t so good, you see the real in people and even in relationships. I’m not mad at her though. I’ll just pray for her, she will always be the mother of my children. I’m not perfect but I go above and beyond to provide for my kids and family.

Dang! Claiming the mother of your children is on drugs is no small thing.

Their son, Romeo aka Lil Romeo, also commented on his parents’ marital drama saying,

“My father is a good man, my parents are not together but he still provides a roof, transportation and all of her living expenses. Honestly, she gives me the bills and I hand them over to him and he takes care of it. She is blessed, she lives in a guard-gated community and drives luxury vehicles. It’s funny how people jump on negative media and gossip instead of all the positives things that my father does for underprivileged kids in communities across the U.S. That’s okay though, the enemy doesn’t try to stop you from where you’re at, but where you’re going. We must be going into even bigger success. Miller Dynasty, No Limit Forever.”

Wow. Whatever happens with this family, we’re hoping for the best for them. It’s sad to see this unravel this way and we’re hoping that they can take care of this “in house” so to speak. Judging from what you know of their story, are you more inclined to believe Master P and Romeo or his estranged wife Sonya?

    I don’t know if she is on drugs or not. It is interesting how she is being attacked and he is being taken at his word. After being married to someone for a couple of decades and having four children together, why are women expected to walk away with little to nothing because he moved on? I understand men attacking women over this issue because they can be greedy and selfish, but nowadays women attack other women as well. I would suggest to all (including Romeo) who weren’t in that marriage, not to speculate about exactly what went on in that marriage. What is an undeniable fact is that she was married to him for a long time, had children with him and was there when he had nothing. She should not have to move to the projects and work the night shift at McDonald’s because the marriage ended!!!! I have worked all my adult life so I don’t relate to being a housewife, but there is nothing wrong with being one!!!!

    Did you not read he has three of their kids so why does she need to be taken care of!! And if she is not doing drugs why wont she do the drug test!!

  • FromUR2UB

    Wow. Knowing who to believe is a toughie. But, if she is on drugs, then I don’t blame him for not wanting to support that habit and throw money away. He pubished a statement saying she can have everything he has if she can pass a drug test.; he must feel pretty confident that it won’t come to that to put it out there like that. It would also have been pretty stupid of her to go public, if that’s something that could be exposed about her. He does have a point that if she did the business thing once, she should be able to do it again, though. Hope they find some resolution.

  • Homeboy

    I know there are 3 sides to every story, but considering the fact that Lil Romeo is on his dad’s side, I think I believe Mater P.

  • Lisa

    It’s interesting to me that he makes a statement saying she’s lying and everybody agrees. There are 3 sides to a story and something tells me that both of them are at fault. I do know that he had a long term relationship that produced 2 children while he was married to Sonya. That would tell me that I needed to hustle and make sure that I put something away for when I left him.
    And him? Puhlease. He doesn’t want to go to court because she’s going to get paid. For him to demand a drug test is some bs. He can’t do that. He needs to man up and go on and give her the divorce she’s asking for.

    • FromUR2UB

      It must be the drug accusation. If it’s not true, she’s got him over a barrel because he publicly stated that all she has to do is PASS a drug test to get everything he has. He’d have to be pretty ballsy to make that claim if there’s no truth to it, because she could use that against him in court.

      • Lisa

        Her being a drug addict won’t change the fact that they had no prenup. All this talk out of court won’t settle the court case. The judge isn’t going to say if you pass a drug test you can get half. He needs to man up

  • Trisha_B

    Wait…she living in a gated community but saying she on welfare?! Who she trying to fool? Lol. I believe Romeo. If his mom was really struggling I’m sure he would have said so.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Whatever the truth is, deal with this behind closed doors.

    • Yvette

      I totally agree. This is so messy and unfortuately it will get worse.


    I believe Master P. I believed him when the story first broke.

  • Felisha Crooks-Sweet

    Damn, how did they manage to keep that separation from the media for all of those years?? I think P is a good guy with a strong argument. Sounds like Sonya could not let go of the hood mentality to get her #%sh together.If my man eva struck gold like that, trust and believe I would have 2 degrees under my belt with a damn good nest egg….we all know good things will soon come to an end. Hope she pass the damn drug test

    • Lisa

      This dude has 2 kids outside of the marriage. That is not a good man.

  • J

    Why only separated and not divorced, it’s been seven years?

    • Genea

      Probably because he didn’t have a pre-nup!

      • Lisa

        Exactly! You see it says he ignored the case and was fined. When they get into court, he’s done and he knows it. She was married to him before he came up AND he had 2 kids outside of the marriage. I don’t believe that she’s on welfare, but I doubt things are as great as Romeo says too.

    • Tahir White

      yup! Divorces cost money and with a networth of 200mill his wife would be buyn ALOT of drugs!

      • sunny
