Mike Epps’ Wife Wants Spousal Support Because At 36, She’s Too Old To Get A Job

Mike Epps Wife Spousal Support

Mike Epps’ wife is a character. I had never heard of her until today, but I don’t have to know her to know that someone who would make the claims that she has, is a character indeed.

According to TMZ, Mechelle Epps is requesting $109,036 per month in support from her estranged husband.

Mechelle claims Mike makes $3.5 million every year but has recently cut her off from bank accounts and credit cards, leaving her with zero income. Document state that her husband never wanted her to work during their marriage; and now, as a result, she can’t get a job because she’s too old.

Mechelle is 36.

In documents, Mechelle said she spends several thousand dollars a month on shoes and clothes for their 10 and 12 year-old girls. In addition to attire, the girls have to get their hair braided at an “expensive salon.” They need food, vacations and $72,000 per year for private school.

Mechelle is asking for $3,5000 a month to compensate her mother for nannying the girls and another $600 for the mother’s Mercedes.

The $109,036 should cover everything. Mechelle also wants sole posession of the house.

Mike Epps was the one to file for the divorce in January 2016 but the couple have yet to reach a final agreement.

There’s no doubt in my mind that just being married to someone like Mike Epps would entitle you to some money. But mostly child support. Plus the fact that she positioned herself as too old to work might not bode too well for her in front of a family court judge.
