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?
