‘Nah, Nah, Nah, You Not Gonna Be Goin’ For Mine!’ Kandi Burruss Is Dead Serious About Not Paying Spousal Support
Kandi Burruss is playing no games when it comes to her cash, as we’ve witnessed in episodes of her wedding special. During a recent chat with theGrio, Kandi opened up about why she was so adamant about signing a prenuptial agreement, with one of the primary reasons apparently being her refusal to pay spousal support should things fall apart.
“I’m not paying spousal support, oh no,” she says. “I’m seeing too much going on right now. Halle Berry’s paying $20,000 a month in child support, and then poor Sherri [Shepherd], she had a pre-nup and now [her husband, John Sally] is coming after her [for spousal support]. They’ve only been married a few years. Are you kidding me?”
She also reiterated her sentiments about people trying to hurt one another once things go awry.
“You don’t get to see it a lot… where a woman is in financially better off than the husband,” Kandi said. “You have to protect yourself.”
“Y’all know how divorce happens out of the blue to people that we thought we couldn’t believe they got divorced. So you have to be ready for a mad day. People can work things out and talk about how we wanted things to be when we’re on the same page, but when we get mad people want to hurt each other. How they want to hurt you? In your pocket. You not gonna be goin for mine.”
Contrary to popular belief, Kandi says that she and Todd did agree on a specific figure that he would get if their marriage doesn’t last, but she made it clear that it’s not some astronomical number. As far as money that they may make together over the course of their marriage, Kandi says she has no problem splitting those funds with him if things should end.
“I feel like we should work together to make money together. The things that I’m trying to protect are the things that I had going into the marriage, meaning: Bedroom Kandi, my music, my stores, my properties and different things that I had going into the marriage.”
Well, Ms. Kandi has spoken!
