Woah! Mike Epps Finally Divorced & His Ex-Wife Just Got Paid!!!
Comedian/actor, Mike Epps, just gave a whole new meaning to Johnnie Taylor’s soul classic song, “It’s Cheaper To Keep Her.” He and his wife of 12 years, Mechelle Epps, have finally made their divorce final and the ex Mrs. came up big time, which was to be expected because they were married for so long. Matter of fact, Mechelle’s new theme song could very well be Johnny Kemp’s joint, “Just Got Paid…it’s Friday night….” Here are the details of their divorce:
Via TMZ: Epps pays Mechelle $25k a month in spousal support for a total of 6 1/2 years, but if she remarries he stops paying. He also has to pay $15k a month in support for their 2 children. He’s also footing the bill for their private school. […] They agreed to joint legal custody and are still in the process of working out the physical custody arrangement.
That’s not all though, Mechelle will also come up off of Mike’s movie royalties and other perks:
Via TMZ: And Mike and Mechelle split royalties from his numerous movie and TV roles, including “The Hangover,” “Hancock” and “Girl Trip.” Mechelle walks away with a small fleet of cars herself, including a 2014 Bentley, 2013 Mercedes, 2015 Toyota Prius and a 2013 Land Rover. The couple will sell their family home in Encino and split the profits.
But Mike shouldn’t feel too bad, at least he got to keep some of his cars and he got a big end of the deal with their many properties:
Mike walks away with 10 — count them — 10 properties in Indiana. He keeps his 2016 Mercedes, his 2015 Jeep Cherokee, ’79 Caddy and 2011 Suzuki chopper. -TMZ
It’s very unfortunate their marriage didn’t last, but based on the drama (cheating allegations) they publicly went through toward the end of their divorce, it’s sometimes better to end things as friends and move on.
Mike has already found happiness with the new love of his life, girlfriend, Kyra Robinson. She’s a producer for Oprah’s OWN Network, in particular she produces for Iyanla Fix My Life show, which airs on OWN.
It’s unclear if Mechelle Epps has moved on with a new man in her life as of yet, but word to the wise for Mechelle, don’t jump that broom until that six year spousal support agreement is up. Pretty sure Mike Epps ain’t no fool, he’ll probably be ready and willing to halt those checks as soon as Mechelle and her new boo say “I do.”
