Super producer Timbaland and his wife are on their way to divorce court. Timbaland’s wife Monique recently filed for divorce and is asking her soon to be ex to pay child support for two children, one of whom was not biologically fathered by the producer.
The couple had a 10-year relationship and were married for five years. They have a 5-year-old daughter together, but they both also have children from previous relationships. Monique has a 10-year-old son, while Timbaland has two sons.
Monique Mosley is asking a judge to grant her a monthly allotment for alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp, and other expenses. Here is where things get tricky. Not only is she requesting money for the child that Timbaland fathered during their relationship, she is also asking that he handle the support for her other child from a prior relationship. Mosley made the claim that Timbaland has “publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own”. She feels that for this reason alone her ex should dish out cash for both of the children.
Monique has also requested that Timbaland pay for her lawyer’s fees since she is unable to make the payments herself and has been reportedly borrowing money from a friend. She is also asking for a form of temporary alimony until the divorce is finalized and she is able to get what a permanent amount of money.
It should be interesting to see how this plays out. I don’t think Timbaland should be responsible for providing support for a child that is not his. Where is the child’s biological father? Shouldn’t he be the one who has the responsibility of supporting HIS child? It sounds like Mrs. Mosley is looking for the BIG payback, and expects Timbaland to take care of her, but as the mother of the two children where does her responsibility start? Shouldn’t she be required to be gainfully employed and provide a portion of the support as well? Just because someone is a multi-millionaire doesn’t mean that the judicial system should be allowed to railroad them. I hope these two work this situation out, and there are no negative effects on their children.
What Do You Think? Should Timbaland Have To Pay Child Support For A Child That Is Not His?
