Timbaland’s wife, Monique Mosley, filed for divorce from the famed producer back in October 2013, and at the time she demanded that he pay child support for their daughter and Monique’s child from a previous relationship.
A year later, according to court docs, the divorce case was quietly dismissed. However, it appears their reconciliation couldn’t save the marriage. According to Bossip, Monique has filed for divorce again.
The couple have been together for 12 years and married for seven. The impending divorce entitles Monique to Timbaland’s hefty fortune. When she filed back in 2013, he was worth an estimated $70 million. Has he since been hired as the executive music producer for FOX’s hit drama series, Empire.
In the same week that the first season of the musical drama ended, its soundtrack debuted at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, making it the first TV series soundtrack to top the 50-year-old list.
In her initial filing, Monique demanded alimony and child support for their daughter, as well as for her child from a previous relationship, stating Timbaland is the daddy by default since he’s “publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.”
Monique’s specific reason for wanting out of the relationship has not been disclosed.
The divorce was filed in Florida court and Timbaland has yet to respond to the petition.
Meanwhile, Timbaland previously announced his work on Missy Elliot’s new album at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards last month. He revealed Elliott’s new single would be a collaboration with rapper/producer Pharrell Williams.
“I love my sister to death,” he told the crowd. “I know the tabloids love to talk, and I’m going to say it now,” he said, “Her first single is from my cousin—and yes, we are family—Pharrell.”
