Judge Grants Ginuwine And Solé’s Divorce

Look out ladies: You’ve been cleared to hop on Ginuwine’s pony.

Solé and Ginuwine are officially single after a Maryland judge OK’d the “In Those Jeans” singer’s divorce from his now ex-wife, BOSSIP can reveal.

Solé, who was born Tonya Johnston, quietly filed for divorce last spring, and we revealed she and Ginuwine had been living separately since 2013.

“I’m fine,” Ginuwine told BOSSIP. “There’s no comment. We’re good.”

Under the divorce deal, Ginuwine, 44, will pay Solé, 42, a $150,000 lump sum in exchange for her signing over her rights to their $1 million suburban Maryland marital home. Ginuwine, real name Elgin Lumpkin, will pay Solé $3,000 a month in child support for the couple’s two kids, Story, 14, and Dream, 12.

Solé will get one of their three homes in Kansas City, Mo., while Ginuwine will get the other two. Ginuwine agreed to hand over his 25 percent stake in their Missouri-based Spruce LLC, which teaches life skills to the developmentally disabled.

Neither asked for alimony.

The judge finalized the divorce July 22 at a hearing in Prince George’s County Circuit Court.

The couple drew up a contract to divvy up property and hash out custody six months before Solé filed for divorce, and Ginuwine must’ve been cool with the arrangement, because he didn’t challenge Solé’s divorce petition.

Ginuwine may have been upset about the end of his relationship, and expressed his sadness on social media the day the judge granted the divorce:

“Sm x when your having a hard dAy (sic) you buy things to feel better,” Ginuwine wrote on Instagram. “That wears off then you try and laugh when inside your (sic) crushed but you try and do all you can to focus and that’s all you can do and so I’m trying to.”

We’ve reached out to Solé for comment.
