Producer Heads to Court in Divorce Battle With Estranged Wife, Despite Months of Blowing Off the Case
Music Mogul Timbaland has finally accepted his marriage is coming to an end – and has headed to court to fight his estranged wife in the divorce she filed earlier this year – despite the producer blowing off the case completely for months.
Monique Mosley slapped her husband Timbaland aka Timothy Mosley with divorce papers in 2013 after 10 years together and five years of marriage. The couple share a daughter together.
Monique demanded that the music mogul pay up child support for not only their kid but also her kid from another man. She explained that Timbaland had publicly and privately proclaimed the kid as his own, and therefore he should pay up for both.
She also demanded alimony, life insurance, private school costs, vacations, summer camp and other expenses. Monique didn’t only want permanent alimony but also a lump sum to be paid during the divorce proceedings. She pleaded with the court to award her attorney fees as well, claiming she was so broke she had to borrow money from a friend to hire a lawyer for the divorce.
However, almost a year later Monique dismissed her petition for divorce quietly. It appeared the couple had worked out their issues and reconciled due to the music mogul posting photos of them together on his social media.
Well, the reconciliation didn’t last too long with Monique heading back to court on June 22nd and slapping Timbaland with brand new divorce papers.
According to court records, Monique served her estranged husband with the divorce papers on July 28th. The law in Florida states that the defendant has 30 days to respond to the divorce. However, Timbaland has still not filed his response in the divorce and has decided to blow off the entire situation.
Monique then headed back to court on September 3rd, demanding the court grant her a default in the divorce and award her the support she asked for in her petition. The judge in the case granted Monique her request for default shortly after her filing.
However, Timbaland finally realized the divorce was real and he headed to court on September 25th. The music mogul filed docs in the case asking the judge to vacate the default that was granted … meaning he will now be filing his response to his estranged wife’s petition for divorce.
The judge granted Timbaland’s request and vacated the default on October 8th.
The music producer will now have to respond to Monique’s divorce and deal with the case or the judge will grant his wife’s demands for child support and alimony without Timberland having a say in the amount awarded.
