Timbaland Getting Divorced

According to TMZ, Timbaland is getting divorced. And his wife Monique Mosley actually wants him to pay for a child he didn’t even father.

In addition to their 5-year-old daughter, Monique has a 10-year-old from a previous relationship. But she considers Timbaland to be the father as well, apparently. Monique’s reasoning is that Timbaland has “”publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.”

Monique also wants alimony, life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp and other expenses. Claiming she is broke, she also wants Timbaland to pay the attorney fees.

In the alimony department, she says she wants money while divorce proceedings are pending, she wants a lump sum, she wants “rehabilitative alimony,” and permanent alimony.

That is a LOT of alimony, child support, spousal support, etc. But when you marry a celebrity you might be able to get away with these requests. We’ll see.


Laura Dern and Ben Harper Divorcing

Laura Dern and Ben Harper have finally decided to go through with a divorce.  They encountered doubts about their relationship since 2010.  They have been married since 2005 and have 2 children together.  In 2010, Harper blindsided Dern with divorce papers.  A reconciliation was in process but Dern reinstated the divorce papers in 2012.  According to US magazine, Dern filed a formal legal response to Harper’s divorce petition in LA County Superior Court.

In her petition, Dern demanded that she be granted primary custody of their 2 children.    Dern hired “Disso Queen” Laura Wasser to prepare the documents that asks for primary physical custody of the couple’s children for Dern and joint legal custody.  In addition to custody of the children, Dern is also seeking spousal support, child support, and attorney’s fees.  Her attorney notes, “ Dern is already the primary caregiver for the couple’s two kids” and should be given full custody of her children.  Harper cited irreconcilable differences in the filing and asked that spousal support be denied to Dean.  He encourages that the custody of their children be shared between the both of them.

After a year of attempting to repair their marriage after a year, it was time to finalize the divorce.  The divorce petition was signed off in Los Angeles Superior Court and the terms of the divorce are confidential.
