Mike Epps may be reconsidering filing for divorce. The actor and comedian’s ex-wife is asking for $109,000 a month to maintain her lifestyle. 

Reports TMZ:

Mechelle Epps claims Mike makes $3.5 million a year, but recently cut her off from bank accounts and credit cards, leaving her high and dry with zero income. She says Mike never wanted her to work during their marriage, and now she can’t land a job because she’s too old at 36.

In the docs, Mechelle says she spends several thousand bucks a month on shoes and clothes for their 10 and 12-year-old girls. Plus, the girls have to get their hair braided at an “expensive salon” … not to mention food, vacations and $72k per year for private schooling.

Mechelle says her mom handles nanny duties for a mere $3,500 monthly, plus another $600 to cover Mom’s Mercedes.

In total, Mechelle is looking for $109,036 to cover her expenses, and she wants their home for herself. For those not so good at math, that’s a little over $1.3M a year.

Mind you, that’s over a third of what she thinks he makes, and probably before taxes—gotta pay those.

Is anger over this situation why he allegedly 2-pieced a fan in a casino? Cheaper to keep her.
