Wiz Khalifa broke out in the hip-hop world years ago with “Black and Yellow,” but his recent divorce proceedings see him saving his green thanks to a pre-nuptial agreement.
The Pittsburgh rapper has been dealing with a high-profile separation from Amber Rose, whose real name is Amber Levonchuck. Both parties seem to be pleased with the end result as they celebrated the divorce at a strip club, per TMZ.
The pre-nuptial agreement called for Ms. Rose, a famous feminist as well as author, model and fashion designer, to receive $1 million dollars. The judge followed the agreement down to the letter on that issue. Thus, Khalifa must pay Rose $644,000 as he has already turned over $356,000.
The rapper-turned-businessman—his line of rolling papers appear to be quite popular on Amazon.com, garnering 4+ star ratings—didn’t leave the marriage in dire straits. The judge determined he would keep a house in Pennsylvania along with 10 valuable cars. TMZ listed a Porsche, a 1968 Camaro and two Impalas among the vehicles.
It should be noted that a pre-nuptial agreement cannot override child support obligations. The two will have joint physical and legal custody over their young son, but Khalifa must pay $14,800 a month in child support to Rose.
The courts do not allow couples to determine these matters in such agreements. It is against public policy, per Jonathan E. Fields in a piece written for the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, to include “provisions that seek to dictate the custody of a child or a parenting schedule unless the disposition is also in the best interests of the child.”
Whatever the case may be, the split seems to be quite amicable, making the separation process easier on the child and reducing lawyer fees.
