Sadly there is another divorce in the celebrity world. After being married for a decade, Mike Epps is filing for divorce from Mechelle Epps. Mike filed divorce documents on Tuesday in Los Angeles; it is rumored that the couple has been separated since last summer.
It must really go down in the DM! Six months ago, Mike was caught flirting with a woman on Twitter, asking her to DM him. However, his wife Mechelle quickly tweeted the eyes emoji letting them know she was watching. That tweet may be one of the many issues the couple is facing right now.
TMZ caught up with Mechelle at LAX and she stated that the divorce was shocking, and that it was not mutual. She also let TMZ know that Mike put into the divorce documents that they have been separated since last summer, but they were in a relationship up until January.
“It was shocking to me,” Mechelle told TMZ. “I didn’t know we were separated since the summer time. We’ve been doing everything a married couple does up until January.”
Mechelle believes another woman is involved because she saw her husband walking down the streets of New York with a mystery woman. In the end, Mechelle wants everyone to know that she was a loyal wife, and although they had issues, she stuck by his side.
“It’s hard because you think you’re in a relationship and being loyal to that person and you think loyalty will always win, but people are people. Fame gets to their head, you just never know.”
There are always two sides to a story. Mike asked for joint custody of their two children Maddie, 8, and Mariah, 10. Hopefully, they can work everything out and have an amicable divorce for the sake of their children. Check out the video of Mechelle discussing the divorce with TMZ below!
