Seeks Spousal Support Of $30,000 Per Month After Divorce With Husband
The couple's separation looked as amicable it could get when they announced their divorce back in February. But with almost all divorce cases, they also had an ugly turn after Tisha asked for spousal support.
On account of new legal papers she filed in the court in September 2018, it has been revealed that she has asked for spousal support of more than $30,000 per month. She had all the facts stacked up in her statement saying that her husband earned more than $65,000 and she had no constant source of income.
Moreover, she had a weird argument to put up a strong case of spousal support of such a hefty sum. She revealed that her husband would be able to pay her that sum because his wardrobe alone cost more than a million. In her claims, she wrote that her husband had shirts worth more than $750,000 and argued someone who can maintain such a hefty wardrobe could easily grant her support.
Her ex-husband has yet to respond to the newest development on their divorce saga.
Tisha Campbell’s Husband Accused of Bankruptcy Scam
Tisha’s accusations about her husband hiding money ended up being true. As in December of 2018, he was allegedly accused by LA County of scamming the system and staged being broke.
It was revealed that during the bankruptcy filing in 2016 her husband intentionally hid revenue obtained from several sources. One of the sources also includes a $1.4M loan from Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith. He reportedly also hid his earnings from the clothing store and real estate investments.
After the discovery, the government officials have ordered to turn over any cash her ex-husband been hiding. Even Tisha herself has demanded the spousal support from Duane.
We hope Tisha will now finally receive her share of money as the bankruptcy scam has been upfronted.
