On May 3, 2022, TMZ exclusively reported that Mustard had filed for divorce from his wife of just over a year. According to the documents TMZ claimed they obtained, he filed the papers in a LA court.
He cited the usual "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for divorce and asked the court to grant them joint legal and physical custody of their three little ones.
