DJ Mustard To Pay $18K To Ex-Wife In Child Support After She Asks For $80K A Month
Mustard reached an agreement with his ex-wife Chanel Thierry in child support after she asked for $80K a month. According to Radar Online, the producer will pay $18,342 in temporary child support, which begins this February. The couple informed the court of their decision on Jan. 31st.
Mustard and Chanel share three children together, Kiylan, Kauner and Kody. Though the 32-year-old producer began dating Thierry since they were 19 years old, they got engaged in 2018 before tying the knot in 2020. Last May, Mustard revealed he and Chanel filed for divorce.
Chanel’s initially asked the court for $80K a month in child support. She told the court that there’s a prenup in place that requires Mustard to pay an additional $35K in spousal support. On top of that, she wants Mustard to cough up $40K to cover her legal fees.
Though Mustard undoubtedly secured a win when the judge ruled that he should be $18,342 monthly to Thierry, she might have her way in the future. The temporary child support payments should hold her over until their next child support hearing. The couple told the court they agreed to postpone the hearing to another day.
Thierry said $80K a month is reasonable for child support, especially after a “forensic evaluation” of Mustard’s finances. Her attorneys reviewed Mustard’s earnings and determined he raked in $10M in 2020. Her sworn declaration states “is a successful American Record Producer who makes an extraordinarily high living wage.” Additionally, it states Mustard “has more than enough income to pay for both his and my attorney fees.”
Mustard and Thierry’s divorce spilled into the public eye on more than one occasion. Last year, Thierry called out Mustard on Instagram for not paying any child support. “These men be so bitter after they leave. How u mad at me for stepping after you left me,” Thierry wrote on Instagram in November. “Not paying me child support or alimony to purposefully spite me. After I already signed a prenup.”
