Big Boi Not Ready To Dish Out Major Bucks For Child Support

Posted By on February 21, 2014

Big Boi of Outkast and estranged wife are battling in court for child support and their pending divorce. Big Boi is reportedly not ready do give up and dish out a lot of money to his soon-to-be ex wife.

According to reports, the Atlanta rapper thinks that his soon-to-be ex wife is ver capable to make enough money to help support their child.

 It’s war between Big Boi and his estranged wife — the Outkast rapper does NOT want to shell out endless child support … claiming she’s perfectly capable of supporting herself. As we reported, Big Boi’s wife Sherlita Patton filed for divorce last year … demanding FULL custody of their minor child (they also have an 18-year-old). But Big Boi’s not about to cave — he just filed a response, saying their child would be better off with JOINT physical and legal custody. As for child support — Big Boi says he’s willing to pay whatever the State of Georgia deems appropriate … no more, no less … because Patton’s young, healthy, and well-educated … which means she can support herself.

Details on the couple getting a divorce started popping up online back in October.
