After a rocky start at Coachella, Outkast has gained momentum and achieved rave reviews for their reunion tour. As reported at accessatlanta.com:
After selling out their first hometown show and then adding a second (also sold out), Atlanta's Outkast has now posted a third concert at Centennial Olympic Park.
Keep reading for a recap of the messy details of Big Boi's divorce and what may have caused it!
Antwon "Big Boi" Patton of Outkast, recently filed legal papers that made it clear that he wants future child support payments to be STRICTLY for his 13-year-old son and not for supporting the lifestyle of his estranged wife, Sherlita M. Patton. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Sherlita and Big Boi got married in February 2002 and Sherlita filed for divorce on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013. The divorce complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, claims that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Sherlita is seeking alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees. According to the filing, Antwon and Sherlita Patton have two children, ages 18 and 12, and she is also asking for sole custody of the younger child and corresponding child support. Straightfromthea.com reports Sherlita has retained Usher Raymond’s divorce lawyer.
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.
According to sandrarose.com, this is the second (or third) separation for the couple, who had marriage problems in the past due to Big Boi’s alleged infidelities. It was confirmed years ago that Big Boi fathered a son, Bamboo, with another woman who is allegedly a stripper. Friends believe Sherlita delayed filing divorce papers for the sake of her children. But now that the kids are grown, she is moving on with her life.
BUUUUUUUT....according to this HSK Exclusive
Less than six-degrees of separation may lie between one-half of Outkast and a former member of that 90′s group Xscape. That’s because we’re told Kandi Burruss’ baby daddy smashed Big Boi’s wife!
A source tells HSK, after Antwan André ‘Big Boi’ Patton got wind of the affair Sherlita Patton was having with former President of Bad Boy Records South, Russell “Block” Spencer, he pulled funding for wifey’s ‘P Valentine‘ ATL ladies boutique!
But the money he pulled from financing wifey’s business may have all went straight into the pockets of one Magic City stripper. That’s because sources say Big Boi (aka Mr. Pot Calling the Kettle Black) was cheating on Sherlita with a stripper named ‘Chase’. We’re told the St. Louis native now has Big Boi to thank for sending her to real estate school AND buying her a house!!!
Here’s the drop: Big Boi had a concert somewhere in Europe, and he took Chase and all her girlfriends to celebrate her birthday. I don’t blame Sherlita for cheating on him.”
