Mike Epps' Divorce From Mechelle McCain Epps After 12 Years of Marriage is Finalized
Mike Epps is finally a single man, after finalizing his divorce with Mechelle after 11 years together. However, 46-year-old actor will be paying a heft amount of spousal and child support!

Epps will pay Mechelle spousal support of $25,000 a month for the next six and a half years unless she remarries. The comedian also will pay Mechelle $15,000 a month in child support for their two children as well as their private school education.

The divorce settlement allows Epps to keep 10 properties in Indiana. The former couple will sell their home in Los Angeles and split the profits. 

In addition, Mike will keep his 2016 Mercedes, 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 1979 Cadillac and 2011 Suzuki motorcycle.

The legal documents show that Mechelle will keep a 2014 Bentley, 2013 Mercedes, 2015 Toyota Prius, and a 2013 Land Rover.

Mike and Mechelle will split royalties from Epps's film and TV roles, which includes "The Hangover," "Hancock," and "Girl Trip."

Mike filed for divorce early last year, with Mechelle responding by requesting $109,000 a month in spousal support for her troubles. 
The actor's estranged wife told TMZ that she was "blindsided" by their split and blamed their split on infidelity. 

Mechelle told TMZ "It was shocking to me, I didn't know we were separated since the summer time. We've been doing everything a married couple does up until January."

She went on to claim that Epps was unfaithful to her and that she decided to part ways when she saw him walking around with a random woman.

The former couple agreed to joint legal custody of their young daughters, Mariah and Maddie. They are still working out the physical custody arrangement for the girls.

Epps also has daughters Bria, 24, and Makayla, 17, from previous relationships.

Mike and Mechelle met on the set of "The Fighting Temptations" in 2003. They tied the knot in 2006. 

Epps has already moved on and is currently in a relationship with television executive Kyra Robinson.

Epps is currently on a comedy tour, which kicks off Friday in Denver and is followed by shows in New York, Alabama and California.

The comedian started his career on the 1995 Def Comedy Jam series on HBO.

Epps has since gained dozens of film credits and several television gigs, including hosting the BET Hip Hop Awards from 2009 to 2012.

#MikeEpps and his wife of 12 years, Mechelle, are officially divorced. According to reports, the 46-year-old comedian will pay $25k a month in #spousalsupport for a total of 6 1/2 years. However, payment will stop if she remarries.
