George Clinton Divorce

Pay the Funk Up!

George Clinton
's estranged wife is down to divorce, but she's not down being left strapped for cash ... and she is asking a judge to order the funk legend to pay up, STAT.

Stephanie Clinton filed docs in Florida court last week -- as part of her divorce battle with George -- asking the court to grant her both temporary and permanent alimony.

Here's the problem ... George doesn't want to pony up ANY spousal support. He had previously claimed in divorce docs that the couple (married way back in 1990) has been separated for many years, shared no bank accounts, and has no real property together.

But in docs, Stephanie denies George's claims and has requested the funk master's finances (taxes, bank accounts etc.) be submitted to the court to determine how much dough she's entitled to after almost 23 years of matrimony.

A judge has yet to rule.
