Big Boi to Estranged Wife


2/20/2014 9:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Force them to work and not get a degree of living off child support. They get a degree by opening their legs and after 9 months, they get a degree of child support lol

If Eleanor Roosevelt were alive we wouldn't have all these problems. She inspired millions when she was around. We wouldn't have stupid c*nts trying to take money like this. We wouldn't have di*ks marrying *unts. The world would be a better place if you ask me.

What is it with all these dead beat rappers. They have no problem have multiple lids( usually with multiple woman) and then as soon as the monthers of their kids want child support these s***bags, turn into complete douc$bags and have the nerve to say get a job. If you had the kid and wanted a divorce, guess what, stop being a complete A$$hole and pay up. It hard to have sympathy when it seems like they all use the same excuses for their bad behavior...... Keep it in your pants and you won't have the problem in the first place, dumbass.....

C'mon fellow commentors, he never daid he wont pay. He's more than willing to do so. And its not his babymama or jump off, its his wife. And she has an education, thats why he told her to get a job. Lets not stereotype just bc these are black folk.

Get a job!? Are you freakin' kidding!? Once they get pregnant, that is the end of working...if she marries a guy with money.

Big Boi... really? These rappers think they're so original by adding z to every word or just engaging in ignorant misspelling exercises!

Good luck getting child support from this genius, yeah they all say they're willing to pay, let's see...

According to what I read, he just doesn't want to pay alimony to her. I have no problem with that, so long as he's willing to support his child financially. And that he recognizes there IS a difference between alimony and child support. Many men seem to miss the distinction.

I'm kind of confused. I thought a "BOI" was a gay man. Is he gay? What about him having a wife?

Well his request sounds reasonable t m z.

TMZ should at least do a google search on her before printhing these headlines, she is part owner to a sucessful boutique. He said he will pay CS but not spousal, seems fair to me.
