Mase

My Wife & I Can Fix Your Broken Marriage

But First, I Want a Divorce

How's this for ironic -- rapper-turned-pastor Mase -- who built a lucrative church and related business partly on his secrets to a successful marriage -- secretly filed for divorce from his pastor wife.

TMZ has obtained Mase's divorce filing in Georgia dated January 2nd, citing irreconcilable differences with Twyla Betha. And it sounded nasty ... Mase asked for full custody of their two kids and even wanted HER to pay HIM child support.

He claims they separated August 2013 -- after 12 years of marriage.

But just over a month later -- the day before Valentine's Day -- Mase inexplicably had a change of heart, filing to dismiss his divorce petition.

The fiasco is priceless -- if you look at the website for Mase's El Elyon International Church in Atlanta ... the entire thing is built around his successful relationship with his wife. The two even hawk their "successful marriage" book series called "What Do You Do After I Do?"

And the book description is perfect: "In this series, Mason and Twyla Betha share keys to build a marriage that will last a lifetime."

Define "lifetime."

We reached out to the Mase and his church ... radio silence.

I'm glad they are trying to work it out. I'm shocked that Mase still has a church. I thought he was trying to rap again.

He better just sit his ass at home and figure out how to make it work. If he really believes in what he preaches, then he would know that marriage is "for better or for worse". When you marry someone, you're making a vow to God and your partner that you aren't going to walk out when things become less than perfect(unless the person is abusive or a repeated cheater). What really gets me is that he was actually going to go for full custody. Good luck with that one, buddy. If your wife is also a pastor with a clean record, she will most likely be given the kids and will laugh all the way to the bank when you're paying her every month. Judges aren't so inclined to take children away from their mothers unless it's absolutely necessary.

I read his book Revelation- There's A Light After The Lime. Excellent reading, he writes about changing his life, ups and downs. They're only human. Nobodies perfect, he knows this. What's the story? -Life-
