Money was no object for Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane when he married model Keyshia Ka’oir last year, and now ex Sheena Evans is looking for her fair share, filing court documents for an increase in child support to the tune of $20,000 per month.
The Blast reports Evans and Gucci reached a custody and support agreement over 11-year-old son, Keitheon, in 2011. The “Lemonade” rapper was ordered to pay $2,026 per month based on his $24K monthly salary.
Evans now argues there has been a “significant change in circumstances” since they reached the 2011 agreement, saying their son requires a caretaker throughout the day, leaving her unable to work or go to school. She also claims since Gucci’s 2016 release from prison, he’s thrived enough financially to afford a $1.7M wedding, so she knows he can afford to provide more than $2,000 a month. She also takes exception to Gucci’s lavish spending on excessive jewelry.
Sheena is demanding Gucci’s child support be raised to $20K and for him to take out a $5M life insurance policy. She is also looking for him to pay for her $15K attorney fees. A judge has yet to rule.
The trap rapper and cosmetics entrepreneur wed in a $1.7M Miami ceremony last fall, filming a 10-part special, Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event, for BET. The reception came with a massive $75,000 wedding cake that required three months of planning, three days of baking, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and 2,500 Swarovski crystals, according to PEOPLE.
