Kurupt and his estranged wife Jovan Brown (also known by her stage name Gail Gotti) are reportedly expected in court next month.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Brown is seeking $14,000 per month in spousal support, $40,000 in attorney’s fees and a 50 percent stake of ownership in all the companies she says she managed for the rapper, including their shared cannabis line Moonrock.
The most eye-opening revelation comes from Brown who says her husband walked out on her after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
“Our separation definitely hurt, as I could not understand how after 17 years he left me in my time of need when I needed his support and love the most,” she reportedly states in the documents.
“Before [Kurupt] left our relationship, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Although I earned a salary prior to separation and [he] knew I needed the money, when I asked [Kurupt] to assist me with my treatment, he responded ‘go get a regular job’ and I should ‘get a boyfriend to help me pay for my treatments.’”
She added that Kurupt told her he has a new woman and family to support.
Brown alleges Tha Dogg Pound OG suffers from substance abuse issues, which led him to become verbally and mentally abusive.
When Brown first met Kurupt, she says he was still a broke rapper and living in homes owned by his mother. She also said they didn’t have a car for years and struggled to make ends meet.
Brown filed for divorce last year after 11 years of marriage.
