Xzibit is unwilling to pay child support to his ex-wife, Krista Jonier, who lives with her new boyfriend in their home. The rapper recently responded to legal paperwork from Jonier asking for spousal support in their divorce, citing his deteriorating financial situation since most of his earnings were used up during the pandemic.
Xzibit reveals its current financial situation
The new documents mention that he is no longer the breadwinner, as he was before his divorce. He said he no longer works in Hollywood and has earned nothing from his cannabis businesses. Additionally, he lost a lot of money when his concerts were canceled due to COVID-19.
The entertainer said he struggled to make ends meet, even with his own and his son’s expenses. He then mentioned that his ex-wife was doing fine without spousal support, saying her recent income was almost $175,000 a year. Krista’s current boyfriend has previously landed X’s artwork and recorded plaques at the couple’s home.
X also said that Krista agreed to sell their house after their divorce in February 2022, but recently agreed to discharge the property. The home is valued at around $3,715,600 and the couple had to take out short term loans to pay the mortgage.
According to X, Krista acquired a new lease on a 2021 Bentley and signed it under his company, Xzibit Inc. He accused her of forging his name on a check for a deposit. He even asked her to return the Bentley as it was difficult for her to afford it and her insurance payments, but she refused to do so and hid the car for 8 months.
