Mos Def appeared in court on Feb. 14 after filing for divorce from his wife, Maria Yepes-Smith. Mos Def, born Dante Smith, was ordered to pay $10,000 a month to support their 7- and 8-year-old daughters. Mos Def has paid roughly $8000 a month since the order was issued, but said obligations to his three other children and other business issues prevented him from making the court ordered payments. Mos Def also argued that his payments should be reduced because Yepes-Smith reneged on an agreement to home school the children. “I’m the only person who’s providing for my children,” Mos Def told Judge Sarah Krauss. His ex wife said he has a new movie coming out called 16 Blocks with Bruce Willis so he hould be able to afford it.
