Timbaland's wife files for divorce from music producer

Timbaland and his wife are reportedly heading toward divorce, and his wife is asking him to pay child support for both her children, one of whom the producer didn't father.

Monique Mosley, who has been married to the Grammy-winning music producer for five years, is asking for quite a bit of cash too, TMZ and E! News report.

In the documents filed by Timbaland's soon-to-be-ex-wife, she indicates that the couple have been together for 10 years. They have a 5-year-old daughter together, Reign, and Mosley has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship. (Timbaland also has two sons from a previous relationship, Demetrius and Frankie.)

Mosley wants alimony plus money for life insurance, private school, vacations, summer camp and other expenses, TMZ reported, and she wants it for both children since she asserts that the "Carry Out" hitmaker has "publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own" and that's reason enough for him to front the cash for both kids.

Timbaland, 41, real name Timothy Mosley, has worked with Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, Ginuwine, Jay Z, Ludacris and Aaliyah. He is reportedly worth $80 million, and Mosley wants him to pay her lawyer's fees because she reportedly had to have a friend loan her money so she could pay her lawyer.

On top of that, she's asking for a lump sum of "rehabilitative alimony" while their divorce proceedings are pending, along with the permanent alimony she's hoping to be awarded.

Guess she just wants to stay "The Way I Are."
