Reports allege that the rapper filed his legal documents a week after the two reportedly reached a divorce agreement; the agreement will not include payments from Carey’s upcoming Las Vegas residency deal. The couple, who married in April 2008 and separated in August 2013, share two children, twins Monroe and Morrocan.
