R&b Star Ginuwine Has Quietly Agreed To His Estranged Wife Sole's Divorce Terms, Ending The Couple's 12-Year Marriage.
The couple was rumoured to have split and filed for divorce late last year (14), but former rapper-turned-yoga instructor Tonya 'Sole' Johnston didn't move to legally end the union until April (15), when she filed court papers, revealing she and her soon-to-be ex had been living separately since 2013.
The documents included a settlement between the pair, with Ginuwine agreeing to pay Sole $3,000 (£1,875)-a-month in child support for their two daughters, Story, 14, and 12-year-old Dream.
The singer, real name Elgin Lumpkin, will also hand over a lump sum of $150,000 (£93,750) when Sole moves out of their marital home in Maryland. She will take ownership of the pair's other house in Kansas City, Missouri, according to Bossip.com.
Neither Ginuwine nor Sole have asked for alimony, and the Pony hitmaker insists everything was worked out amicably.
He tells Bossip, "I really don't want to get into it, but we're good. We're friends and we're good. We're going to raise our kids separately and we're good."
The news of the divorce terms emerges seven months after Ginuwine's lawyer revealed the star was on the verge of bankruptcy. The admission was made during a court hearing in New York City in November (14) as part of a legal battle with music producer Robert Reives - the brains behind the R&B veteran's 1996 debut album, Ginuwine... The Bachelor.
The singer was awarded as much as $250,000 (£156,250) in royalties and interest after a judge ruled in his favour in February (15).
