Celebrity Divorce Chronicles: Amber Rose v. Wiz Khalifa

Only weeks after celebrating their one year anniversary, rapper Wiz Khalifa and model Amber Rose are seeking divorce. More accurately, according to celebrity news sites TMZ and E! News, Amber Rose (Amber Levonchuck) filed for a divorce from the rapper in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on or amount September 24, 2014.

Amber’s Petition for Divorce cited irreconcilable differences, and requests that the court grant her full legal and physical custody of the couple’s young son, Sebastian. Only days after Amber Rose filed her Petition, Wiz Khalifa (Cameron Jibril Thomaz) filed his Answer with the court. In his Answer, Wiz also based his desire for divorce on the couple’s irreconcilable differences and countered Amber’s request for full legal and physical custody with a request for joint custody with visitation rights. It is likely that child custody and child support will be the only disputed issues of the couple’s divorce, because the couple entered into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage, which determines the division of the couple’s property and grants Amber spousal support. At this point, there is no indication that either Amber or Wiz plan to challenge validity of the agreement. Thus, it is likely the presiding judge in their divorce will adopt the provisions of the agreement and incorporated it into the court’s final order of divorce.

Although the couple’s unexpected split is shrouded in rumors and speculation regarding possible infidelity on the part of both Amber and Wiz, neither party indicated infidelity as a cause for divorce in their legal filings, and neither party has officially confirmed the rumors.
