Celebrity Divorce Chronicles: Sonya Miller vs. Percy “Master P” Miller

Although news of the Miller vs. Miller divorce is nothing new – Sonya Miller filed for divorce against the rapper back in October 2013 – the recent developments in the couple’s divorce proceedings reveal how extensive assets and the lack of a prenup or premarital agreement can further complicate the divorce process.

According news celebrity news outlets, Yahoo Music and TMZ, in a recent document filed with the court, Sonya Miller, Master P’s estranged wife, claims that the rapper has around $178 million in assets, and is seeking an award of 37%, or around $66 million, of her estranged husband’s fortune. In the document Sonya Miller filed with the court, which is likely similar to Georgia’s Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit, Mrs. Miller listed the artist’s assets as including:

  • 31 real estate properties, including properties in Los Angeles, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Houston, Georgia and Tennessee, with a combined value of $19 million;
  • Various business entities, such as No Limit Records, Master P, Inc. and No Limit Forever, LLC, valued at around $136 million;
  • 13 cars, including Cadillac Escalades, Mercedes, a Rolls-Royce, BMW, and Porsche, among others, totaling around $235,000 in value;
  • Furniture, such as three chandeliers valued at around $300,000 a piece; and,
  • Various items of  jewelry

As mentioned above, of the rapper’s estimated $178 million in assets, Sonya Miller is seeking around $66 million. Because the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, likely due to the fact that the couple married more than 24 years ago, before Master P began enjoying success as an entertainer. Although the lack of a prenup and the length of the couple’s marriage may not necessarily be beneficial to the rapper, they may turn out to be factors that weigh in Mrs. Miller’s favor as the California court presiding over the divorce matter determines how the couple’s community assets should be divided. The couple’s divorce has been pending since October 2013, and in light of Mrs. Miller’s recent court filings and the amount of assets at stake, there will likely be no resolution to this dissolution in the near future.
