    Afeni Shakur, mother of Tupac Shakur, is getting divorced, and her husband wants a piece of Tupac’s financial pie as part of the divorce.

    Gust Davis, her husband of 12 years, wants to continue living in their 50 acre North Carolina ranch. He also wants to keep the houseboats and his Jag.

    Davis is also asking for alimony, pointing to the $20,000 per month after expenses that Afeni receives from Tupac. He wants to see
    $10,000 of that money every month for the rest o f his life.

    Lest we forget! Tupac was an admitted crack dealer, who was convicted of sexually assaulting an Afrikan woman!!! So he had talent, a lot of psychos do! Evidently the x is not Tupac's biological father. Unless he adopted Tupac I doubt if he could win in court.

    Why are you surprised? When folks divorce... unless they sign a prenup, they are entitled to some of their ex's money. Doesn't matter where the money came from.

    I think Afeni lived in Cali, a Community Property State. If so, these are the rules that apply:

    Community Property States
    If you live in a community property state, the rules are more complicated. But in general:

    • spouses own equally almost all property either one acquires during the marriage, regardless of whose name the property is in
    • half of each spouse's income is owned by the other spouse during the marriage, and
    • debts incurred during marriage are generally debts of the couple.
    In community property states, the following is separate property:

    • gifts given to one spouse
    • property either spouse owned before the marriage and kept separate during the marriage, and
    • inheritances.

    But, I do think monies that are "co-mingled" become community property, no matter how they were obtained. JMO

    He could argue that he got used to the lifestyle that her money afforded them as a couple and he shouldn't have to lose said lifestyle.

    I think the issue here is, folks feel some kind of way about the husband getting money from his wife....

    There are two kinds of marital assets. Community Property and Separate Property. In court, he will have to prove that the monies were Community Property.

    I think her biggest problem will be co-mingling funds. As long as she kept her inheritance separate, it's all hers. But, if she set up joint accounts with him, etc., that money will be deemed community property, and he will be entitled to half. If she only gave him "gifts", the other money is not community property.
