The rapper born Cameron Jibril Thomaz filed a countersuit to Amber’s divorce petition in a Los Angeles court asking for joint physical custody and visitation rights of their 2-year old son, Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz.
According to a source close to the couple, Wiz and his wife—who recently dedicated a special twerk for his first #1 album— “have had marital issues for some time now.”
"They cared very much for each other but it all happened so fast between having the baby and getting married,” the source told E! News. “They really did not know each other as much as they should have before getting married. They both have not had the best pasts with relationships and when they met each other it was more lust at first sight than love at first sight."
The couple has a prenuptial agreement in place that will provide Amber a one-time payment north of $1 million and spousal support of more than $5,000 per month.
California is a no-fault state and the judge that will preside over the case will make his or her custody decision based solely on what is best for the child. In the Golden State, no preference is given to the mother or the father; both parents are given equal consideration.
When news of Amber’s divorce filing first broke, the Twitterverse jumped to the conclusion that she committed adultery with new manager Nick Cannon. The blonde bombshell then issued a formal statement refuting those rumors.
"Please stop with the fake stories," she tweeted. "I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years I think u guys know this…. Unfortunately now my ex husband can't say the same…I'm devastated and crushed but my main focus is Sebastian. Thank u all for the support in this difficult time."
