Xzibit’s ex-wife, Krista Joiner, is requesting an increase in child support while claiming the rapper hasn’t visited their son in six months. Xzibit currently pays his ex-wife $6,000 a month in overall support. $2,239 comes by way of child support while another $3,702 a month is for temporary spousal support. He is to pay out the child support until their 12-year-old son turns 18. According to court documents obtained by Radar, Krista wants the total to increase to $14,000.
“I believe the last time he actually saw Gatlyn was around [Xzibit’s] own birthday in September 2022,” the documents read. “Gatlyn called [Xzibit] on Christmas and [Xzibit] refused to answer or call him back. Our son is devastated.”
Afterward, she explained that tax documents show Xzibit is actually earning $45,000 a month, despite claiming to only earn $25,000 a month. She also says Xzibit stopped making Gatlyn’s tuition payments for school. Without the support, Krista says her family and friends have had to lend them funds. She further accuses Xzibit of refusing to pay for their health insurance.
“Meanwhile, we see on [Xzibit’s] social media posts that he is frequently on tour in exotic countries like Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Australia, and New Zealand, only in the last few months,” Krista said.
In his initial arguments, Xzibit requested the judge not award Krista any spousal support. He claimed to be financially struggling to due issues caused by the pandemic. In response, Krista cited the rapper’s brother, Jason. Jason allegedly told her Xzibit makes over $1 million a month from his cannabis business. Xzibit labeled Joiner’s claims “bullshit” in a since-deleted Instagram post. He added that “there will be blood” on her hands for spreading the rumors.
Krista filed for divorce from Xzibit back in 2021. They had been together since 2001 and married in 2014. They shared two children together: Xavier and Gatlyn. Tragically, Xavier passed away just eleven days after he was born after being born prematurely. Xzibit also has another son, Tremaine, from a previous relationship.
