Reports say that rapper from the Dogg Pound, Kurupt, allegedly abandoned his estranged wife, Jovan Brown, last year after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Kurupt and Brown were together for 17 years. They divorced in 2017. He allegedly does not want to pay her medical bills and living expenses. Brown wants spousal support for medical and living expenses.
Brown said, “Our separation definitely hurt, as I could not understand how after 17 years he abruptly left me in my time of need when I needed his support and love the most. Before [Kurupt] left out relationship, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Although I earned a salary prior to separation and [he] knew I needed the money, when I asked [him] to assist me with my treatment, he responded ‘go get a regular job’ and I should ‘get a boyfriend to help me pay for my treatments.’”
Brown has requested $14,000 in monthly spousal support, $40,000 in lawyer’s fees and half-ownership of Kurupt’s companies. She added that he allegedly has substance abuse issues, which has made him become verbally and mentally abusive. A hearing is scheduled for July.
