The other day it was reported that Master P’s estranged wife is claiming in new court documents that she had to get on welfare to support herself financially since she decided to divorce her longtime husband.

But now Master P is clapping back at her claims and he says in a statement to Plugged Entertainment Magazine that her claims couldn’t be further from the truth.

He says:

“Why is this news? I haven’t been with this person in over 7 years. She has had several boyfriends since then. He continues, “I take great care of all of my kids, all of their needs are being met in an abundance. I come from the ghetto, I changed my life but she didn’t want to grow with me so were not together. If Sonya supposedly helped me start any of my companies including No Limit, wouldn’t she be capable of creating some type of income in the last seven years besides turning to welfare?”

“Educated business people don’t think like that even in hard times. Stevie Wonder could see through this publicity stunt. This is hilarious. All I ask is that she take a drug test in the next two weeks and pass it. I will give her everything I have. The four minors she says she needs help with, three of them are with me, this makes no sense. I’m tired of sugarcoating and hiding the truth of ungrateful people that I’ve been taking care of for so many years. If she’s that great of a businesswoman like she claims, she should be able to do it again for herself.”


He then calls his estranged wife Sonya Miller ungrateful:

“I don’t trip on my past success. Even through the rebuilding stages in my life, I never blamed anybody. I just figured it out and worked harder. I put my trust in God, not people. You can expect people to take shots at you but I never imagined the people you take care of to turn on you.

“I can see why wealthy people leave their money to charity because there are so many ungrateful, unappreciative family members that feel entitled even when they haven’t contributed. When things are going good, everybody loves you, but when things aren’t so good, you see the real in people and even in relationships. I’m not mad at her though. I’ll just pray for her, she will always be the mother of my children. I’m not perfect but I go above and beyond to provide for my kids and family.”



Master P’s son Romeo Miller (rapper/actor Lil Romeo) also defended his father in his own statement to the publication:

“My father is a good man, my parents are not together but he still provides a roof, transportation and all of her living expenses. Honestly, she gives me the bills and I hand them over to him and he takes care of it. She is blessed, she lives in a guard-gated community and drives luxury vehicles. Its funny how people jump on negative media and gossip instead of all the positive things that my father does for underprivileged kids in communities across the U.S. That’s okay though, the enemy doesn’t try to stop you from where you’re at, but where you’re going. We must be going into even bigger success. Miller Dynasty, No Limit Forever.”


  1. There’s three sides to every story. Hers, his, and the truth. The truth is always somewhere in the middle.

  2. Wow. Well he has his right to tell his side. I do hope they work out their issues and can separate in a mature manner.

  3. Whatever I feel like something is missing from this story. But I will say I bet you he ain’t giving her what she is entitled to legally. She was with him before the riches and during the height. She should get a lot legally speaking. But I will say as a woman if you are going to depend on a man and not have your own you better start stashing for real. She should have been putting money away years ago. No way she should be depending on anybody. His daughter Cymphonique isn’t her daughter and she is like 16 or 17 so they probably haven’t been together for awhile. They should have divorced a long time ago.

  4. These pathetic women who feel they are entitled after years of not being with the man make me sick. As long as those kids are taken care of forget her.
