Sonya C, also known as Sonya Miller, is a Richmond, California-based female rapper. She is best known as Master P’s ex-wife. The couple married in 1989 and have seven children together, including Tytyana.
They made headlines in 2013 when Sonya C filed for divorce, sparking a rumored bitter custody battle over financial assets. According to Master P, the couple settled their differences privately in 2016, but nothing ever went to court.
Sonya C Early Life
Sonya C was raised in the United States by her African-American parents, about whom little is known because she respects their privacy; some of her fans believe her father was a mailman and her mother was a maid.
Most people believe she is an only child because she hasn’t mentioned her siblings.
Why did Master P and Sonya divorce?
The couple married for the first time in 1989 and were married for over 20 years. However, the couple made headlines in 2013 when Sonya C filed for divorce, resulting in a reportedly bitter financial dispute.
According to TMZ at the time, the estranged wife demanded a $67 million divorce settlement, claiming she was entitled to a portion of the rapper’s fortune. Miller’s alleged drug and alcohol use is said to have contributed to the couple’s breakup. According to sources, Master P believed it was having a negative impact on their children.
“I take great care of all of my kids, all of their needs are met in abundance,”
The rapper said in a public statement addressing their divorce in 2014.
I’m from the ghetto, I changed my life, but she refused to grow with me, so we’re not together.”
According to Master P, the couple eventually settled their differences privately in 2016, but nothing ever went to court. Five years later, the artist filed paperwork requesting that a judge declare him legally single. This was allegedly confirmed in May 2022, just weeks before his daughter Tytyana’s tragic death.
On The Wendy Williams Show, Master P discussed their split, saying, “In a relationship, things happen.”
People grow together and apart.
“She was definitely present. We haven’t had a relationship in seven years… I’m not upset with her. “I adore her.”
