mase and wife

*Does former, er, sometime rapper and pastor, Mase seem a tad confused about things?

He seems to be a little iffy on a lot of things. He doesn’t exactly come off as someone who should be leading a flock of followers.

Case in point … the rapper/pastor put the word out his divorce is off and his marriage — which has become the backbone of his empire — is rock solid again.  Only problem is … it’s just not true.

According to TMZ, the divorce is still moving forward.  As we reported, Mase filed for divorce back in January and it looked really nasty.  He was asking for full custody of the 2 kids he had with wife Twyla.  But weeks later he dropped the divorce case.

TMZ did some digging and found the day after Mase filed in Atlanta, Twyla filed for legal separation in San Diego.  Mase filed his response by amping things up … asking for a full-blown divorce.

Additionally, in Mase’s San Diego legal documents he claims they’ve been separated since May, 2012.  That means for 2 years Mase and Twyla engaged in a giant charade, sermonizing and selling books about marriage while they weren’t really together.

The divorce is not only on, it’s super nasty. They’re both asking for physical custody of the kids.  She also wants spousal and child support and he’s trying to shut that down.
