*It’s been almost a decade wince Missy Elliott released her last album, “The Cookbook,” in 2005, but she’s not worried about the long absence affecting her career.
In an interview with Yahoo’s “Yo Show,” she said the time hasn’t been right to drop another album.
“When I create something, it’s got to be special,” she said. “And it can’t just be to throw something out there because I feel like I’m Missy.”
“I don’t throw out just microwave records,” she added. (Watch the entire interview below.)
*Timbaland’s marriage has come to what could be a very expensive end.
The famed music producer’s wife, Monique Mosley, has filed for divorce after five years of marriage and is requesting a large sum of money from her soon-to-be ex-husband, TMZ reports.
According to documents obtained by the website, Mosley is asking for child support not just for her 5-year-old daughter with Timbaland, but also for her 10-year-old child from a previous relationship. She reasons that the rapper has “publicly and privately proclaimed this child as his own.”
Additionally, Mosley is requesting life insurance, alimony, and money for private schooling, vacations, and summer camp.
Per TMZ, she’s also asking her ex to cover her legal expenses and wants “rehabilitative alimony” as well as permanent alimony.
The wedding day
Timbaland, 41, and Mosley — together for 10 years, married for five — welcomed daughter Reign in 2007. He also has two sons, Demetrius and Frankie, from a previous relationship.
