According to reports by TMZ released on July 24, Xzibit’s estranged wife, Krista Joiner, claimed that Xzibit lied about his income to avoid paying spousal support. In legal documents reported by TMZ, Xzibit’s brother said that the former Pimp My Ride host brings in over $1 million a month in his cannabis ventures and stores and keeps the cash in “bank-sized vaults.”
She claimed that his estranged sibling said that “he stored $20 million for Xzibit in various vaults and brings X cash on demand.”
Joiner denied the accusations that the rapper made about her. He claimed that Joiner leased a 2021 Bentley and continued living in a large home with her current lover. Joiner retorted, according to documents, that she’s struggling financially. His ex also said that “she recently lost her job and has no earnings to support herself or their son.
Xzibit has been allegedly ignoring his estranged wife’s requests for gas money, food and haircuts for their son, and she had to go through attorneys to beg X to pay for their kid’s inhalers.
Painting a contrasting picture, Xzibit said, “[I’m] struggling to make ends meet at the same time trying to uphold being a public figure, pay my expenses and provide for my son.”
The claims come weeks after Xzibit called out Viacom for making big money with him as the host and using his music before cutting him out of the show to keep from paying him.
He wrote, “While I’m at it, hey @viacom_intl, why is it you’ve made millions off the show #PimpMyRide I carried on my back and found ways to cut me out?” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Like saying I would get percentages of all merch sold, let alone streaming(which wasn’t even in the contract) and putting in the fine print ‘with my name and likeness’ then proceed to take my ‘name and likeness’ off of ALL the merchandise including DVD sales after season 1?”
