Amber Rose-Wiz Khalifa split not amicable

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are now engaged in a blame game weeks after their divorce went public, a report by the Mail Online stated on September 27.

According to the report, the 30-year-old model filed for divorce the day after she caught him with another woman. However, the rap artist said he was not cheating, as he made it clear to Amber that their marriage was over weeks before she filed for divorce.

The divorce papers stated the model is seeking full custody of their one-year-old son, although Whiz Khalifa countered the claim by asking the court to grant him joint custody.
