MC Lyte is officially divorced and gets to take her things with her. The rapper’s divorce from entrepreneur and former Marine John Wyche became final this week after initially filing in 2020. According to the divorce documents, the rapper will walk away with full ownership of her music catalog.
The Blast reports that the rapper, whose legal name is Lana Michele Moorer, was protected under the prenup the couple signed in 2017.
The outlet added the divorce decree revealed the rapper would retain ownership of other creative property, including royalties connected to her creative works and everything she owned before her short marriage to Wyche.
The legal documents from the divorce outline specifically what MC Lyte gets to keep in the divorce, including “jewelry, watches, and personal effects in her possession, custody, or control, and earnings and accumulations before the date of marriage, during the marriage, and post-separation, her Subaru, financial accounts in her name, all furniture, furnishings, and other personal property in her possession, custody, or control. She also gets to keep her term life insurance policy.”
Wyche will also not receive spousal support from Lyte.
The couple met on Match.com and were married in a low-key ceremony in Jamacia in Aug. 2017.
