Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley, the mother of his 18-month-old daughter Kensli, have reached an agreement in their child support case, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Corley’s attorney Enrico Mirabelli said the former couple “put their child first” with this agreement. “Really, that’s the way it should be done,” he explained. “And when you settle between yourselves, you leave nothing to chance.”
One of Chance’s attorneys, Tanya Stanish, said the conclusion was fair because of the parents’ collaboration. “I’m going to give major credit to Chance and Kirsten for working together to reach a deal that’s fair for their daughter, fair for them both,” she said.
Chance and Kirsten, who have been living together with Kensli, have reportedly agreed to live separately in the best interest of their daughter, according to court documents. Nevertheless, Stanish said they will both have “substantial time” with Kensli.
The case made headlines earlier this month, when details of their court documents became public in a Chicago Sun-Times op-ed. The story called it a “messy split.” It was printed shortly after Chance donated $1 million to Chicago Public Schools.
At the time, Kirsten was requesting support for a vehicle and a furnished residence for her and her daughter. Meanwhile, Chance requested that the case’s financial information become private, which was granted by a judge last week.
Chance responded to the op-ed by seemingly denying a dispute, filming a video with Kirsten and Kensli by his side. “Y’all better do y’all jobs and stop worrying about how good my family is,” he said in the clip. “Just a friendly reminder. Don’t let anybody get between you and your family.”
