Babyface Divorce Settlement: Singer Ordered To Pay Ex-Wife $37K/Month, Allegedly Dating German Model

​ ​ ​ ​

Babyface’s divorce from his second wife, Nicole Pantenburg, has been finalized. The R&B singer has to pay $37,000 a month for child and spousal support. As for his love life, the 64-year-old is allegedly dating a 30-something German model. Details inside…

Babyface and his now-ex-wife Nicole Pantenburg have reached a divorce settlement where he’ll be paying tens of thousands of dollars a month.

According to a Radar Online report, the legendary singer, whose real name is Kenneth Brian Edmonds, and his (second) ex-wife, Nicole Pantenburg, reached an amicable agreement and agreed on a monthly salary of $37,000. The finalized divorce comes nearly two years after their divorce, which took place in the summer of 2021. The couple tied the knot in 2014.

The former couple has agreed to share legal and physical custody of their 14-year-old daughter, Peyton Nicole Edmonds. She is the couple's only child, but the R&B crooner also has two other children with his ex-wife, model Tracey Edmonds.

The “Whip Appeal” singer also agreed to continue paying the lease and insurance for Pantenburg's Cadillac Escalade. He will pay 65% of the cost for his daughter to visit and tour potential colleges. On those trips, Nicole, who was once a backup dancer for the singer, will be in charge of paying for all of her own expenses as well as 35% of Peyton's.

The father-of-three will also pay Peyton’s health insurance and private school tuition.

Babyface’s net worth is estimated to be close to $200 million.

Now that the divorce is over, Babyface can parade his alleged new chick on his arm freely.

Word on the curb is that the 64-year-old singer is currently dating a 30-something German model named Rika. The singer was said to have brought Rika as his date to the 2022 BET Awards. Below is a picture of Babyface and Rika at the event:

Also, Babyface added Rika as a producer of his new album, Girls’ Night Out, which features Ari Lennox, Ella Mai and more.

”Thank you @hitsdd FOREVER GRATEFUL to @babyface for letting me run with ideas and supporting me always,” she wrote on Instagram. “True legends and leaders teach you to become the best version of yourselves and will always provide a platform to excel. I am thankful for that. Very excited for all that 2023 holds.”

Interesting. They must be getting serious.

News of Babyface’s divorce comes weeks before he will perform “America the Beautiful” during Super Bowl LVII's broadcast on February 12th. The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs will go head-to-head to determine this year's champion. Babyface joins a group of performers, including Rihanna, EMMY winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, who will perform "Lift Every Voice and Sing,” and country singer Chris Stapleton, who will sing the National Anthem.
