This week, MC Lyte’s divorce from businessman John Wyche was finalized, almost three years after she first filed. The couple got married in 2017, but they broke up not long after. MC Lyte was lucky because she had a prenuptial agreement that allowed her to keep all of her music.
As the court docs explain: “MC Lyte keeps her clothing, 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.”
But it looks like MC Lyte doesn’t like how her divorce is being talked about. The “Poor Georgie” rapper released a statement on Instagram on January 22 that said, “My divorce was not a battle.”

In the caption, MC Lyte said that Wyche wasn’t the bad guy that some publications are making him out to be. She said that instead, he was trying to save their relationship before he agreed to the breakup.
“My divorce was not a battle,” she wrote. “My ex-husband, John Wyche, has never attempted to take any assets from me at any time before, during or after our marriage. Anything that is written or said that states or implies otherwise is untrue and unfair. I do not agree with or support anything that aims to secure clicks and views by crafting slanted messaging at the expense of the reputation of innocent parties.”
“While I made public comments related to the delay in signing papers, I can state that any delay may have been connected to his desire to save the relationship; never to take any of my property.”
Then, MC Lyte, who stars in her own sitcom called Partners In Rhyme, decided to talk about some of the things she’s learned since they broke up.

“Divorce does not equal failure,” she continued. “We did not fail, it simply did not work. I pray for his wellbeing as I do my own and I wish him nothing but God’s choicest blessings. If you have anything to protect going into a marriage, get a prenuptial agreement so there’s no confusion if it comes to an end. As a matter of fact, make sure you protect all of your assets with proper insurance, financial and estate planning. Our people are far behind the wealth gap, get a financial education and do what is in your power to protect what God has blessed you with.”
“Focus on love and truth. Be careful what you say or imply about others. No one is perfect and we all have something that we need grace to cover. With all of the mental health crises we are facing as a human race, my prayer is that we will see more commonalities of heart among each other and less judgement.”
Last February, MC Lyte was a guest on The Real, where she talked about their ongoing divorce.
“I’m actually still going through it,” she said. “I think when the press got a hold of it, I think people thought we were [still together]. I had just filed. So we’re still going through it right now.”
MC Lyte criticized the media for reporting on her divorce as a “battle.” It took MC Lyte nearly three years after filing for divorce from businessman John Wyche, but last week they finally settled their divorce.
