Although DJ Mustard filed for divorce from Chanel Thierry, he hasn’t abandoned his respect for his former lady of 12 years. As previously reported, Mustard submitted paperwork this week to end his marriage of 1.5 years.

“It’s one thing to have my family business on the internet and of course, I initially didn’t respond cause I don’t owe the public no explanation but I do owe my family to clear these false narrative[s] that @ChanelDijon cheated that’s out and never happened,” Mustard wrote on his Instagram Story.
