In 1994, Rashida gave birth to their daughter, Aaliyah Mitchell. By 1996, they had separated due to unspecified reasons. In 1999, she filed for divorce. Their divorce settlement would later lead to a big dispute between them as she alleged that he had falsely claimed he was earning $2,000 a month, which led to the judge ordering Twista to pay $100 in child support to Rashida. In 2003, the judge increased child support to $460 a month. However, in 2004, she filed a lawsuit alleging that Twista had failed to pay child support in the past couple of months and she didn’t have money to buy new clothes for their daughter’s new school term.
