Rap mogul Master P's bitter divorce battle has stepped up a notch after his estranged wife filed papers demanding a huge $67 million (£41.8 million) chunk of his fortune.

Sonya Miller filed for divorce from hip-hop star, real name Percy Miller, in October (13) after 24 years of marriage.

She accuses the 43 year old of failing to provide for their three children, forcing her to rely on welfare payments from the U.S. government, and she has now filed new papers claiming she should receive assets worth up to $67 million.

In documents obtained by Tmz.com, Miller is demanding eight of their reported 31 properties, several cars, a chandelier worth $300,000 (£187,000) and even her wedding dress, said to be worth $28,000 (£17,500).

Miller is estimated to be worth more than $150 million (£93 million).

The pair is also embroiled in a custody battle - Sonya was recently denied an emergency order after she asked a judge to force the rapper to return the children to her care.

A custody hearing is set for July (14).
