The ongoing legal battle between DJ Mustard and his ex-wife Chanel Thierry has taken a new turn. According to court documents acquired by, Mustard has filed a motion to modify the former couple’s existing custody arrangement.

Mustard, who currently shares joint legal custody of his three children with Thierry, is now seeking sole legal custody of their oldest son.


In the legal papers, the Grammy-winning producer argues that he should be given authority to make decisions regarding their son’s education.

Mustard expressed concerns about the quality of education at the public school where Chanel enrolled their son, citing its low rating. He proposed an alternative public school with plans to eventually move the 11-year-old to a private institution.

He claimed to have consulted with educational professionals who advised that their son work on improving his grades before considering a move to a private school.

However, he alleges that Chanel was unresponsive to these recommendations, describing her attitude as “defensive” and accusing her of treating the education matter as a competition she must win at any cost.

Mustard’s lawyer emphasizes, “Since [Mustard] began searching for a private school in October of 2023, Chanel has been reflexively oppositional to any and all information or advice coming from the professionals advising him.”

The legal battle between DJ Mustard and Chanel Thierry has been ongoing since their divorce filing in 2022, revolving over custody and financial support for their three children.

Chanel initially demanded $80k per month in child support, and after months of courtroom disputes, they agreed to joint custody with Mustard paying $24k per month in temporary support.

As of now, Chanel has not responded to DJ Mustard’s request for sole legal custody. The ex-couple shares custody of their two sons and daughter—Kauner, Kylan, and Kody.
