Luda must have some good lawyers because he just got off scott free on those child support payments and now has primary custody of his daughter!
Rapper/Actor Ludacris has just been awarded primary physical custody of his and Tamika Fuller’s baby Cai Bella (who is now over a year old), this according to Ludacris’ rep.
Luda issued a statement moments ago via his rep saying:
“After review of all the evidence, the testimony of the witnesses, the report of the guardian ad litem, and the claims made throughout this entire case, I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter”.News of Luda becoming a dad again shocked everyone when child support documents surfaced showing that he had a baby outside of his long-term relationship with then-girlfriend Eudoxie. Ludacris previously said he and Tamika were old friends who caught up with each other while he and Eudoxie were on an alleged break, and the two had sexual relations.
Once Tamika filed for child support, Luda challenged the amount claiming he only made less than $2,000 a month and could not afford to pay the $15K a month Tamika asked for. Interestingly, he then filed for full custody. And soon after, the rapper got married to Eudoxie in a surprise ceremony (a surprise to both his bride and to the world) this past New Year’s Eve.
Tamika Fuller has since remarked that the surprise wedding was a ploy for Ludacris to appear he has a “more stable”household than Tamika in order to get the judge to rule in his favor.
Well, after a recent hearing where Tamika dropped the bomb that Luda bribed her $10,000 and a house for her to have an abortion over a year ago, it seems the judge did rule in Luda’s favor.
Luda’s rep tells us that Mr. Bridges does not have sole custody. Due to confidentiality, further details of the custody split are unable to be discussed.
Legally, primary physical custody usually means one parent has physical (not necessarily legal) custody more often than the another parent, but details of how much time the child spends with each parent is case by case.
