Atlanta rapper Ludacris has been battling his ex-girlfriend Tamika Fuller over custody of their kid, and Luda has apparently lost the battle as reports claim he will be coughing up almost $40,000 in their child support case.
According to reports, the judge in the case rules against Ludacris and forced him to cough up mega bucks for Fuller’s attorney fees.
“Ludacris has been embroiled in a nasty child custody battle and in new legal documents exclusive obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Georgia judge sided with the rapper’s baby mama and he’s been ordered to pay her legal bill. “Petitioner shall pay to Respondent’s counsel, Thirty Five Thousand Dollars ($35,000.00), in addition to any amounts previously awarded or paid, as an award of temporary attorney’s fees and expenses of litigation,” the March 20 ruling reads. “Said amount shall be paid to Respondent’s counsel within 10 days of the date of this order.” And because Ludacris‘ motion to have Fuller found in contempt was denied, he was knocked an extra $2,000 in fees for that too.” (RadarOnline)
Back in Feburary, reports claimed Luda was pulling out all the stops to win the case against his baby mama.
“Rapper Ludacris wants to do something so shocking, it will send shock waves through the rap community — he’s fighting for CUSTODY of his kid. Luda and baby mama Tamika Fuller are duking it out in an Atlanta court over custody and child support. They had a baby girl 2 months ago and Tamika’s been taking care of the kid. The rapper now says in legal docs he’s a “fit and capable parent” and should get full physical custody. He offers up his parental resume, saying he’s always been “an active father” to his 12-year-old girl.” (TMZ)
