Ludacris

I'm That Kid's Daddy

But I Can't Pay Much

1/1/2014 7:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1231-ludacris-01-tmzLudacris didn't use protection when he banged some chick, but he's taking precautions now ... because he wants to legally establish his paternity and then set a hard limit on his child support.

Ludacris has been in a long-term relationship with Eudoxie -- pronounced kinda like the book in the Bible (don't ask).  But Luda took a break from Eudo long enough to get Tamika Fuller preggo. 

Cai Bella Bridges was born December 9th.  And here's where the plot thickens. 

It seems Ludacris knows he's the daddy, but he's worried Tamika will go in for the kill.  So he's filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming he's only pulling in $25,842.41 a month on average.  Under Georgia law ... his monthly child support payment would be set at $1,754.66.

FYI ... Forbes says Luda is worth $12 mil ...  but that seems real low.

it is a sad day for Fatherhood, when a court has to force a man to pay for the care of his own child! REAL MEN never needs a court order!

First Dwyane Wade and now Luda? And these women actually stick up for these kind of men? Self worth must be running low these days! Money isn't everything. At the end of the day you have to question is it all worth the cheating, babies behind your back, for a roof over your head and a fancy car. Ladies think smarter not harder.

7 out of 10 Black women are single mothers raising the children in America.

So that means only 3 out of 10 are responsible fathers.

Luda is not one of those 3, he is part of the 68% of black men who don't raise their own children.

How could Luda? You might hate the baby Mama but don't deprive your kid. If you don't trust her with the funds, establish a future somehow for the child

Why is everyone assuming he didn't wear a condom? Why is it only a man responsibility to prevent pregnancy? Women have over 10 different forms of contraceptives why is everyone telling to pay up as if he said he wouldn't? $1,754.66 a month for an infant and that's tax free money so how's that being cheap??? Least you know that the money will be mostly spent on the child and not the mother it should increase as the child gets older but child support is suppose to support the child not supplement the mothers income and fund an extravagant lifestyle for her

Being a parent is not about the money only.
The purpose of having a child is to create a successful new mini-me. teaching a new being all the life skills that could possably be needed to become a successful person.
Yes money is needed to do that but the the skills are by far more important.

I can't believe that Luda was this STUPID!!! He has seen all of the ballers / rappers that have been affected by out-of-wedlock babies.

Now... he wants to short-change the baby?

What a LOSER!!!

He marketed his squeaky clean image...
and his image as a good father to his daughter!

TAKE CARE OF THIS NEW BABY ACCORDING TO YOUR WORTH!!!

The price of a CONDOM was so inexpensive... but apparently you chose not to use one!

He's a millionaire who couldn't pay 3.99 for a tiny box of condoms? Smart. Very smart.
