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.

Seriously? Give me a freakin break! He can't afford to pay much? Um isn't he a multi millionaire? Makes me sick these so called "baby daddy" types can't take full responsibility for their actions! Either don't have random sex, or at least have the brains to wear a condom! If you do neither you deserve to pay through the nose to support a child that never asked to be born! These rapper *******s have got to start taking responsibility for their actions!

This is a Shame that his child is going to be living in such a low amount. It should be a third of his income for all his Children. As most of us know it's not cheap to raise children. With his wealth the child should be taken care of very well. If you ban make a child be a man and take care of them.

2,000 is plenty for one child. If the average cost to raise a child up to the age of 18 is 250,000..That means Luda will pay almost half a million dollars by the time the kid is 18. Plus the mom should have a job and be paying for the child on top of Ludas child support.

Ludacris is not above the law, I think the law entitle women to a cetian percentage of a persons income when determining support.get your priorities in place, youve not just learned about condoms once the woman got pregnant.the judge need to establish trust for the kids of these big money folks whom have money to give away, spend it on your kids you spend it on the strippers.he and dwayne both think with the wrong heads.and stop trying to make the women look bad.you all are the daddy, go get on maury.

It shouldn't be about how much money is given, it should be about taking care of the child PERIOD. She should be happy a dude is willing to take care of his bec a lot of kids end up with dead beat fathers I know how it is even though my dad paid some child support i wish he could have turned the money in to spending time with me growing up..Just bec someone has money doesnt mean you should think u need to get it all where is your half to support the kid..IJS both laid down both need to provide no matter how much comes outta pocket.

Hell $1700/month is a lot of money. If I were getting that in child support on top of my career, my child would be in private school and have a nice college fund. Now he's an a$$hole for trying to do what he's trying to do, but these females need to quit trying to hit the lotto because they got impregnated by a famous person. Children might be expensive, but you can raise a child and give them a good, solid life without having millions. Ugh
