Ludacris

I'm Hurtin' For Cash Because Of Paul Walker's Death

Ludacris can't afford to pay thousands of dollars in child support -- and he's blaming his financial woes on the death of his "Fast and Furious" co-star Paul Walker.

Ludacris was in court Wednesday with his baby mama, Tamika Fuller ... who's demanding Luda pay her $15K a month to take care of his 2-month-old baby daughter, Cai.

But Luda went to court and told the judge ... he was counting on "Fast and Furious 7" money to make his payments, and the movie is now on hold so his payday went away.

Luda claims he can only pay $1,800 a month -- confessing he only made around $55K for 2013.

The judge split the baby down the middle, ordering Luda to pay 7K a month for now ... while hizzoner reviews all the financial docs.

By the way ... Tyrese also claimed relative poverty in his child support case because of Walker's death.

I don't feel sorry for him one bit, he's had a long time girlfriend. Whom in my opinion is the only person that he should have been with. You wanna go snoopin around, you pay the price. However it think its beyond wrong how these judges grant these women thousands of dollars for the men to pay. What does a 2 month old baby need with 15k a month? That's 180,000 a year. Since the judges aren't gonna do anything about it. The men need to growup, and learn from it.

I get that all child support is based off income, but the amount that celebs have to pay is ridiculous. These girls get knocked up by someone famous to get the money and then they pawn their kids off on other people so they can live the good life. If his baby momma can't support her one child on 1800 a month(I support 2) then the courts need to be looking at what she's spending the money on.

Give me a break Really people. Take respond lies for your own action not on a death of another. Sound like they have bad managers. Should sell some of those cars ect instead you blame a dead man.

I really don't wanna hear about how 15k a month isn't enough when my mother raised 3 kids on $117/wk. And was lucky to get that once a month....some people need a damn reality check and it doesn't take near that amount to raise a kid adequately...smdh at the ridiculousness and self entitlement that people feel they deserve for doing absolutely nothing.. and shame on the judges involved.

Quit screwing every thing that moves and feeling the need to populate the earth if you don't want to part with the $$. Sick of these idiots claiming they are cash poor. They just don't want to support what they've created.
