Ludacris

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

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Low blow headline TMZ. His project is delayed thus he's not getting paid. Doesn't matter why it's delayed - the paycheck didn't come. What else is he supposed to say?

Way to twist his words, TMZ. There is a difference between counting on the F&F7 money and blaming Paul Walker's death for his debts. You have taken this to a new low.

I wish Eleanor Roosevelt was alive today. She was such an inspirational person and we wouldn't have less divorces and deal with such problems. That *unt needs to get a job and stop taking ludacris money.

Case in point why getting knocked up by a rapper isn't such a great idea. Money management isn't their strong suit!

Yeaa.. pretty sure he's blamming it on the movie being put on hold.. but "blamming it on paul walkers death!", is soooo much catchier though! Maan.. I would be pissed if some joke of a news source was making me out to be an arshole, so they could snag a few more views.

If someone can't provide for their child on $1800/month you have a problem. I think it's ridiculous that celebrities have to pay thousands and thousands a month in child support
