Ludacris

Gunning For Full Custody ...

Wants Child Support

EXCLUSIVE

0221-ludacris-01
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.

Now the plot thickens.


Luda has also asked the judge to force Tamika to pay HIM child support.  That's interesting, because Tamika was asking for $15K a month in child support and Ludacris pleaded poverty, saying Paul Walker's death derailed "Fast & Furious 7" and his cash flow dried up.  The judge awarded her $7K a month.

So the question ... does Luda really want custody, or is this a way to turn the financial tables?

Hardyharhar. A man wants child support or lower payments and he's some deadbeat s***bag. A woman gets half of the millions she didn't do anything other than lay on her back to earn, and she's getting what is rightfully hers. Oh feminism, thank you for showing us the just path!

So does he think because he feels fit it's cool to just take a baby from its mother?
Does he have reasonable proof that she is unfit to care for her child?
Does he even understand the bond between a mother and her child?
Is she on drugs?
Abusive?
Is he in it just for money really?
Is she?

I need more evidence to make a vote on this one. To many things missing to agree or disagree.

In the end babies are human beings who will grow into free thinking people someday. Not objects to be passed around. I'm curious as to where this story might go......

I say he really wants custody, but that will also end having to worry about paying her child support. Unless I am mistaken, she has no income other than that so will put up a horrendous fight to hang on to the kid. Daddy will be back in the money shortly.

Is this a joke? Spend some of that luxury vacation money on your kid and leave the child in it's mothers care. Fame can't buy everything, and with the lame excuses he has used to support his case recently, it shows he is a selfish man living beyond his means. He should be ashamed of his actions. Didn't even know je had another child.

I don't have a problem with it. The father is equally entitled to custody. Clearly he can provide for the child better than the mom so in opinion he should have a chance.
