Sherri Shepherd

0722-sherri-shepherd-jeffery-tarpley-tmz-getty-01Sherri Shepherd will maintain primary physical custody of her 9-year-old son, despite her ex-husband's claims she's a horrible parent to the child.

Sherri emerged victorious over Jeffrey Tarpley after yesterday's hearing in L.A. County Court -- he was seeking full custody of their son, but was denied by the judge.

TMZ broke the story ... Jeffrey made some horrendous claims about Sherri neglecting Jeffrey Jr. -- including blaming her for the boy not being able to read or tie his shoe laces.

The judge clearly disagreed. In court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- she wrote, "there has not been a material change in circumstances to grant the request."

After court Sherri asked fans to "keep the prayers coming" ... clearly referring to her ongoing battle with estranged husband Lamar Sally.

I'm glad she won and I hope she beats Lamar too the only real loser in this situation is the unborn child because that kid will only have Lamar.
