Sherri Shepherd

My Ex Stole $20K From Me

8/9/2014 10:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0809-sherri-shepherd-lamar-sally-tmz-twitter-01Sherri Shepherd claims estranged hubby pilfered around $20K from their joint bank account before he split ... and the money could end up as a key piece of evidence in their custody war.

Sources close to the couple tell us Sherri was in the dark until she looked at a recent bank statement and saw the money was gone.

The fired "View" host is disavowing the contract she and Lamar Sally signed with a surrogate on grounds Lamar defrauded Sherri -- that the only reason he wanted the baby was so he could divorce her and collect child support.  We're told Sherri will use the $20K withdrawal as proof Lamar was purely money-motivated.

Sources tell us Lamar used the money for baby expenses ... including trips he took to Pennsylvania to be with the surrogate.  He also claims Sherri knew full well he took the money out of their joint account.

Lamar has yet to hear from Sherri since the baby was born.

He had access to the full joint account, so if he was money hungry, he would have took more than 20k... Somethings not adding up!

I think they are both complete fools, and this guy's motives are questionable to say the least. That said, I don't think you can call it "stealing" if it's a joint checking account.

He's a BUM but Sherri has only herself to blame for marrying this UGLY, jobless loser on the first place. She settled and married this hideous, poor excuse for a man simply because she was desperate to be married and he asked.

I always got a bad feeling from Sherri...like that she wasn't a good person. People that act holier than thou and "I believe in the teachings of the bible" always seem to be the most evil ones inside. Closet devils.

Abandoning a baby doesn't seem very Christian.

I had a joint account with my ex and he cleaned out the account $10,000. The judge said it was a joint account. Good luck with that Sherri.

That's not really a good defense. It's a joint account, where two married adults are the co-signors. If her lawyers are telling her she can win on those grounds they're playing her just like Sal did. I wonder if he was cheating w/the surrogate tho?? Also this would explain why he's had so much time to hang out all day and not look for work. It's clear he used her tho, but this is still a weak defense.
