Sherri Shepherd: Keep Signing the Child Support Checks ... Appeal DENIED!

EXCLUSIVE

Time for Sherri Shepherd to crack open that checkbook -- her last ditch effort to avoid paying child support to her ex was shot down in court.

Sherri had claimed her estranged husband Lamar Sally defrauded her by getting a surrogate to carry a baby for them. She thinks he did it only for the purpose of securing a fat child support check, once he knew they were divorcing.

Well, Lamar is going to get that check after all -- because an appeals court agreed with the lower court's decision that Sherri was fully on board with the surrogate plan and in fact, paid for most of the process.

Bottom line for Sherri, she'll continue with the terms of their settlement ... paying $4,100 per month until the infant hits 13 -- then it's $4,600.

We suggest auto-pay. Less fuss.
