Ludacris is in no hurry to meet his new baby daughter ... it's been nearly a month since the girl was born, and his baby mama says the rapper still hasn't dropped by to take a look.
Tamika Fuller just posted a long message on Instagram, writing, "She has yet to meet her father and it's unfortunate because I would never keep him from seeing her."
She also addresses the back and forth in court regarding Ludacris' ability to pay child support, insisting she's not looking for a handout. "It saddens me that it has come to this. I did not file on him. Nor would I ever try to attempt to extort my child's father."
She adds, "In spite of all that has already happened I just ask that the negativity stop towards him and I. We have a child to co-parent ... Her best interests come before any of all of this foolishness."
As we reported, Ludacris -- a multi-millionaire -- has filed legal docs saying he can only afford to pay $1,744 per month in child support.
With the 2013 MTV VMAs just hours away, take a stroll down memory lane and check out all of the wildest looks from last year's gathering.
**Be sure to check back this evening to see all of this year's VMA awesomeness!**
Now, we're not professional lip-readers ... but we could SWEAR Rihanna referred to Drake and his posse as a bunch of "a**holes" when they won an MTV VMA award last night.
Check out the video ... moments after Drake, Lil' Wayne, Nicki Minaj and the rest of the crew walk to the stage to accept the award for Best Hip-Hop Video ... the camera cuts to a close-up shot of Rihanna.
Rihanna mouths some words to the person sitting next to her ... it appears she says, "I hate these a**holes."
No surprise since Rihanna is tight with Chris Brown ... whose face was busted up during that crazy NYC nightclub brawl back in June.
Then again ... maybe she was just talking about "these rascals?"
It all happened live on MTV's "VIP Seating Cam" -- Rihanna made a beeline for Brown before the show ... and when she got close, Brown stood up and then Rihanna kissed him on the cheek.
The two then hugged each other ... and when it was over, Rihanna walked back to her seat.
It's the first time we've seen the two actually touching each other since the infamous beating incident back in 2009 ... the night before the Grammys.
Recently, Rihanna has been opening up about her feelings for Brown ... telling Oprah she still cares about him ... calling him "the love of my life."
MTV is hosting an awards show to honor something called a "music video" ... something that hasn't been seen on MTV in years.
Still, the stars need an excuse to get together and wear crazy outfits ... and TMZ has the photos of all the insanity that went down outside the event.
