Ludacris was defeated in court recently, after he filed for full physical custody of the baby he had outside of his relationship (with girlfriend Eudoxiee). Plus, Master P is trying to clear his name after reports surfaced about him allegedly “kidnapping” his own kids. Get all the deets inside…
After filing for full physical custody of his “break baby” with Tamika Fuller and claiming he couldn’t afford the child support order Tamika filed, a judge has ruled against Ludacris (above on the set of his “Party Girls” video), costing him a total of $35,000!
According to legal documents obtained by RadarOnline, Tamika was granted full physical custody of their 4-month old daughter, Cai Bella, on the grounds that being with her mother is in the best interest of the child. Ludacris also filed a motion to have the mother of his child held in contempt of court, which he also lost.
“The Petitioner shall pay the Guardian ad Litem’s initial retainer of $7,500.00, to be replenished to the full amount when depleted to $1,500.00,” the documents read.
“The Guardian ad Litem shall be billed at a rate of $325.00 per hour. The retainer shall be paid directly to the Guardian ad Litem within 14 days of the entry of this order.”
“Petitioner shall pay to Respondent’s counsel, Thirty Five Thousand Dollars ($35,000.00), in addition to any amounts previously awarded or paid, as an award of temporary attorney’s fees and expenses of litigation,” the March 20 ruling reads.
During their custody hearing on March 18th, Tamika asked a Georgia judge for the “Party Girls” rapper to pay ALL of her attorney fees. Not only that, he has to pay her the full amount within 10 days from the date of the order. In addition to the $35K he has to hand over, he now has to pay an extra $2,000 after his motion to have Tamika found in contempt was denied.
In the words of Nene Leakes, you never win when you're dirty chile...
And in other celeb custody battles…
In an effort to clear his name, Master P has released videos of him talking to his kids where they admit their father did NOT abduct them, after his estranged wife, Sonya Miller, accused him of kidnapping their children.
Sonya reportedly filed an emergency custody order for Percy Miller (Master P) to return the children to her. Sonya claimed their daughter Tytyana ran away to live with her dad and that P picked up their 13-year-old son Hercy and 9-year-old son Mercy one day after school. Their 14-year old daughter Italy is still living with her mother.
In another attempt to BLAST P, Sonya claimed she had to move in with their eldest son, Lil Romeo and was forced to get public assistance to get by.
In the videos--filmed at Sonya's residence--their daughter Tytyana admitted her mother has smoked marijuana with her and her siblings. And their son Hercy said their mother is a bad influence on them. P even revealed that Sonya allowed their 14-year-old daughter Italy to travel out of town with a boy and his parents for a weekend and Sonya also hosted a party for Italy that involved drugs.
In one video, Master P says,
"Seriously, why is this news? My kids have been living with me for over three months with their mother's approval. Did she forget? Is this a joke? Where is this custody case file? My kids are old enough to speak how they feel, they ask me to come live with me and I'm not going to deny them. I try to do what any good parent would do, protect and provide for my kids and just do what's best for my kids. If she just wants money, she should just say that instead of using the kids. This is embarrassing for me and my family, we've always lived a private life. I've been dealing with this problem with her for over 24 years and I'm not holding it in anymore. I've stayed by her side for many years, hoping that she would grow and change for the better especially for our kids' sake but after two decades; I realize that I can't change her, I can only change myself. It's not healthy for kids to grow up in a home where they can easily access drugs and alcohol. The reason I've moved on is to provide a peace of mind for myself and to provide a stable and healthy environment for my kids. She may be my ex-wife but I will always love and care for her well-being, she is the mother of my kids. I would never turn my kids against their mom, they love her, she just needs help. I'm going to put it in God's hands and pray for her. I don't know whom she's getting bad guidance from but when she's ready, I'll gladly help her get into rehab. Hopefully then, our kids will be more comfortable around her and if they choose to live with her, I'm good with that. For all the people that are buying into the negative gossip, I'm not perfect and I have nothing to prove. My kids are and always have been my priority, I will continue to take care of my kids and I don't need a judge or a lawyer to tell me to. "
The (excluding Italy) kids each gave their reasons as to why they wanted to move in with their dad with reasons including not getting them to school on time, smoking in front of them and being a drunk.
