Straight From The D. Wade Playbook: Ludacris Fathers A Child While On ‘Break’ From Longtime Girlfriend Eudoxie

Earlier this week we were shocked to learn that Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade recently fathered a child with a woman who is not his longtime girlfriend-turned-fiancée, Gabrielle Union. In case you somehow missed it, news leaked that Dwyane fathered a 3-month-old child, which was reportedly conceived while he and Gabby were on a relationship “break.” Apparently Atlanta rapper Ludacris is following the D.Wade playbook because it was recently revealed that he, too, welcomed a child last month. But unfortunately, that child is not by his long-term girlfriend, Eudoxie.

According to TMZ, the child, whose name is Cai Bella Bridges, was born on Dec. 9 to a woman named Tamika Fuller. And in similar D. Wade fashion, it is also being reported that Luda and Eudoxie were on “break” during the time he got Tamika pregnant. Since establishing paternity of the child, Luda has reportedly gone on to take legal precautions to keep Tamika from doing him in with outrageous child support requests. Legal docs filed on behalf of the Georgia rapper claim that he only makes $25,842.41 per month. Under Georgia law, this would mean that Tamika is entitled to $1,754.66 per month in child support.

Luda has yet to publicly comment on the scandal, but it appears that he and Eudoxie are okay as the two just spent New Year’s Eve together (check the pics with Kevin Hart at the Hennessy V.S and AG Entertainment event at Compound in Atlanta below). We’re not sure what happened to using condoms, but fathering secret children during relationship “breaks” seems to be the latest trend. We will continue to keep you posted as this story develops.

Thoughts?

    I’m sorry I don’t care how many zeroes you have in the bank, you father a child with another woman while we are on a break and the break remains “permanent’.

  • Child_Puhleez

    Birth control has been around for how long? They’re all pathetic.

  • Ifuaskme2

    We need to look at the women who are allowing them back into their beds. This was just the slip up, but what about the others that they didn’t get pregnant?

  • vanelle22

    I’m glad I learned my lesson……lol early!!!!! Eudoxie been with Luda so long I think its 6 years??? Not married and most importantly didn’t finish her med school. She is a pretty girl but her well is running dry chasing this fool who has kids and no desire to marry.

  • msmartin

    I don’t understand these women. If you have a baby with someone other than me, I’m done! You need to devote your time to your new family and I will move on to someone who has no attachments other than the life we have together.

  • MEH

    So, who still believes in “black love”?

  • coolyfett

    Congrats Luda!! Wishing the baby a healthy life.

    • hollyw

      Uhhhh…something tells me he’s not as excited about the news…

  • TT

    Na this gets me upset both women have been with their men since 2009, Eudoxie is really a good woman (go follow her on IG) , Gabrielle too but their men are dumb diddies you mean to tell me for years they’ve been men of status I’m talking about both since high school and they can’t smell opurtunistic gold diggers a mile away, seriously ! They’ve been with these women since 2009 and they managed not to get pregnant…they knew to pick smart, well educated and cultured women but thought it was ok to sleep with these little hoes and and I blame Gabbie and Eudoxie in part too! I know for a fact Eudoxie goes to the strip club with Luda that’s freaken BS who cares if the strip club supports rap music don’t let your freaken use that to make it ok for going, there’s temptation in strip clubs, they need to stop being so lenient in their relationship and comfortable because they are spoiled and raise them to the standards that deserve, put freaken ultimatums in place and if these men want to use the excuse of their careers for their choice of sleeping around they need to leave these boys and I do say boys cause a man doesn’t pull ish like breaks, free pass, pu$$y over a good woman

  • Wlepla Glassco

    They were not on no damn break. These women are their side chicks 2nd to the main chick and they were comfortable enough to sleep with out protection. To me that says a lot. I don’t question them staying cuz I don’t know what I would do. However baby is the ultimate Chris brown in the face.

  • Simone Mackey

    This is why I wouldn’t take a relationship with a rapper seriously. Eudoxiee is very beautiful too and seems down-to-Earth, that’s wrong. The saying goes, “make sure your foundation isn’t built with sand.”

  • Rebbekah

    I used to think that it was looks that kept a man… Eudoxie is very beautiful but this proves that it ain’t about looks AT ALL. If a man doesn’t want you, he don’t want you point blank.

    • Cornell Ginger

      Oh no, looks get his attention the quickest but your personality and how you treat him is what keeps him. At the same time, for some men, a man is only as loyal as his options.

      In the black community, both black men and black women weren’t really raised around parents who stayed together for thirty, forty years. So to us, it’s a must to be monogamous since we didn’t see that monogamy first hand.

  • Rosetta’s Stoned

    Man listen…idk wtf is wrong with these people out here playing with their lives. What is so hard about putting on a condom? I would have to shoot you if I find out you’ve cheated and didn’t use protection. I’m sorry I would HAVE TO.

    • hollyw

      Yo, I am sooo with you lmbo! SO with you!

  • Ebony P Dukes

    This article is BS!!! If he makes that much $$ monthly her CS wld be abt $4,393.00 per MONTH!!! Standard CS for one child is 17% of annual income of non-custodial parent!!!

    • MG

      Depends on the state, in CA it’s 25%…..

  • Neasha Stephens

    Ok-A man can only do what we allow……Funny stuff neither of females realize that they are BOTH side chicks….He didn’t just start smashing ol girl raw…he BEEN doing it………He just needed to justify to his self why he was smashing shawty raw so he took a break to keep breaking shawty off without feeling guilty. And he new about shawty being pregnant cause the baby has his last name…….and you got to be present at birth to sign the birth letter/birth certificate. These dudes/bammas use us cause we allow it………i.e. Eudoxie is back with him knowing all this. What he got to lose????

    • OSHH

      yep if he knows he can dog you, go out here and make babies, cheat, lie etc and you still deal with him. He knows there are no real consequences for treating his so called main lady like ish. He is going to keep doing what he does, but as far as a woman allowing herself to be treated this way, it erodes her self esteem, self worth and self respect.

      These pieces of dudes are not ever worth that!!!!! Love yourself enough to not tolerate such disrespect and mistreatment.

      “the more you allow [a man] to cheat then allow him to come back, the less attractive you become… you become a victim to your own lack of self-love.”……Carl A Roberts

      • OSHH

        Somebody don’t like the truth.

  • Robin Matthews

    MN I kid you not, I was just asking myself what happened to safe sex I mean really are you that dumb or desperate to have sex with a random ??? Oh come on !

  • ericamissamerica

    The question is not should she forgive him, but why has she lost focus? I think she should go back to medical school and concentrate less on Ludachris. She seems to have gotten very comfortable living that life and she has lost sight on why she even came to America. Medical School!!! Men say they want an independent woman, but look who they eventually impregnate and build broken homes with Eudoxie go back to school and show Luda the real reason why you are a boss.

    • Angel Halo Demeritt

      You just spoke the truth!

    • Jan

      i never got why she didn’t continue going….. i wouldve been in school with him paying my tuition and book fees. Women and men should never lose focus on their education and aspirations. Im in crazy in love with my boyfriend, but i would never drop or press pause on my goals to be a mental health therapist. I wouldn’t expect him to do the same.

    • Cornell Ginger

      And how exactly do you know that she isn’t currently in school or that she hasn’t already received her doctorates?

      Secondly, men advocate that they want an “independent woman” because that’s what women want to hear. Actions speak louder than words. There is a reason why more women who are “independent” are single versus women who aren’t fully. A man, especially a man of decent means, wants an AVAILABLE WOMAN over an independent woman. It’s usually pretty difficult for two busy people to workout. You ever notice the person you text and talk frequently everyday and see quite often usually gets more love than the person who you barely communicate with and see once or twice a week.

      • ericamissamerica

        You’re right I do not know for a fact. But you must admit, she cannot be doing too much studying by her Instagram photos. Now if she has it like that and she does not have to study; Kudos to her and I want to be like that by not having to study myself. But Umm… Who said being independent meant busy all of the time? Independent is also a state of mind and women get that mixed up. To me it does not mean busy and emotionally unavailable. My definition is being secure in yourself on all aspects. Physically, mentally, and spiritually. Meaning: I am okay to be in a relationship and I am okay to not be in one. It also means I will not die if this guy decides he wants jump ship. It’s really simple. And please don’t tell me what I want to hear. Always ask and I will tell you what the program is with no games.

  • CC

    Don’t put all the blame on him. Whomever this woman is she obviously knew what time it was too. She’s not getting much even though we all know Luda is worth more that $28,000 a month. Oh well, it’s another one!!!!

    • Rebbekah

      Yeah, she was definitely like “imma get my money with this baby” haha

      • CC

        Don’t know this woman but the amount mentioned above is probably more than she’s making now.

    • hollyw

      I’m sorry but, at this level in his career and his age, Luda is way, waaay, waaaaaay to dizzam experienced to have been caught slipping like this. I mean, unless the chick seriously kept the condom and used a turkey baster, there is just. no. excuse. None.

      • CC

        You’re right but that didn’t stop him from slipping up so what is your point??

  • Chaz

    Have these men never heard of “condoms”. You know, the things you buy from the store.

    • BabyBlue

      Box cost what $3.00? That’s better than shoving out a million every month. Apparently, they can’t do math either.

      • Rebbekah

        Yeah, you’d think they’d do the math… crazy.

  • BabyBlue

    Safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex [cause] you don’t want that late text….. I think I’m late text- Lil Wayne.

    • Angel Halo Demeritt

      That’s nice, but I would believe it better if it didn’t come from a man that has 30 kids with 30 different baby mamas…lol

      • BabyBlue

        It doesn’t matter where it comes from the MESSAGE is still the same. People don’t want to hear the message because of the messenger? No wonder our society is messed up. Smh

        • Angel Halo Demeritt

          It actually does matter where it comes from. I wasn’t raised by the “do as I say, not as I do” parents. My parents led by example. I know Dwyane and Luda hope their children don’t follow in their footsteps. One of the problems in our society is a lot of people don’t know how to do better, there is a lack of examples.

          • BabyBlue

            In my opinion it doesn’t. I don’t go looking for role models. But, what I do acknowledge is when someone makes a valid point. And his statement was valid. No matter if Lil Wayne or Oprah said It. I pray for my generation smh. Agree to disagree.

            • Angel Halo Demeritt

              I’ll join you in prayer :)

  • Ariette

    Wow. Im disappointed in Luda. A break is what they call it, I call Bullsh#$

  • hollyw

    Perhaps it should be standard procedure to each get tested after your relationship “breaks”…yeah. That.

    • Laine

      It should be standard procedure to get tested regularly period. Whether that is at the start, end, during or whatever of a relationship.

      • hollyw

        In the words of my father: “I’m with ya when ya right!”

    • Jan

      we both get tested, and we have had no breaks. once a year , we both go

    • Cornell Ginger

      Being that Eudoxie has a doctorates, and Gabrielle is an advocate for “Black Girl Rocks”, I’m pretty confident that both ladies got tested.

      It should be a standard to get tested regularly, even if you think there is no one else in the picture.

  • hollyw

    Soooo… I’m beginning to think the only way to truly “get a man” today is to catch him slipping while on break from somebody else…or am I wrong lol??

    *sighhh* some ninjaz really ain’t sh**…

  • Coco black

    Some men …. some black men have no morals and are actually quite disgusting. However, I was in a similar situation myself 5-6 years ago…blindly in love and when we were on a break aka didn’t communicate for about a month. He was off sexxing an ex..resulted in the birth of twins 9 months later. I was young and dumb and stayed..his “but we weren’t together” made it not seen so bad. The next year was bad…roll on another 12 months!! Same shittttt again. Walked away then and there…….he begged, he cried, said “lets get married”. My response was “you are a compulsive, disgusting liar….I’m lucky I don’t have HIV”.

    We live and we learn…..I learnt a lot from that doomed relationship. Some men are just weak and pathetic. I be D and L did the same crying routine my old ex did.

    Goodluck to them…until next time! How can they respect men who don’t even respect you or themselves!

    That same ex then stalked me for two years..had to get the Police involved!

    • hollyw

      You are right, not only so they clearly not respect you or the bond enough, they clearly do not value themselves if they think their life is worth raw-dogging a groupie. Got all the money in the world, all that access, and not a lick of sense. Ugh. Tragic.

      • Jan

        exactly, where was all of this love and wanting to marry me before you got caught?yes, we all experience temptation, but i think about how my life was before him and how much we share and im like nah im good…. i don’t even put myself in position to let another man think they stand a chance with me.

      • Coco black

        Exactly…….disgusting!

    • OSHH

      Not only do too many black males lack self respect, morals, character, integrity, self control etc they just have ZERO regard for women, the overall well being of women, even the ones they are in so called relationships with. Loyal to no one but themselves, selfish and trifling.
      Women need to get their self esteem up and set and or raise your standards as far as someone’s character.
      Too many women are out vying for some dude, giving them their all, trying to be everything to some joker that she is only getting the bare minimum from, a fraction and rations….. Wake up ladies.

      • Cornell Ginger

        The question should be is, why are there so many men who feel they can get away with this? It goes deeper than women just getting their self esteem up. It’s much more complex than that.

      • Coco black

        I hear you…

      • Samantha

        the women are desperate and get what they deserve. That’s how I see it. They already know the man is not father material. What father wants to hang out in clubs, have wondering eyes and want to be with their homies all the time. The women picked them then act surprised and hurt. Oh please. If you no like it, stop dating them!

  • Kristen

    Smh..that’s all I can say! lol!!

  • Caramel Empress

    oh lord not ANOTHER one! what is wrong with these hollywood fools?

    Perhaps they all dusted off their F.R.E.I.N.D.S boxset and decided to indulge in a lil nostalgia for movie night!.

    Clearly that legendary justification from Ross Geller……. “we were on a BREAK!” had them paying such close attention they decided to make it the mantra of their domestic life!

    smh sorry for those poor women having to put up with such BS! Outrageous!

  • Claire

    How do you raw dog on a break?!? They had to have been bare backing with these women all along. I’m glad the main chick stays on birth control.

  • Sandia

    These guys are lucky they’re only receiving babies from these encounters. We are living in an age where you can die from sex. These fools and their money part so easily all because they refuse to protect themselves. A man is more than a paycheck. He needs to be in the household to show his children how to treat a woman and themselves. I don’t care how much these girls are flossing on instagram with the bags and the shoes I’ll take a stand up guy any day before I compromise my dignity.

    • hollyw

      Truth be told, we don’t know if the baby is all they got from it. These trifling chicks are real quick to announce their pregnancy; not so much that they gave him the Clap, too, ijs… o.O

      • Naja Hamilton

        Yikes!!!!! Too true, yuck, ewww!!!

      • Danie Holmes

        Or that he gave them the clap or any other STD!

        • hollyw

          Right, or the main chick got the clap! Everybody just looking around like Who Shot John!

  • SisterTruth

    Take notes, Ladies. If a man says he wants a break, don’t for one second think he’s going to keep his pants zipped up.

  • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

    So “on a break” code word for i cheated & got a chic pregnant now?

  • Tehara

    Relationships have ups and downs, and it’s not a crime to have sexual encounters while “on a break” HOWEVER, random unprotected sex with groupies is irresponsible and stupid.

    • Brittnee Williamson

      These chicks had to be on standby….no one just meet a chick n get them pregnant right away like that. ..the side chick number been in his phone hello!!!

      • Coco black

        100% agree with you!! Definitely on ‘standby’…….and were prob cheating for a while.

      • Rebbekah

        yea, I agree. How in the hell do they find a woman so quickly to impregnate? Had to have been old friends.

      • Wlepla Glassco

        Thank you

    • hollyw

      I think it depends on the ground rules set by the individual couple, if any. I personally would consider it cheating. Then again, if we hadn’t talked about it beforehand, this would’ve been the first thing I asked when we got back together.

    • Cornell Ginger

      Groupies? Did Luda get multiple women pregnant, or just one?

  • Guest

    so “on a break” is code word for a cheated & got a chic pregnant now?

    • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

      Hold up! I deleted this because of the typo y does it say guest lol

    • Cornell Ginger

      Go on break to a man is, “I’m a bachelor again”. Luda and Dwayne are millionaires, what do you expect for them to do, cuddle themselves to sleep? Naw. Things happen. Most people are alive today weren’t planned when they were born. Lets keep it real.

  • Girl57

    Do these idiots not know how to use birth control? If the situation was reversed, would they take back the women if they became pregnant on break? I think not. Money is not worth my self esteem.

    • guerline

      so true.man are entitled to so many things is ridiculous. Juts because you are taking a break you can just go around sleeping with woman without protection. It looks like using the break period is what people have to do to cheat and make it ok

      • Rebbekah

        yeah, Gabrielle Union has absolutely no problem with it. I think it’s a bad sign, IMO. I was so happy for Gabrielle’s marriage I was like finally a true love Black couple! Then came the truth…

        • guerline

          yep, i was disappointed when i heard the news. how deceitful? i do not know their story but she sure cannot be desperate? she’s pretty, talented, has her career and everything. I know there is not that much of black man left but come on

          • SisterTruth

            There’s plenty of good back men The problem is that they usually get passed over for thugs and a$$holes.

            • guerline

              lol, nowadays, you don’t know who’s real, who’s fake. good guy are becoming bad guys, bad guys getting badder and pretending to be good. it’s a mess. you don’t know who to believe who to trust. it’s insane

              • SisterTruth

                I agee it’s hard, but you have to pray, ask questions, really listen and get to know before you commit. Don’t be afraid to cut your losses and move on if you realize he’s not the one instead of wasting your time. Trust me, they’re out there. I met my wonderful husband a few years ago. I was like “God, thank you. I never should have doubted.”

                Now there’s exes telling me that they weren’t ready at the time. Yadayadayada.

                • guerline

                  happy for you. i was with mine 10 years and have a son with him. one morning found out that he was cheating with a friend. never i would have imagine that. so taht is why i said you don’t know people until they show you who they are

                  • SisterTruth

                    That’s terrible. Sorry to hear that, but don’t give up on love or you’ll be doing yourself a disservice.

                    • guerline

                      life happen and you move on. but hard to trust people nowadays.

                    • SisterTruth

                      Trust in God and have faith for the new year. It will work itself out.

                    • guerline

                      yes indeed

            • Cornell Ginger

              Yes and no. Just as good men get passed up, there are a lot of good women who get passed up as well. I’ve rejected and I’ve been rejected. It’s the circle of dating.

              • SisterTruth

                Yes, of course, I know there’s good women getting passed over. However, we weren’t talking about the women at the moment. We were only talking about the men because @guerline wrote that there’s not much black men left. That is all.

            • nycplayboy78

              AMEN..SisterTruth..,,SAY IT AGAIN!!!!!!

      • Cornell Ginger

        Things happen. You never know what happen since you weren’t there. They could’ve been tipsy and one thing led to another. People put to high of a morality code on celebrities as if they’re not human too. I’m pretty sure your child that you have happen out of a mistake. 70% of people alive right now were conceived weren’t planned. At least Luda has the finances to take care of his unplanned child unlike many people I know and I’m sure you know as well.

        • guerline

          you sure the child that i have happen out f a mistake???? are you for real? what do you know about my life??? it happend that i got married, WE plan to have a child that we both wanted. after a year and a half trying, god blessed me with a son when i was sobbing in despair. So before saying things just to say them think before. no one said he did not have the finances to take care of that child, you are so out of the subject. I’am talking about protecting yourself when you are sleeping around, being responsible sexually. if you were a mistake for your parents that’s on them but do not think that most kid that are born were a mistake. that 70% of people that you are talking about are made up..

          • SisterTruth

            It’s always a trip when people assume stuff and don’t get the point of what you’re saying. I tell you!

            • guerline

              lol, exactly

          • Cornell Ginger

            It was an assumption based off the context of your story and statistics, so chill, I didn’t need a drawn out explanation. Whether you agree or not, most people who are born weren’t strategically planned, especially in the black community. Being reckless by not using a condom and being caught up in feelings and supposed trust doesn’t count as planned.

            • guerline

              you just prove what i was saying all along before you start assuming. that is exactly what i was talking about being irresponsible, reckless by sleeping around without protection. when you justify people action by saying he can take care of his child, it has nothing to do with it. just bringing a child into a messy situation, negativity and drama. how do you set exemple for a child when.your action are less then ok???? before you attack people with your assumptions try to get the point first

    • Simone Mackey

      Thank you! That’s messed up on so many levels.
