Shut It Down: Sherri Shepherd Says She’s Not Paying Child Support For Surrogate Child

shepherd not paying child support

WENN

As if the situation weren’t messy enough, TV personality Sherri Shepherd is refusing to pay child support for the child she and estranged husband Lamar Sally agreed to have via surrogate.

TMZ is reporting that Shepherd is refusing to pay support since she believes the surrogacy was a set up by Sally in the first place so that he could make a come up from the child support. Sources close to the couple are saying Shepherd no longer wants custody or to even be considered a parent and get stuck with massive child support payments.

Sally and Shepherd recently filed separate court docs to end their marriage.

The baby is due this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with the couple. The baby is said to have been created with Lamar’s sperm and an egg of the surrogate’s meaning Shepherd has no biological ties to the child. Sources say initially Shepherd opted for in-vitro, but once that was unsuccessful her and Lamar explored surrogacy.

Shepherd is refusing any rights or responsibilities towards the child. She has filed for divorce in New Jersey, while Sally has filed in California. Another twist? After some research, TMZ discovered that New Jersey courts generally do not recognize surrogacy agreements, while California law is somewhat different.

We understand that Shepherd doesn’t want to get taken for a fool, but people really need to consider the decisions they are making and stop using these children (unborn or otherwise) as pawns. There are more important things than money and whether you’re making babies the old-fashioned way or via medical advancements, you really have to consider who you’re procreating with. We hope these two can come to an agreement in the best interest of the child.

    RHODA, I MEANT NO DISRESPECT. ACTUALLY I AM SURPRISED YOU AGREE WITH ME. I MEAN THE SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE SERIOUSLY REVAMPED. IF YOU HAVE NOTICED , BETWEEN THE IRS AND THE WELFARE SYSTEM, THIS COUNTRY IS BEING SEVERELY WEAKENED FROM WITHIN. ANY OUTSIDE CONQUEROR WILL NOT BE AS GENEROUS.

  • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

    I know the REAL reason she went the surrogacy route and didn’t at least use one of her own eggs . . . . .

  • Daniel Gomez

    smh : it is her child, as surely as if she were to give birth. She entered into a contractural agreement with this woman, to carry her child to term. Now she doesn’t want it because her relationship failed with the man. How did you arrive at your conclusion ?

  • Yolanda Harris

    I just want to know who is going to LOVE this child. This is a very unfortunate situation.

  • Adrienne Wright

    why do these white folks and latinos come on black websites 2 talk bad about us??? stay on ur own websites!!! im going 2 start going on you guy’s websites and degrade you!!!! WHO CARES ABOUT UR OPINION AND BIASED STATISTICS???

  • Daleth

    What an obnoxious woman. She’s behaving like a no-good man who gets some woman pregnant and then argues that he shouldn’t have to pay child support because he doesn’t want the child. Too bad, so sad–she agreed to this, she went to lawyers to draw up contracts, she helped pay for this child to be conceived so that she could be its mother. It’s too late to change her mind.

  • SADDDD!!!

    HUSBAND IS A JERK!!!!!

  • Cadence Michaels.

    Which would also explain why Lamar filed for sole custody and child
    support with no visitation or very limited visitation for Sherri. It is
    his biological child, not hers, yet he want’s her to pay child support
    for his child while he sits on his lazy behind. What a butthole. I feel bad
    for the unborn baby, but also for Sherri. She shouldn’t have to take responsibility of the child though. He want’s sole custody. Give him his child and let him get a job to support it.

  • dialogue1

    Sherri picks the wrong men. This is her 2nd disastrous marriage. She needs to be more perceptive and not allow users, takers and cheaters into her life. I’m afraid that she may be financially responsible for this child.

  • Emanise St Cyr

    The people on this site are exactly like bossip

  • flame

    Doesn’t matter what Sherri says about not paying child support because the courts will decide not her, not Sal or their lawyers.

  • flame

    Sherri Shepard is shameful. She already has frozen embryos(multiple) stored from her 1st husband/marriage. She agreed to have a surrogate donate her egg and for her present hubby Sal to fertilize that egg and be it’s father and she be it’s mother. It doesn’t matter if she felt tricked because she was of sound mind and not under the influence of drugs, alcohol and/or coerced. When she first met Sal the first thing he asked her is even she wanted children because he did and she said yes. She made all of the above statements while on the ‘The View” at different/varying times. She spreads all of her private business including how many multiple abortions she has had on ‘The View’. I don’t care for Sal and don’t care for Sherri. She misled him and didn’t tell him about her fertility problems until after they were married. That’s fraud. Who knows maybe he saw a big payday but he did sign the prenuptial agreement she gave him. The first concern by both of them should be that unborn child who didn’t ask to come into this world with these two ignorant people who wanted this baby. They are both responsible financially and everything else that comes with being a parent like it or not. You can’t just dump your biological children, your adopted children and you can’t just drop this child without suffering the consequences no matter what the consequences are. They are both accountable for bringing this child into being and maybe even the surrogate as well who’s caught up in this drama. The child comes first!!!!!!

  • Pamela

    Wow! There are a lot of hateful comments that have nothing to do with the article. That goes to show you that the U.S. has a long way to go, in regards to race relations!

      Thanks Barack!

  • phoenixstarr

    She has no biological ties to this child that still isnt born so i hope she doesnt have to pay child support. Her ex is a triflin scumbag. May she continue to be blessed as she moves foward in life.

    • PT

      The child is not an online order that can be cancelled. Contracts were signed, and a person is only as good as their word. Funny how you only see one of them as a scumbag, and it is not the one who is refusing to take responsibility for her actions.

  • Bridgett Cash

    So glad she was fired from the View.

  • Chocolater Reign

    Some of you can be so mean and one tracked minded.

    Just because someone gets pregnant DOESN’T mean they could or should have that child to raise.
    Some ppl lose the child during pregnancy, during birth, some give up the child for adoption.
    …. Why can’t SHE explore the option of adoption??? Because she’s a celeb -please!!!.

    Would you all rather she raise a child she doesn’t internally care for???
    PPL do change their minds after giving birth and utilizes their RIGHT to give the child up for adoption. If she chooses to do so, it is her right/her choice.
    …. AND if he doesn’t choose to go along with her decision then HE and HE alone should be solely responsible for the care and future of that child, monetarily, emotionally and otherwise.
    —— Contracts are broken everyday ……. Men walk away from their children all the time. Some mothers abandon their children as well.
    It’s NOT like we know of this to even be true BUT if it is …. she is still well within her rights to give that child up for adoption.

    It’s stated that the State she filed for divorce in doesn’t even recognize surrogacy contracts so, Personally I hope it works out in her favor.

    Some just can’t win, when ppl are on the outside looking in. She was trying to be a good wife to that guy(her husband). As a wife she maybe wanted to honor her marriage and be a team player and give him what he wanted. She tried in-vitro, that didn’t work ….. I’m sure at that point she might have said in her mind that it wasn’t meant to be …. BUT as a wife(good wife) she gave in to HIS wishes and NOW this is how he reciprocates her generosity.

    I say, do you SHERRIE!!!
    ***Damned if you DO, Damned if you DON’T***

    • Guest

      My guess is that her surrogate isn’t exactly in the frame of mind to be thinking “do YOU Sherri.” And last I checked, two parents must consent to an adoption if they are married. You just can’t make up laws to suit your selfish needs.

      Sheperd is being irresponsible here. She entered into a contract to bring a child into this world and her heartlessness is shocking. I hope that she gets into a frame of mind to ask herself “what is in the best interest of this child?”

      • Chocolater Reign

        Needless to say that It states that she feels/thinks she was mislead when it came to the contract as well. SO should the contract be binding under false pretenses???

        I think the best interest of the child would be for it to be placed with a family that wants it.

        • Guest

          Being gullible is not a legal defense. Having bad judgment is not a legal defense. Nobody held a gun to Sherri Shepherd’s head. An innocent child deserves support.

          Of course the child is best off in a loving environment with two loving parents. Regardless of where this child lands Sherri Shepherd should pay for its upbringing.

          • Chocolater Reign

            Interesting that you say “SS” should “PAY” for the child cause of entering a contract …….
            A CONTRACT requires MORE than one person to be involved to make it binding. WHAT about the OTHERS that ALSO signed this contract …. SS did not go into this idea all on her own. I’m sure you’re not suggesting that neither of THEM should be EQUALLY responsible for the upbringing of that child??? IF ANYTHING, BOTH should be equally responsible for the child, NOT JUST SS.

            Apparently SS is asking the courts to just allow their pre-nup to remain as it was/is when they agreed to the terms of the pre-nup. It seems that in the pre-nup … It was ALREADY agreed that if they SS & Sal were to ever split/divorce .. She, SS would have soul custody of the child. With that being said, if it’s true. We don’t have to worry about WHO will provide for it. SO it”s not as if she’s trying to ditch the baby like the media led us to think.

    • Bridgett Cash

      It’s probably better for the child that she have nothing to do with it. That really isn’t the issue though. She signed the contract, she is responsible financially. End of story.

    • Ugonna Wosu

      THANK YOU! Said what I was trying to. The child should not be where it is not wanted. It only hurts the child.

  • Chris Roberts

    She should be made to pay, since she signed an agreement to parent the child. I cant stand thisvwoman, to be frank. When she first joined “The View” , she was obnoxious, ignorant, and seemed very desperate, when it came to her personal life and reationships.

  • lea171

    What’s best for the child is that the father raise the child. Sherri is not biologically connected to the child, so in a divorce situation, it’s probably not a good idea for her to be involved. She is more of a stepmother, but a stepmother to a child not yet born and she has not bonded with. It is the father’s responsibility to support his son or daughter.

    • Guest

      Disagree. Sheperd entered into a contract to bring a child into this world. She should be as responsible as the father to support its upbringing. I feel sorry for this child and it isn’t even born yet.

  • James Barbera

    Why criticize her? She is just following the examples of most of the males in the ‘hood !!

  • jamf

    She is not ready to be a real Mom, not just a media Mom. It would be better for the child to be with someone who cares for their children not just themselves. If she hadn’t had the abortions she probable could have had the child herself and might have been better committed to it. Instead she is getting a divorce and moving on with her career. What kind of a Mother is she anyway.

  • Peter Rudy

    ” African – Americans ” are known for not providing for their children . And as their crime statistics show , their parent’s never taught them the difference between right and wrong .

  • WHAT?

    Typical liberal trash. Creates a mess and walks away from it . I don’t want to pay for it . Typical motto

  • Noah

    I am a white man who I admit am at times prejiduce and racist. However I think people are missing some important issues. Sherri filed for divorce from this man. Maybe she can see that it might not be in the best interest of the child to complete this process. I think she is thinking about how divorce affects children and how this child would be starting off in a dividing household. I commend her on thinking ahead and it might end up with this child being adopted by a family ready to have her. I see nothing racist here just someone thinking ahead.

  • linda jones

    Ms Shephard wasn’t really ready for marriage let alone a child. I find her to be a delightful TV personality. But she has a lot on her plate career wise. Tell me when would she have time for quality interaction with a husband or a kid? A 2 week vacation once a year does not count.

    • Guest

      She could make time just like MILLIONS of working mothers do in this country.

  • boo2u

    Sorry Sherri but this child did not ask to be here you and your spouse
    did that. Yes you should pay for the child not to your spouse but the
    child. You can not leave the surrogate holding the bag, she was just the
    oven. You are the owner, this is not a movie that you can just walk out
    on when things are looking bad.

  • James Fadder

    How christian of her.

  • TAM FORRESTER

    For Goodness sake this is not a Black or White issue. How did we get off the subject of a innocent baby to Race. There is a baby that is about to be born to a Father who may or may not want the baby so that he can get a big check every month to raise the baby. A woman who I am very sure had to have signed legal papers in order for this baby to be created and now because she is angry at the father she no longer wants the baby. She wanted the baby to start with until the divorce. This baby did not ask to be born to either of these two nuts. The best thing they could do is give the baby up for adoption to a set of parents who will raise and love it as their own and not for money. Plus if she really feels this was then I hope Jeffrey’s Father gets full custody of him. If she is willing to put in the media that she wants nothing to do with this innocent baby (that is not biologically hers as she is now stating) then she does not need children at all. They need to stop taking their anger for each other and money out on this little baby. Shame on both of them and God Bless both of these kids.

    • Ugonna Wosu

      you lost me at the last couple of lines. Her feelings toward this baby are independent from how she feels towards Jeffrey.

  • justsayn

    IF she doesn’t want the child she’d be a lousy parent to it. Dump her Lamar and raise your own kid. With your own money. You’ll be happy and the kid will be healthier and happier without all the bs surrounding him.

    “…she believes the surrogacy was a set up by Sally in the first place so that he could make a come up from the child support.”

    What does “make a come up” mean?

  • Don B Cooper

    Her surrogate child, Orca, lives at Seaworld and is well cared for.

  • MomsFan

    Jeez…I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s wrong on so many levels. Shepherd should be ashamed of herself.

  • John Sadders

    Article is rude…….Why the rude comment at the end….Sherri has no ties what-so-ever to this child…..The child does have a tie with the father Sally…So what’s the problem? The kid has a father……If Sherri has no biological ties it is legal for her to give up any part she has with the unborn child……..

    • Rebel_Lady

      Even if the child was biologically hers, she could most likely just sign away her parental rights and not have to pay child support.

      • Richard Sutton

        That does not work, How many bio father would like that to be fact. They still have to pay child support.

        • Rebel_Lady

          It happened with my sister’s ex. Maybe it’s because her current husband adopted her son. I guess that’s the difference.

          • Richard Sutton

            Yes, yes it is, I’ve looked it up because my ex and the mother of my daughter wanted to give up her parental rights and I did look it up. As far as I am concern she gave up her parental rights when she married her boy friend, who was convicted of inappropriate and indecent act with a minor under 16.

            • Rebel_Lady

              smh. I have some criminals in my family, but the only one I do not have anything to do with is the child molester. It happened over thirty years ago, but I don’t want him near me, my sisters or our young’uns. I don’t see how a mother can knowingly marry someone like that.

              • Richard Sutton

                She did, He admitted to her that he touch her,but, he thought it was the girls mother. I am not sure why women will falls for some one like that,but I am bless that I now have my daughter with me.
                My daughter is far better off with me than with her “MOTHER”. The 6 years that I had custody, her mother only came to see her two times, one Christmas Card, and nothing for her birthday. After I got custody I found out that at least once she went to play BINGO and left my daughter in the car and I got her when she was still in the first grade.

                • Rebel_Lady

                  Your daughter is so blessed to have you. According to my sister, her ex had no interest in seeing his son and only sent him something for his birthday or Christmas occasionally. That’s according to her and she isn’t the most trustworthy person in the world.

                  • Richard Sutton

                    No, I am the one who is Blessed, She is keeping me young and yes she is your typical teenager. She is no longer my ‘little girl’ that is growing up way to fast. This something I realize will happen, but, I am trying to go with the flow. I also am in the process teaching how to cook, and hopefully to eat and cook healthy.
                    I am giving her the freedom that she needs, maybe not the freedom she wants. Please pray for me to have the wisdom to raise her right.

    • Guest

      Not so fast. There will be a consequence to her entering a surrogate contract.

  • Carlos del Gato

    She is acting just like all of those who hate her want her to act – like a spoiled brat not getting her way. She SIGNED the contract for the child after she was deemed NOT A CHILD BEARER any longer. That’s why Sally is making sure that the divorce takes place in California so she gets really screwed over (which IMO she deserves).

  • Oklahomawoman

    Not sorry to see her go from The View now.Maybe this is a glimpse into the kind of person she is.

  • Oklahomawoman

    she believes the surrogacy was a set up by Sally in the first place “so that he could make a come up from the child support. ” Anyone else find this terrible writing?WTF?

    • Rebel_Lady

      She believes it is a setup? Didn’t she sign the contract as well?

  • rube

    she should be forced to pay…this is not some shoe or piece of fruit you buy and decide you don’t want it’s a life…she chose to create this life she should take care of it. She can’t change her mind when it’s too late she should pay next time really think about your decisions deadbeat….(welcome to most athletes nightmare)

    There are just no easy answers in this. I am not sure what is to be said that she had multiple abortions and is now not claiming this child. God may be saying something here…..and it may be in her best interest to pay attention.

      Abortion doesn’t have anything to do with this.

  • Experience10

    U guys R getting off the subject. The courts will figure this out…& she probably will loose something. A signed agreement is just that. Cannot believe she was already having problems before the surogatcy thing came up. But if she don’t want the baby, it will B better off without her.

    She’s being very selfish. This is a child. She agreed to have the child. It is not a divorce bargaining tool. I can’t respect people who turn their backs on a child, biological or not.

    “her and Lamar explored surrogacy” Good God, don’t you even have to have a rudimentary education to be a “reporter” anymore?

  • Abbie1530

    Clearly this is not her biological child and it hasn’t even been born yet. It is her estranged husband’s child with a surrogate. Salley and the surrogate are are the unborn child’s biological parents. I hope she had all of this surrogacy checked out by a lawyer and protected her rights in case of divorce. I could see if they had adopted the child, but I think Salley had a plan to do this all along to get more money out of Ms. Shepherd when the relationship turned sour. I told my aunt six weeks after they wedding that something was wrong in the marriage. Sherri was not herself very early on and probably knew she made mistake.

  • Olav

    Looks like an Obama to me.

  • jtrose

    Babies cannot be held in a contract that was cancel before their birth. The contract was for a married couple to add a child into their already happy home. A unemployed homeless man can’t adopt a child using only the funds he will receive through the adoption.

    • Guest

      You do not understand anything about the laws of surrogacy…or this contract!

      • jtrose

        Life has no contract. Billy Bob Just walk away from Angela Jolie that had adopted Max.

  • hottlanta

    At least she is having a baby by another woman beside her cousin or her husband’s other girlfriend the way white people do. Honey Boo Boo at it’s finest. If I see another episode on Dateline where the sister in law is having sex with her brother in law Imma scream. I would never forget a case where this woman was married to this man for years and the child got sick, dad took the child to the doctor, doctor told dad child wasn’t his. Dad had the other kids tested and the 3 other kids out of the 4 wasn’t his kids but he still gotta pay child support and his wife boyfriend even got on the stand and testified how long this man and his wife has been seeing each other. So this puts a big hole in the purity” of white women ask Angelina Jolene. So this Sherri Shephard soap opera ain’t got nothing on white folks.

  • framinghammer

    What does it mean “make a come up” from the child support?

    • LiiSH

      It means the person wanting the child support is hoping to get those (at least) 5 figure child support payments so that they can live off the money, instead of just using it on the child.

      • framinghammer

        I can infer that, and I appreciate you trying to help me. I am commenting on the woeful style and grammar from the writer. “Make a come up” is not proper English.

  • jtrose

    Lamar will confuse the baby with what is the role of Mother and father. Daddy don’ stay home cooking and cleaning waiting on a check from mommy. Sherrie didn’t want any more kids. He beg her relentlessly just to take full custody and claim support. The deal has been broken. So it is the surrogate and Lamar baby. He should try to collect childsupport from the surrogate.

  • stephanie hale

    she should not have to pay for a child that not her. she and the surrogate have a contract
    that will pay for all her needed . and then the baby will be the mother. why should she pay
    child support to the suggorgate after the baby is born. she not with the child.. that crazy..

    • LiiSH

      She would be paying child support to her ex husband.The surrogate has no legal rights over the child. That is what the contract is for. Sherri thinks her hubby only talked her into having the surrogate so he could collect child support checks.

    • guest

      Sherri should pay because there would have been no surrogate if she did not sign a contract. Sherri is despicable.

  • Connie

  • Bee Dubyu

    This should be treated as if she is the biological mother. This should be a binding contract with no escape. Her only out should be that the father allows her to give up her parental rights. The only way both should be allowed to give up their rights is that the surrogate would agree to it or they put the child up for adoption. Otherwise the both should be totally responsible for the child until age 18.

    This is so sad beyond measure. Sherri was of sound mind when she signed that contract and obviously wanted a child since she tried in vitro treatments. She is disgusting for abandoning this baby. I hope they slap her the highest child support payments allowable by law. Her husband is no saint but she agreed to bring a child in this world and should be held accountable.

    • Justin Morgan

      American women abandon their own flesh and blood children every day when they abort them. Of course, Americans are motivated by $$$ and cause more death and destruction on earth than any other nationality.

    • framinghammer

      Her attorney will rightfully argue that this contract was fraudulently entered into by her soon-to-be ex. If he planned to use this baby as his meal ticket all along, that is fraud. He hid a material fact and she relied on it. It would be nice if we weren’t talking about a baby.

      • Guest

        Her attorney will argue that and they will lose! Sherri was of sound mind when she married her husband. She was of sound mind when she signed the surrogacy contract. Even if her husband did take advantage of her, stupidity on Sherri’s part is NOT A DEFENSE!

        • framinghammer

          “Even if her husband did take advantage of her” that’s the fraud part, and that is grounds to void a contract – thank you for making my case for me. “Stupidity is not a defense” The only one who brought stupidity into this you, I am afraid.

  • kd8033

    what a sleaze. She signed all the papers but does not want to pay child support. Guess she really wanted the baby.

  • pats

    You can’t order a child in a catalog and then decide you don’t want it and want it returned like a pair of shoes! You planned this now pay for it. The child is a human being. I’m sure there are a lot of legal issues before the surrogacy so live with it!

  • LEM

    This is a person who just a few years ago didn’t know if the world was flat or round.

  • elder

    Many courts in this country are forcing men who aren’t the biological father of their ex-wifes children to pay child support all in name of what’s best for the child. Instead of forcing the woman to reveal the real father the courts take the easy route and make the man pay for his ex-wifes infidelity.

  • SuperTrooper1420

    What a mess. This is why you have to THINK before you bring a child into your life – whether you conceive, adopt or use a surrogate. Good Lord. SMH.

  • September Courtney

    As far as I’m concerned, race has nothing to do with this. She wanted this child. She went through all the steps to have this child. Now, because she is getting divorced, she doesn’t want this child because she doesn’t want to pay child support? If she were a man doing this, everyone’s head would be exploding. The only thing that should matter right now are the children. The fact that she is more concerned about her bank account is revolting.

  • jennifer9999

    OMG! All these black/white comments. That’s not the point here. There’s a baby coming into the world who needs to be provided life’s basics. If Sheri signed an agreement then’s she’s in the hot seat however I ‘get it’ with her take on no biological connection thus no child support. It’s up to the biological father (Sally) to take care of his offspring. However, with the contract there’s little doubt Sheri ‘will’ be paying child support. Appears Sheri is not the only woman having a man want money from her-for the child OK but to support him for 18 plus years? How very sad for today’s woman.

  • Kirk

    Just because the marriage didn’t work, doesn’t mean that the agreement to have a child and take responsibility for the child is negated. I don’t care how much child support she might have to pay, she went through the process of creating a child, which would not have been, if she didn’t agree to the contract.

    This would be a different situation if the surrogate wanted to keep it or claim paternal rights and Mrs. Sheppard was still with the father.

    I hope this child finds a parent that wants to take on that responsibility.

  • Bree Zee

    She agreed to have the child with her soon to be ex. It’s her child regardless of what she wants now.

  • IDONTCARE

    I know it’s wrong but I don’t blame Sherry, men have been doing this to women for years. His sorry behind already had a list of things he wanted Sherry to take care of for the baby while he sits on his behind. If he truly wanted the child he too should man up and take care of the child and stop trying to live off of Sherry.

    • Guest

      Sherri Sheperd is an adult. She needs to put her big-girl panties on and take care of her responsibilities which is this soon-to-be child.

  • Christina G.

    Sorry, you don’t get to change your mind after you create a baby, whether you did so via contract or the old-fashioned way.

    • Justin Morgan

      Apparently you do, if the surrogate mother is claiming no moral or legal responsibility for this child.

      • Guest

        LOL. You completely missed the point.

  • Lilly

    It seems that the dear baby is being brought into this world for all the wrong reasons. If the biological mother does not want the baby, I believe the baby should be placed for adoption so he or she will know a loving family who want a baby for all the right reasons.

  • NoMoNeNe

    Woman is a pig. Dumb as a bag of hair also. That unborn kid is way better off not having that thing for a mother.

  • concerned

    …as confirmed by most of the comments, people are easily distracted…the point is that this woman is morally and legally bound to support this child…if she did not avail herself of the law previously she should certainly not be able to use it as an excuse now…

  • BaybeK8s

    I wonder why Sherri is assuming Sal will get custody of the baby? She won’t get much child support from Sal (based on his work history) but, if she is granted the baby wouldn’t the judge make him get a job to pay for the child? I’m sure there is more to this story. (Sounds like a future storyline for one of “exploit ‘em” Mona’s shows. Js)

  • jillrudisill

    I don’t care who you are or what color your skin is when you agree to bring a human life into this world you are responsible and obligated to that child rather you like it or not or change your mind or whatever. The woman that agreed to carry this baby for them wasn’t pregnant until they made a agreement with her and signed a contract. That contract is binding and will be upheld in a court of law. Sherry doesn’t want to pay child support to bad you made your bed and now you have to lay in it as well as your husband. I don’t think either one of them are worthy or good enough for this baby. The thing is they are going to pay rather they like it or not. People like them are what hurts others that are really wanting to have a baby. This isn’t something that you can return to a store it is a human life that they said they wanted. If she doesn’t want the baby then the baby is better off without her but she damned well should have to support the baby it is her and her husband doing that made this happen to begin with. Time for them to man up and take responsibility. This baby became her child when she signed on the dotted line.

    • 1Val

      Not entirely true for there have been cases of adoptive and foster parents returning children they did not want for whatever reason.

      • Sean

        But this surrogate has the right to sue Sherri and her husband. If the woman has to take care of that child, she can possibly sue then for child support.

        • 1Val

          Perhaps we shall see.

    • Justin Morgan

      U.S. courts have countless times relieved citizens of their contractual duties. To start with divorce. Civil marriage, including the new fad of “gay marriage” are predicated on “marriage” being only contractual (not sacramental). Yet people get divorced all the time and U.S. courts recognize the two parties dissolving their contractual arrangements.

      But more importantly, U.S. courts have more than once allowed American citizens to get out of “rent-to-own” contracts and other contracts. It’s called “judicial activism” which is something Democrats and liberals tend to love.

      And U.S. courts allow women to abort their children–that is to say U.S. courts have ruled women are not obligated to give birth to the children they have created through sex.

      A lot of court rulings in the United States are political and influenced by lobbying from LGBT and feminist and liberals that push “judicial activism.”

      I’m not a Republican by the way. But I’m educated enough to know the USA is run on a lot of BS.

      • Guest

        You are comparing the right to divorce (contract dissolution with agreement on the part of both parties) with this one-sided surrogacy challenge? You did not attend law school.

        • Justin Morgan

          I compared “judicial activism” where U.S. courts have allowed impoverished Americans to get out of the contracts they signed with “rent-to-own” stores. Cases in which the stores took such people to court to get the rest of the money contractually owed them.

          And I already stated in my first paragraph that U.S. courts allow both parties to dissolve their marriages. My point was contracts can be gotten out of.

  • dolly6565

    After reading this item, I read the comments, and of course it became racist right off. The item should be about people with more money than sense. It is so sad that this child is being used as a pawn of bad judgement. Whether black or white or whatever, I see children born or unborn being used by people of bad judgement and both of them should have to pony up for this child’s life to 18. And the surrogate is caught in a position that will undoubtedly be thought about by other women before they agree to be a surrogate for people who will take parenthood seriously.

  • tweetybird

    Come on now, commenters. This is not a black or white issue. It is purely about a child who did not ask to be born and a “mother” who isn’t taking the child’s needs into account. It is the child who matters, period.

  • Larry Mondelo

  • Michelle

    This article is funny…full of grammatical error and I am amused that you call the unborn a child. I thought that was a no no? You know woman’s rights and all.

  • Lauretta Payne

    What a low-life! If she AGREED to the surrogacy, then the child IS hers and both parties should pay support. If the husband did this, they’d throw him in jail… they should do the same with her.

  • Starkey Farms

    shame on her. The surrogate went into this contract thinking she was helping someone who desperately wanted a baby have one & now she is in the situation as to weather she will give this child to a father alone.IT is her child the minute she signed that contract & followed thru with allowing it to go forward

  • InvisibleZombie

    Despite all of the heated opinions I suppose it might come down to a legal issue, with the contract she signed. I once read the book “A Mother’s Story” about the “Baby M” surrogacy case and that might have some legal precedence over this contract. Personally, it does sound like she has a legal obligation, but again it may depend on who has custody and how the contract is written.

    And why mention “massive” child support payments? Wouldn’t the monetary figure depend on who has custody, and really why any higher than an average child support case?

    massive child support payments

  • g gentry

    I can see both sides of the argument. Both have some merit. However, we are talking about a child not a car or a house. If you requested the child, then you should accept responsibility.

    • BaybeK8s

      I too see both sides of the argument. I was originally looking at it from the point of the baby not being of Sherri’s egg. It is sad Sherri was too slow to see Sal for what he really is… a lazy bum.

  • Linda7

    People and their greed make me absolutely sick. That poor child. Horrible to squabble over money and lose sight of what actually matters- the life of an innocent child who does not deserve to be dragged through the dramatic, selfish, hateful problems of people clearly not fit to be parents. Nauseating. God help that poor, sweet child.

  • Gary T

    Can you say, “deadbeat TV host.”

  • Rosehippi2000

    She agreed on the creation of that life with her husband and the surrogate (Who would not other wise be pregnant with a life about to be born) now she must hold up her end of the agreement to support the life she helped decide be born. That baby is lucky that evil woman isn’t her or his mama… have no idea what daddy or the surrogate is like but I feel sop sorry for that baby… born into that disgusting, twisted mess.
    Do what is right for the child.

    Yes, she was taken for a fool, but that doesn’t not absolve her of any responsibility for the child. She knowingly decided to bring a new life into the world with a golddigger, and now she must pay up…. the same way that a man who gets a golddigger pregnant must support that child.

    If Sherry signed off on this baby as hers, then she needs to accept her share of the responsibility. This baby was created because of her. It did not ask to be born. It does not care who supports it. But it does need to be supported and if Sherry agreed to parent the child, then she does have responsibility for it. Like it or not.

    This baby is not Shepherds and like her or not she is correct Since Sally is the father he should have every right to his child as well as supporting his soon to be baby. This man only wanted a pay check and I believe he set this whole ordeal up. Shepherd should not be held accountable to pay Sally child support for his own baby. Hate her all you want Sally is the baby father. So let him run around crying his sad sob story to anyone who want to listen but the con-artist should be left holding the bag. Sorry that a baby is about to be born due to his trickery to claim a pay check. He need to go get himself a job and work for a living. Men like him make me sick. Shepherds gets blame for Sally’s con game.

    Looks like this site was created to cause a race war. Men and women no matter what color, tend to be careless about sex and their sexual partners.

  • Betsy Ann

    PROOFREAD!!

  • al

    They really screwed over the female pregnant with the child. I mean I don’t care what is happening, you agreed and signed the documents I’m sorry but this isn’t something you should be able to back out of. I honestly believe she should pay the child support because the female was kind enough to lend her body so another couple could have a child, then you’re simply going to put the responsibility on her really?

  • Guest

    She agreed and signed a contract. Just because they are divorcing does not give her the right to renig on the contract. The smartest thing to do is to pay like they promised, splitting the costs and give the baby up for adoption to a family who cannot have children. Problem solved. But, it would be pretty selfish and rotten on both their parts to refuse to pay for this surrogate mother who so generously agreed to use her body to carry their baby. This is pathetic for sure on both their parts.

  • Fran

    It will most likely come down to where the Surrogate lives and gives birth. Since she is carrying a child from her own egg (which should never be done.) and not that of an egg donor, she can and may be ruled the mother in New Jersey. But if she’s in California, and gives birth in California and that is where the contract was drafted and signed, then Sherri will have to take custody of the child and pay child support if her ex gets custody. It’s really a shame because the child has nothing to do with their troubles. Both should grow up and take responsibility for the life they agreed to create. Joint custody between the two of them. And Sally really needs to get a job and support himself and his child. That is what a real man does. Sherri needs to focus on her children and do the right thing.

  • Richie Boone Anderson-Grant

  • davidmdb33

    If you sign a surrogacy or agreement for AID(Artificial Insemination by Donor), you are just as liable for any child born during a marriage. That is the standard for a man and should be no less for this plump excuse for a woman or adult.

  • M

    hmmm, how many men have paid child support for children that they did not father? She signed the agreement then she should pay to support the child (a child that has not even been born yet and she is filing for divorce, perhaps she should have looked at her relationship before agreeing to the surrogacy).

  • akakakana

    I think the reasoning behind Sherri’s decision to back out of the adoption is because she feels betrayed. I’m not saying I agree with her decision, but I can understand where she is coming from. If a guy lied and made me believe that he truly loved me, while all along it was a tactic to obtain money from me, I would feel some kind of way too.

    • Dark Angel

      If that is the case, then you should never sign a legal document in conjunction with another person.

  • denniel

  • Dee P.

    Lamar filed for full custody of this unborn baby, with no visiting rights by Sherri, so why should she have to pay for a child she has no biological ties to? She shouldn’t. This is his problem. He wanted the baby, so he can shoulder the responsibility for it. He’s a cheating dog anyway, and Sherri needs to be more careful who she exposes her son, Jeffrey, to anymore. This marriage was doomed from the beginning.

    • Dark Angel

      Regardless, she should still be responsible for the contract she agreed to sign.

  • Susan Munoz

    She is just a piece of low life trash. To contract to bring a child into this world and then back out is a sin and disgraceful. I bet her soon to be ex is so happy she doesn’t want the child because he did. She has no talent, no common sense and is a complete waste of a human being. She should be so ashamed of herself.

  • smilingdon

    Wow this is a surprise.

  • LizzyB

    She has the right to chose not to be this baby’s mother as her egg wasn’t used and since I from what I have read, her ex-husband wants full custody of this baby. He doesn’t want her to be the mother just the cash cow and the baby is one way he is trying to accomplish that. You really do have to be careful who you marry these days and maybe that is why so many celebrities and others are opting for parenting without marriage. Not good for the family structure but pre-nups just aren’t ironclad.

    I don’t care whether it’s her egg or not. I don’t even care whether there’s a contract or not. The simple fact of the matter is that there wouldn’t be a child without her active and willing consent and participation. To me, that means she should bear some financial responsibility.

  • DianeC

    This is a tough one. I dont necessarily defend her decision, but when her husband filed divorce papers, he also filed for sole custody of this child, citing the fact that Sherri is not biologically connected to the child. So, by his own words, why should she then be financially responsible for it?? It was clear that the husband had some weird motives in this situation. Again, not defending her, I’m just saying that I don’t think we all know the whole story.

    I could give a flying F about Sherry Shepherd or hersoon to be ex-husband.Who the hell decides to have a child while months away from filing for divorce in the first place. Especially one of this magnitude.It took planning. The one I feel sorry for is the child, brought into this world as an afterthought now, not wanted by the mom-to-be, not wanted probably by the surrogate, and will end up with good ol’ Lamar, who has been unemployed and living off his wife for how long?

    Ms Shepherd is long famous for being a devout Christian…now someone please tell me what is even close to Christian-like by this behavior? Yes, an unborn child who should never have been conceived, but will be here soon. Selfish, self absorbed people in all of this. It’s disgusting all around. That poor, poor child to be born into this.

  • Linda Layer

    I agree with the statement about her signing a contract. This is not a puppy that you can take back to the pound. I do not care whether she is black, white or purple. Leave it to a celebrity to muddy the waters when it comes to surrogacy. Maybe the child is better off without either of them.

    Sherri Shepherd is scum to even try to pull such a stunt. What does this cretin thinks happens to children in a divorce, they just “puff” dissappear? We are talking a child here, not an on-line order that you can refuse.

    This is as bad as Torry Ann Hansen.

    People who refuse to take responsibility for their own actions is one of the big problems in this country.

  • Paul Broach

    I’m pretty sure my wife tricked me into having children. If Sherrie Sherpard doesn’t have to pay child support, does that mean I can stop my payments? Pretty sure that won’t work.

  • Mnsoda

    She’s a piece of work that one. Glad she got fired from the view.

  • woo soo

    women don’t pay…they get paid…where have you been?

  • LC

    Sherri is obviously is not ready to be a Mother. How can you plan for a child, and then just cast the child away, because you and baby daddy, no longer get along. I just pray the
    child ends up in a happy home, and never has to hear about this ” planned to be”, ” now don’t want to be a mama to you child ” drama.

  • Donna Baccaro

    Let him deal with it! The baby is not hers and the tables are turned now. It has been happening to women forever….hows it feel?? I hope she wins this because men have been calling the shots waaaay too long! He’s stuck like bazillions of women through time! lol Love it!

  • Ed

    I wonder if she (Sherri) wasn’t really fired from the View but quit so her income will now be less. This way she could reduce the amount of child support or alimony she could possibly have to pay. Judge I ain’t got me no job. Hmmmmmm

  • rudy torres

    she made a choice to begin with and now she changes her mind she’s a dead beat mom

  • DanHart

    Just more degenerate ghetto slime and immoral swill that continues to infect the morality of this nation. Useless, illiterate, racist filth ruining our nation with their sub human practices.

  • Amber

    This situation only hurts the child. The poor thing is innocent in this whole situation, and now has no one to love it. The surrogate mother, although biological, obviously had no plans to keep the child if she agreed to being a *surrogate*… and if the story is true, and the father is using this child as a weapon, then what does that say about him being a father?

    She needs to step up, be a woman, and look after the child she so desperately wanted. She brought this baby into the world through her contract and her money, she needs to do what’s right by it now.

  • Guestest

    Sherri is a disgusting person. Honestly, the child would be better off without both Sherri and her ex husband. I feel sorry for the baby only!

  • gungal

    Uhh what a mess.

  • Hawk8414

    To me, things started going down hill when Sal was on the show one day and told the whole pane about her going through his wallet and helpign herself to his money! Whoopie jumped on Sherri hard about that and told her about doing that, but Sherri said what mine is mine and what’s his is mine,too! I knew right then and there this was not gonna last! I knew that marriage was doomed to fail but this surrogate stuff came right out of the blue.

    I remember Sherri running her mouth telling everybody, ” I’m gonna make this work! I am, I am!” I know some of you remember hearing her say that,too.
    I thought,uh,huh. I know this is BS right now. and look how it is turning out. So much for making it work.

  • David

    Shepherd has no biological ties to the child – I guess if it is not hers, then the other two must come up with some sort of plan to support it. Another unwanted baby to be born.

  • trojanal

    Just another low life leftist.

  • vici_rose

    The author of this poorly written article should be ashamed.

  • zakyajo

    how did this become a race issue?

    • Guestest

      When KIR12 decided to generalize black women…

  • blueyedlorelie

    She’s got a lot of troubles right now, but she’ll survive them because she’s talented. Try to work out something reasonable for the sake of the child. If nothing else, you’re morally obligated.

  • X

    Whats new? Men have been screwed into paying for children that aren’t theirs before, it seems only fair she gets a taste. She signed a contract after all, most guys don’t even get that chance.

  • hsmom3

    Sherri is showing how petty she is. It’s not the child’s fault, even if it were a set up. She still signed a contract.

    But really, this writer needs to go back to English class. “….unsuccessful her and Lamar explored surrogacy”, that should be ‘she and Lamar…”. “…want to get taken for a fool…” should be ‘be taken for a fool’, “…consider who you’re procreating with.” you should never leave ‘with’ dangling at the end of a sentence.

    Good grief

  • Robert Young

    flip the script and and she would be screaming over the airways about the ” lowlife”

  • 28 Billion Dollar Man

    Sherri Shepherd is a POS Pig! if she doesn’t pay put that cow in Prison!

  • Lorraine

    The words of the agreement will govern. If this woman signed an agreement, she is bound by its terms. While a sharp lawyer may try to claim that the woman was incapable of forming a valid contract because she’s a left wing lunatic and as such, mentally incompetent, I don’t think that’s gones ta’ fly. Therefore, she’s gots to pay the PIPE-R.

  • FakeOne Dust

    I lost total respect for this woman. What a douchebag Sherri Shepherd turned out to be. Stop treating children like they are pets.

  • Jenna Ry A N

    when a woman gets pregnant from a man other than a husband during the marriage, her husband is the legal father of the child, whether biologically related or not. Subsequently, I am sure that the courts will rule that she is the legal mother to this child,,whether she likes it or not.

    • anonymouse

      Didn’t happen to kris humphries

  • Denise

    You all are so blinded by color..The fact is color is clearly not the problem. It all has to do with money. She doesn’t want to pay child support for her child. She is also responseable for this live has blessed her with. Baby s are gift from God you should embrace not toss aside like a old pair of shoes. I hope and prayer the Judge does the right thing and make her pay. If she doesn’t take responsibility she is piece of crap just like other DEAD BEAT PARENT

  • skier

    She is just mad because because she has old eggs!

  • hcard

    The child didn’t ask to be brought into this world. It was both their decisions, and they both are responsible for it, regardless of biological ties. Shame on her for treating the baby like an dog to get rid of when it suits her!!

  • MAC

    I’d love to have another child. I’ve lost multiple fetus. Send the unloved child who will always be a tool for manicupation for its parents, to a family that will love it. Send it here!

  • Dollhouse

    Good for her…let his loser self take care of HIS baby!!!

  • Layla13

    When all this broke I said probably donor eggs at her age and saw all kinds of posts defending her that OH NO she froze her eggs, women can have babies with their own eggs at these ages (a very few, yes, most no) etc., these celebrities lie through their teeth about these babies late in life and fool average women into thinking they can have several children this late or even one, most of them use younger eggs and lie, not all but most.
    Guarantee if the marriage would not have gone south she would still be shouting oh I had my eggs frozen or we were ‘just blessed,’ at this late stage, etc. What is sad is the children are the pawns again, these celebrities buy them like they are designer handbags or new cars when there are average people struggling with infertility (we have a relative going through it), that would give anything to take care of any child, hers biologically or not. You played now you pay, what a dirt bag, how many abortions?? If a man did this she would be the first one screaming he should be castrated.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    what a loser she is.

  • Xzamilio

    Yup… that’s right, Sherri. Show us what a good Christian woman you are. And of course, you gotta love the blatant double standard in the comment section. If she were a man, it wouldn’t even be a conversation.

  • Aleric

    This is exactly what will happen when you allow people to create children as if they are pets to pick up from the pound, when the novelty wears off the child is abandoned since the don’t consider it theirs.

  • Hotter Than Hell

    That’s what these people get with surrogacy. If you can’t have a child naturally and choose not to adopt, then that’s the way it was meant.

    I don’t blame Sherri, if she has no biological ties, I would petition the court or whatever to have my name removed from the parental agreement. This undoubtedly was a ploy by Sally to get money from Shepard.

  • F Brown

    Wow, a black person not paying for her child…shocking… That never happens

    • Guestest

      Wow, a white person coming on black blogs just to stereotype and hate… shocking… That never happens

  • ric.chaz

    Wanna find the biggest hypocrites, find the most holier-than-thou people. She had no issue believing that humanity started with the bible and there was no proof that the earth was round, but try and make her pay for a baby she created with 2 people, and she is no where to be find. Wonder what Jesus would say about that.

  • skier

    What a scum bag! I hope the guy takes her court and sue her for child support.

  • Billof Rights

    They both agreed to surrogacy by contract before they became estranged, and both wanted to be parents. Nothing has changed since then other than their marital status. You don’t walk away from parenting. Millions of adoptive parents have no biological ties to their children, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be or aren’t parents. Shepherd needs to quit pouting, grow up, and take responsibility for her actions and choices.

  • Simba711

    She’s full of it. All she talked about was having a baby. She wanted another child very badly. She could not carry one so they paid someone to do it. That unborn child is her and her soon to be ex husband’s child. She signed legal papers. If it were a man, folks would be going off on him.

  • martha

    Sorry, Sherri, but a baby is not like a brand new pair of shoes you just bought, you can’t just change your mind and return it to the store. If you love Jesus, like you say you do, ask him to give you the 411.

    In comes yet another unwanted child to this world. #SoSad :(

  • jag

    …she and Lamar-not her and Lamar. Professionally written material should be grammatically correct. Right? She is a subjective pronoun. Her is the object of a verb.

    • Sunflowers67

      Agreed! I’m appalled at the quality of the grammar in Internet articles. Are these writers even literate? Zero quality control. No one’s proofing or editing.

  • dh

    I think the biggest tragedy is that somebody thinks they’re a professional writer but uses “once that was unsuccessful her and Lamar explored surrogacy” in a published piece.

  • fred

    She’s not biologically related–she should not have to pay a dime.

  • Adriana

    She should still pay the surrogate but since her soon to be ex husband wants custody of the child then he can pay for his child, it isnt her child and it wont be since she doesnt want custody of it so she shouldnt have to pay child support.

  • Ann Tankersley

    Regardless of how she feels about her ex-spouse, it is not the child’s fault and if she were a decent human being she would honor the valid contract she entered into willingly.

  • savedD

    Now this is why The View booted her..It’s a PR shitstorm

  • stephanie Wissler

    This is not a race thing,it is a person thing. Race is not what is at stake here a child is. Stop With The Race Crap.

  • montanaGal2011

    wow. way to make a child feel unwanted. publicly fight over who has to take care of it.

  • El_Guapo_01

    Stay classy, Sherri. Do not penalize the child for your bad relationships.

  • kellymitch

    “she believes the surrogacy was a set up by Sally in the first place so that he could make a come up from the child support.”….am I not ghetto enough? What the hell does that mean?
    These people are idiots.

  • Big Mac

    There is NO DNA that connects her to the child. HIS DNA, does connect him to the child. So, surely, if HE wants a divorce, he can just go ahead and take his kids with him. He cant just go out and impregnate another woman, and expect Sherri to foot the bill, as he’s filing divorce papers for child support. Sherri paid for the procedure so that he could have a child to call his own, what a gracious gift. Next time he might be a little more careful about what he wishes for.

      In other words… He sounds like a woman! (Many women want full custody and child support.)

      • skier

        Imagine if roles were reversed and he didn’t want to pay child support? The feminists would eat him alive!

  • windel Vernon

    Biologically Shepherd may not be connected, but if she agreed to the surrogacy, she’ll pay and in the legal process of disputing that responsibility, her career will suffer.

  • Dianne

    She isn’t the brightest person just the loudest.

  • TheDuchessXOXO

    I don’t know if i believe this one. Sherri doesn’t sound like the type of person to say she doesn’t want to be “considered a parent” to the child, And “no longer wants custody”.She has been talking about having another paper on her show for YEARS. This is all just a sad situation.

  • astroguy54

    Such a good Christian she claims to be! LMAO.

  • 1Max_Wedge1

    I see women get want to be treated as equals unless it comes to child support. Pay up, honey. If a man did this you would be the first to call him a deadbeat.

  • Ava

    “Sources say initially Shepherd opted for in-vitro, but once that was unsuccessful her and Lamar explored surrogacy.” Her and Lamar? What the hell is happening to correct grammar?!

  • Kate

    This woman is in serious need of a moral compass!

    She’s been quoted lately as saying she’s had so many abortions, that she can’t even remember the number … now she refuses to support this child that she had to have agreed to …. she’s a total low-life, piece of crap. Glad she’s off The View!

  • JayMan

    If Sherri was a guy – the whole country would be screaming “dead beat dad.”

  • MLM

    Am I surprised that a liberal woman doesn’t to accept responsibility for a life she is brining into this world. NOPE That being said if the judge lets her off that will end surrogates as we know it. Stop up Shepherd that lady wouldn’t be pregnant if it weren’t for you and your husband.

  • astroguy54

    She is willing to pay thousands for her stupid wigs but not a penny for the child who wouldn’t exist were it not for her??? She is the lowest of the low. And to the article writer and the editor, to write “her and Llamar explored surrogacy” instead of “SHE and Llamar…” is a grammatical mistake not even a 4th grader would make.

  • dadnabbit

    OH NO !!! MIss Moral Compass for the Masses doesn’t want the responsibility of massive child support payments for a child she contracted to have brought into this world.?!? GET OVER YOURSELF MISSY. But then again, this is just another case of racial abandonment and as I always say, statistics are created by actions.

  • Wes Sauter

    Same as adoption Sherri. Quit being a dead beat mama and pay your dues.

  • Sharyn Bass

    You wanted the child, Sherri, now take care of it like a “mother” should!

    • Guestest

      Plain & simple.

  • OKMomandsuch

    WHAT?? That’s low. I’m sorry, but even if it’s not her biological child, it is a child she wanted/planned to bring into the world. Just stunned that she hopes to walk away from this. There needs to be a “deadbeat dad” phrase for a mom who is just as worthless.

  • Jane

    Every woman has the right to give up her child at birth and the following 30 days after – NO QUESTIONS asked . Safe haven law .

  • bj

    Not a huge fan of Sherri’s, she’s ok, but that sumbag of a husband of hers should not get a single penny from her. She has not biological ties to the child. If he wants the kid, then let him get a job, be a single dad with all the trimmings and struggle raising the kid, just like women all over the world do being single moms. He more than likely pressured Sherri into this situation anyway, knowing that he was going to dump her and try to get child support for the kid. HE IS A CON ARTIS!!!!!!

    • skier

      Trash like her attracts trash like him. She would never get anything better than that.

  • Europa451

    Can’t Sally support his own child? Why does he need to get Shepherd involved? It’s obvious he’s a free loading leech. Sheri should not have to pay.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    her abandoning her rights to the child doesn’t necessarily mean she doesn’t care about it. I think she feels its being used as a weapon against her, and in some ways the kid would be better off if it wasn’t caught between her and Lamar(which Lamar wants to hold over Sherri). She’s trying to do the “smart” thing and cut all of that loose. She also feels that the adoption process/surrogacy process isn’t complete, and since she isn’t the kids mother yet, then backing out now can’t hurt the child. The kid won’t know or miss her.

    Otherwise, my first reaction was like many of you. I think its hard to judge situations like this.

    • Amber

      It does hurt the child when it doesn’t have anyone to love it. The surrogate mother, although biological, obviously had no plans to keep the child if she agreed to being a *surrogate*… and if the story is true, and the father is using this child as a weapon, then what does that say about him being a father?

      She needs to step up, be a woman, and look after the child she so desperately wanted. She brought this baby into the world through her contract and her money, she needs to do what’s right by it now.

      • Ugonna Wosu

        he may be (maybe) a using jerk, but we have no idea what kind of father Lamar will be.

        I think the only reason Sherri wanted this baby was because she thought Lamar wanted one. I think she feels she has enough with Jeffrey, and from things that she’s said, she seems to feel that at her age she doesn’t want to deal with another baby.

        Furthermore, since Lamar was apparently using her, I can see why she wouldn’t feel obligated to this child, which by all means isn’t really hers. That may sound cruel to you, but she has every right to look at it that way. The worst thing that can be done now is to force her to mother a child that she doesn’t want. That will really make the child miserable, if not neglected or even abused in some way.

        Lamar wanted a kid, now he’s got one. Just probably without the money he wanted.

      • Ugonna Wosu

        all that being said, we have yet to hear from a credible source. Lets all of us hold back our judgements in the meantime, lol.

  • http://att.net/ patty

    So now the big mouthed BLOW HARD. GOOD CHRISTIAN LADY (?) SHERRIE SHEPHARD
    IS REFUSING TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SURROGATE BABY. I got so sick and tired of listening the her brag, ooze over her Sal and how wonderful he was with her son Jeffrey. NOW SHE HAS THE AUDACITY TO ACCUSED THE SURROGATE CHILD WAS A SET UP BY LAMAR SALLY SO HE COULD MAKE UP FROM CHILD SUPPORT?? She admitted on national television The View that he wanted to have another child. Your whole story SMELLS BIG TIME SHERRI SHEPHARD. Says she doesn’t want to be taken for a FOOL? She always has proven on The View she is a fool! CAN’T FIX STUPID!!

  • HoodooTexas

    The courts will sort it out so stop all this emo angst. Child Support is a big deal now with government agencies so they will figure out the law and no amount of money opposing them is going to deter them from getting child support from someone who has money and is legally obligated. That is one of the good things that government has done in the past thirty years.. States do it, but the Feds help them.

  • abob

    Who’s the fat girl?

  • Ron

    Welcome Sherri to every man’s nightmare.

  • Andy Denver

    no connection to the child? what a stupid comment, without her contract and money there would be no child. She should continue to pay all contractually agreed amounts.

    • Rosemary Davis

      Yep because Lamar was not working she used her money to do this now she want to cry wolf saying she was deceived, in this day and time the use of a surrogate is at least a hundred thousand dollars or more.

  • queen

    Whether he schemed or not, Sheri should fight for full custody of this child. Denying a baby because you dont lie the other parent…makes you…well, like many deadbeat men running around this country. Sheri’s prenup states she gets custody of the child. Isnt this why she is asking the prenup be upheld? This child should not suffer because the father is a dirtbag.

    • WeWa

      Did you read the article? She doesn’t want it.

      • Simba711

        But she wanted it before they broke up.

      • queen

        So no mother should he upset if the father of their chold doesnt pay support for a child he doesnt want.

        • anonymouse

          If it’s not his biologically, then no.

  • DoinMe

    That’s messed up. If Sherri had anything to do with this child being conceived, I don’t see how she can simply back out of it. This is a baby, not a handbag she can take back to the store because she decided it costs too much now.

    • Rosemary Davis

      Lol!!!! TRUE

  • KeepingItReal

    Sherri….it’s no longer up to you. It’s up to the courts. Sorry:)

    • Rosemary Davis

      So true the judge will decide this whole mess what an embarrassment!!!! maybe this is why the View decided not to re-new her contract

  • Jena

    Thank God that Sherri wont be involved in this childs life ! No child should be sentenced to spend time with that hot mess piece of human garbage.

    • Rosemary Davis

      She may not be involved but chances are she will have some guilt knowing that she agreed to bring an innocent child into this world and than not be responible

  • Fordf250

    I think under any court jurisdiction she will have to pay support for the child. She entered into a legally binding surrogacy agreement with her husband. The surrogate is holding up her end of the deal. Sherri will be bound to hold up hers. If they separated after the baby was born she would already be paying. The surrogate would be able to sue her for breach if she doesn’t. She was so desperate to get married that she settled. This is what happens

    • queen

      The above article says that the state of NJ (where Sheri resides and filed for divorced) doesnt recognize surrogacy deals. Whatever that means?!? This will be a sticky situation. No wonder her husband filed for divorce in Cali. He is up to somehing..
      Also her prenup stipulates that she gets custody. I think NJ is very serious about upholding prenups. So why does Sheri feel as if she will have to pay support if she gets custody?

  • pow

    It’s not right of her but I understand. This man is trying to use this child, his.flesh and blood to get child support from a woman who is not blood related to this unborn child. This is the lowest of lowest. She, feeling duped and probably hatred toward this low life man, probably does not want anything to with this child who is only related to him and would probably look like his low life father. Marriage is compromising for your family, when you do and it comes back to bite you in the behind unfortunately bitterness and remorse settles in; and you start thinking of the things you did for the family/your partner that you didn’t necessarily want to do.

  • Guest

    People opt out of adoptions all the time.

    • KIR12

      This is more like opting out after 8 months of being pregnant. To late now. Bwhahaha

      • gia

        many people decide to give their baby for adoption when they are 8 months pregnant

        • Amber

          But this isn’t adoption. She hand picked this woman to carry the baby, it was planned before the woman even became pregnant. It is totally unfair of the child and the surrogate, to either dump the baby on the surrogate, or throw it in the foster system.

          • Rosemary Davis

            It want be thrown in to a foster home Lamar Sally was interviewed yesterday and he’s looking forward to raising his son with or without Sherri

  • CAliQueen

    If this is true I will lose even more respect for Sherri than I’ve already have. This child didn’t ask to come into this world Sherri and her husband made that decision for the him/her and now that she’s getting a divorce she wants to abandon the child. That’s the cowardly way out of her responsibilities. No different than a dead beat dad/mom. I hope this isn’t true.

  • Kitten Roulaine

    Good for her! Had the scenario been flipped, and it was her egg and not his specimen, he would have done the exact same thing. I applaud Sherri for finally using her noggin.

    Sherri, may not be the brightest, but she is being attacked unfairly by this man and suddenly her first husband, this is no time for her to think with her heart or emotions; It’s time for her to fight with the same vehemence as the two of them and WIN.

    Cry later Sherri, get tunnel vision, keep your eye on the prize ( your emotional and financial freedom) let that unemployed, selfish, sluggard go with HIS kid.

    • cuda1179

      Had this scenario been flipped (and it has thousands of times) the man is still on the hook for child support. In many states if a woman gets pregnant while legally married her husband is on the hook for child support, regardless of who the biological father is.

      • anonymouse

        That’s working under the assumption of the biological parent. There’s no assumption here………she’s not biologically tied to this child and everyone involved already knew this.

        • Dr. Dubya

          Nope. Even if he shows through DNA he is not the father.

          • anonymouse

            I don’t agree with that either but kris humphries didn’t have to go through that. I suppose it’s different if the other man wants to be the father.

            But my point was that is because it’s always assumed that the husband is the father and that’s not the issue here.

            • Dr. Dubya

              At what point can she not leave and not pay child support? Or can she always leave because the baby isn’t biologically her’s?

              • anonymouse

                From the way that I understand it,since she is not the bio mom and her husband is the bio dad, she would have to adopt the child to become the legal parent. Nobody can force her to adopt the child, so she can’t be sued for child support.

  • starapple

    Both Sherry and her husband signed a surrogacy agreement; it is their child. She was the one who boldly announced that she and her husband had found a surrogate to carry their child. Now that the marriage is over, she doesn’t just get to walk away from the child.

    • Shemara123

      I agree to that. Sherry is legally that baby’s mother. Okay Sherry that child is worth more than that. Do the right thing. Suppose he was born before you and your husband broke up would you still fill the same way? You are better than this. This baby didn’t ask for this.

    • Layla13

      Agree AND she tried to pretend it was hers biologically although some of us were not buying…

  • Guests!!

    I think this guy schemed this from the beginning. He figured he couldn’t get more money through alimony because of the prenup, so he would get it through child support. I really do feel sorry for her. She probably agreed to this for the family she thought they were building. He really is a poor excuse for a man.

    • Britney Robinson

      I agree. I feel sorry for the baby. Wonder what will happen to it?

      • Kitten Roulaine

        The baby has two biologically bound parents, Lamar the unemployed sluggard, and the surrogate who is the baby’s biological mother. One or both parents should obtain immediate employment and do what parents do, work, and provide for their child.
        As gullible and head over heels Sherri was with this man, I question did he know this surrogate prior to marrying Sherri, and if they have an intimate history together.
        He found and chose this surrogate, and why use another woman’s egg, that child will have the genetic makeup and characteristics of those two alone, not Sherri ( heck it is potentially a complete stranger to Sherri ).

        • juicyco

          so now the surrogate has to be the mother? she agreed to provide an egg and carry the child for THEM thats messed up this poor child is motherless because the person who agreed to be their mother doesn’t want to risk paying child support

          • Kitten Roulaine

            Yes. The only part the surrogate did not get from Lamar was the “thrill” ( and that may come to the light ). No reasonable man who want’s a child with his wife ( without a fraudulent purpose ) is going to pick a surrogate, use the surrogates egg and say that’s “our” baby to his wife.
            If there was no fraudulent intent on his part, they would have been better off adopting a newborn unloved little baby, who would then be received with the equal balance of love.
            This man also bamboozled Sherri into making one of his former tryst into her bridesmaid ( Sherri did not know until after the marriage ) that is beyond low.
            Men do not willingly support another man’s child, neither do women. They can break even if that’s the case, Lamar should get a job and pay child support for little Jeffrey, Sherri’s son by her first husband, same difference.

              “No reasonable man who want’s a child with his wife ( without a fraudulent purpose ) is going to pick a surrogate, use the surrogates egg and say that’s “our” baby to his wife.”

              A man is unreasonable if his wife is barren but they want children?? That’s asinine.

              • Kitten Roulaine

                In your mind it’s asinine, clearly not mine. I’ve read plenty of your comments on other articles before, specifically in reference to the unfair treatment of children, and you typically rally to the side of the abuser; and I have yet to refer to your sordid thought pattern as asinine.
                When you can’t respond without being insolent, it help’s me to understand why you have little to no empathy for defenseless children.
                Sherri has given birth, she is not barren; she may not have many viable eggs left due to her age, but barren she is not. Unless she wished Jeffrey into existence he came from her egg, and women who are not barren have more than one egg. Women who are barren have no eggs at all, ever. Sluggard Lamar, had a goal, and for him to accomplish his fraudulent goal it didn’t matter to him who’s egg it was.

        • Layla13

          It was not an issue before the marriage failed, she yapped on and on about this being their baby and just not being able to carry it, well, now that has been shown to be false. Most arrangements like this use a 3rd party egg that is NOT the surrogates but it is more expensive, her eggs were too old, period. Too bad it does not come out about more so called celebrities and their late life babies, I work in health care and we still get women coming in thinking they will have babies after 40 like and they start naming all the women, starting with Halle Berry, etc., a few succeed usually the ones with the deepest pockets, many more are devastated when they find out they are not going to be the next 40+ Mom of twins, etc.

        • ShellyKelly

          When I first read the story, in the back of my mind, I had the same question you had about the surrogate. But then I thought, the odds were against that deep of a scheme. It doesn’t seem probable. But, you said HE found and chose the surrogate. Hmmm.

    • Simba711

      You should feel sorry for the kid. She’s a poor excuse for a mother.

    • Xzamilio

      Yup… this is Madame Noire… where the woman can do no wrong, no matter how despicable she is being towards a child she first petitioned to get sole custody of and now doesn’t even want… it’s a baby, not a Gucci handbag

    • angeliese

      Remember when they got married it came out that one was the bridesmaids was a woman he had been smashing for YEARS. He set this whole thing up!

  • Gigi

    Wow…all kinds of mixed feelings on this one. I love Sherri, but she was expecting this child to be hers. How does get to the point where she doesn’t even want him anymore?

    • Kiki

      That’s my point in it I’m thinking it was your child when you was married and happy

    • rainydaze80

      It’s not like changing your mind after you buy a dress. I understand she might be doing this to thwart whatever plans she believes her estranged husband to have, but what about the kid? How do you go from planning a life with a new baby to deciding you don’t want to raise the kid anymore. Poor kid!

    • Alexis Morris

      i think its because that maternal bond isnt there

      • juicyco

        but it would be there if the marriage were to work? whose to say her ex will even get custody

        • Alexis Morris

          Im not taking for Sherry but apparently she must only care about the baby when it comes in handy to keep her man.

            Right now it seems as if Sherri is more concerned about her money she needs to talk to Halle Berry the courts in Cali is making her pay $16,000.00 a month in child support to her baby daddy

    • Simba711

      All she talked about on the show was having another baby. Now, her marriage went sour, she doesn’t want the baby. The baby she wanted so badly. Babies are not toys.

    • FromUR2UB

      She probably didn’t want the child in the first place. You how some women feel the need to have a child with a man, or in this case, for one?

  • hollyw

    WOW… like, just…wow. I ain’t know the baby in question was coming from a surrogate AND that surrogate’s egg! This whole disaster is ca-ray-zy!

    I don’t even know how I feel about this kind! I love Sherri and I hurt for her situation, but I’m trying to flip it to think about if this was a guy trying to dodge support, if it matters that the baby’s not biologically hers, how surrogate contracts are recognized in court and if she’ll still have to pay if she relinquishes her parental rights!

    Overall, though, obviously the one about to get the shortest end of the stick either way is this baby, and possibly the surrogate as well. Reminds me of an episode of E.R., I think, where the surrogate went into distress but still wanted to have the baby naturally and it ended up being brain – damaged… so both the parents just left the baby in the hospital… and obviously, the surrogate didn’t want him… this surrogate business is messy-messy! Never in my life!!!

    • ShellyKelly

      You’re right, the baby is getting the shortest end of the stick. This sounds like a Lifetime Movie in the making. I really hope they’re able to work this out. If I were Sherri, I think I would pursue full custody of the child. But, then again, this is such a messy situation, that I can’t really say what I would do. SMH.

      • hollyw

        That’s the oddest thing of it all, and why I don’t know how to feel about this and Sherri yet. If she’s only refusing to pay child support, I understand. Can’t trust the man. If she still wants and is going to love the child, even better. Heck, i even understand relinquishing your rights b/c you ultimately feel it will be emotionally damaging to emotionally attach to a child your ex will never let you mother. I mean, selfish, but understandable.

        However, if she is hoping to relinquish ALL rights and forget this whole thing ever happened, solely to save on child support or stick it to this man…I’d be inclined to be less of a fan, seriously. As much as this woman preaches God, I just… couldn’t.

    • 1Val

      I too love Sherri. But goodness gracious women have got to be more careful( please overlook black dialect). Seriously speaking, if Sherri had gotten pregnant by another man legally the baby would belong to her husband. It would be immaterial to the court if he wasn’t the biological father of his wife’s baby. Informal surrogacy existed in Bible i.e. Abraham and Sarah used Haggai as “surrogate” to beget Ishmael. It didn’t work then its not going to work now.

      • hollyw

        I agree with you, morally. Just in the situation you provided, however, that man would not be legally held to the subsequent baby. Also, I’d feel less sorry for the mother if her motives were just as seemingly shady, which is the driving motive behind all of this, I feel…

  • Lilly Jackson

    all involved knew the consequences, none are children, sickening situation….

    • Layla13

      It seems all the ADULTS in this thought about their needs and none of them thought about the child. I would not do this to a dog from the pound let alone a child.

  • Alexis Morris

    it’s not her child, but unless the surrogate was in on it too, she didnt expect that she would be stuck with the baby either. I feel for the baby to be so unwanted.

    • KIR12

      It is her child! This is a pre planned adoption that she authorized. There is a binding contract that says it. This is a heck of a lot more than all of these one night stand sp3rm donors.

      • Alexis Morris

        then she should take full custody of the baby.

        • Terri LaValle

          That would be the most unfair decision she could make. Face it. No other child would ever be able to measure up to her perfect precious Jeffrey who never does anything wrong. She would never love that baby in the same way. Unfortunate but true.

          • astroguy54

            She is a twistef mother.

          • hollyw

            That’s not true. Parents are completely capable of living adoptive children just as much as biological children. If she wouldn’t love this kid the same, it’s b/c of the battle between her and her soon-to-be ex-husband…h*ll, I know bio moms who resent their kids cuz they look like the baby’s father!

        • cuda1179

          I’d say she gets to share custody with the father.

    • Alisha21

      Biologically its not her child but legally it is. But I think she will get out of paying for child support.

      • Europa451

        I wouldn’t be so sure about that. Courts look anywhere they can to find someone to support a baby. There are men out there who are with a woman for literally months and when it’s over, they get stuck for child support.

        • Xzamilio

          Exactly… the court looks at the child’s interest, not the parent, so a man that is tricked into having a baby (poked hole in condom, deceived into thinking the child is his, etc.) can be stuck with CS payments in certain states.

        • hollyw

          Yeeeah but in the instances of not being a biological parent, the courts can usually only force a parent to pay up if they had already been supporting the kid after a time, anyway. At this point, Sherri has no ties other than a contract, which may not weigh anything in family court, on top of Jersey not even recognizing surrogacy at all! *sigh* for modern science…

      • Rosemary Davis

        Not in California Lamar filed his papers with the courts in Los Angeles they rule their cases differently than the courts in New Jersey and the reason he did this is because Los Angeles is legally his home not New Jersey and will likely get a more favorable out come

        • LK312

          NJ doesn’t recognize surrogacy contracts, whereas California does. Given that they probably have residences in both states and the contract was probably done in CA (since it would not be legal in NJ), the courts will likely use this fact to determine that their primary residence is in California. So, Sherri is probably out of luck in terms of child support.

          • Rosemary Davis

            Lamar and Sherri both lived in Los Angeles before she got her job with the View, and then she moved to New York and after the wedding he moved there too.Which is why I said he was smart to file his papers in Los Angeles because, he knew that more or less he would get a favorable hearing but since she doesn’t have a regular job now other than stand up comedy and motivational speeches I don’t know what the courts would award him in terms of child support if any, and as for Sherri this will not be easy for her either she willingly, signed this legal contract/agreement and most are binding so most likely she will be held accountable for this child wheather she wants it or not unless fraud is determine on Lamar’s part.

    • Mama Mia

      Stuck with the baby? Sheesh. Poor child.

      • Alexis Morris

        I would feel stuck if I was the surrogate, she didnt go into this thinking she would be keeping a baby, not saying that’s gonna happen in this situation exactly

        • hollyw

          Ikr. You know how selfless you have to be to be a surrogate? Let alone one who gave their OWN egg. I’m sure she thought it was going to a good home… Now if she gives it up, she gotta think about it going into the system…ugh.

  • Alisha21

    She should not have to pay for nothing!

    • KIR12

      If she shouldn’t have to pay, then none of these black baby mamas hood sp3rm donors should have to pay either. Sheri planned, authorized and gave more consent for this child’s conception than those sp3rm donors ever did.

      • Alisha21

        I personally think that is a loaded statement. I believe some men and women should pay the child support but each case is different. However, to prevent this garbage from happening black people should procreate with men and women with standards, don’t have three millions kids or so and be able to independently provide the their children if the other spouse has proven not to be up to par.

      • bippitybop

        Why so mad, hon? Was your father just a sp3rm donor? You’ll be ok.

        • Faith Durrer

          She’s mad because countless children suffer, and suffer badly, as a result of the procreation behavior of adults. The color of the skin is meaningless. The idea that creating a child has no consequences, is some kind of joke, or is required for passage into manhood is tragic.

      • Trisza

        KIR12–Maybe you should be more concerned about the number of children the white race rapes, molests, bombs and shoot during school shootings and let Black folk worry about their on or does the fact that 67% of child molesters are white men who only make up 32% of the US population. I wonder if they stay married so they have easy access to their own children? Worry about that. Comment on the site where the white father deliberately left his 2 year old in his van to bake to death while he was texting pictures of his pen!$ to a 16 year-old. Where’s your moral outrage about THAT? You are just another trolling bigot who’d rather insult another race, rather than acknowledging the race of pedophiles, school shooters, serial killers and family annihilators that spawned you.

      You people are beyond stupid. lol She agreed, planned and hired a surrogate! That’s more involved and authorization than all of these one night stand black baby mamas got from their sp3rm donors and more than their sp3rm donor ever gave or would ever voluntarily consent to!

      What she did is a pre planned adoption. The child would not exist without Sherri agreeing to the surrogacy. I’m sure she signed a contract.

          The illegitimacy stats speak for themselves. Black men aren’t having anymore nor less UNPROTECTED s3x than white men and men of other races, fact.

          Honestly, it tells me those black men choose the wrong race of woman OR educational level (black women with degree have much lower illegitimacy rate) to have casual, uncommitted s3x with.

          • Alexis Morris

            Im sorry but what do white women do? a lot of my white female acquaintances got pregnant in college and got multiple abortions or gave the babies away. I don’t understand why a black women’s site is even relevant to you.

            • KIR12

              Check black women abortion stats and then get back to me. lol You all abort as many or more black kids than you birth. Include the black illegitimacy rates with that and it’s clear what’s going on. Also, Sherri admitted to having 5 or 6 abortions.

              Condoms have never worked for any race nor nation successfully as an effective long-term birth control option. It is virtually impossible for a YOUNG healthy woman to be sexually active and not get pregnant. When trust is built and emotions and feelings are involved condoms are not used or not used consistently. It’s just a fact of life.

                    • Hibernia86

                      But you can have knowledge of things you haven’t experienced. For example I know all eight planets in our solar system (sorry pluto) even though I’ve never left Earth. And a person could experience an earthquake and still give terrible advice on what to do in one. Thus experience does not automatically mean the person is right and lack of experience doesn’t automatically mean the person is wrong.

Whether your knowledge of solar system is factual you have no way of knowing its veracity. All you have to based your knowledge of solar system are someone else’s information.

                      You have never been on any other planet but earth so YOU can not attest or verify other planets actually exist. Just like you can have biases, prejudices and stereotype black women when you are not and never will be one. What experience and being assures is basis for actual opinion.

                      By that logic wouldn’t that mean that black women wouldn’t know what it is like to be a white man and thus wouldn’t be able to claim any knowledge about it or judgement of it? Yes, we all have experiences in life, but they are just ours. If we want to get a wider view of the world, we need to look at the world scientifically and use objective knowledge. So a black woman can’t claim to be right simply because she is a black woman. She needs to have objective proof of her claims.

                      Fine. She had a surrogate mother get pregnant and then tried to back out of the deal when the pregnancy was already underway. No one would ever accept that if she were a man. And you are trying to say that because she is a black woman no one else should judge her unless they are a black woman too? No, if she does something wrong, she has to be held responsible regardless of her race and gender.

                      Your posts suggests that you have experienced a death of humanity by being a bigot to an entire population of people.
                      You are in engaged in a spiritual war because you seek out black people who you claim to detest.

                    Lies. You clearly know nothing about the foster care system along with reproductive health. “Giving up for adoption” is STILL the system, one. So, still being paid for by your tax dollars. You just tried to find a better way of saying “abandon” to distinguish between black and white women lol. Nice, race baiter!

                    Secondly, black women are more likely to KEEP their children than abort. Third, even if each were giving their children up for adoption equally, that would not solve as much for blacks b/c black babies are less likely to be adopted out. Weeeird… If you’re going to troll, you could at least use real facts to skew instead of being lazy with half-azzed lies.

                    • Daniel Gomez

                      BLACK WOMEN ARE MORE LIKELY TO KEEP THEIR BABIES AS A SOURCE OF INCOME, AND I DO KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE !

                      You absolutely do not. I’m sorry, but no one cares more about a perspective (let alone a racist one) over statistics, and as you have indicated time and time again, you know none. This is why your viewpoint is not respected on here.

                      hollyw, I DON’T PAY TAXES ANY LONGER. IF I COULD CONTROL WHERE THEY WERE SPENT, I WOULD MOST ASSUREDLY NOT HAVE SUPPORTED ABORTION AS A WAY OUT OF A SITUATION I COULD HAVE CONTROLLED IN THE FIRST PLACE. YOU SOUND VERY GUILTY !

                I dont have any stats nor do I need them.But as a licensed nurse, I worked in a termination clinic on the weekend we performed 75 abortions and guess what Sherlock?? At least 50 were white. Sweety stop glorifying the white woman. They travel across to our state from Utah, Colorado to end their unwanted pregnancies. Oh yeah I had to give PCN injections for clap they has as well. Sometimes at the 6 week check up…they are pregnant again. So dont get it twisted

                • Ralph Spooner

                  Felisha, unfortunately, I think you are correct in that it is just as prevalent on all sides of the racial fence and is not limited to economic status of the families. Some of it is due to ignorance on both sides of the equation. The “pill” has proven to be the only truly effective form of birth control for a woman, but I think it puts too much emphasis and responsibility on the woman. Of course we know that the only perfect birth control is to not have sex period, like that is going to happen.

                  • hollyw

                    Agreed. And now, with some new legislation, while condoms remain free and easily available at the nearest clinic, bc pills are needed with prescription, I.e. insurance, money, and have just gotten that much harder to obtain.

                • Chocolater Reign

                  This is true … WHite chix are good and known for crossing state lines for their abortions because they are afraid of being seen or found out about in their own States.
                  I’m sure most all races of women have had an abortion or two, but if you ask me that may have been the better call for some.

                  AND as far as these stats … No one believes that shyd. These stats may have just been counted in the well known clinic that gets gvrmnt funding.
                  But as mentioned before white chix go to very small private practice offices for their procedure and they pay in CASH. Sweep that under the rug and go on about their business.

                “It is virtually impossible for a YOUNG healthy woman to be sexually active and not get pregnant without female contraceptives.” really?!

                that was dumb. please. condoms can be effective. i used condoms for 16 years as the sole form of contraception, except the 2 times when they broke or came off then i went and got the morning after pill. give me a break with that nonsense. the reasons condoms don’t work is because people don’t use them.

                      Here’s some free advice from me to you; “Anytime you forfeit your dignity attempting to take someone else’s dignity the price is too high.”
                      You most likely will be incapable of embracing this ideology.
                      For you are suffering from delusions that black people value your racist rants.
                      When we(black people) in fact aren’t giving any credence to anything bigots have to say about us and happily living our lives.
                      While you are consumed with race hatred foaming at the mouth yelling as loud as you can watching life go on around you.

                      BLACK PEOPLE COULD BE PROUDER OF THEMSELVES, IF THEY WOULD ONLY PUT FORTH THE EFFORT TO DO SO. THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE THERE, BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE DESIRE TO PURSUE THEM. THEY FINALLY HAVE THE DOOR OPENED TO THEM, BUT REFUSE TO ENTER. I DO BELIEVE WE DID THIS TO THEM INITIALLY AND CONTINUED TO PERPETUATE A SYSTEM OF SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. IT IS TIME TO CHALLENGE THEM TO DO WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING. GET TRAINING, AN EDUCATION, A JOB [ AFTERWARDS ], TAKING THEIR CHANCES WITH THE REST OF US. IN OTHER WORDS, STOP KILLING EACH OTHER, STOP LOOKING FOR THE EASY MONEY, AND GET A LIFE !

                  • Daniel Gomez

                    AND YOU ARE A WILLING PARTICIPANT. WHITE PEOPLE DID NOT STEAL IT FROM THE INDIANS, THEY TRIED TO COMMIT GENOCIDE FOR THE SAKE OF LAND, GOLD, SILVER, AND THEN OIL. KARMA MAY TAKE CENTURIES , BUT IT WILL HAPPEN. IF IT IS SO TERRIBLE IN AMERICA, ALL RACES ARE WELCOMED TO RETURN TO THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN, INCLUDING YOU.

                • rhoda

                  Danny boy, that will never happen because white people occupy the majority of the “hand out” rolls.

                    HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS? I SEE THAT YOU CAN AFFORD A COMPUTER! ! I GOT NEWS FOR YOU , IT WILL AND NEEDS TO HAPPEN, SOONER THAN LATER.

                    • rhoda

                      LOL, yes Danny, I can afford one and many other things. Yes, I use the computer to “FCT CHECK” before I post responses I like to be informed and give facts, not hype. You are correct, White people did in fact establish this free system, but it was only meant to benefit “Whites” and then along came these “other people” so NOW it is time to cut it off. I can agree with you in part. Some (White, Black, Brown…) are abusing the system. The system that was intended as a crutch not a lifestyle, which is what has happened.

            • PT

              The article was carried on news sites, thus very likely many like me read the article without specifically going to the main site, just the article. Are you implying that only specific groups are allowed to read the articles here?
              Just the fact that it is a “black women’s site” makes it racists, as opposed to being just a women’s site. I the belief that all people are equal, I try to avoid as many racist sites as possible.

              • Alexis Morris

                this is a black women’s site and it’s ridiculous that nearly every single article has numerous comments demeaning black women. if a person hates black women, this site is not relevant to them. why cant I read and discuss without constantly having to hear ‘black women are trash’, ‘no man wants a black woman’ yadda yadda yadda.

                • Daniel Gomez

                  THE MEN I KNOW JUST WANT “A WOMAN”, AND THEY HAVE NO PREFERANCE AS TO BLACK , WHITE, YELLOW, BROWN, OR RED !

                • PT

                  I don’t care if you hate black women or not, your choice. I explained why people read the article. No need to get your panties in a bunch. You might want to try and contact the editor and request they prevent public publication of their articles and make it subscription only. That might prevent people from reading if off Yahoo, and I don’t know what “racial” stereotype you would call them.

                • FromUR2UB

                  PT thinks that because it’s a site that is intended to accomodate the interests of black women, that makes it a racist site. Well, I wish the people who aren’t black women and/or hate black women would stay off it. It’s usually impossible to have an intelligent conversation with them about topics that have nothing to do with them in the first place. All of a sudden there’s a swarm of all these ignorant people whose only purpose is to antagonize rather than participate in some thoughtful discourse.

                  • Alexis Morris

                    It’s crazy how they see it as black people only or being unfair, but they don’t see any of the posts which people are being degrading to black women on a black women’s site. If this were a gay site or an Asian site and people were stereotyping them i would feel the same, why be around people you hate? But they aren’t saying it’s wrong to say black women have no morals or slceep aroun. That’s not “important “

                    • Alexis Morris

                      I meant sleep around

                    • FromUR2UB

                      Yeah, it’s kind of amusing that people who hate us are still so fascinated with us that they can’t resist peeking in on the site.

                  • Jenn M

                    I take offence to that.. Im a mixed heritage female and I look white, raised in the “hood” im certified, and ive been on this site for a long time and find that it interests and applies to me as much as it would you.. Why do you insist that only black females read these articles?

                    • hollyw

                      That wasn’t even what was said. Furthermore, your disclosure of your ethnic background literally added nothing to the point at hand. You’re biracial; good for you. Read on.

                    • Jenn M

                      It was what was said..no matter how u read it.. they said white people should not be on here. A few people said ot actually… so your response is actually irrelivant but thanks for reading

                    • sarasefree

                      i thought you wasn’t white?…..so why do u care if they say “white”

                    • Jenn M

                      why do I care? huh.. could be that im sick and tired of race being brought into things that clearly have nothing to do with the color of the skin. its pure hatred

                    • sarasefree

                      no disrespect but stop being delusional, a lot of us say “why are you bring race into it?” but that is the world we live in….it has been about race from the beginning and it will be till the end….the truth of the matter is the issue of race is already in the room before we even walk in….you maybe have never experienced it but let me tell you it is one of the worst encounters and feeling someone else could put you through.

                    • Jenn M

                      don’t assume what ive been through, As a mother of two black sons, I experience racism every day and I must tell you it comes from the black people in my area not the white people. What im saying is why is this story and the responses by some of the posters, saying that white people should not post on this story. This was on the main Yahoo website and the link led most here. I read a lot on madam noir whether its for black women or not.

                    • sarasefree

                      i wasn’t assuming anything and i don’t know you but i’m truly sorry what you and your family is going or have gone through.

                    • Jenn M

                      ty god bless

                    • Jenn M

                      no the truth of the matter that in the rest of the worlds eyes, we dotn have time to worry about being racist all the time, The real truth of the matter is that whenever something happens to some , not all black people.. because I know a whole lot of em that wouldn’t dare do this, but some say oh its because im black.. like get real.. so u didn’t get the job because your black, well then why didn’t I get the job either.. see what im saying, that happens everyday.. Look at Ferguson, Mike Brown was murdered because he was black,, oh the racist white cop.. bull crap.. now 2 weeks later and facts are coming out and we see that He wasn’t murdered he was killed after basically permanently disabling the cop.. sad..

                    • Jenn M

                      well because its a racist thing to say and if I am going to stand up for people who are black im going to do it for people who are why too.. why does it matter to you why I question something, the original statement was full of hate and is part of the problem..

                    • hollyw

                      Don’t thank me; I skimmed it. Your self-victimization seems to be the only thing relevant to you and your white counterparts, which has clearly overrun your reading comprehension skills. Fyi, I believe you meant to say, “…your response is actually inaccurate”, not “irrel[e]vant…smh lol. Just the fact that you didn’t quote where FromUR2UB actually said “white people should not be on here”/”only black females [should] read these articles” is a strong indicator you’re full of sh*t. Good luck fighting “the good fight”, Jenn M!

                    • Jenn M

                      no its irrelevant like I said, I have no self victimization, because unlike many people on this page, my color doesn’t matter to me.. I don’t use it to advance and surely do not use it to separate myself into some unseen clique. And you quoted the exact same thing I was replying too.. and this isn’t just for black people simply because the 2 characters are black.. after all shes on a nationally televised show of which their audience is made up primarily of white people.. So you go fight the good fight, and start by teaching those you talk to to not be prejudiced..

                    • Jenn M

                      no meant Irrelevant, and that’s what I put.. ur opinion or comment means nothing to me,, I know what was said.. You don’t even know what your writing me for.. get out of hear, ur not gonna bother me with your irrelevant 2 cents

                    • Jenn M

                      it is what was said, they said and I quote”well, I wish the people who aren’t black women and or hate black women would stay off it..” that’s what was said, no matter how you spin what ur2ub said, its there in black and white..

                    • Jenn M

                      I didn’t disclose it for you or your personal gain. You sure have a lot to say but still haven’t found a way to intelligently say it.. so u can keep leaving me posts but please start saying something with sustenance

                    • sarasefree

                      WHAT???? WHY!!!!! she was merely referring to the disrespectful people.

                    • Jenn M

                      no they are referring to white people, not the rude people of which fall into any color category..

                • hottlanta

                  That’s a lie and a misconception that no man wants a black woman. Even Storm Thurmond had a monster ball moment that was exposed when he died. There are plenty more just like them. I have had white men to approach me and I tell them “No Thank You” I don’t do pink.

                • Peter Rudy

                  Sad , these black folks this website is only for them .

                • Daniel Gomez

                  WHY ARE SO MANY BLACK MEN TURNING TO WHITE WOMEN AS PARTNERS ? I HAVE NOTICED THAT THEY ARE UNATTRACTIVE, OBESE WHITE WOMEN, BUT I DON’Y KNOW IF THAT IS A FACTOR IN THE SELECTION. THERE ARE SUCH RELATIONSHIPS IN MY PREDOMINANTLY WHITE FAMILY, BUT THEY ARE NOT VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIPS. THE CHILDREN PRODUCED IN SUCH MATCHES, SEEM TO BE CAUGHT IN THE “MIDDLE” OF HOW TO RAISE THEM. THIS TO ME IS VERY SAD !

              • hollyw

                You clearly don’t know the meaning of “racism”, so feel free to avoid this site, if you feel so inclined.

                • PT

                  Yadda yadda yadda. Seeing as how you are ignorant of the definition, you might want to go look it up. And not in the “hollyw” dictionary, a real dictionary.

                  • hollyw

                    Belligerence and stupidity. You’re clearly just here to troll and advocate the “Black pride is racism!” agenda. Why else would you have sought out this comment of all others, not even on the main topic..? Good luck with that lol!

                    • PT

                      Lies and excuses. You are totally proving that which you are denying. NOBODY ever said black pride is racism, except YOU. I don’t tolerate racism from anybody, including you. The entire story was about a racist lady, shepherd, refusing to take responsibility for her actions.

                      Yet, you obvioulsy feel exceptionally privileged to be able to do exactly what you are accusing others of. YOU sought to comment on a topic that is unrelated. What makes you so special that you get to cast judgement yet be above judgement in return?

                      Good luck with that LOL!

                    • hollyw

                      Ummm WHAT?! You just proved my point, omg lmbo! Wow, didn’t think it’d be that easy, errm, first off, there is nothing REMOTELY in this article to imply that Sherri is a racist, so either your reading comprehension is so sub-par that your eyes actually invent things, and/or you seek out supposedly race articles to spew your ignorance, OR you thought Sherri was racist beforehand and decided to come on here, anyway, with that same agenda!

                      Additionally, you stated HERE: “Just the fact that it is a “black women’s site” makes it racists, as opposed to being just a women’s site.” implying more dumb, wrong definitions of racism! Neither the fact that you find Sherri racist or this site racist b/c it, yes, caters to the interests of black women, are relevant to this article, making you the very definition of a TROLL.

                      Please learn better argument skills of your going to lie and troll like this lol. You’re an amateur; we’re used to much better on here. Fyi, even if I was a bigot, I’d highly doubt I or anyone else on here would feel themselves held up for judgment by your ignorant azz! Good day!

                    • Alexis Morris

                      I am dead. sherri shephard is a racist lady. wtf!?

                    • sarasefree

                      LOL….ikr…..and that’s the point, even when you’re not on shyt they on some shyt….it always comes to light tho.

                    • PT

                      ROFLMAO, is this the best you can do? Making up things that NOBODY has said? You are correct, nowhere does this article indicate shepherd’s is a racist. That does not exonerate her though. Would be like an article about Don Sterling where it doesn’t mention his mistress or her other boyfriends, thus Sterling is not racists, right? Yet to shepherd, I am calling her a racists by her own words in the past. Sorry, judging her by her own character or lack of. It is YOUR ignorance showing, again.

                      Yes, I did say that a site that bills itself as a black site is racist of itself. So which is it? Are you too good for other women, or the other way around? Why not just a women’s site, scared of additional input? In a country where all are suppose to be equal, why do we need to segregate? What if there was a white male site? Would anybody that is not a white male going there be a troll? According to you, YES.

                      Sorry, you are the one lacking the argument skills, as I’m sure you are use to much “different” levels on here, not better. Like that of 3rd graders, throwing tantrums instead of facts to support your side of the debate. You can not keep up with debate among adults let alone keep your own thoughts separate, being guilty of exactly what you accuse others of.

                      You lost the debate long ago, it is just fun watching you get riled. Then making statements along the lines of “I know you are, but what am I” or “I’m taking my ball and going home”. What you lack in the way of argument skills and facts, you more than make up for in the humor of your rants.

                    • hollyw

                      *exhales* There. You’ve been graced with a black woman’s presence again, thirsty troll. I just breathed on you :-)
                      That’s all for you here, though, didn’t even bother reading that ignorant, unnecessarily lengthy post lol. You’ll have to change your username up yet again and get your race-baiting, troll fix somewhere else now, bu-bye! Glad you enjoyed yourself!

                • FromUR2UB

                  Then go to a site where everyone thinks as you do.

                • hollyw

                  Uhh… there is no need for “proof”, as the only ones that seem hellbent on the fact that there’s a conspiracy to prove they own bigotry seem to be white people. They are the only ones who go seeking this “proof”.

              • FromUR2UB

                Won’t bother explaining it to you because I don’t think you have the capacity to understand. But, if you believe this is a racist site, then why aren’t you avoiding it?

                • PT

                  Won’t bother or you can’t? Did not think you had the capability to defend the site, but nice try to deflect.

                  While definitely a racisist site, now that the cat is out of the bag, I do plan to avoid it in the future. If more people avoid racists, the world would be a better place with less hatred.

                  Yet for now, I am having too much laughing at comments like yours trying to defend that which you can not and making up excuses for your shortfalls. While I shouldn’t be laughing at your nescience, you make it impossible not to.

                  • Alexis Morris

                • PT

                  By obviously YOURS and many other definitions, parenting sites should only be open to parents, sporting sites only open to fans of that sport. You and others are making that argument…what Bigot?

                      Ease up. Deep breaths.

                      I was not ‘refuting’ anything. I asked a question based on your logic. Go back up and read my comment again. The first sentence ended in a question mark. It means that’s a question.

                    • PT

                      I answered your question. Too bad you opt to play games instead of talking. Good luck. Have a nice day. :)

                      Thank you for the chuckle, always appreciated on a Monday. YOU could not refute. If your failure to refute is “dramatic” to you, so be it. No emotions,no clouds, just those pesky things you avoid, they are called “facts”. Avoiding facts, ignoring questions/statements, just talking without a thought – let me guess, you are a democrat/liberal.

                      Your comment on “Reality is folks can enjoy any skills without putting down others” is nonsensical.” Seeing as how your skills are adept at putting others down, is therapy ASAP what you plan for yourself?

              To be fair I’m a white male and this article was linked on my Yahoo page. I like Sherri S. but didn’t know I was on “a black women’s site” until I read your comment. I just came here for a Sherri article, but if my kind isn’t welcome then I’ll leave. (After I finish the Walter Dean Myers story if that’s okay with you.)

              • Alexis Morris

                I see alot of ppl are getting their feelings hurt due to the fact that they cannot read! MADAME NOIRE literallly means BLACK WOMAN, it’s not exclusionary, but, if people took the time to read, the OP apparently hates black women. So what is the point in coming on a black woman’s site?

                • InvisibleZombie

                  I know what it means, I’m pretty swift at etymology. And I wasn’t defending the rude statements made above. However that doesn’t justify the “(site not) relevant to you” remark. I would say the site is “primarily aimed toward” black women. I guess it just hit me wrong.

                  (Now’s the time for someone to say “Now you know how it feels!”) ;)

                  • hollyw

                    Nope. Not necessary. As long as you understand that the attitude of exclusion is directed towards bigots and mysogynists, i.e. trolls, nothing more to say :-) Other races, ethnicities, genders, religions, etc. welcome. Trolls, not so much.

                      Lmbo your racist comments are hilarious, btw! Fyi, I HAVE natural hair smh …and I don’t answer for all black people. Additionally, technically, the most popular brand is INDIAN hair, dummy lol. Troll, get the h**l out here!! Switching up usernames hahaa!

                • Joanne Terry

                  Because some of who are not black actually know who Sherri is, and we were interested in learning more, and didn’t pay any attention to the source. But I can believe this is a black-run site, based on the poor grammar.

                  • hollyw

                    …and I can tell you’re a bigot, not only by the obvious ignorant comment linking black people to poor grammar, but by your willful ignorance of what the person you just replied to just said. Why YOU came here is irrelevant. No one cares either way (though I’m sure your white privilege constantly tells you otherwise). “Why are you on here” was directed towards the OP (stands for Original Poster) who was making derogatory comments towards Black women, most of which wasn’t even relevant to the topic at hand, which is intentionally antagonistic on a black women’s site.

                    Now, however, as you just elicited the same kind of negative attention-seeking, you could apply that question to your own motives. Congratulations, you’re now also exposed as a bigot!

              • hollyw

                Uhhh… I’m pretty sure the person you’re responding to was referring to a particular commentor who was derogatory towards black women…ijs.

              • PT

                EXACTLY. Evidently black women feel they are the only ones privileged to read this site. Anybody but “their kind” is obviously not welcome by the comments and they think this is not racism. Sad bunch.

                • Alexis Morris

                  I really don’t know why it’s so incredibly hard for anyone to understand that my comments were directed towards a person that made numerous comments about how much they hate black women. If I were a homophobe I would not go on a gay site and talk about how much I hhoa gays. Reading is fundemental

                  • PT

                    Yes, what you are saying is understandable. The commenter was lured here by the story on site open to all races.

                    This is much ado about your being unhappy with a possible racist commenter about another racist, shepherd, the topic of the story. I say we let those two hammer it out.

              I agree. Both races have forgotten the importance of family. We need men and women of both races sticking together for a child. It takes both genders to have a baby, it takes both to raise one. There is always a deficit in a child’s life if one of his/her parents are missing. I know I was a single parent for 8+yrs. There wonderful black men who are wonderful fathers and there are wonderful white men who are wonderful fathers. We need to stop the basing of men and different races the future of the human race depends on!

            I would argue that black men are having exponentially more unprotected sex thatn their non-black male counterparts. We know that most black women exclusively date black men, and they have the highest rate of HIV infection. If those women are only sleeping with black men, then that would say that there is a lot of unprotected sex.

          • Daniel Gomez

          What’s racist about facts and contracts? I suppose she’s angry now that she’s no longer on the View and millions are no longer flowing into her bank account. Both of them are fools.

        • Tiera

          Regardless Sherri is in a binding contract!

        • Hibernia86

          If a woman gets pregnant and doesn’t want a child, she can have an abortion. The man isn’t given that choice under current law. So why are you criticizing him for “walking away from his responsibility” when we (or at least pro-choice people) would never say the same about a woman who had an abortion?

        • Daniel Gomez

          WHERE DID THE EXPRESSION COME FROM ” BABY’S DADDY “? MOST BLACK WOMEN WHO HAVE ILLEGITIMATE BABYS DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO THE FATHER IS.

      • hollyw

        Uhh… I’m sure with all that busy-ness trying to badmouth black women, you might’ve missed that it will ultimately come down to which state takes precedent of their divorce, as the article plainly stated that Jersey didn’t recognize surrogacy contracts…a quick fact check could confirm that.

        P.s. there is no such thing as a “pre-planned adoption”, either.
        P.p.s. even with adoptions, adoptive parents still have total right to give those kids up to the system and not be responsible for child support. Just so you know.

        • Alexis Morris

          To my understanding, the baby is legally the surrogates and the fathers upon birth and then the mother adopted the baby when it was born, and that’s why surrogacy agreements are so tricky but i could be wrong.

          • KIR12

            Is that only when it’s the surrogates eggs? Just because it’s the law doesn’t mean it’s morally right.

            • Debora

              Morals differ depending on the person. You can’t legislate morals.

          • hollyw

            Yeah, most states don’t hold the soon-to-be parents’ over the surrogate’s, and that’s regardless of if it’s her egg or not. Whoever births it has automatic full rights over that child until/unless they sign it over and relinquish their parental rights. Most surrogates do this…but a few do not. Hence, the trickiness.

            At the end of the day, regardless of state, it’s highly unlikely that Sherri will owe child support if she disowns this child. I think he was just banking on her already being emotionally attached.

        • KIR12

          I just don’t get how someone can be adamant about an uncommitted, uninvolved baby daddy sp3rm donor. Yet give this woman who planned, authorized and committed to having this child a pass. smh

          This is why I say you all want it both ways. Abort the kids you don’t want and blame the black man for the OTHER kids you keep. It’s called “No fault, accountability responsibility pregnancy”. Invented by Black Feminist.

          • hollyw

            One, I’m positive you just invented that phrase, not black feminism, feminism, or Womanism.

            No one is giving anybody a pass, secondly. The difference between our thought processes, KIR12, is that I have no agenda, so I can usually see both sides objectively. If this had been a husband who was infertile, and whose wife had agreed to be impregnated by a random man, only to quickly file for divorce and full custody almost AS SOON as she got pregnant?!? I’d tell that motha to hit the ground running, too! Normally, my sense of legality of the child’s welfare overruling that of the father, even if he was duped, takes precedence over that father’s. However, if a parent, male or female, had a chance to escape those legal chains, i.e. b/c he wasn’t biologically the dad and was seriously tricked into this situation, I’d root for them all the way. I’m sorry, but in these situations, the child will suffer somehow either way, in which case, the court has to choose the route with the least damage to all. I believe Lamar raising this child he wanted so much that he immediately asked for SOLE custody of before they were even born is that route.

        • jeffylube2

          Personally I think the surrogate ought to get paid and then put the child up for adoption because neither one of the parents(Sherri Shepard and Lamar Sally) deserve this child. It is being used as a pawn. Sherri Shepard cannot provide emotional support for the child she has, according to her ex-husband. He claims the child is being neglected because his mother is too wound up her own career.

      • ACTRIGHT

        I think that women are held to a higher standard on everything. I know men who stay five minutes away from their kids and don’t see or support them. what about those men who leave their already made families for some new P or just to be free. Now lets drag her through the mud because she is allegedly giving up a child that is not hers biologically to avoid a legal and financial battle with a man that seems to be using her and trying to take what he didn’t earn. I’m not gon do it!

      • angiem3

        KIR12… sadly, I have to agree with you, although I think it’s unfair that Sherry is now stuck in this situation. This is a tough one.

      • austinandjusin

        You know I agreed with you until you let out your inner racist.
        Sherry did plan to have this child. Just because the marriage is now over doesn’t mean that she did not agree to be a mother to this child. I actually feel sorry for the woman who is carrying the child.

        • sam66

          Why? your not sure if the so called surrogate and Sherri husband did not plan to use this baby too get her money.

          • austinandjusin

            Of course I’m not sure. But what I am sure of is that Sherri did plan to have this child. That’s why they had a contract.

      • yanni54

        So let her pay the surrogate a specific amount for the use of her uterus and do NOT pay that so called con of a man she thought loved HER THROUGH THICK AND THIN! He wants alimony from her, the first husband wants to try and get Jeffrey so she would have to pay him child support to him also. Now Sally wants child support from her to for a child that isn’t biologically hers, BUT IS HIS? Amazing how the entire monetary responsibility for everyone involved has fallen on her shoulders. The first and second husbands played her big time and somehow she is responsible for their existence? If they are not handicapped mentally or physically then they need to get job and take care of their kids!

      • sam66

        People walk away from Adoptions everyday and if she can prove fraud someone else is going to be paying

      • Daria Reid

        Sherri’s husband has ask for sole custody of the child, it’s crystal clear why he wanted the child in the first place $$$ As for the contract, read the article again, NJ doesn’t typically recognize surrogacy contracts. Clearly the husband only wants the child for the child support, Sherri doesn’t want the child at all and it’s doubtful the surrogate will want the child. What’s in the best interest of the child is to be placed up for adoption. Find the child a good home, stop your senseless bickering and go your separate ways; that’s how this should be resolved. As for the rest of your rant, you’re racist, no question about it.

      • Terry

        If she signed a contract and then did not honor it, that’s called breach of contract and she is liable for damages, mental stress, etc. She could be tied up in legal matters for years regardless if she what she says or does.

      • jkebeans

        You are beyond stupid. This is a lawyer move. Clearly Sally is trying to get a big paycheck from Sherry. If it is not even her egg than it is not her child until it is born and she takes receipt of it. Legally.

      • 1Val

      • rhoda

        WOW Kir12, really? Was it really necessary to go there? How about stating your opinion on this topic and staying ON topic. The topic is NOT about her race. It is about her not wanting to abide by the contract she entered into.

      • pipeslinga21

        @KIR12
        Did you not read the article? The state of New Jersey does NOT recognize surrogate contracts, so basically Sherri Shepard is off the hook because she does not have biological ties to the child.
        When they take this case to court the surrogate contract will not mean anything. The father will have to pay child support just like in the last case like this.
        It’s that simple. Her intentions were to care for the child but since the surrogate mother lied and turned the tables, then she has no desire to take care of the child. She does not want to be taken advantage of especially since she is legally OFF THE HOOK.
        The courts are not gonna care what her initial intentions were. Nor are they going to even take a look at that invalid contract. Case closed.

        • Ms_DH

          If you were a real lawyer, you would know there is no such thing as case closed. Sally filed in CA. If the case goes forward there, she has no chance in hell of getting away with not paying. I think she screwed up because it probably will go forward in CA, and now she will have a hard time arguing for custody if she changed her mind down the road.

          • pipeslinga21

            It does not matter where Lamar Sally filed. Period.
            If the contract was not made and notarized in Caliornia then there is absolutely no chance it will stand. Given the information the contract had to be made in Nebraska. But let’s just wait and see

      • STXDiva

        Why can’t HE support the child? All he wants is Sherri’s money.

      • Cadence Michaels.

        Yea, but parents back out of adoptions all of the time. Lamar filed for physical sole custody, well alright then. Give him HIS child and let him get a job and take care of it.

She wanted it and they decided together to bring this child into the world.
