In a saga including surrogate births, custody battles, and baby shower gifts, Sherri Shepherd is now accusing estranged husband Lamar Sally of stealing $20K from her account before they separated.
TMZ reports that according to sources, Sherri was unaware of the missing money until she recently took a close look at her bank statement. The money could play key evidence in the couple’s custody war.
Shepherd has filed for divorce and is contesting a contract made with a surrogate stating that Sally’s intentions for her were completely money-motivated and she wants nothing to do with him or their newborn child (via surrogacy).
Sources claim that Sally is stating that Shepherd was fully aware that he withdrew the money from the account which covered trips he took to Pennsylvania to be with the surrogate who gave birth on August 5. He states he hasn’t heard from Sherri since the child was born.
This is not a good look for Sally if he is indeed a manipulative thief, but in my opinion it’s an even worse look for Shepherd who appears to be abandoning a child they both agree to bring into the world like an expired coupon. I really wish these two could come to an agreement to at least co-parent. Only time will tell how this plays out in court.
