“I Listened To My Heart”: Eudoxie Reveals Why She Decided To Stay With Ludacris After He Had Baby With Another Woman
If you’ve ever wondered what goes into deciding whether or not to stay with a man who steps out on you (we here at MN don’t believe in “breaks”) and then conceives a child with another woman, Eudoxie Bridges decided to let people in on that.
Bridges is taking part in a new series with Essence x Coca-Cola called If Not For My Girls where she and good friends LeToya Luckett-Walker and Keri Hilson discuss what their friendship has helped them get through. Early on in the conversation, Hilson talked about how both women helped her see the importance in removing herself from unhealthy relationships where she found herself being taken advantage of.
“If not for my girls, I would be in relationships and places that no longer serve me,” she said. “If not for you two specifically, I would still have been in really toxic relationships. Both of you in your own ways have helped me have that birds-eye view of the reality because love can be blinding.”
And while Bridges said she wanted Hilson to see the beauty she possesses both externally and internally to know she deserved better, a commenter on social media asked why no one spoke up and encouraged her to see that in herself when Ludacris had a baby outside of their relationship.
The specific question was, “Nobody told Eudoxie to leave after Luda had the side baby? Serious question.”
Bridges decided to set the record straight.
“Many people did tell me that but I listened to my heart and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made!”
It was revealed in early 2014 that Ludacris fathered daughter Cai in 2013 after a child support lawsuit between he and the child’s mother, Tamika Fuller, was made public. The two would eventually do battle in court for custody of the child, with Ludacris, surprisingly, winning full custody in 2015. On December 26, 2014, the rapper and Bridges became engaged and married on the same day. They welcomed daughter Cadence in 2015.
