Unfortunately, it looks like Ludacris’ child support proceedings won’t be nearly as quiet as his new baby mama, Tamika Fuller‘s secret birth last month. Over the weekend we told you that things were already getting pretty ugly between Luda and Tamika on the child support tip because while Luda claims that he only makes $26,000 per month, which would only entitle Tamika to nearly $1,800 in child support, the new mom is calling BS, insisting that the “Splash Waterfalls” rapper makes wayyyy more than that.
In court documents recently recovered by TMZ, Luda is actually accusing Tamika of extortion, claiming that she threatened to go public with news of their new baby if he didn’t purchase a new car for her. In addition to the car, he says Tamika also requested $7,500 for her lawyer’s retainer fee. As a result, in September Luda requested that a judge issue a gag order on Tamika to keep her from talking because he’s “a major celebrity of great notoriety.” Lawyers on behalf of the Atlanta rapper argued that throughout the United States, judges often allow public figures to keep their sexual indiscretions private. This judge, however, wasn’t buying it and denied the gag order request. In other words, Tamika is free to sing like a canary if she so pleases.
The baby isn’t even a month old yet and things are already über messy! Something tells me that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing about Luda’s child support saga. So as always, we will keep you posted as this story develops.
