“I Have Been Publicly Humiliated”: Ludacris Wants Child Support Case Sealed, Says It’s Ruining His Reputation
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Ludacris believes that the drama behind his child support issues with Tamika Fuller are having a negative impact on his reputation. He says that her request for $15,000 in child support and his admission that he can’t afford it has put him in a position of heavy public scrutiny, and has led people to believe that he doesn’t care for his infant daughter, Cai Bella.
“Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file in this case, every day since Jan. 1, 2014, I have been publically humiliated and called a deadbeat dad, who does not want to see or support his minor child. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
In court papers, Ludacris says that it’s Fuller who has not allowed him to see Cai, and that he started paying child support for her right after she was born, so it’s not like he’s not financially there for her. But he says that the public nature of his case has made it seem like he’s done nothing for Cai, and it also hasn’t painted Fuller in the best light. In fact, the stories are so harsh that he feels it could have a negative impact on the money he earns and the work he will get.
“The news articles misinterpret the documents in the court files and say very negative things. I would hate for out daughter to ever see the blogs that have nothing good to say about either of her parents.
In the event that an ex parte Order is not granted, and people are able to continue to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file, my name, reputation, character, goodwill and brand will continue to suffer irreversible harm and damage, which may eventually jeopardize my earning potential.”
