What Lamar Sally Plans To Do If Sherri Shepherd Refuses To Honor Their Surrogacy Contract…
Divorce proceedings can get downright ugly, but complex situations like the one Sherri Shepherd has found herself in seem to take these already complicated matters to an entirely new level of messy. Earlier this year, it was announced that the actress and comedienne was going through a divorce with her husband, Lamar Sally. Their marriage just so happened to implode around the same time that the former couple’s surrogate was entering the last stages of pregnancy with their son. As you may recall, Lamar is petitioning for custody of the child and is demanding hefty support payments from Shepherd. However, sources close to the former “View” host say that she’s refusing to pay support or even accept parental responsibility for the child because she feels bamboozled by Sally. But according to TMZ, he isn’t letting that happen without a fight.
If reports are correct, Lamar is planning to drag his estranged wife to court and force her to honor their surrogacy contract. Apparently, he’s already in the process of drafting up legal documents against her so that she has to sign the baby’s birth certificate. Shepherd, on the other hand, is reportedly seeking to have the surrogate contract thrown out on the grounds of fraud. She believes that Sally knew that he wanted out of their marriage and convinced her to agree to having a child via surrogate so that he could cash in on child support payments.
It’s unfortunate that an innocent child is caught in the middle of this mess.
