Anthony Anderson Defends Ludacris Against Child Custody Critics: “We Don’t Know What The Real Story Is!”

April 8, 2015  |  

Earlier today, we published an essay by Tamika Fuller in which she discussed her troubling child custody dispute with rapper Ludacris. In an interesting turn of events, “black-ish” star Anthony Anderson took to Instagram to come to the rapper’s defense against fans who say that they’re disgusted with him after hearing Tamika’s side of the story.

According to Anderson, people should refrain from commenting on the situation because no one knows the full story. His comment in its entirety reads:

“Why should Luda be ashamed of himself?! Do you know how hard it is for a father/man to get custody of a child from the woman/mother? We don’t know what the real story is and it’s none of our business what that story is! But know this, the same courts that determine how much child support a father should pay regardless of the relationship or time he has spent with the ex-wife or ex-lover or where that child should live and what the visitation arrangements should be has awarded custody of their daughter to Ludacris for reasons we’ll never know nor should we know because it’s THEIR business!

For this act to happen speaks volumes about both parties involved. I wish nothing but the best for the child and an amicable parenting relationship between the parents. Far too many fathers are not present in their children’s lives especially their daughters. I commend Ludacris for stepping up and bucking the system and standing up for what he believes is the best for his daughter cause he could’ve easily given in and wrote a check.

None of you know who this woman is so you can’t make judgments or assumptions about her. You know the public persona of Ludacris but not the private man Chris Bridges. I pray for the best for all involved. The courts have spoken and they know far more than any of us!”

It’s pretty interesting that Anderson came seemingly out of left field to defend the Furious 7 actor. What are your thoughts on his comments?
