Ludacris and his daughter’s mother, Tamika Fuller, aren’t getting any closer to resolving their child support and custody issues. As a matter of fact, things are now taking an interesting turn. In response to Fuller’s request for more child support, Ludacris is now seeking full custody and child support from Fuller.
In court documents, Ludacris says he’s a “fit and capable parent” and should get full physical custody. He has also asked the judge to force Fuller to pay him child support. If you recall, Ludacris previously stated that he was broke, due to the “Fast & Furious 7” being put on hold after Paul Walker’s death. The judge still set his child support at $7, 000 a month.
Is Ludacris requesting full custody out of spite? There’s nothing wrong with a father having full custody, but why request it after Fuller asked for an increase in child support?
Divorce attorney Shauntese Curry-Trye says Ludacris’ move is typical in cases like this. “Ludacris’ move is classic legal advice- if u don’t wanna pay then go for full custody. But most of the time people (Typically men) don’t understand what that entails so after they go thru my 12 Step Program on How to Win Custody- they are done! Financially and emotionally. It’s not easy and unless you can show that the mother is unfit or other extraordinary circumstances exist, it’s difficult (But not impossible) to win full custody”.
As this court case plays out, it’ll be interesting to see the judge’s decision.
Clutchettes, what do you think about Ludacris’ move to receive full custody & child support? Do you think it’s vindictive?
