Stranger than Fiction: Millionaire Rapper Successfully Sues Baby’s Mother for Child Support

Hip-hop star and actor Ludacris has successfully sued for sole custody of his daughter as well as $2,000 per month in child support from the child’s mother. In what can charitably be described as a “head-scratcher,” the rapper, who has an estimated net worth of $25 million, won custody of his daughter and child support from Tamika Fuller earlier this month. Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, has argued that since the death of Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker, there has been a delay in the film release which has created a liquidity problem for the rapper.

The decision marks the end of a bitter dispute during which Fuller initially demanded $15,000 in child support and claimed he was an absentee father who initially wanted her to have an abortion. The judge threw out Fuller’s request and determined that she was in no position to take care of the child. The court records are sealed, so the public won’t be able to know the details of the financial arrangement determined by the judge. The entire story does create doubt about the skills of Fuller’s legal representation. Her request for child support was not only turned down but she now has to pay a millionaire child support?

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
