Looks like it’s a win for the mother of Ludacris’ youngest child.

The 36-year-old rapper/actor has reportedly been ordered to pay $7,000-a-month to the mother of his baby daughter, after attempting to plead poverty to limit the amount of child support he would have to pay.

Fans were shocked earlier this year, when they learned that he fathered a daughter named Cai on December 9th, with a former girlfriend named Tamika Fuller.

She filed papers for financial support, asking for a monthly check of $15,000 to care for the newborn, but he challenged the claim, insisting he could not afford to pay that much.

According to MSN, last month, he requested a Georgia judge cap his child support liabilities to a maximum of $1,800 a month, blaming the stalled production of “Fast & Furious 7,” which has been on hold since the death of star Paul Walker in November, for affecting his finances.

TMZ later reported that Luda claimed to only have made $55,000 in 2013. The case returned to court on Wednesday, when a judge ruled against Ludacris, although he refused to grant the full amount demanded by Tamika (which was almost double).

Long story short, he temporarily award Fuller $7,000-a-month, which will be reviewed once all of the financial documents have been assessed.

Last month, Tamika wrote on Twitter:

It saddens me that it has come to this. I did not file on him. Nor would I ever try to attempt to extort my child’s fathers.
