This just got a bit more interesting. Color us surprised when we learned that Ludacris (born Christopher Bridges) announced was the father of a newborn. As we reported, the rapper/actor started a short fling with a long time friend Tamika Fuller earlier this year, when he was on break from longtime and current girlfriend Euxodie. The short-lived relationship, resulted in the pair welcoming daughter Cai Bella Bridges, on December 9, 2013.
Although his newborn has his last name, the 36-year-old has yet to officially claim his daughter’s paternity and he’s in the midst of protecting his assets from his new baby mother. Reportedly, the rapper has filed legal documents claiming he makes $25,842.41 a month and under Georgia law he would be obliged to pay $1,754.66 a month in child support. Folk are speculating that his new baby mama may go after him for all he’s worth, so he wants to set a limit on the amount of child support he will be scheduled to pay to the child’s mother. Well, in an interesting turn of events, it seems that Fuller gave him an ultimatum. According to TMZ, Fuller threatened to go public with the drama if he didn’t buy her car. Last September, Ludacris requested a judge issue a gag order against Tamika because of his celebrity status stating,
[He is] a major celebrity of great notoriety and throughout the U.S. — and even in Georgia — judges often allow public figures to keep their sexual indiscretions under wraps.
The gag [order] was essential because Tamika demanded that he give her a whip and $7,500 for her lawyer’s retainer.
The judge rejected his request and Fuller went public although we are unsure if she received a car. According to the LA Times, over the weekend, the Fast and Furious star sold his LA condo and bought a new $4.8 million home in the Hollywood Hills.
