The rapper Ludacris is the second-most-famous celebrity this week to announce that he has a new baby that no one knew about. The rapper recently started court proceeding to come to financial terms with Tamika Fuller, who has the privilege of giving birth to his latest child.
But Tamika isn’t happy with the way the court battle has gone so far, after Luda made an obnoxious request of the judge. The rapper and his lawyers have asked that the courts cap out his child support payments to just $1,700 per month.
This may seem like a lot of money to the average person, but it’s not even chump change for someone of Luda’s caliber. Ludacris, whose real name is Chris Bridges, reportedly earned around $80 million dollars between 2006 and 2012. Over a seven year period, that’s about$11.5 million dollars per year, almost million dollars per month, or about $33,000 per day.
According to TMZ, Luda spends about $7,000 per month just to take care of his lawn. He also spends $5,000 taking care of his pets. So, in comparison to lawns and pets, a newborn baby must be at the bottom of the list.
Fuller, as expected, is disappointed that Chris would make a baby with her and then ask to pay less for his child than he does for his lawn, so she is demanding that he pay all of her attorney’s fees. She also wants a whole lot more than $1,700 per month.
For the record, Ludacris is still doing pretty well financially. According to the LA Times, he just bought a new house in LA for $4.08 million after owning two condos in the same building, each worth over $800,000.
What do you think? Is she being a gold digger and asking for money for her personal needs, or is she making a legitimate claim? If he were to take partial custody of his child, would $1,700 be enough to take care of the baby?
