Weeks following the shocking ruling in Ludacris’ custody case against the mother of his baby, Tamika Fuller is breaking her silence, and it’s eye-opening.
The rapper-actor, whose legal name is Chris Bridges, had been engaged in a nasty court battle with Tamika Fuller, regarding their 13-month-old daughter, Cai. In January, however, Judge Dorothy Downs brought an end to the drama with a shocking ruling.
“After a review of all the evidence, the testimony of the witnesses, the report of the guardian ad litem, and the claims made throughout this entire case, I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter,” Bridges, 37, told PEOPLE.
During the ongoing litigation, Fuller asked for an increase in Bridges’ child support payments from $1,700 to $15,000 a month and dropped a bomb when she claimed that Bridges initially tried to bribe her with a home and $10,000 to terminate the pregnancy, reported TMZ. The “Chicken and Beer” recording artist fought back, saying Fuller’s comments were damaging his reputation and underlining the reasons he would be a more fit guardian for Cai.
Fuller took it one step further, by alleging that the Furious 7 star’s marriage to his his longtime love, Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue, was a ploy to gain an upper hand over her in their custody battle. Coincidentally, a few weeks following, news broke that Ludacris and his wife were expecting which Fuller says blindsided her. Now, Fuller is telling her side of the story in an essay written for Madamnoire titled “Fighting For My Daughter: Power, Wealth, and Hip-Hop,” Following is an excerpt:
“He promised me the world – trips on his private jet and other perks of the rich and famous – if I would just have the abortion. He made me feel as if I was ruining us. It was as if he believed that our friendship should take precedence over the life growing inside of me and when he realized that it didn’t, it couldn’t, my real nightmare began.
