Ludacris’ custody battle with the mother of his four-month-old baby is going from bad to worse. The rapper has been ordered to pay $35,000 to Tamika Fuller, with whom he fathered a child last year, to pay for Fuller’s legal fees, RadarOnline.com reports. A judge also shot down Luda’s request to hold Fuller in contempt of court, instead siding with Fuller.
Matters between Luda and Fuller have been contentious from the start. The “Southern Hospitality” rapper fathered the child, named Cai Bella Bridges, while still in a relationship with model Eudoxie. He admitted to paternity of the baby girl in January, and then weeks later accused Fuller of plotting to extort him for money.
Cai is Luda’s second child; he has a 12-year-old daughter named Karma from a previous relationship.
