Yesterday morning, we reported the saddening news that Padma Lakshmi has found herself in a bitter custody battle with baby daddy Adam Dell. Adam reportedly filed for full custody this week throwing a huge wrench in their ongoing negotiations.

A rep for Padma has come forward with a statement from the Top Chef star in response to this latest development. The rep explains:

"Ms. Lakshmi believes that family matters should be kept private. She asks that those who join her in wanting the best for her daughter do the same. 24 hours after the New York Post was told about Adam Dell's lawsuit, neither Padma Lakshmi nor her lawyers has received a copy of it; they only learned of it through a statement Mr. Dell provided to the press. Ms. Lakshmi's sole interest lies in preserving the privacy and welfare of her daughter and in working out a fair and amicable agreement out of the media's glare."

Sorry, but it doesn't sound like that is going to be possible, not with your ex's big mouth.

We hope you two will find a way to settle this civilly though, for the baby's sake.

    Padma shouldn't be such an asshole. The father has rights, too. She basically has done whatever she wanted, from naming the child to giving him very limited rights. She's the one with the choices. He has no other alternative but to go to the courts.



  2. 2

    The baby's father has a right to equal custody and if she will not negotiate that outside of the courts, then he must go to court to gain his legal rights. If Padma didn't want to share a child w/a father, she should have gone w/in vitro with a sperm donor. Otherwise, this is the hard reality of co-parenting, they are both deserving of equal time with their daughter.

    This is going to be very damaging for the daughter. I doubt the father really cares about her and is just using these legal tactics to harass Padma. She should've used a sperm bank.

    That I even have to read about this golddigging whore makes my stomach turn.



  5. 5

  6. 6

    Hysterical that her obscene gold digging ways are finally kicking her in the a*s!!! Go Dell go!!

    he doesn't get to see his child and negotiations went kaput. Someone did that to me, keeping me from my kid, I'd yell at whomever would listen, including the press. You got boy…..get your kid.



  8. 8

    Oh please.. get over yourself Padma! that is what happens when you have a child.. The father has rights and should be able to fight for them..

    Adam Dell is an arrogant ass. His own family cannot stand him.
