We guess his reasons against paying up weren't good enough!
Ludacris was trying to get out of paying child support to baby momma Tamika Fuller, who is the guardian of his 4-month-old daughter Cai Bella.
Here's what the court documents said:
“Petitioner shall pay to Respondent’s counsel, Thirty Five Thousand Dollars ($35,000.00), in addition to any amounts previously awarded or paid, as an award of temporary attorney’s fees and expenses of litigation. Said amount shall be paid to Respondent’s counsel within 10 days of the date of this order.”
Adding insult to injury, Ludacris will also have to pay his baby momma's legal fees! Plus ANOTHER $2,000 for his motion have her found in contempt.
Here's what the document said:
“The Petitioner shall pay the Guardian ad Litem’s initial retainer of $7,500.00, to be replenished to the full amount when depleted to $1,500.00. The Guardian ad Litem shall be billed at a rate of $325.00 per hour. The retainer shall be paid directly to the Guardian ad Litem within 14 days of the entry of this order.”
We guess Ludacris found out the hard way that a child is a BIG responsibility! And he's got to pay his dues!
Hopefully the rapper will be able to get over this, and still find a way to spend time with his daughter.
Maybe he's not ready right now, but we hope it happens in the future!
