Padma Lakshmi On Recent Custody Ruling

Padma Lakshmi says she didn't lose anything in her custody battle.

While walking the red carpet at "The Blossom Ball," a fundraiser for women suffering from endometriosis (a disease that effects the uterus), the Top Chef host got VERY emotional about the legal battle over her 2-year-old daughter, Krishna, with computer mogul Adam Dell.

Padma teared up as she told reporters:

"I was told I had a very small chance of ever having a baby. EVER having one. [Krishna] just turned 2 years old and she's a beautiful, healthy, happy baby, and I didn't lose anything. There was nothing to lose — she's a delight and joy."

It's understandable that Padam would get a little emo by the thought of her daughter at the charity event. She acknowledges how lucky she is to have had a child at all, saying:

"I had a very small percentage of a chance of ever having a baby. What we're doing here tonight is actually helping the 10 million other women [who are affected with endometriosis] to have the possibility of the same joy that I have."

AW! We knew we loved her for a good reason!

She is beautiful, talented and incredibly humble. She must be a fantastic momma!

Padma Speaks Out On Custody Battle

Filed under: TV NewsBaby BlabberLegal Matters

padma-lakshmi-baby-drama1.jpg

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.

Baby Daddy Dramaz For Padma Lakshmi

Filed under: TV NewsBaby Blabber

padma-lakshmi-baby-drama.jpg

Poor kid! Thankfully, she’s to young to realize her parents are at WAR!

Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi is having some, oh let’s say, communication issues with her baby’s father, Adam Dell. This week, Adam upped his game and filed paperwork to get custody of their daughter, 11-month-old daughter, Krishna Thea Lakshmi. As it stands, he already gets 9 days a month with her, but that simply isn’t enough for him.

Sources explain that the couple was meant to settle on a new custody arrangement once Krishna turns a year old. However, negotiations fell apart and now Adam is playing hardball to get want he wants. He’s complained to the courts that Padma only gives him seven hours a week to spend with the baby, but Padma’s camp insists she has never denied him a day of visitation. There’s also some talk that this custody battle is all a ruse and that what Adam’s really after is a fresh start with Padma. He’s insistent that the pair should start a relationship, but Padma just isn’t having it. She’s told friends that she simply wants nothing to do with him, not even child support!

We’d take the hint, Adam. If you haven’t changed her mind by now, we don’t think you ever will. How about you just concentrate your efforts on raising a beautiful, healthy baby girl? She’s a girl we can guarantee will love you if you treat her right!

Adam Dell Trying To Get Back In Padma Lakshmi's Life!

Filed under: Baby BlabberLegal Matters

It's getting ugly!

Adam Dell recently revealed himself to be the father of Padma Lakshmi's newborn, Krishna, and now is actively trying to become a part of his daughter's life.

However, the Top Chef hostess if having NONE of it!

A source says:

"Her relationship with Dell was nothing more than an on-again, off-again fling. She moved on months ago. The only role he will have in her life going forward is as the biological father of her child. She wants nothing more to do with him. Adam … signed an agreement spelling out visitation and should live by it. Padma is."

Eek. Although we think it would be nice if both parents could actively be involved, if he signed away his rights to his child, it's not cool that he's trying to backtrack now.

What do U think?? Should Adam be a part of Krishna's life??

Padma Lakshmi's Babydaddy Ain't Messin' Around!

padmawenn2778778.jpg

We reported earlier that Padma Lakshmi finally revealed the name of her newborn's biological father, but insisted that they agreed he would have a limited role in her life.

Now it seems that the daddy, Adam Dell, is no longer happy with this arrangement and he is pulling out the big guns to fight. Adam has hired the best-of-the-best in lawyers, Bill Zabel, to represent him as he forges ahead with plans to have more visitation with his child.

Wonder how many phone calls his brother, billionaire computer wiz Michael Dell, had to make to get this to happen?!

But even with the legal champ in his corner, Adam may have a long fight ahead of him. Padma's people stand firm that the two had an "agreement" concerning his child that he can not go back on.

And so the war begins…

Padma Has Some Babydaddy Dramz!

Filed under: Baby Blabber

Wow!

We guess he WAS the biological father!

Padma Lakshmi recently gave birth to her daughter, Krishna, and now her babydaddy, Adam Dell, is having some issues with his limited role as a parent!

A source claims that Dell has attempted to get visitation rights, weekends, and vacations with Krishna, but "Padma wasn't being entirely accommodating."

A friend on Team Padma claims, however:

"An agreement was made with the biological father that was very fair. It's unfortunate if anything inappropriate is being said."

What do U think? Is Padma or Adam in the wrong here??
