Sherri Shepherd scored a huge victory in court when a judge shut down her ex-husband, Lamar Sally‘s request for a hefty child support increase for their son, born via a surrogate.
Lamar, who is already receiving $6,400 monthly for the 2-year-old, went back for a bigger piece of the pie once he learned Sherri’s income may have increased quite a bit since they initially began their child support battle.
Fortunately, for Sherri Shepherd, a judge ruled in her favor.
Read the statement from Sherri’s rep:
Just before the inauguration weekend, Shepherd had a huge victory in the California family court. Sally and his counsel were humiliated as the judge flat out denied his request and politely asked Sally to be seated in the audience, away from counsel table so he could properly dispose of the matter. The California judge agreed with Shepherd’s counsel Terry Levich Ross, Esq. and determined that by Sally’s own agreement in two separate legal judgments, New Jersey has exclusive and ongoing jurisdiction over this child support issue and all matters must be dealt with only in that state.
The actress had a little time on Tuesday, so she took to Twitter to get a few things off of her chest:
For the record… I always offered to financially care for my ex-husband’s son. What he was demanding was not fair & allowed him to not work
My ex-husband says he works part-time 20-30 hours a week. I work a min of 15-hours a day. I have always had to hustle to take care of mine
And then to find out in court papers that the first Ex-husband has been feeding the second ex info under the guise of seeing Jeffrey…
How many ex husbands does it take to get money from a single mom. Two. #dumb and #dumber #getalife #getajob
Sorry for all ex-husband tweets. I picked ‘em & accept consequences of bad choices …but never in my wildest dreams did I think they were
Never a problem helping ex financially w his son … just wanted a fair decision and not made to pay an amount borne from greed and deception
I rest my thumbs … time to put this mimosa down and log off twitter before ex hauls me back in court for making him look like a gold digger
I am done.
