Rapper Ludacris Can’t Pay $15,000 In Child Support

Rapper Ludacris Child supportBy Lechette Walker

Christopher Bridges, best known as the rapper/actor Ludacris, has been ordered to pay $7,000 a-month in child support. The child support was ordered for his daughter Cai Bella Bridges, who was born on December 9th by his former partner, Tamika Fuller.

The 36 year old, hip hop entrepreneur has another daughter named Karma who is now 13 years old, according to sources.

Fuller is asking for $15,000 a month in child support to take care of her 2-month daughter, only to be disappointed by Ludacris claim of having hard times.  On Wednesday, he requested for the Judge in Georgia to reduce his child support to the limit of $1800 a month. Ludacris reason for his current financial difficulties stem from the death of star Paul Walker in which caused the production of the “Fast &Furious” to be put on hold. The delay in the completion of the box office hit directly affected Ludacris financial status, according to sources.

Ludacris declared to the court that he only made $55,000 in 2013. The Judge ruled that Ludacris will have to pay half of the original requested child support (which is about $7,000) until his financial documents are reviewed.

According to Ludacris Twitter feed last year, he confirmed that he was one of “The World’s 20 Highest Paid Hip Hop Artist.”

“7 years in a row! RT @shrznn: @Ludacris id the Forbe’s 9th healthiest cash-cow in hip hop! #Respect #LudaNation,” twitter feed dated the 25th of September 2013.

The revealing rundown of his assumed earning is substantially more than he reported to the courts on Wednesday, it is reported that he made“$12 million just in the year of 2013,” according to WebProNews.

If the accounts of the twitter feed are true I guess the courts will surely adjust his payments to reflect his actual earnings.

    Zilla, I still like Luda. Shame on the mother for asking for $15K a month for a 2-month old. That’s gold-diggin’ to the FULLEST. $1800/month is more than adequate. She’s supposed to be working too, you know. They’re not married…

      Raising a child IS work, especially if she’s breast feeding like she should be. Besides, where is she going to find a job that pays more than the cost of a reliable baby sitter, and leave a few pennies over for food and rent? Not to mention that she’ll be paying a stranger to raise her child.

      Why is it so bad that a woman wants to raise and nurture her own child? Women have been doing this important work for a zillion years. “Get a job” is a new concept for women, only in the last 50 years of human history – and the children are suffering for it.

        Ever since there have been people, women have done work that was required to contribute to the survival and well-being of their group. This nonsense about women not working is a lifestyle promoted by the rich and the middle-class. Children are not ‘suffering’ because their mother’s might be working, but many children ARE suffering because they are unfortunate enough to have horrible fathers who do not support them financially or emotionally (sometimes even if they are in the home).

          Women need to stop getting pregnant by dudes that just all up in it for the pucci. These broads know when they’re f@cking these dudes arent feelin them as their future wives and mothers of their kids, but some women are just desperate for dyck and think men fall in love with pucci and they dont. Women need to stop acting like they cant use some dayum birth control and cant say no to dyck without a condom and wake up and get that a man thats just f@cking you doesnt care he just wants to nut up in a woman and he dont give a sheit about a baby he planted.

      To the Truth
      I understand how u feel. I would be willing to see that my child has the $ to be successful.
      this is HIS child!
      Why would u make a child w/ someone(the mother of ur child).
      it is his ultimate responsibility to take care of them both!!!
      Black men need to understand that having a child or doing time in in jail is NOT a passage to manhood.
      So tired ofcthis s@#t!

    Luda can raise his child with out her, and these bitches wonder why their children turn out to be shit. The trap they lay today for the father is the trap that gets their child tomorrow. Funny how things work. No woman should get a dime in child support if the father is willing to take the child in his household without her.

      Where does it say that she forced him to not wear a condom? Last I heard, men still had control over their d.i.c.k.s.

        Why didn’t she wear a FEMALE CONDOM?? They are out there, whats the problem. When a woman gets pregnant its her fault. She controls when she wants to keep a child, she can control when she doesnt want a baby, if he dont strap up and you still have sex its on you. If you not on birth control, pill, implant, iud, etc, its your fault. Women control theirs!!!

    its sad how women get children just to get free money get out and work like a real woman and take care of yourself and stop using these stars to get a baby so that they can take care of you they only want to use their kids so they can take care of their needs and the child still have to suffer but in the end who ends up getting hurt the child cause the parent havent taken care of the child like they should they are too busy trying to live the high life for themselves it kills me how they wanna sit up and charge these men so much of money I see why now alots of these men need to step up and take custody of these kids and make these so called wanna be real housewives pay them I bet they want be so quick to run to a judge or lawyer then when the shoe is on the other foot who will be saying something about that?

    If it’s his child, then he should pay. But $15000 is a bit much for a two month old. I’m beginning to see a pattern here: Be fabulous enough to land a wealthy celebrity, get pregnant and then force said celebrity to fund you so that you land up in a higher income bracket. There’s got to be a group out there who are making this a career choice. (LOL)

      Wanda, I have to agree. I call it celebrity welfare. She put herself at risk when she did not protect herself from his germs. How many people have Ludacris slept with before she slept with him. If anyone thinks this women is going to breastfed and really take care of this child in a loving way and not take care of herself, it would surprise me. Dad needs to pay the child care, clothing, education for the child`s future, and for activities that will help in the child`s development. Pay half the child support for 5 years and give a monthly amount that pays the child part of the bills. She needs to find a way to take care of herself, while he takes care of the child. I also expect Ludacris to take his child monthly and spend sometime with his daughter. Love her and make her feel special and she will act speacial. Perhaps, she will not follow in her mother`s footpath. Maybe some of these women need to take a page from Beyonce`s play book. “PUT A RING ON IT”

    It is truly amazing just how most of our opinions do not align themselves to the law – the law of man or of God. The law of man says something tantamount to what I heard a preacher say once: “You can make your choices but you cannot choose your consequences. And of course, Jesus said, “You reap what you sow”.

    Last time I heard, the law said that a child is entitled to enjoy the financial status and lifestyle of his or her parent(s) – one or both whichever has the higher. A common man with an ordinary job cannot expect to pay a $500 a month car payment along with insurance, gas, and maintenance and another $500 (a total of at least $1000 a month) and then anticipate that a court will allow him to pay child support of $300 a month – more for his car than for his own child! Does he think that a judge is going to validate how he values his car above his children?

    And let’s look at this as well. I Timothy 5:8 says that it is wrong for a man not to take care of his own. If he doesn’t he’s like an infidel. His mind and heart have been captured by the devil who wants him to focus on self-gratification and nothing else. When a man brings other I’s (and eyes) into the world, he must make provisions for all of them to feed, along with himself, from the same trough! Hence, if he enjoys “fine dining and extravagant living”, then so should his children.

    But the most important thing that we must remember is that our bad choices have consequences. A good choice is one of which God approves. Adultery, fornication, and “shacking” are not good and godly choices. And when we make the decision to plant the seed of sin, some kind of harvest is coming in due season. The same applies to planting good and godly seed; we will receive a good harvest in due season as well.

    Ludacris is only reaping what he sowed. And those who don’t like what is happening to him should take heed lest you come to the same fate.

      I wasn’t always there for my children due to certain situations and circumstances. But given different circumstances and being more than able to take care of my children, it would be an “honor and a privilege” to do so. Trust me, those kids may still love you but believe me they won’t forget your being or not being there. So if you are able financially to take care of your children ( ladies and gentlemen), then by “all means” do so.

        February 23, 2014 at 7:28 pm

        No man has ANY business laying down to make babies with anyone if he cannot or will not take care of his offspring, should any come along. I can just imagine what kind of “situations and circumstances” kept you, and all other men like you from being there for your children, and those S & C’s amount to a bunch of total BS. Some men simply have no self-control and no desire to DO THE JOB that men are supposed to do. You’ll be lucky if your children even acknowledge you as their father. I certainly wouldn’t.

    For everyone saying it doesn’t cost $15,000 amonth to raise a 2 month old….that doesn’t matter. You pay support according to your earnings. Ludacris DID NOT MAKE $55,000 in 2013. He is paid about $25,000 a concert and he played 50 shows. You do the math. He doesn’t have a problem paying $150,000 a year for his 13 year old daughter. How could he have paid that amount last year if he only made $55,000. I like his music and his movies but he should be charged with perjury for submitting those lies to the court. I bet he didn’t submit his USE 1040.Shame on you for denying your daughter. He just doesn’t want the baby’s mother to get a dime from her. He’s to smart to have sex without a $5.00 Condom. It would of savethim millions.

      Tell them young cats that that good, natural feeling is going to cost them thousands every month for eighteen or more years!

      Yes, “If you are going to do wrong, then do wrong right!” Use a $100 condom if you can afford that kind of protection. At least the sinful and ungodly seed that you sow probably won’t produce another person who may hate you thirty years later, because neither you nor your money was there.

    Are you kidding me? The courts should base child support on the average for a child in that particular age group to include education. Mommie is not entitled to any extras, sorry! That what work is for. Take care of your children ONLY!!!

    • J. D. Hill

      February 23, 2014 at 3:27 pm

      Cliff, as I’ve said before and will continue to say until some of you younger guys “get it”. You have to align your thinking and opinions, optimally, to what the law and the Lord say.

      I won’t argue with you. I’ll just ask you to verify or refute what I’m saying by asking someone who works in family court to tell you or point you to the law. It ain’t what you think it ought to be! And it is what it is whether you like it or not! Child support can be onerous! The law does not give a da’em about what your bills are or how you want to live. All they care about is keeping your kid from feeding at the public trough and completely out of the taxpayers pockets!

      Can you imagine a young doctor who romances a pretty young receptionist for about six months when she tells him that she’s pregnant? She already has two other kids, both on welfare and both of their fathers are in prison. All the young doctor knows is that he’s got a good thing going after a long days work. Meets her at a bar and goes on to pleasure himself inexplicably. Of course, she doesn’t believe in abortions and has his baby who is confirmed by a blood test. His child support is enough to support his own child, inadvertently reimburse the county for those other two, and give her enough extra to afford a nice big apartment and a new car to boot. All for that NATURAL feeling!

      Most men do not count the costs of their sxual behavior BEFORE they engage in it. Plus, it is foolish to put the burden of birth control and your future in the hands of a woman you would not die for. Jesse Jackson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Edwards and many others wish that they had not allowed themselves to be sucked in to sin. Not one of them was proud to be fathers of innocent children of adulterous parents. But all of these men are wealthy: none were hauled off to child support court, because they agreed to pay enough to keep things from being taken that far. Ordinary guys go to the cleaners!

      Don’t believe me! Check it out for yourself. The child support system and network is already set up nationwide!

    He made 12 million in 2013 alone, and he can’t afford to give his child $180,000 per/year, what’s wrong with this picture? If Ludacris did not want the responsibility of raising a child, he should have worn a raincoat! Since he did not, pay up punk!

      It takes a real man to “man up” and take care of his own children, whether he loves their mother(s) or not. For a male to look the other way and push his children off on others to support [the state included], he is really showing that he has a demonic spirit.

      A real man will see to it that his children have food, shelter, and adequate clothing before he does. He cannot bear the thought of his children going without. He will work three jobs if he has to. He will keep his kids while their mother vacations with her boyfriend. He will make room for them in his home. And he will let any woman know that he comes in a package with his kids.

      These are the kind of men whose children are at their daddy’s bedside when he’s sick and who take care of him in his old age.

      I wish mine would say he has to take care of anyone besides his kids. Chile please, the kids get taken care of, but if me his wife have to work, that babymoma better work. You gets no freebies and if he didn’t marry you then he is not obligated to take care of her. If he need to do that they need to be married. Not one babymoma is gonna support their babydaddy if she not with them, TRUTH!!!!

    We continue to SHOW the world that the ORIGINAL people of this earth can’t have a positive, respectful and caring relationship. $7.000 a month for child support. Will the money make him a great father? Is that all she needs from her dad? Come on people ! Money is fine but our children need DAD everyday and all day. I’m not saying he not a good dad but he should be robbed of his money. Fathers love there child too just let US and some sisters keep your drama.

      Children surely do need their fathers everyday and all day. Mothers need to know that. “I can do bad all by myself” is not a clever saying, because you are not by yourself. You have a man’s child, and the child has two parents for a reason.

    The easiest way to settle it would be for Luda to petition for physical custody…that way he & the child can enjoy Luda’s current standard of living in his house. She’s not entitled to a “lifestyle upgrade” just for baby-making, though she (and other gold-diggers here) may think she is.

    Maybe the court will let her have visitation privileges…lol.

    Let the MAN raise his SON…
