Sherri Shepherd’s Ex-Husband Wants More Money For Baby That Isn’t Even Hers
BY: NISHA THOMAS
Sherri Shepherd’s ex-husband and the father of their surrogate son, Lamar Sally, is now requesting that he receive an increase in his current child support payments, according to new court documents that were obtained by PEOPLE.
The little boy, L.J., who is now two-years-old and was conceived by a donor egg, has absolutely no ties to the comedian and television personality. However, back in November of 2015 Shepherd was ordered to remain on his birth certificate and continue to pay child support to Sally for the little boy.
Now, the father of L.J. has filed for a modification in his child support payments because of Shepherd’s increase of earnings, according to court documents.
“Based upon all of the new projects that [Shepherd] is currently involved, I am informed and believe that she earns approximately $3 million per year, which is substantially more than what our previous support order was based upon,” the documents read. “Based upon [Shepherd’s] increase in income, I seek an increase in child support commensurate with her income level.”
Sally, 46, is now requesting that there be an increase in the support fees because he believes that she is now making $1.8 million more than what the order was based upon at first.
“That based upon a presumption that Sherri will earn no less than $1.2 million per annum; that Lamar will, can or should earn no less than $35,ooo per annum; and that Sherri presently does not seek parenting time with the child,” the marital settlement statement read.
Sally, who currently works as a substitute teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District, makes claims that he is only making between $140 and $186 a day and that his son is “suffering from a genetic disorder known as G6PD,” which allegedly requires that his diet be managed and he eat organically.
Shepherd’s ex-husband is also requesting that former co-host of The View pay his attorney’s fees and costs. “I still have outstanding legal fees from our initial litigation fees three years ago, wherein [Shepherd] took the matter all the way to the Supreme Court. The litigation cost me well over $150,000, and left me with no savings and monthly payments. I anticipate this post judgement matter will be no different and costs in order to level the playing field,” the docs state.
“I am requesting attorney fees and costs in the amount of $75,000, due to [Shepherd’s] past litigation behavior. Additionally, [Shepherd] has several income streams and I anticipate that [she] will be forthcoming with documents, requiring discovery,” the docs read.
