Comedian and actress Sherri Shepherd has been in the hot seat for several months now that her legal battle with ex-husband, Lamar Sally, has gotten more and more intense.

Things have seemed to get messier since the two of them first began to fight over the determination of just how much money the actress would be paying to Sally for the support of their surrogate son.

During her interview with The Dr. Oz Show, which aired just days ago, the former talk show host openly explained that her problem doesn’t stand with the baby, however, she does have an issue with her ex-husband and his current demands.

“I feel I had a very tight pre-nup but there’s a baby here and I have always said I would take care of his son because he’s here and I make money,” she said, according to Page Six. “I always said I would provide financially.”

Take a look at what she had to say in the video below:

Sally took it upon himself to file a petition just last year, in 2016, in order to receive an increase in his monthly child support payments from $4,100, however, the judge denied the request.
“I think that what he was asking for allowed for him not to have to work,” she said.
Speaking of the precious two-year-old baby boy, Shepherd did say that she is his sole provider and has absolutely no problem with taking care of her and Sally’s child.
“Even now, he never has to worry about anything as long as I’m working. He’s on my health insurance. He’s got a life insurance policy in case anything happens to me. He’ll be taken care of the way Jeffrey [her other son] is. I’ve just chosen to take myself out because I think it’s worse for a child with two parents not getting along.”
So, what are your thoughts on this news? Do you think Shepherd is doing what she should for the child? Or should she even be paying for a child that isn’t biologically hers?
