Disturbin’ Tha Peace leader Ludacris knows how to make a quick buck after reportedly cashing-in on a fancy California home and banking nearly a million dollars. #fastcash
According to reports, Luda sold one of his luxury Los Angeles homes for over $800,000.
We got pics inside the 2 bed, 2-bath West L.A. condo he sold for $830K. He paid $669K for the place back in 2002 … right after “Area Codes” blew up, by the way. Luda also sold a 2nd unit in the same building … but lost a couple hundred grand on that one. If the condos seem like small potatoes for Ludacris … keep in mind he recently paid $4.8M for a baller pad up in the Hills of Hollywood, and still keeps a $2.8 million crib in Atlanta. (TMZ)
Luda made headlines last April after a judge ruled against him in a child support case.
Ludacris has been embroiled in a nasty child custody battle and in new legal documents exclusive obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Georgia judge sided with the rapper’s baby mama and he’s been ordered to pay her legal bill. “Petitioner shall pay to Respondent’s counsel, Thirty Five Thousand Dollars ($35,000.00), in addition to any amounts previously awarded or paid, as an award of temporary attorney’s fees and expenses of litigation,” the March 20 ruling reads. “Said amount shall be paid to Respondent’s counsel within 10 days of the date of this order.” And because Ludacris’ motion to have Fuller found in contempt was denied, he was knocked an extra $2,000 in fees for that too.

In February, reports claimed Luda was putting up a strong fight against his surprise baby mother.
Rapper Ludacris wants to do something so shocking, it will send shock waves through the rap community — he’s fighting for CUSTODY of his kid. Luda and baby mama Tamika Fuller are duking it out in an Atlanta court over custody and child support. They had a baby girl 2 months ago and Tamika’s been taking care of the kid. The rapper now says in legal docs he’s a “fit and capable parent” and should get full physical custody. He offers up his parental resume, saying he’s always been “an active father” to his 12-year-old girl. (TMZ)
To make matters more complicated, the rap star reportedly wanted his daughter’s mother to cough up child support.
Now the plot thickens. Luda has also asked the judge to force Tamika to pay HIM child support. That’s interesting, because Tamika was asking for $15K a month in child support and Ludacris pleaded poverty, saying Paul Walker’s death derailed “Fast & Furious 7″ and his cash flow dried up. The judge awarded her $7K a month. So the question … does Luda really want custody, or is this a way to turn the financial tables? (TMZ)
