Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris is reportedly pointing his finger to the passing of close friend and fellow Fast and the Furious co-star Paul Walker over current money woes he is experiencing.
According to reports, Luda said his big pay day from the stalled Fast and the Furious 7 movie has hit his pockets.
Ludacris can’t afford to pay thousands of dollars in child support — and he’s blaming his financial woes on the death of his “Fast and Furious” co-star Paul Walker. Ludacris was in court Wednesday with his baby mama, Tamika Fuller … who’s demanding Luda pay her $15K a month to take care of his 2-month-old baby daughter, Cai. But Luda went to court and told the judge … he was counting on “Fast and Furious 7″ money to make his payments, and the movie is now on hold so his payday went away. (TMZ)
Until things simmer down and Luda returns to court, he is expected to pay roughly $7,000 for monthly child support payments.
Luda claims he can only pay $1,800 a month — confessing he only made around $55K for 2013. The judge split the baby down the middle, ordering Luda to pay 7K a month for now … while hizzoner reviews all the financial docs. By the way … Tyrese also claimed relative poverty in his child support case because of Walker’s death. (TMZ)
Despite the buzzing gossip and rumors, Luda’s surprise baby mother recently said she never tried to extort Luda in exchange for staying mum about their daughter.
“It saddens me that it has come to this. I did not file on him. Nor would I ever try to attempt to extort my child’s fathers. Ive never asked him to buy me a car. I had engine trouble. I asked to borrow one of his during my pregnancy so that I could continue 2 get 2 work. I have never been a stripper. I did waitress there in my past. I have since moved on from that. Some of the best people I know are dancers.” (Necole Bitchie)
Tamika also asked media and fans alike to refrain from pumping negativity into the private matter.
“She has yet to meet her father and it’s unfortunate because I would never keep him from seeing her. Let’s not lose focus that an innocent child is involved and her best interests come before any of all of this foolishness. In spite of all that has already happened I just ask that the negativity stop towards him and I. We have a child to co parent. Be blessed.” (Necole Bitchie)
Buzz behind the rap star fathering a child in December heated up the Internet earlier this month.
Much like the NBA star, Ludacris — real name, Chris Bridges — went on a break with his longtime love early in 2013, which is when he hooked up with the baby’s mother, Tamika Fuller. Tamika is said to be a friend from his high school days in Georgia. The child, a girl named Cai Bella Bridges, was born on December 9. Cai is Luda’s second daughter, joining big sis, 11-year-old Karma. Even though the two girls have different mothers, hopefully they can still get to know each other! (Wet Paint)
