Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris can finally get back to music-making and playing daddy after coming up big in his publicized child custody battle with ex-girlfriend Tamika Fuller.

According to reports, Luda now has primary custody of his one-year-old daughter.

The decision comes after baby mama Tamika Fuller bitterly testified Luda didn’t want the baby when he found out she was pregnant, and even tried to negotiate an abortion by throwing 10K her way. But sources connected with the rapper tell TMZ … the judge reviewed the report from an independent expert as well as the testimony and concluded Luda was the more fit parent. (TMZ)

Luda has also confirmed the judge’s decision and expressed his excitement to have custody.

Luda tells TMZ, “I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter.” (TMZ)

Pics of Luda’s daughter Cai Bella started to make their rounds online last fall.

Ludacris’ Baby mother Tamika Fuller is sharing new pics of their daughter…except she’s keeping baby Cai Bella’s face from being shown. And we hear, it’s per Ludacris’ orders. Tamika declared her almost 11-month-old baby girl as her #WCW on her Instagram recently, with the caption, “My #wcw #wce #wc4l #myTink #myheart #mybaby #myprecious #myreason #myeverything #MommyGang #blessed” (The YBF)

Luda made headlines last April after a judge ruled against him in the 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.
