Right after his surprise wedding to girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue (following a very cute proposal may we say), Ludacris continued his heated custody battle with baby mother Tamika Fuller over their daughter, Cai Bridges. In the end, Luda—whose government name is Chris Bridges—won the battle over his 13-month-old daughter.
“After review of all the evidence, the testimony of the witnesses, the report of the guardian ad litem, and the claims made throughout this entire case, 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,” the rapper revealed in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.
During the trial, Fuller discussed how Luda offered her $10,000 and a home if she would’ve had an abortion, and also asked the court for an increase in child support payments. Luda countered her arguments saying that the comments she’s been making to press have been damaging to his reputation, and that Cai would have a more stable home environment with him, his wife, and older daughter, Karma.
While Fuller claimed Luda’s shotgun wedding was an attempt to steal custody (and get out of paying child support), the judge ultimately decided Fuller’s salary couldn’t compare to Bridges’. In addition, a source reported to Bossip that Fuller was also questioned about her disappearance for years following the birth of her oldest daughter, leading to the belief of child abandonment.
Ultimately, the courts found Luda to be the most “fit” parent. We wish their family the best!
