Congratulations may not be in order just yet, as the little one has unknowingly come into the midst of a bitter battle between the talk show host and her estranged husband Lamar Sally. Sherri (who already has a son with Jeff Tarpley) claims that ex-hubby Lamar convinced her to sign the surrogacy papers under false pretenses, as Madame Noire explains:
“As the time for the surrogate to give birth drew closer, Lamar filed for divorce from Sherri. It is believed that this was all a scheme so that he could cash in on child support checks from the actress and comedian.”
Due to this, Sherri is hoping to have the contract dismissed on the grounds of fraud. Sources close to Lamar reveal that that he’s really excited to be a daddy but we’ll have to wait and see whether Sherri will be expected to provide support for the child.
We’re just glad the little tyke is blissfully unaware of all of the drama going on around him.
