Too little too late? Ludacris is asking the courts to seal his child support case because it’s ruining his reputation. You may recall Ludacris ran to the courts at the top of the year in an attempt to have his child support payments to Tamika Fuller locked in at $1,800 a month. Since then, more and more dirty details of the case have been made public. Needless to say, Ludacris’ image is being tainted severely because of it.
“Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file in this case, every day since Jan. 1, 2014, I have been publically humiliated and called a deadbeat dad, who does not want to see or support his minor child. Nothing could be further from the truth,” said Ludacris. He claims that not only has Tamika not allowed him to see their daughter, he also says that he has paid $3,500 in child support before she was even two weeks old.
“The news articles… say very negative things. I would hate for our daughter to ever see the blogs that have nothing good to say about either of her parents,” he continues, “In the event that an ex parte Order is not granted, and people are able to continue to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file, my name, reputation, character, goodwill and brand will continue to suffer irreversible harm and damage, which may eventually jeopardize my earning potential.”
Is this too little too late? Should he have probably done all of this on January 1st?
