Ludacris made headlines last week when it was revealed that he had fathered a child outside of his long-term relationship with model Eudoxie, but now Luda's baby mama Tamika Fuller wants to tell her side of the story.
The paternity case was brought to court by the rapper, who wanted to cap child support payments to $1800. Fuller reportedly fought for higher payments and some say she attempted to "extort" Luda for cash and a car in exchange for signing a gag order.
"It saddens me that it has come to this," Fuller's statement begins. "I did not file on him. Nor would I ever try to attempt to extort my child’s fathers. I've 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."
She continues, "[My daughter] 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," the note concludes. "We have a child to co parent. Be blessed."
Ludacris has not yet commented on either the ongoing case or Fuller's note. As of now, he and Eudoxie are still together.
