Wants judge to seal court proceedings to protect his reputation.
Ludacris' baby mama drama is ruining his reputation, the rapper claims in court documents filed recently and obtained by RadarOnline.com. Luda, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, is asking the judge to seal all documents and proceedings associated with his ongoing custody battle with Tamika Fuller.
According to the documents, Luda believes he is being "publicly humiliated" because Fuller is unhappy with the amount of child support the Georgia paternity system has calculated he must pay. “Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file in this case, every day since January 1, 2014, I have been publicly humiliated and called a deadbeat dad who does not want to see or support his minor child. Nothing could be further from the truth,” the rapper and entrepreneur said.
“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 added.
Fuller gave birth to their daughter in December 2013. Ludacris, who has been in a long-term relationship with model Eudoxie, went public with the news and requested a paternity test. He claims he paid $3,500 in child support before the child was even two weeks old. At one point, Luda even made a motion to get full custody of the infant.
In the recent court documents, Luda and his lawyers clearly paved the way for legal action against Fuller if their request is not granted. “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,” he said.
