In September, Luda, born Christopher Bridges, asked that a gag order be enforced on Tamika Fuller, the mother of daughter Cai Bella Bridges, born just under a month ago. The child was reportedly conceived while Luda was on a break from longtime love Eudoxie Agnan.
The father of two argued that Fuller be quieted due to his status as a "major celebrity of great notoriety." He goes on to accuse Fuller of preemptively threatening to publicize his dirty laundry if she didn't get the car and have her legal bills paid. It's not known if he ever followed through with a vehicle, but a Georgia judge denied the gag request all together.
Losing the battle to keep Fuller quiet could prove damaging for Luda. Fuller is said to be a longtime friend that he went to high school with, and although the lovechild was just exposed last week, he began the financial fight before she was born.
Besides the aforementioned September filing, in the same month Luda filed paperwork to keep his child support low. The 36-year-old claimed $25,842.41 in monthly income to set his payments at $1,754.66 per month, substantially less than the $7,000 a month he allegedly pays for landscaping services on his Atlanta home, and the $5,000 a month to take care of his pets.
Luda is said to be worth more than $60 million. In 2012 he was named one of the "20 Richest Rappers Alive Today."
