While Sherri Shepherd and soon-to-be ex-husband, Lamar Sally filed for divorce months ago, Shepherd is now just opening up about that divorce and the baby they had via surrogate.
Sally has said the two are in the process of negotiating responsibility for the newborn, while Shepherd contends they were “in court.” Sally has been more open about the divorce and court cases. He says that Shepherd has yet to meet the baby, and that he has also asked her to put her name on the baby’s birth certificate. The child has been named “L.J.” for Lamar Jr.. “I think it’s the worst thing in the world for L.J. to look at his birth certificate at 16 and see it says, ‘Mother unknown,'” he explained.
Shepherd Mum’s the Word
Meanwhile Shepherd has said little. “We don’t talk but I’m on my knees praying a lot for him,” she said about her ex. “I have a lot of lawyers… and it’s very public and it’s very painful. For me, I’m not Tori [Spelling] and Dean [McDermott]: I’m not paid to talk about my life.” In addition to this divorce, Shepherd has also recently gone to court with her first husband, over the custody of their 9-year-old son, Jeffrey. Shepherd won her case for retaining custody of him.”Anybody who knows me knows that I live for my son,” she gushed. “He is everything to me. That’s my baby.”
Tackling divorce and child custody issues can be a very difficult process. There are many different ways to build your case. A family law attorney will be able to walk you through the process if you are facing either.
