Sherri Shepherd Takes Surrogacy Custody Battle To Superior Court
Sherri Shepherd‘s surrogacy saga just won’t end! The TV personality is appealing a Pennsylvania court ruling that dubbed her financially responsible for a child born via surrogate mother with her ex, Lamar Sally, according to reports.
The 48-year-old had filed an appeal to remove her name from one-year-old Lamar Jr.’s birth certificate and avoid paying child support, but was later denied .
Shepherd currently pays $4,100 per month for her son, which is set to increase to $4,600 after he turns 13.
According to court documents, the former View host paid close to $100,000 to a New Jersey fertility agency in order to have a surrogacy-born baby with Sally.
But once their marriage crumbled, Shepherd attempted to void the contract altogether — when surrogate Jessica Bartholomew was already far along in her pregnancy .
Meanwhile, throughout the ordeal, Sally has been very vocal about his disapproval of Shepherd’s behavior, stating last year that she had “turned her back” on her own son .
Will Sherri succeed in breaking free from her contract or is this a battle that’s not worth fighting anymore? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
