Ludacris’ Relationship With Tamika Fuller
Christopher Bridges, aka Ludacris and Tamika Fuller, had been friends for a long time before Tamika became pregnant in 2013, and their friendship blossomed into love. The rapper pleaded with her to abort the child to save his name and stardom when she informed him of the pregnancy. However, Fuller opted to retain her child because she had already created an emotional attachment with the child.
On December 9, 2013, Fuller gave birth to a daughter named Cai Bella Bridges. Things turned ugly afterward when Ludacris demanded full custody of their daughter. Because of Tamika’s financial situation, the court ruled against her, and the actor was given full custody of their daughter Cai.
Ludacris and Tamika Fuller’s Custody Battle
Tamika Fuller gave birth to Cai Bridges in December of 2013. She asked for $15,000 in child support per month, and things went quiet for a while. However, things got an ugly turn when the rapper chose to seek physical custody of the child in February 2014. Tamika couldn’t understand why he sought custody of a child he pleaded with her not to keep.
Christopher Bridges cited his daughter Karma as an example of how amazing a father he was, according to TMZ. He also urged the judge to order Tamika to give him child support. He said that his funds had dried up due to the postponement of the Fast and Furious 7 film following actor Paul Walker’s unexpected death. Despite online sites suggesting he had a net worth of $12 million, Luda declared his 2013 income $55,000. He was ordered to pay Tamika $7,000 per month in interim support until the court could make a permanent decision.
During the court hearings in 2015, Tamika repeated her assertions that Ludacris was crazy to want Cai claiming that he had never even met her in person. Christine White, the mother of Luda’s oldest daughter Karma, was an unexpected ally on his side. According to the source, she testified on behalf of the rapper, describing him as a caring father.
After a three-day hearing, Ludacris was given primary custody of baby Cai, and Tamika only got 11 days out of the month. Her monthly salary of $800 as a hotel housekeeping supervisor was deemed insufficient to care for the child by the judge. Also, the court mentioned that Tamika was an inadequate mother as she abandoned her first daughter, whom she had when she was a senior in high school. Though, Fuller claimed that her family assisted her in raising her daughter during her early years and that she never abandoned her. Her cries went unheard.
In October 2016, Ludacris won yet another court dispute when a judge gave him access to monitor Tamika’s social media activities involving their daughter. He was also granted the power to order Tamika to erase any photos he didn’t like. He became the official decision-maker, according to TMZ, and was able to choose their daughter’s schools, physicians, and religious upbringing.
