Sherri Shepherd is officially the mother of little Lamar. A judge in Pennsylvania deemed the former ‘View’ co-host as legally responsible for the youngster on Tuesday.
According to TMZ,
“Sherri Shepherd has lost her epic battle with her soon to be ex-husband … she’s officially listed as the mother of the child who was born via surrogate … TMZ has learned.
Shepherd and her estranged husband, Lamar Sally, have been battling in court since the child’s birth in August and it’s been all about the moolah. Sherri claims she was tricked into having the child with Sally and therefore has no connection or responsibility to the child.
A Pennsylvania just begged to differ, ruling her Hancock belongs on the birth cert.”
Although Sherri was disappointed in the ruling, Lamar was satisfied with the decision. “It’s bittersweet,” said Sally outside of the courthouse. “I’m glad it’s over, but I feel sad what it had to come to. Now I can go back to L.A. and tend to my son.” The screenwriter also called for his estranged wife to issue a public apology for statements she made that accused him of being a gold digger who tricked her assuming legal responsibility for their son.
Lamar Jr., is Sherri and Lamar’s only child together. Shepherd also has a son named Jeffrey from her marriage to Jeffrey Tarpley Sr.
