In the midst of an ugly custody battle, Ludacris has asked a judge to seal the entire case because he claims the drama is destroying his reputation, reports Radar Online.
In exclusive court documents, the rapper says he’s been “publicly humiliated” because his baby mama Tamika Fuller isn’t happy with the amount of child support he pays in accordance with Georgia guidelines.
“Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file in this case, every day since Jan. 1, 2014, I have been publically humiliated and called a deadbeat dad, who does not want to see or support his minor child. Nothing could be further from the truth,” said the rapper, born Christopher Brian Bridges.
Ludacris claimed that Fuller, who gave birth to their baby in December 2013, has not allowed him to see their daughter. Nevertheless, he said he’d already paid almost $3,500 in child support before their daughter was two weeks old.
In the court filing, Ludacris also noted a story titled “Ludacris Baby Mama – You Treat Our Kid Worse Than a Dog,” saying it appears to be the media’s goal to tear down his reputation.
“The news articles… say very negative things. I would hate for our daughter to ever see the blogs that have nothing good to say about either of her parents,” he added.
He concluded: “In the event that an ex parte Order is not granted, and people are able to continue to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file, my name, reputation, character, goodwill and brand will continue to suffer irreversible harm and damage, which may eventually jeopardize my earning potential.”
