Earlier this month it was revealed that Sherri Shepherd was appealing her case all the way to the Supreme Court in an effort to have her name removed from the birth certificate of the child born via surrogate during her messy divorce from Lamar Sally [click here if you missed that].
Lamar opens up about the real emotional damage being done to their son...
Lamar tells Radar Online
"Sherri has literally made my life a living hell as far as what she’s done, what she’s done to my reputation in the media, what she has just put me through. I’m $100,000 in debt because of this, lawyer fees.”
“She’s left me to be a single parent of a sick child and it’s just not right. And to have it come from someone that I loved and loved enough to marry her… She doesn’t want to be a part of LJ’s life. I’m going through it. It’s bad.”
“I have a circle of girlfriends that watch him, that help me out. I wouldn’t say one particular person, but I have a village of friends that all kind of pitch in and they always want him to spend the night or spend time with him, like I said, because he’s such a good kid. They love him.”
“With my village of friends, everybody kind of pitches in in the mother world doing the things that Sherri is supposed to do.”
“He says, ‘Mama,’ and I just tell him, ‘I’m working on it son. I’m working on it. I wish he could say, ‘Good mama’ because that’s the thing I’m looking for is a good person, a good female to be in his life.”
“He gravitates towards women, and I think it’s because he doesn’t have a woman in his life. So when a woman picks him up, he just hugs them real tight.”
“He calls random women ‘mama.' It’s sad.”
