As television personality Sherri Shepherd continues to manage her public divorce battle with estranged husband Lamar Sally, new reports have surfaced regarding the couple's soon-to-be-born child.

According to TMZ, Sally, a television writer, is reportedly drafting legal documents in an effort to ensure that Shepherd, a former co-host of "The View," doesn't withdraw from their separation request. The request grants Sally full custody of the newborn, who is due July 28 via a surrogate. Sally's legal precaution comes following reports that Shepherd allegedly "doesn't want anything to do with the child and refuses to pay any child support," in the words of an anonymous source quoted by FOX411 this week.

Last July, 10 months prior to filing for divorce, Shepherd opened up to Hello Beautiful on the difficulties of meeting new friends and the importance of healing following a breakup.

"I don't do new friends very easily because I have a hard enough time keeping up with my old friends," Shepherd said in that interview. "You know, to really develop a friendship you need to go through things and I'm not trying to go through new things with new people."

"I get over a breakup ... with time," she continued. "You have to know time will dull everything, and I think don't get back into a new relationship until you heal. You gotta go through it to get over it. So, take time out after a breakup to know who you are and be by yourself and to be OK with being by yourself."
