Sherri Shepherd’s ongoing divorce battle with her estranged-husband, Lamar Sally, took an interesting turn this week as reports surfaced that “The View” co-host is reportedly fighting to attain custody of the couple’s unborn child, according to pre-nuptial documents obtained by TMZ.
Sally’s separation request requested primary custody of the child, who’s due on July 28 via a surrogate. However, Shepherd has asked in the divorce documents to enforce the couple's prenuptial agreement, in which Sally agrees that the host will have full custody of the newborn. But the television writer has alleged that the agreement is based on “fraud,” in hopes to nullify the document.
Prior to Sally and Shepherd’s now public split, she opened up to Hello Beautiful during the July 2013 premiere of Kevin Hart's "Let Me Explain" 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 and new friendships, you know, it takes, 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,” she said.
“I get over a breakup…with time. 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 break-up to know who you are and be by yourself and to be ok with being by yourself.”
