Sherri Shepherd wants the Supreme Court to take her surrogate son off her hands.
The 48-year-old has filed legal documents with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to stop having to pay $4600 a month to her estranged husband, Lamar Sally, to support the surrogate child they agreed to have together, reports TMZ.
While none of her DNA was used in the fertilization process, the former couple conceived with a donor egg and a surrogate to carry the baby. Midway through the pregnancy, Sherri and Lamar split up. Their child, Lamar Jr, was born in August 2014.
With Shepherd wanting no involvement, Sally has been caring for the 17-month-old boy ever since.
Despite the contentious custody battle, Shepherd manages to indulge her maternal instincts as the biological mother of her ten-year-old son, Jeffrey, from her previous marriage to Jeffrey Tarpley.
