In an almost embarrassing display of arrogance, RHOA's Lisa Wu Hartwell told Star magazine in a recent interview that she is taking R&B crooner Keith Sweat back to court to seek full custody of their two boys so she can put them on her show.
As you already know, in 2003 Sweat won full custody of their sons Jordan, now 14, and Justin, 11, due to Lisa Wu's unstable maturity and poor judgment. Sweat was able to prove to a judge that she was an unfit mother due to her reckless spending habits. In court documents it was revealed that Lisa Wu routinely stole from Sweat right in front of the children during their "tumultuous" marriage.
The judge wrote:
"Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children… There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children." Source
Court documents make it clear that Lisa Wu's current custody challenge is financially motivated. In addition to seeking full custody of the boys, she is also requesting child support to supplement her income now that her husband, former NFL player Ed Hartwell, has no visible means of support.
Lisa Wu tells Star, "I've already been seeing them four or five times a week, but now the time has come when I want to have them with me full-time." She filed for custody in February of this year -- right around the time when she was filming her TV series. Her next court date is in October.
According to Star, "if she's successful, the next step will be having Jordan and Justin appear on RHOA." Hopefully the judge reads the blogs and will see that Lisa Wu is a gold digger who has no problem pimping her children out for television ratings.
As I wrote in an earlier post, Sweat is adamantly opposed to his children appearing in the television series, and in the past he has refused to sign a waiver permitting Bravo to film the boys.
“If Keith has a hang-up about our sons being on TV, I would be fine with that. But Real Housewives is supposed to be a reality series. The reality is that all the fans watching believe I only have one child,” said Lisa Wu who has a 2-year-old son, EJ, with Hartwell.
