Media mogul Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband, Lamar Sally have reached an agreement in their messy divorce dispute. Shepherd has agreed to pay Sally $4,000 a month in child support for a baby she and Sally commissioned a surrogate to carry for them.
According to Page Six the monthly payments will increase to $4,600 when Lamar Sally, Jr. turns 13.
The couple split in May 2014 after 3 years of marriage.
Sally’s sperm was used to fertilize a donor egg. Shepherd, 48, had argued that she was not financially responsible for the infant since she was not the biological mother.
But in April, a judge ruled Shepherd was the legal mother of Lamar Sally, Jr.
In addition to agreeing to the terms of the child support, Shepherd and Sally, 44, agreed to “destroy” any remaining fertilized embryos being stored in a freezer at a fertility clinic.
Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Shepherd can still sue Sally for coercing her into the surrogacy arrangement in the hopes of obtaining child support.
Lamar Sally, Sr. is unemployed.
