Not only did Sherri Shepherd's husband file for a separation earlier this month, but Lamar Sally's filing revealed an explosive secret that the two are expecting a son via a surrogate and he wants full custody!
Filed on May 2 in Los Angeles, Sally filed after nearly three years of marriage to The View co-host citing irreconcilable differences — but the real bombshell was listed under the declaration of minor children in which the TV writer listed an unborn son.
Listed as Lamar Sally Jr., a due date of July 28, 2014 is listed for the unborn child.
A source previously told Radar of the couple's nasty split that while Shepherd, 47, was desperate for another child, she didn't believe Sally, 43, would step up as a father figure.
"Sherri has a full time nanny, who drives Jeffrey to school every day and picks him up in the afternoon. This has been going on for years, and Lamar doesn’t even offer to help. It is unfortunate.
"Sherri started to wonder if he’d ever be able to step up once they had another child, or if she’d be practically raising the child alone,” the source said.
But Sally obviously feels differently, as he's asked for full legal and physical custody of their unborn son, with visitations granted to Shepherd.
On top of custody, Sally is also requesting spousal support from Shepherd and asking that the Beauty Shop actress pay his legal fees.
This will be the second divorce for Shepherd, who divorced ex Jeff Tarpley in 2009 after having one son, Jeffrey, with him.
