Atlanta rapper-actor Ludacris has been making the scene with his lovely lady friendEudoxie quite a bit lately, but found the time to father a child with another woman, TMZ reports.
The gossip site, which does a bang-up job chronicling the procreative activities of various celebrities, notes that Ludacris has filed paperwork establishing paternity and seeking to cap child support at $1,754.66 monthly.
"He's filed legal docs ... claiming he's only pulling in $25,842.41 a month on average," TMZ reports.
Cai Bella Bridges was born Dec. 9, TMZ reports.
Luda has another daughter, Karma, from a past relationship. He brought Karma to an Atlanta screening of "Fast and Furious 6" in May of 2013. He first signed on for the sequel to the original F&F. Then he was back for "Fast Five," which filmed in Atlanta although it was set mostly in Rio de Janeiro.
"I'm loving it," he told us at the time. "I'm getting the acting bug."
He plays a wisecracking computer genius in the series.
"I love that smart role," he said.
Ludacris, known in court documents as Chris Bridges, had been working on "Fast and Furious 7" last fall. The studio pushed pause on the film after the Nov. 30 death of star Paul Walker, although reports indicate filming will crank up in Abu Dhabi in the new year. It had been filming for months in Atlanta, although it's unclear how much of that footage will be used now, or whether the story line will need a major reworking. It's unclear whether the film's hiatus affects cast members' paychecks.
In other Luda news, he and Kevin Hart and Nelly along with "their entourage of girlfriends and friends" rang in 2014 at Compound, at a bash hosted by Hennessy V.S and AG Entertainment. An official missive from party organizers reported: "Fresh off of their couples retreat, Kevin Hart and Ludacris were dressed to kill in classic black tuxedos. Their girlfriends Eudoxie and Enicko Parrish were just as stylish in almost matching black gowns with see-thru paneling. The couples smoked cigars and enjoyed Hennessy V.S cocktails alongside the newly engaged Keshia Knight-Pulliam and Big Tigger."
Wait, newly engaged? Although Keshia revealed the two were in a relationship recently, Big Tigger posted a tweet with a photo of her ring-free left hand. "We just sittin here laughing & wondering who, when, and where #anybody #confirmed an #engagement to@peachespulliam," he wrote. Maybe that was meant to be an intriguiging harbinger of things to come.
