Sherri Shepherd's surrogate is speaking out about the cold shoulder she and "the baby" are getting from the famed actress and the toll it's taking on her financially. Find out what she said inside...
In a new interview with Inside Edition, which airs tonight, Jessica Bartholomew (Sherri Shepherd's surrogate) slams the former “View” host for walking out on her child. You'll recall that Sherri and her estranged husband Lamar Sallyenlisted Jessica as their surrogate and she birthed a baby boy, Lamar Jr.
Unfortunately, Sherri cut out on the marriage, according to Jessica and Sal, before the baby's due date. Now, Jessica says Sherri doesn't want anything to do with the child (Lamar Jr. does not carry her DNA).
Jessica has decided to share her story, revealing that she is listed on the child’s birth certificate as a “noncustodial parent” and is being pursued for child support by the state of California!
On her life since the birth of Lamar Jr.
“It’s affected me a lot. I am now listed as a noncustodial parent in California. I have a child support case coming against me now.”
On life since Sherri left the picture:
“Because [Shepherd] doesn’t want to be a part of the baby’s life, I have to pick up all the slack with my name being on the birth certificate, a noncustodial parent, medical bills. I’m still considered the mother of a child that’s not mine.”
On being angry with Sherri:
“I am angry with Sherri because she never once contacted me to tell me what was happening. It was kind of like I was left out in the cold.”
On how Sherri changed:
“She would call up and check on me during the pregnancy in the beginning. At the 20 week appointment, she seemed very excited. She was going to see the baby for the first time…I didn’t see any warning signs right away.”
What se's like to ask Sherri:
“I would ask Sherri why she did what she did – if she thought it was okay to do something like that…I just don’t understand how she can act like this baby is nonexistent. It just blows my mind.”
Meanwhile, Sherri is busy taping scenes for TV LAND's series "The Soul Man" starring Niecy Nash and Cedric The Entertainer.
Kyle Norman, a member of Jagged Edge is behind bars for allegedly attacking his fiancee. So much for asking her to meet him at the alter. More inside...
Sigh.....maybe R&B group "Jagged Edge" should have delayed their comeback. In case you missed it, the former So So Def artists are waging a return to the charts. While they've already dropped "Getting Over You" and "Love Come Down", their efforts may be derailed because of one member in particular.
Kyle Norman (atop) is standing in his own way, landing himself in jail for allegedly assaulting his fiancee. CBS in Atlanta reported Kyle's arrest, revealing that cops responded to a disturbance call about a fight between an engaged couple. When police arrived, they were met by the victim who said she had gotten into an argument with her fiance Kyle about his drinking. The police report states that the victim:
had welts under her eyes
a golf ball sized knot on her upper left forehead
a cut to her nose
a burst blood vessel in her eye
The victim accused Kyle of punching and choking her, then shoving her engagement ring down her throat!
\Wait....didn't Kyle sing on "Let's Get Married"? SMH.....
Although Kyle had allegedly broken the victim's phone, she managed to call the police (using his cell) and run to a neighbor's home. When police arrived, an officer reports that he saw Kyle running down the sidewalk and as he pulled up, he turned around and shouted at them, "I need to go to jail."
Sounds like that brown liquor was talking.
While the victim was taken to Atlanta Medical Center, Kyle was taken to jail and charged with aggravated assault. And to help make sense of this, Kyle told the cops that he was upset about his dad having cancer - and that led to the drinking and the argument.
Amber Rose was spotted making moves on the West Coast. In addition to doting on her adorable tot Sebastian, she attended a meeting. See pics of Amber out and about and check out Diddy heading into an office building...
Model, actress and LA/Hollywood socialite Amber Rose (shown above with her assistant) was spotted on the run yesterday...in her Ferrari.
One of Amber's many stops around town was a run to McDonald's where she treated her son Sebastian to lunch.
Bash clearly earned his Happy Meal as he allowed mommy to shower him with love and affection.
After lunch with Bash, Amber headed to Hollywood for a meeting.
We're not sure what Amber's meeting was about, but we're glad to see she dressed for the occasion. You'll recall that she spent last week posting provocative pics from Miami - at least she's covered up in LA.
At the same building....
Photographers caught Diddy walking into the same office building as Amber Rose. While the two were not spotted talking to one another, they might have met to discuss a joint venture. Hmmm.....maybe Amber is about to become a Ciroc girl?
