On July 14, reports surfaced that the former co-host of a popular daytime talk show is embroiled in a complicated divorce and legal action involving a child born with the aid of the surrogate. The former member of "The View," Sherri Shepherd, recently filed for divorce in New Jersey in response to a California filing for legal separation by her husband of three years.
Under California law the petition for legal separation filed by Shepherd's husband, Lamar Sally, will be converted into a divorce once his requirement for residency is fulfilled. According to his court filings, Sally is seeking to legally separate from Shepherd and he wants full legal and physical custody of a surrogate child which is scheduled to be born July 28. Sally also once told the court to invalidate a prenuptial agreement between the couple which would grant full custody of the child to Shepherd after its birth.
