Big Boi

Antwan Andre Patton, a.k.a. Big Boi, is not giving up his parental rights without a fight. The rapper recently took his estranged wife, Sherlita Patton, to court in hopes of getting joint custody of their 12-year-old son, Cross. Although Sherlita has filed for sole custody of the tween, Antwan told the courts that he believes his son would benefit from spending time with both parents. Big Boi is willing to pay any amount of child support that the Georgia court system deems necessary to take care of Cross but has suggested that Sherlita pursue a career to support herself.


Ludacris is also facing child support woes as he told a judge earlier this week that he was unable to pay a whopping $15,000 to Tamika Fuller for 2-month-old daughter Cali. TMZ reports,

“Ludacris was in court Wednesday with his baby mama, Tamika Fuller … who’s demanding Luda pay her $15K a month to take care of his 2-month-old baby daughter, Cai. But Luda went to court and told the judge … he was counting on ‘Fast and Furious 7′ money to make his payments, and the movie is now on hold so his payday went away. Luda claims he can only pay $1,800 a month — confessing he only made around $55K for 2013. The judge split the baby down the middle, ordering Luda to pay 7K a month for now.”

Ludacris confirmed his fathering of little Cali a few weeks ago. The rapper also has a daughter named Karma from a previous relationship. Big Boi and Sherlita moved to divorce in October after determining that their union was “irretrievably broken.” The Pattons also have a daughter named Jordan who graduated from high school last year.

  2. Your style is so unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Thanks for posting whben you have the opportunity, Guess
    I’ll just bookmark this blog.

  3. But each and every one of these things turned out to be some guy’s hair-brain scheme to make money.
    It’s required that you have a personal user experience on the product so that your reviews won’t be misleading in
    any way. There is much more than just thinking
    on how to earn money fast. It may be that you would like
    to bring in a steady second income. Find a Scrap Gold Buyer
    - You have likely seen signs in your neighborhood that state: “We Buy Gold.

  4. he can only pay $2k a month but buys his gf $200k cars every other season. come on. he makes more than $55k a year in interest alone off of what he already has in the bank. what a bumb.

  5. The thing is these “rappers” are millionaires their not some simple nine to five dude struggling to make monthly payments to support their children. If they can go around “making it rain” in strip clubs, buying all these expensive cars, taken trips across the globe, making HITS etc. then they can take care of their child/children!

    The point of this whole entire thing well not with Big Boi because he actually married the MOTHER OF HIS CHILD, Ludacris had a baby on the side. So LUDA and men in general if you’re not trying to make these women you’re WIFE or you don’t wanna COMMIT to them then keep you’re THING IN YOUR PANTS!! POINT BLANK AND THE PERIOD.

    I am so tired of hearing about side chicks, side babies and babies being born out of wedlock the cycle needs to stop! There is nothing CUTE about bringing a child into this world with a women that carried you’re child for nine months. She’s good enough to make a baby with but not to married? (0_0) No ma’am!

    • I agree. What kind of parent wouldn’t want their kid to have the best even if they do not care for the mother? Every time I read these stories it makes me thankful for my father. He never complained and I am sure he spent a small fortune just on our education.

      And the sad part is most of these guys wind up going broke anyway. If only they fought as hard to keep their money out of the pockets of crooked managers, record executives and shady accountants. I’d rather see that money go to my child than some thief.

  6. Why does Big boi wife want full custody of their child? If he has not harmed the child, there is no reason why they shouldn’t have joint custody. Maybe money is the motive? Either way, that is just wrong! The boy needs his father

    $15k a month for a newborn is crazy. I know they say the child should have the same lifestyle as the parent, but that money does not guarantee the child will live in luxury. Moms will most likely use the money on herself rather the child. If the mother has poor money management, the child will not live like the other parent regardless of how much child support they get. $7k is enough

  7. I’m sorry but if he’s taking care of the kid on his own terms he should not have to take care of her and all her others kids by paying that much monthly idc how much he makes. Kids are not that expensive. Men get the short end of the stick after they stick the short end in places they don’t belong smh. Oh well ! Who run the world?

    • Why are women so hostile when other women get larger financial settlements? Speaking in general terms if this child was your niece wouldn’t you want her to grow up in a nice house with nice things? Wouldn’t you want her to get a good education? I don’t have to like my sister-in-laws but I would not respect my brothers if they didn’t make sure my nieces and nephew lived well. They didn’t ask to be born and both parents should want the kids to have the BEST. Maybe you don’t believe your child needs that much money but the judge decided this child deserved it.

      • Agreed….why should the child suffer for your infidelity or in the case of Big Boi, your irreconcilable differences in your marriage? You can do what you want with your money as long as you are taking care of your own. If you are that selfish in the way that you spend your money going to stripper clubs and buying 15 cars when there are only 7 days in a week instead of making sure your child has everything he/she needs for a good and secure life then as the saying goes “a fool and his money shall soon part”.
