Sherri Shepherd’s Ex-Husband Trying To Be The Perfect ‘Playa’

By Dr. Sinclair N. Grey III

Have you ever noticed when public figures go through a tumultuous relationship, the media quickly jumps on it? No matter what may have a caused a couple to part ways, the media will search for some drama and exploit it. Relationships make great entertainment news, especially the ones with drama.

By now, you probably heard that former “View” co-host, Sherri Shepherd and her ex-husband, Lamar Sally were full of drama. Well, that drama has only escalated in that Sully has put himself on the dating market.

On the new dating site that Sully is using, he says that he only works 20-30 hours per week and makes $100,000 per year.

Shepherd was not too happy with the fact that Sully is claiming to be well off with $100,000 per year. In a tweet dated on January 25th, Shepherd says, “Sally is using child support monies to be ‘well off.’”

Because there is the notion that child support means ‘well-off,’ an article in Rolling Out states,“Just before the inauguration weekend, Shepherd had a huge victory in the California family court. Sally and his counsel were humiliated as the judge flat out denied his request and politely asked Sally to be seated in the audience, away from counsel table so he could properly dispose of the matter,” Shepherd’s rep told The Huffington Post in a statement. “The California judge agreed with Shepherd’s counsel Terry Levich Ross, Esq. and determined that by Sally’s own agreement in two separate legal judgments, New Jersey has exclusive and ongoing jurisdiction over this child support issue and all matters must be dealt with only in that state. The amount of child support Shepherd is currently paying her ex-husband is more than New Jersey has required her to pay, so if Sally wanted to revisit the matter in a New Jersey court he would likely face having his payments reduced substantially.”

Sully and his legal team disagree with the judge’s ruling. For the record, Shepherd makes approximately $3 million per year. By the way, she works about 15 hours per day.
