Ludacris Money Problems?
In February of 2014 Ludacris was taken to court by a former girlfriend over child support payments. His baby-mama Tamika Fuller is demanding $15,000 a month to help her raise their two year old daughter Cai. Shockingly, Ludacris claimed to the judge that he is struggling for money right now. He reported to the judge that his entire income for the year 2013 was just $55,000. Furthermore, Ludacris told the judge that he was expecting a big payday with the next Fast and the Furious movie, but production is now on hold due to Paul Walker's tragic death in December 2013. Luda offered to pay Tamika $1800 a month. In the meantime, the judge ordered the payments to be $7000 a month until all the financial details are reviewed.
On the other hand, between August 2014 and August 2015, Luda earned approximately $8 million from his various acting and musical endeavors.
