It looks like Sherri Shepherd has two custody battles on her hands. The first one comes from her estranged husband Lamar Sally, who is fighting for full legal custody to their unborn child, and the second is from her ex-hubby Jeffrey Tarpley, who now wants physical custody of their 9-year-old son Jeffrey Jr.

According to reports, Tarpley recently filed an emergency request to modify their current parenting arrangement. In his legal documents he states that “The View” co-host is a workaholic and it’s caused her to neglect their special needs son. “Jeffrey claims Sherri regularly leaves their son with ‘unskilled nannies’ … as a result, he’s falling way behind in school, suffers from low self-esteem, and has to use Velcro shoes because he can’t tie laces,” TMZ reports. He adds Sherri hasn’t taught the boy how to properly clean himself so hygiene is also an issue.

He’s asking the court to allow Jeffrey Jr. to relocate from New Jersey to California, where he can raise him full time. In response, Sherri says Jeffrey is an absentee dad who deserves no part in her son’s life.

The judge denied the emergency request but scheduled a hearing for July.
