Sherri Shepherd’s Baby Surrogate Speaks Out
Is Sherri Shepherd wrong for this?
Sherri Shepherd is going through a pretty public messy divorce. The biggest allegation from the divorce filing is that Sherri abandoned a child that she planned via surrogate with her soon to be ex, Lamar Sally. Shepherd has denied the allegations but now the surrogate is speaking out to Inside Edition.
‘I just don’t understand how she can act like this baby is nonexistent. It just blows my mind,” Jessica Bartholomew was the surrogate for Sherri and Lamar’s child. The baby was conceived through Lamar’s sperm and a donated egg. So if you really want to get technical, it’s not Sherri’s baby.
Bartholomew says because Sherri refused to sign the birth certificate she had to sign as the “noncustodial parent” and she now claims to have a child support case against her in California. Bartholomew claims that in the beginning Sherri was excited about the pregnancy. “She would call up and check on me during the pregnancy in the beginning. At the 20 week appointment, she seemed very excited. She was going to see the baby for the first time…I didn’t see any warning signs right away.”
We haven’t heard too much from Sherri about the baby. The divorce proceedings will most likely bring out the all the ridiculousness of this case.
