Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband Lamar Sally have been battling in courts for months over whether she is legally the mother of a baby boy born via surrogate. A judge has now ruled she is the mother and her name will go on the birth certificate.
Sherri has argued since splitting with Lamar back in 2014 that he tricked her into having the baby to get money so she had no obligation to the boy. The judge has now put Sherri on the hook as the legal mother clearing the way for Lamar to get child support.
Bobbi Kristina Brown is now out of a medically-induced coma and breathing on her own but she has suffered “irreversible brain damage,” says her grandmother Cissy Houston. The only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has been in the news in the past few days after her father told a concert crowd that she was “awake” and “watching” him.
Cissy then told the media that was not true, telling People in a statement:
“I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive. Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers.”
