It is never a good thing when any celebrity is under investigation by the Department of Family & Children Services, better known as DFCS (infamously pronounced “dee-fax”)! Apparently, rapper and actor, Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges is under investigation for child abuse after a complaint was filed against him. The rapper has accused his child’s mother of filing a false complaint against him in retaliation for him being awarded full custody of their daughter in 2015.
As you recall, Tamika Fuller, the child’s mother lost primary custody of their daughter after a nasty and lengthy court battle. She even alleges that Luda wanted to pay her $10K to abort the child upon learning she was pregnant! Thanks to The Jasmine Brand we have the latest information on the case:

Here’s the latest: Then on July 6th, Ludacris headed to court and filed an application for contempt and request for a restraining order and sanctions against Tamika. The rapper explains since the judge came back with his order in early 2015, Tamika has attempted to ignore the order and usurp his custodial rights by making decisions for their minor child, which she has no authority to do. He says he has tried to work out the issues but Tamika refused to follow the court order.
Ludacris points out that Tamika continuously drops off their child at daycare on Fridays – when he decided to have private tutoring for their child on Fridays. He claims that she keeps disregarding the doctor he choose and going to other physicians and violating the order by taking unscheduled and unannounced visitation time at the daycare even when asked by the staff not to come. Luda says that she has leaked private emails to the media for her own publicity and to portray Ludacris in a false, negative light and even choose to start a GoFundMe account in an attempt to profit off their child, which was against the court order.
He accuses his baby mama of sending pictures of their kid to gossip sites and even penned an ‘essay’ which was rife with false criticisms of the court and Luda.
The last straw came when Luda says Tamika contacted the Department of Family and Children Services and filed a false report against him based on their kid having a common rash. He says she was informed by Luda that a doctor had already seen the rash and she was prescribed an ointment.
Luda claims that on May 19th 2016, the department contacted him and said pursuant to department protocol, his parenting time with his kid was suspended. He says his baby mama must be stopped from filing false and malicious reports of child abuse.
He is demanding the court order Tamika to follow the original order, find her in contempt of court and sanctioned for her actions along with order her to pay attorney fees and litigation expenses.
One of the writers on staff works is also a social worker and works for DFCS. He explains that just because there is an allegation of child abuse made nothing will be done unless there is evidence, imminent danger, or immediate danger to the child. By policy, any allegation, true or false, reported to the Department must be investigated by Child Protective Services (CPS), the branch of the DFCS that acts as first contact for these situations. We hope this is all untrue, and since people who report these complaints can remain anonymous we doubt we will find out who sent it. We will, however, keep you posted.
