The line from Ludacris’ 2004 hit single pretty much sums up how the “Fast and Furious” actor is feeling right about now.
Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, is currently wrapped up in a custody battle with his former flame Tamika Fuller, and he is requesting that the judge seal the entire case.
According to Ludacris, his reputation is being ruined and court documents are being misinterpreted by the media.
“Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the court’s file in this case, every day since Jan. 1, 2014, I have been publicly humiliated and called a deadbeat dad, who does not want to see or support his minor child,” Ludacris told the court. “Nothing could be further from the truth.”
One story he referenced was headlined, “Ludacris Baby Mama – You Treat Our Kid Worse Than a Dog.”
He said he did not want his daughter to see such media postings and believe that her father didn’t love her.
“The news articles… say very negative things,” he said. “I would hate for our daughter to ever see the blogs that have nothing good to say about either of her parents.”
While he mentioned the well-being of his daughter, he was still focused primarily on his ability to make money.
“In the event that an ex parte order is not granted, and people are able to continue to read and misinterpret the documents in the court’s file, my name, reputation, character, goodwill and brand will continue to suffer irreversible harm and damage, which may eventually jeopardize my earning potential,” he added.
The custody battle began back January.
In December news broke that Fuller gave birth to Ludacris’ daughter while he was on an alleged “break” from his girlfriend Eudoxie Agnan.
