Sherri Shepherd Must Pay Child Support, and why?

Sherri and Lamar’s baby was born by using Sally’s sperm and a donor egg. Meanwhile, Shepherd does not have a genetic connection to the boy.

In November 2015, a judge in the Pennsylvania court of appeals ruled in favor of upholding a prior decision that Sherri Shepherd pay child support. As Sherri’s name would remain on Lamar Jr.’s birth certificate.

However, Shepherd had requested her name be removed from her child’s birth certificate. During the hearing, it was ruled that the former The View co-host must pay $4,100 in financial support each month but later sally filed a modification of child support because Shepherd earns $3 million per year. Then, the amount is increased by $1.8 million from what their previous support order was based upon.
