Former 'The View' Co-Host Caught Up in Ongoing Legal Drama, Report Claims

The battle just keeps getting messier.

Sherri Shepherd and her ex-husband are going at it again. On Saturday, The Blast reported that The View co-host’s ex, Jeff Tarpley, is asking for more child support after receiving more custody of their son, Jeffrey, late last year. The site reported that the increased custody came after a December ruling that previously went unreported.
According to documents the outlet obtained, Tarpley believes he’s entitled to more child support because he claims to have had custody of their 12-year-old on the first, third, and fifth weekends of every month, as well as every Thursday and Tuesday.

The docs also point at Tarpley ha]ving custody whenever Sherri was out of town. According to the legal papers, Jeff is looking for more than the monthly $131 he’s receiving from his former flame, since her income is much higher than his.
He is also requesting $25,608.40 in attorney’s fees.

The Blast previously reported that Shepherd’s ex filed documents last year to received 50/50 custody of Jeffrey.

In 2011, Sherri was awarded primary custody of their son, while Jeff was only allowed visitation. In 2014, her ex petitioned for temporary physical custody, but a judge ruled against his request. Sherri and Jeff were married for nine years, from 2001 to 2010. A hearing regarding Jeff’s demand for increased child support is scheduled to be held in May.
