Tamika Fuller (2013–2014)
Ludacris and Tamika Fuller had a complicated relationship that involved a pregnancy, a custody battle, and public accusations. Fuller and Ludacris knew each other for years before they started dating in the spring of 2013 when the rapper was on a break with his then-girlfriend and now-wife, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue. However, Ludacris was still in a relationship with Mbouguiengue when Fuller got pregnant. Ludacris also has another daughter, Karma Bridges, from a previous relationship with an attorney named Christine White.
When Fuller got pregnant, Ludacris reportedly went into “damage control mode” to save his long-term relationship with Mbouguiengue. However, Fuller filed a paternity lawsuit in 2014, and Ludacris admitted that he was the father of her child, Cai Bella Bridges. The custody battle over Cai was highly publicized, with Fuller accusing Ludacris of bribing her to get an abortion and only marrying Mbouguiengue to avoid paying child support. Despite Fuller’s accusations, Ludacris was awarded primary custody of Cai in 2015.
