John Sally Calls Out Sherri Shepherd Over Their Surrogate Son

Remember when we told you that Sherri Shepherd abandoned the surrogate son she had with her now estranged husband?

Well her ex Lamar Sally is still steaming mad about it, and he’s calling her out in a new interview.

According to John even after he and Sherri agreed on a surrogate who matched Sherri’s facial characteristics, she abruptly changed her mind and hasn’t looked back since.

Page Six reports:

Asks Sally, “What good Christian woman would abandon a child?

“He’s such a good kid. He wants love and I’m scared: Am I giving him enough? Am I enough for both parents?”

LJ’s mother — Sally’s ex-wife, “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd — has never met the boy, who was conceived via a donor egg and carried by a surrogate, both of which Shepherd pursued and paid for. When the surrogate was five months along, Shepherd broke up with her husband of nearly three years, saying she no longer wanted to be a mother.


Though Sally reports that she first told him she would pay child support, Shepherd later went to court hoping to exempt herself from any legal — and financial — connection to her son. The court ruled against her, and following a denied appeal two weeks ago, she must continue to pay $4,100 in monthly child support.

Says Sally, “I had my lawyer ask Sherri to put LJ on her insurance. She said no. I couldn’t believe she was that cold.”

Broke and unemployed, he had no choice but to apply for state aid in California. But things took a wrong turn when the mother listed on LJ’s birth certificate — the surrogate — was sued by the state for child support.

“I waited 40 years until I found someone. I wanted to do it right,” Sally adds. “[Sherri] put me through pure hell. I didn’t want to be a single father. I didn’t want my son to not know his mother’s touch.”

Damn Sherri!

What do YOU think about her ongoing issues over her surrogate son??? Is it right for her to pay child support???
