“The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd has filed for divorce in New Jersey earlier this week, just a few days after Lamar Sally filed for legal separation in California. Shepherd didi not disclose any specific reason in the court docs.
And unlike her estranged hubby, she did not specify anything related to custody of her and Sally’s unborn child, which they are having via surrogacy. He requested full custody of their baby and only wants his wife to have visitation rights.
However, Shepherd, 47, did say she wanted her prenup enforced, which Sally wanted invalidated based on “fraud.” TMZ reports that the prenup specifies that he receive only $60,000 if the marriage lasts between two and five years. The couple have been married for three years.
While Shepherd is getting her legal ducks in a row, Sally has spoken out about his split with his wife. He told People that he has lost “freakin’ 50 pounds” since calling it quits with the talk show host.
He also seems to want people to know about his weight loss, saying, “Use a slim picture. Not the fat one from six months ago. … I’m on the divorce diet.”
Sally did not give further comment on his split from Shepherd, but said, “I’m happy to be a father.”
Sounds bizarre, but it’s apparent that the former couple are divorcing quietly without a fuss.
