The Sherri Shepherd Divorce

This Sherri Shepherd divorce is turning into one great divorce. I'm actually hoping this goes to trial and they don't settle everything quietly because it has potential to be really juicy. According to The NY Daily News, Sherri and her husband are expecting a baby via a surrogate and he has filed for sole custody and only wants Sherri to be able to visit. That in of itself is unusual. The fact that he also filed for divorce using fraud as the basis makes this really good too. I'm wondering what she failed to tell him prior to them getting married. Remember, they didn't know each other very long before they got married. She basically went from one marriage to the next. Plus, he is filing for spousal support so we will also find out how much she is pulling down from The View and her other income streams. I wonder if she is making more or less than everyone else on the show. No one close to Sherri even knew she was having marriage problems.

Halle situation I am guessing. Not her eggs. Ugly days are here again.

sandybrook said...

just a guess--she's gay and doesn't like having sex with men? (so she was married before so was TommyGirl)

This is the woman who thought the world is flat.

audrey said...

I think we now know why they are getting divorced. He is looking for a meal ticket....and Sherri is tired of supporting the lump on her sofa. I do believe she filed fraud charges first, and he counter sued for the same. Ugly mess to bring a baby into.

Morning everyone! I've never understood how fraud can be a basis for divorce. Non disclosure, but fraud? I thought you didn't need to Have a reason to get divorced. Is it necessary for support issues?

digal704 said...

She had been divorced a while before they got married. I think she just wanted to be married.He sounded suspect before the marriage. Can't imagine what the fraud is though. I'm sure we'll find out.

morning steamy

sugarbread maker said...

You have to state a reason for divorce. Fraud irreconcilable differences would make it seem peaceful. She went with fraud to set the tone and get the upper hand in the divorce

Steampunk Jazz said...

Happy dance!
Hi sandy :-D

Steampunk Jazz said...

It would have been cheaper to hire a private detective to investigate someone Before the marriage, then to find stuff out after...

sandybrook said...

did we ever find out what Renee Zellweger was accusing Kenny Chesney of being fraudulent about or did we just guess he wasn't a ladies man?

Erin B said...

Because those gays really ruin marriage for those twice-divorced, huh?

PJ said...

Oh sh*t. I immediately suspected that they weren't using Sherri's eggs due to her age and all of the severe health problems she's admitting to having in the past in regards to dozens of prior in vitro attempts/miscarriages/and her incredibly difficult pregnancy with her son Jeffrey-but I never thought for a second that this is what the fraud charges could be about! Makes total sense then that "no one knew they were having marriage problems." Maybe it's because they WEREN'T at all until she pulled a Halle. (Going through the process of finding/using a surrogate isn't quick or easy so why do it of your marriage was crumbling?) This could also be why Sal wants full custody. The law really needs to catch up to reproductive science. Imagine if a MAN decided to pull a sperm switcheroo on his wife w/in viro w/o telling her?! He'd immediately rnd up publically crucified or in jail. (Which may be an appropriate punishment for anyone crazy enough to carry such a thing out in secret.) Dispicable.

Shelly Shell said...

She can't have kids due to the fact she had soooo many abortions she doesn't even know how many. I don't feel any sympathy for her.

TalksTooMuch said...

Is there such a thing as a "great divorce"? Too bad, I haven't watched her on The View but I really liked her in Beauty Shop

surfer said...

I think it's a little presumptuous of everyone to assume this supposed "fraud" has to do with the coming baby.

What better way to get attention (on his part) than by claiming fraud?

auntliddy said...

He doest work. No income. He gets the baby, and proves he's father figure to her son, boom! He's collecting checks for life. Scammer I think.

Erin B said...

I read somewhere else she is claiming fraud because he said he was a big screenwriter but turned out to not have a job or any prospects. If it was that important to her, she should have checked that out beforehand. She's in the industry. I wouldn't think it would be hard to find out. At least go to imdb for fuck's sake!

Shelly Shell said...

She was stupid to think he was a big time writter, one look at his IMDB page will show you that.

Seven of Eleven said...

I read somewhere that fraud is the most commonly used basis for divorces and annulments (Montana, can you confirm?), and the one most likely to get you the financial and other means (custody) that you're seeking.

If he filed with fraud charges, I'm sure it's because she made him believe there was activity in her cranium.

Countess Eden said...

The truth never surfaced from Kenny/Renee. I see him all the time. He's a wee little man, bald and wears glasses in public. I've never seen a fan recognize him out in restaurants. I see him with his girlfriend or his manager if it's daytime. He Ike's salmon. Eats it almost everyday. He's an average chap.

smn1985 said...

For an alleged lawyer enty sure knows nothing about the law.

He didn't file for divorce on the basis of fraud, he used boring old irreconcilable differences. He is trying to get out of the PRENUP on the basis of fraud, which sadly for us gossips is pretty boring-usually it's just something like "she didn't disclose all her assets to me" or "she told me I was signing something else." Basically you just raise what you can to get out of a binding contract, but it has nothing to do with the marriage itself. Last ditch effort to put the prenup in question.

Missyrocks53 said...

She was divorced a while. Think she wanted to get married, and it's all on him for wanting to be like a housewife. Maybe they agreed to that but dude is out for big bucks. Hired shark for a lawyer,and he's establishing CA residency to try to get the most favorable settlement. She hasn't worn a wedding ring for a long time- always made me think there were problems. So weird because she is without her son all week working, although guess jenny is doing that now as well. Sounds like they're trying a baby to save a marriage- you know she says how Christian she is now. Sorry for that baby. They're like 50, aren't they? Old for babies.

MISCH said...

There is a pre-nup in place…I hope he gets nothing the fraud is on his part…he never worked

Sarah said...

My thoughts precisely. He's mad that Sherri expected him to get a job and pull in some income as well, he was fine living off hers.

QueenAnne Guido said...

Popcorn worthy. Isn't there a trailer park these two could move to? Would make for super fun reality t.v.

Freya said...

She got married at the time when news outlets were constantly reporting about the "single black woman" epidemic. She hosted one of the shows. I think she got married because she didn't want to be single anymore, not for love. Never been a fan of hers. Her standup comedy is not funny either.

Sunshine said...

This sounds like a case for Judge Mathis.

B626 said...

I know in vitro and surrogacy helps alot of couples but hearing stories like these makes me want to shut them all down.

__-__=__ said...

Like SusanB used to say - always do a background check.

FS said...

Isnt he rumoured to be cheating on her? They live in NY they better not bring that mess to CA.

Chief2224 said...

Speaking of divorce (OK, maybe not but it *is* some marriage/in-law drama), has anybody seen this insane footage of Solange attacking Jay-Z in an elevator, while Bey stands by? It's crazy!

Judging by how everyone is just so chill about this (except Solange, of course) I'm guessing she causes drama a lot?

Pink_Palace said...

Hmmm, this happens on Baba Wawa's last week on the View, interesting! WTG Sherry, steal her thunder!!

Sherry said...

Thanks for the link Chief2224. Too bad it had TMZ stamped on it because it made it hard to see anyone besides Jay and Solange..Not your fault or complaining. It was still a good video! Things that make you go hmmm...

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Fraud because he thought she was actually a dude. (He was hoping anyway)

Topper Madison said...

Fraud is just a legal term, in an attempt to devalue the marriage contract--either to challenge a prenup (if they weren't honestly married, how could a prenup apply?) or to just effectively annul the damn thing. It doesn't necessarily mean there was dishonestly involved--usually just stupidity.

Chief2224 said...

@Sherry, no worries! The TMZ thing was *really* annoying. I didn't even notice Beyonce at first because she was in the corner and partially covered by the TMZ. I *really* wish the video came with sound. I'll bet that was quite a conversation to hear!

KL said...

I'll bet that he wants to invalidate the pre-nup so that he can get paid. What job has he done in the 3 years they've been married. I think he worked on her sitcom but that's it.

I feel badly for her. I'm not a fan and she's not too bright, but nobody deserves to be publicly humiliated and used for money like this.

She seems like the kind of girl who wanted a husband and baby so bad that she'd be willing to do anything. Looks like it's biting her in the ass!
