Sherri Shepherd Divorce Drama Gets Real

sherri shepherd

Trying hard to keep a smile on her face for the cameras of her daytime talk show The View, television personality Sherri Shepherd is in the throes of real divorce drama. Shepherd’s estranged husband and ex-husband are bringing to light real allegations that gets things all the more complicated and embarrassing for the star.

According to reports, Sherri Shepherd’s current husband is not the only one making inflammatory remarks about the television star. It appears that Shepherd’s former husband Jeff Tarpley is now exposing the daytime chatter box’s mothering skills. According to court documents filed last month in Los Angeles, Tarpley is seeking full custody of the couple’s nine-year-old son Jeffrey jr. Having been divorced since 2011, Jeff Tarpley claims in court documents that due to Shepherd’s busy schedule as a television host and touring stand-up comedienne, little Jeffrey, who has special needs, has been suffering from neglect, is falling behind in school, suffers poor hygiene, and is reading below grade level. Tarpley accuses Shepherd of leaving the minor in the care of “unfit nannies” while the star works seven days a week. The father also says the boy wears velcro shoes because the nine-year-old has not learned how to tie his own shoes. Sherri Shepherd is countering Tarpley’s claims calling her ex-husband an absentee father and not capable of raising their son. A hearing has been set for July 21 to address Jeff Tarpley’s claims.

If these allegations are found to be valid, it could prove real damaging for Sherri Shepherd as her current husband Lamar Sally moves towards legal separation  from the busy working mother. In his court papers, Sally is seeking full custody of the couple’s unborn child due this summer via surrogate with “reasonable” visitation offered to Shepherd. If the drama as outlined by Tarpley is proven to be fact, Sally gets motion for full custody of the infant in family law and could be entitled to spousal and child support and a significant cut of the star’s reported $10 million net worth. Beating Sally to the punch, Shepherd topped her estranged husbands motion for separation with her own filing for actual divorce.

According to newly revealed court papers, Lamar Sally has outlined very explicit expectations to be adhered to during their marriage. According to documents obtained by the media, Sally was allegedly seeking to implement amendments to the couple’s prenuptial agreement that would include a “fat” clause forbidding Shepherd to gain excessive weight during their marriage as well as a stipulation to ensure that Shepherd “submit” to her husband as a way of honoring God. According to reports, Sherri Shepherd refused to sign any such proposed amendment to their prenup. As more light continues to be shed on this issue, it has been revealed by sources that Shepherd suspected Sally of having an extra-marital affair.

Since the bombshell news of Sherri Shepherd’s divorce drama, the star has been ever so silent about sharing her problems at the round table of The View. The unflattering news swirled in the midst of  The View creator and television icon Barbara Walters making her grand exit from the airwaves. Insiders at The View say that Shepherd has been getting moral support behind the scenes from her co-workers and in spite of going through a real personal crisis, Shepherd did not want to have her bad news trump the celebratory vibe of her television boss’s retirement.

    It’s sad she always had good things to say about Sal, I feel he was in it for the money, just like her first husband. They are both sorry low- life’s.And they will reap what they sow. Prayer is the key.

    I wonder has this or will this affect her close friendship with Neicy Nash(I hope I spelled her name right). Because she has often mentioned on the View that it was Neicy who set her up with Sal. Will her private matters be on their table of hot topics like all the other celebrity’s private drama. Although I don’t know Miss Shepherd personally I believe she is a good mother and it is truly sad that her son’s father would make these despicable accusations against her. I believe we all go through things for a reason and this is her test of strength and Faith. She will prevail and in the end they will be the ones looking like fools. Keep your head up Miss Shepherd. Stay STRONG.

    I don’t watch the view because they always talk too much over their guess. I am sorry about Sherri divorce situation. How long did she know this guy before she married him? Sometimes it take 9 or 10 months to know someone because during the early months, you are seeing their best side.

    Sherri always talks too much, including constantly interrupting guests. Last we heard Sally was the love of her life. I get so tired of hearing her constant chattering. I think she likes to hear herself talk. Sherri, you are NOT an authority on everything.

    I like Sherri but she should have taken a page from the silent note, talks a little to much sometimes. I know she has her own mind but she could stand to take a few lesson from Whoopi. who very seldom talks about her man only when necessary. too much bragging and praising men is never good,I knew that man was no good for her when she said he like porn movies all I could see was him hitting on a little chicken, or waiting on chance to sneak out . I wish I knew you personal because I would have said he is not the one. Just wanted a little spot light and in the future stop bragging on your man all the time leave your man at home and talk about him with your friends , he looked like a real opportunist being at your job when he should have been somewhere else, just wasn’t a good look seeing him at your job so much. But I will pray for you and you will win these battle, and also stop walking so hard throwing your body it makes you look desperate or like you trying to prove something ok. We love you Sherri and God will see you through this.
