Lamar Sally demands sole custody of surrogate baby due in July

Texas residents who are interested in the lives of high-profile couples may be interested in the demands of Lamar Sally, who recently filed for separation from Sherri Shepherd. They were married in 2011, and because Sally has not been a resident in the state where they live for more than six months, he is not allowed to file for divorce for another three months. This separation does not promise to be amicable, and it may result in a fierce fight for sole custody of their unborn child.
