    Sherry Shepherd entered into a contractual agreement to have a surrogate have a child for her. She is currently fighting maternity in court. Is this right? Should she be forced to pay child support?

    Not in my opinion, the other woman violated the contract and should not be paid for it, and also be punished for it

    Here is more information on this for those that are not privy to it:

    Sherri Shepherd's Surrogate: Sherri Acts Like the Baby is Non-Existent

    According to Jessica, after being matched up with the celebrity couple through an agency, she claims to have signed a 23-page contract with Lamar and Sherri on Sept. 12, 2013, but she says she didn't first meet Sherri until the embryo was transferred into her uterus in November 2013. An egg donor (said to be "African-American, tall and athletic") was reportedly used.

    Jessica tells the news source that during her pregnancy Sherri only called her two or three times to see how she was doing and what she was eating. Sherri did, however, show up for an important ultrasound 20 weeks into the pregnancy, according to Jessica.

    NEWS: Inside Sherri Shepherd's Bitter Custody Battle

    It was soon after the ultrasound that Jessica says Sherri wanted nothing to do with the baby. Lamar reportedly informed Jessica that the couple was splitting up. Indeed, the couple filed for legal separation in May 2014 and noted that a baby born via surrogacy with an expectant due day of July.

    Because there was no other mother present at the birth, Jessica's name was put on the birth certificate.

    "I do get medical bills for [the baby]," Jessica says. "I am now listed as a non-custodial parent in California. I have a child support case coming against me."

    Lamar Sally Says Court Battle with Sherri Shepherd over Surrogacy Is 'Heartbreaking'

    Sherri Shepherd will have to wait a little longer to see if a judge declares her to be the mother of a baby boy born to a surrogate last August.

    On Wednesday, a Pennsylvania judge continued the hearing to determine who should be the mother of the child – Shepherd, the surrogate or the egg donor – until April 21. While court proceedings were closed, PEOPLE has learned Shepherd has yet to testify. Despite that, the former View host's second husband Lamar Sally claims his ex-wife does not want to be a parent to the now 7-month-old child they agreed to have via surrogate before their 2014 split.

    Sherri Shepherd Thanks Friends Amid Legal Battle Over Baby Born to Surrogate Hired by Her and Estranged Husband

    Mar. 13, 2015

    Sherri Shepherd
    took to Twitter recently to thank several friends for their support, soon after she attended a court hearing over a legal case involving a baby born to a surrogate mother she and her husband had hired before their split last year.

    The child, a boy named Lamar Sally Jr., was born in August was put in Sally's custody. He says Shepherd, 47, wants no parental responsibility for the child. She has not commented. He filed for divorce in May 2014 and had requested that she have visitation rights. He also wants Shepherd's name to be put on the baby's birth certificate. It currently lists the surrogate, Jessica Bartholomew, as the mother and this has led to some legal issues for her as well.

    The three attended a court hearing on Wednesday. Lamar told Inside Edition that Shepherd refused to make eye contact with him or their surrogate. Shepherd has not commented publicly about the hearing.

    How did the other woman violate? Basically, Shepherd tried to get out of the deal half way thru, when her marriage failed.

    She should be held responsible. How you gone sign some paperwork, knowing you and the husband are hitting a rough patch? If she hadn't signed the paperwork, I would be like oh well. If I was the surrogate, I would be suing the ish out of her.
