As a result, the entertainer recently asked a Georgia judge to seal the entire case. According to Radar Online, Christopher Bridges claimed he’s been “publicly humiliated” and the nasty debacle is ruining his reputation.

“Because the media is able to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file in this case, every day since Jan. 1, 2014, I have been publicaly humiliated and called a deadbeat dad, who does not want to see or support his minor child. Nothing could be further from the truth,” he told the court.

He went on to reference a story titled “Ludacris Baby Mama – You Treat Our Kid Worse Than a Dog.” “The news articles… say very negative things. I would hate for out daughter to ever see the blogs that have nothing good to say about either of her parents,” he added.

“In the event that an ex parte Order is not granted, and people are able to continue to read and misinterpret the documents in the Court’s file, my name, reputation, character, goodwill and brand will continue to suffer irreversible harm and damage, which may eventually jeopardize my earning potential,” he stated.

Fuller gave birth to Luda’s daughter in December 2013. The rapper insisted the child was conceived while “on a break” from girlfriend Eudoxie Agnan.
