Sherri Shepherd’s husband Lamar Sally filed for divorce on May 2nd. In addition he has filed for full legal and physical custody of the couple’s unborn baby. They are expecting that baby via a surrogate mother. Sally is also seeking spousal support as well as to limit Sherri Shepherd’s visitation rights with their child once the baby is born. The View cohost married Lamar Sally back in August of 2011 in her hometown of Chicago.
There are conflicting reports about this split, with some making Sally sound like the bad guy while others claim Sherri Shepherd kicked him out of their home because he hadn’t reached the level of career success he had promised her he would attain.
“Their whole relationship was built on a fraud and it’s finally over,” a source says. “She’s thrown him out of the house and he’s tried to speak with her, but nothing is happening.”
Although Sherri Shepherd has yet to comment on the impending divorce, Sally indicates via Twitter that he appreciates all the support he has received.
Just want to say thanks to all my true friends who have reached out to me via text, Facebook and Twitter. I love each and every one of you!

Shepherd has an 8-year-old son named Jeffrey from her marriage to Jeff Tarpley. Lamar Sally has reportedly served as a father figure for the boy.
“I was great with Jeffrey,” Sally said in a recent interview, adding that he missed the child. “He was in my life for four years.”
Sherri Shepherd was married to Jeff Tarpley for nine years. She divorced him when she learned he had cheated on her with another woman and that the woman was expecting Tarpley’s baby.
Shepherd shared an Instagram video of herself with son Jeffrey single gospel music.
Shepherd has been part of The View since 2005. She cohosts the show along with Barbara Walters, Jenny McCarthy, and Whoopi Goldberg.
So what do you suppose is the real scoop behind Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally’s impending divorce? Do you think she tired of him and his lack of career success or do you think there’s more to the story? Might it be possible for Lamar Sally to gain full custody of this baby they are expecting?
