Ludacris granted full custody of daughter

29 January 2015, 08:50

Ludacris has won primary custody of his 13-month-old daughter, Cai.

The 37-year-old star, real name Chris Bridges, is grateful that a judge decided he was ''the most fit and proper parent'' to care for the child on Monday following a long court battle with his ex-girlfriend Tamika Fuller.

In a statement to PEOPLE.com, the 'Furious 7' actor said: ''After review of all the evidence, the testimony of the witnesses, the report of the guardian ad litem, and the claims made throughout this entire case, I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter.''

Sources close to Tamika recently accused the rapper, who also has daughter Karma, 13, from a previous relationship, of only proposing to and marrying his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue on the same day last month in a bid to show the Georgia court presiding over their custody case that he could provide a more stable home environment than her.

An insider also suggested he only wanted custody of Cai so he could avoid paying Tamika $7,000 in child support every month.

The little girl was born while Eudoxie and the '2 Fast 2 Furious' star were on a break and sources revealed early last year that she decided to stand by him as she was eager to settle down.
