Now that Sherri Shepherd’s husband, Lamar Sally, has filed for divorce, new details about their split continue to emerge. New reports claim that ‘The View’ host kept her failing relationship from everyone, including her co-hosts.
Sherri Shepherd, 47, was so embarrassed by her failing marriage that she kept it a secret for as long as she could — especially her The View co-stars.
Sherri Shepherd Hid Marriage Troubles
It has not been a good week for Sherri.
On May 2, her husband of just over two years, Lamar Sally, filed for divorce from The View host. The news shocked everyone — especially those she worked closely with on a daily basis.
“Everyone is in shock,” a source close to the split told Us Weekly. “He stopped coming around. She really kept everything quiet.”
Wow. If no one around them saw this coming, Sherri and Lamar did a damn good job of keeping their failing relationship from everyone.
Sherri and Lamar wed in Aug. 2011, and are expecting a baby together through a surrogate in Aug. 2014.
Lamar Wants Custody Of Their Unborn Baby
Since Lamar has filed for divorce, things have quickly gotten ugly between him and his estranged wife.
In his divorce request, he also demanded full custody of their unborn baby, including full child support from Sherri.
“The baby is not something she was ready to discuss at all,” the source explained. “She had to have known things weren’t going well with Sal so didn’t want to say anything.”
We truly hope that Sherri and her estranged husband, Lamar, can work together to co-parent their unborn baby.
