Padma Lakshmi Custody Battle

January 27, 2011

A custody battle is heating up between Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi and baby daddy Adam Dell. The mudslinging has begun and it is going to be one nasty fight which you can learn all about below as well as check out some pictures and a video of the lovely Padma.

It was a secret she kept private for a long time but venture capitalist Adam Dell claims a paternity test proves he is the father of Padma Lakshmi’s 11 month old daughter and he has started what will no doubt be a bitter custody battle. The New York Post originally broke the story that Dell has brought a lawsuit against Lakshmi in regards to the little girl.

The lawsuit basically accuses Padma of putting her career and life style ahead of the needs of the young girl. Basically Adam is saying she travels too much and won’t adjust her career or social obligations to meet the needs of their daughter. A lawyer for Padma of course calls these accusations untrue and inaccurate. Furthermore a rep for the brunette beauty gave a lengthy statement blasting the media for covering Adam’s ridiculous claims and insists that Lakshmi’s only interest is working out a fair agreement that will be best for her daughter. Oh and of course she wants to keep it all quiet and out of the media’s eye, good luck with that cause your baby daddy seems to have a really big mouth.

Padma Lakshmi finds herself in the middle of not only a very public custody battle with the father of her only child but a very nasty one as well. There does not seem to be an end in sight but I for one hope that she and Adam Dell both remember that there is an innocent little girl at the middle of this fight.

This is one hot and juicy topic so let me hear what you think about it.
