Court upholds surrogacy contract
A Pennsylvania appeals court has declared Sherri Shepherd legally responsible for a child born to a surrogate before she and her ex-husband divorced.
The actress has tried to have the surrogacy contract voided.
A lawyer for ex-husband Lamar Sally believes the ruling Monday means Shepherd must continue paying $4,100-a-month in child support. Sally is raising the 1-year-old boy in Los Angeles.
Court papers show Shepherd paid more than $100,000 for a suburban Philadelphia surrogate and supported the pregnancy until she changed her mind as her marriage faltered.
John Stamos receives probation
John Stamos was sentenced to three years of probation Tuesday after he pleaded no contest to driving under the influence of a drug earlier this year.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey also ordered Stamos to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and a counseling session as part of his sentence in the misdemeanor case.
Blair Berk, an attorney for the Full House star, entered the plea Tuesday on Stamos’ behalf. Berk and Stamos’ publicist Matt Polk declined comment after the hearing.
The 52-year-old actor was briefly hospitalized in June after Beverly Hills, Calif., police arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence. Police have not identified the substance they suspect Stamos had taken, and it was not addressed in court.
