Sherri Shepherd’s Ex Seeks More Child Support – Mathew Knowles on Secretly Dating White Girls in the 1960’s

*Sherri Shepherd’s ex-husband wants her to up his child support payments because he’s been given a lot more time with their son.

Sherri and Jeff Tarpley were married from 2001-2010. As The Blast first reported, Tarpley, filed docs last year in their longstanding custody war seeking 50/50 custody of their 12-year-old son, Jeffrey.

According to new documents, Tarpley scored revised custody arrangements following a ruling in December that went previously unreported. He now has custody of Jeffrey every 1st, 3rd and 5th weekends of the month, every Tuesday and Thursday, and other times when Shepherd is out of town.

Per their initial agreement, Shepherd was paying $131 a month in child support, but Tarpley wants more, pointing out her income of $1.2 million a year compared to his $2,400 a month earnings.

Tarpley is also asking for $25,608.40 for attorney’s fees.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled for May.

Mathew Knowles opened up to VladTV about his new book, “Racism from the Eyes of a Child,” which he hopes sparks a dialogue about colorism.

During the conversation, Mathew spoke about his experiences with racism while growing up in Alabama in the 1950s. He explained how his junior high school principal once scolded him because Knowles secretly dated white girls.

Moving on to college, Knowles also revealed that he was benched from the basketball team after it was discovered he was dating a white woman, and then going to Fisk, an all-black school that had a “brown paper bag test.”
