The happy image of Padma and child may be at odds with the custody battle surrounding the 11-month-old Krishna. Per Page Six, baby daddy Adam Dell is suing Padma Lakshmi for custody of their baby, whom he reportedly only gets to see for about seven hours per week.
It’s a typical custody fight: Dell is accusing Lakshmi of severely limiting his time with the baby. These types of legal battles are never pretty. One can only hope for the child’s sake that it’s resolved quickly. But it doesn’t look good. A rep for Lakshmi told the Post: “It appears to us that Mr. Dell remains more interested in garnering media attention than working out details to see Krishna or in her welfare.” Sigh. Poor Krishna.
