'Jersey Shore' Star Is a New Dad -- and in a Fight Over Custody TMZ
One of the stars of MTV's "Jersey Shore" recently became a dad -- and he's already in a fight with his baby's mother over custody, reports TMZ.com.
Pauly DelVecchio, also known as Pauly D, has filed court documents seeking some sort of custody of his daughter, although the level is unclear. He hasn't yet seen his daughter, who was born in May, the piece reports.
The child's mother is reportedly demanding child support. While DelVecchio is said to be ready to take care of the child financially, he's reportedly concerned that the girl is being treated "like a winning lottery ticket," TMZ notes. The baby's mother recently posted a photo of the girl in a high chair covered with $100 bills, the story adds.
The report notes: "Sources connected to the baby mama and baby daddy tell TMZ ... Pauly doesn't think the woman is a fit mother -- he points to the fact that she once worked at Hooters. He's also concerned because the woman, who's only 25 years old, has another kid."
The baby's mother, who reportedly goes by Amanda, has also filed court documents in the case, TMZ notes.
The report adds: "As for how they hooked up, we're told it was one drunken night in Vegas ... but the kid isn't bringing them any closer. In fact, one source tells us they straight up hate each other."
