Top Chef Host Padma Lakshmi’s Baby Daddy Fighting For Custody

NoahFairbanks.com

According To The NYPost:

Adam Dell has gone to court to fight Padma Lakshmi for custody of their 11- month-old baby, Krishna, with sources claiming he now gets just seven hours with his daughter a week.
Dell, 41, brother of billionaire Dell Inc. founder Michael Dell, last night filed a suit in Manhattan Supreme Court asking for full custody of Krishna, born last Feb. 20. Venture capitalist Dell is frustrated the “Top Chef” host, 40, has allegedly failed to respond to his pleas for more time with Krishna.
His lawyer, Bill Zabel, confirmed the filing and told us in a statement: “Adam Dell, above all else, wants to have an active and substantial role in the upbringing of his daughter with Padma Lakshmi. Unfortunately, Ms. Lakshmi has severely limited his time with their daughter and has refused to negotiate a reasonable co-parenting agreement. Mr. Dell has tried his best to avoid going to court, but Ms. Lakshmi has given him no other choice at this time.”

Sources say Lakshmi and Dell currently have an agreement which allows him to see their baby for seven hours a week. But it’s complicated by Lakshmi’s filming and travel commitments. Dell had to fly to the Bahamas this month to spend a few hours with Krishna. “He has to fit into her schedule,” the source added.
Sources close to Dell said he must deal with her lawyers and her assistant to arrange times to see Krishna. One source said, “Adam does not want to take the baby away from her. He hopes this will result in a reasonable co-parenting agreement.” Dell is also said to be seeking to be named on Krishna’s birth certificate and have her take his surname along with Lakshmi’s.
Lakshmi, ex-wife of Salman Rushdie, and Dell dated briefly in 2009, but she’s remained with IMG owner Teddy Forstmann. Many believed Forstmann was the dad, but Page Six revealed it was Dell last January.
