Pauly Dís Baby Mama Allegedly Took Money For An Abortion Then Changed Her Mind
Just when you thought Pauly Dís litigious, mean-spirited and outlandish baby mama drama couldnít get any worse, more details have emerged that further clarify just how bizarre and uncomfortable this mess is. Apparently, Amanda Markert is now trying to sell text messages the former Jersey Shore sent her in which he tells her he would rather she abort the baby and he will pay for it if she does.
According to TMZ, thatís not even the strangest part about the story, however. The outlet claims she actually accepted the money for the procedure and later changed her mind. As a woman, itís her right to do whatever it is she wants with her body, but that complete one hundred and eighty degree turn could be the reason why the tension between these two has gotten so bad.
As for why Pauly D wanted the child aborted, he obviously isnít speaking publically, but rumor has it he tells her in those text messages that itís a less than ideal situation because he and Markert barely know each other, never planned for this and live thousands of miles apart. Now that the kid has been born, however, the ex-reality star has changed his tune quite a bit and would like to be granted custody of the little girl, both because heís interested in spending as much time as possible with the child and because he doesnít trust the ex-Hooters waitress with the kid.
That custody situation, however, is extremely complicated because Pauly D and Amanda have filled motions to address the matter in separate states (Nevada and New Jersey). In theory, the laws in both places are the same, but in practice, thereís actually a ton of wiggle room for interpretation. Hereís how CB Legal Expert Brent Randall describes itÖ
ďDeterminations of child custody come out of state law. The laws of most states direct the courts to consider what the "best interests" of the child are in choosing between one of the parents having custody or granting joint custody. For this reason, the law is open to the interpretations of that state's courts. Both New Jersey and Nevada have these "best interest" provisions. Judges, just like anyone else, have their opinions on what kinds of arrangements are best for children, and as such, those opinions shape their respective state laws.Ē
Without some kind of surprise settlement, itíll take months for everyone involved to hammer out all of the specifics of the custody/ child support. Right now, emotions are running very high, but with the presence of lawyers, thereís every reason to hope these two can calm down and come to a rational compromise. Whether they realize it or not, the little girl is far better off having two parents, especially if they can behave civilly in their brief interactions with one another.
