Fast and Furious actor Ludacris has been awarded primary physical custody of the lovechild he fathered while he was separated from his now-wife, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue.

An Atlanta judge ruled in the rapper's favour after declaring that he would provide a more stable home for the 13-month-old girl than her mother Tamika Fuller.

The decision comes after months of heated litigation in family court, which saw Fuller claim the star offered her "cash and a house" if she got an abortion.

"He gave me the money for an abortion actually. It was $900 and change," she testified in court adding: "I didn't want to take his money at the time."

Full custody means that the Act a Fool hit maker will no longer have to pay $7000 a month in child support payments to Fuller.

The 37-year-old star told People magazine in a statement: "I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter."

On News Year's Eve, Bridges tied the knot with Mbouguiengue, his girlfriend of six years, hours after popping the question.

According to TMZ, the couple exchanged vows at the Georgia home in the presence of family and a few friends.

Fuller had accused Ludacris of having the quickie marriage just so he could prove how stable his household was to the judge.

The actor, who also has 13-year-old daughter Karma from a previous relationship, hit back by accusing Fuller of trying to damage his reputation. Their little girl was born in December 2013.
