In his filings with the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Wayans also submitted a voluntary declaration of parentage, which he signed in December. He is requesting that the reasonable expenses of pregnancy and birth be shared jointly along with legal fees and other related expenses. Moreland had previously requested that Wayans cover these costs.

Wayans on Full Custody Request

More than three months after Moreland’s filing, Wayans has made his stance clear in an interview with The Shade Room. He firmly opposes being reduced to visitation rights only. It’s the classic case of a good, loving, responsible father shelling out over $18k per month for a one-year-old, and an entitled woman decides she wants more. My mama and dem would’ve lost their minds for $2k.

Wayans questioned the fairness of paying such a high amount in child support while potentially being labeled as a mere ‘visitor’ to his daughter, Axl. I will let the lawyers and God do what they do… I’ll be creating art from a broken heart.

A Stance on Co-Parenting

Wayans highlights his past success as a parent, I’ve had two children before this. I’ve never had this problem. I’m a good man with a good heart and strong sense of responsibility, but I refuse to be used and discredited. Marlon shares two older children, Kai, who recently came out as transgender, and Shawn, with ex Angelica Zachary.

Marlon’s mother Elvira had passed away in 2020 at the age of 81. He recently spoke about dealing with these personal losses in an interview with Good Morning America, noting that comedy helps him cope: “When I’m hurting…those laughs that I hear from other people healing from my pain…I realize my purpose.”

Court Proceedings Continue

As proceedings continue, both parties remain firm on their stances regarding custody and financial contributions. According to court documents, Moreland is asking for additional child support amounting to $2,000 more per month on top of the existing $18,000. She is also requesting reimbursement for the “reasonable expenses of pregnancy and birth” alongside her legal fees.
