Former reality Tv star-turned-in demand DJ Pauly D and his baby daughter's mother are currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle, according to a U.S. report.
The former Jersey Shore cast member has revealed he is the father of a five-month-old baby girl, named Amabella, and told Tmz.com he was "excited to embark on this new part of my life."
The Dj is now reportedly seeking custody of the child, claiming the baby's 25-year-old mother, Amanda, is irresponsible.
He has cited her previous job as a waitress at sports bar chain Hooters, her age, 25, and the fact she has another child as proof he is the better parent, adding a photo of their baby surrounded by $100 bills, which she posted online, makes it look as if she's using the child for money.
The parents have both filed legal papers, with the mother requesting child support, according to Tmz.com.
