DJ Pauly D announced on Tuesday that he is the proud father of a 5-month-old baby girl, Amabella. On Wednesday, October 23, 2013, TMZ reported that while Pauly is excited about this new part of his life, there is already an ugly child support and custody battle going on between him and Amanda Markert, the baby's mother.
Both Pauly D and Amanda have reportedly filed documents with the court. Amanda is said to be demanding child support and from a recent picture of Amabella sitting in a high-chair covered with $100 bills, she must feel she hit the jackpot.
According to TMZ, sources say Pauly filed for custody of Amabella, claiming that Amanda is an unfit mother. Pauly is concerned because the 25-year-old mother already has another child and that she used to work at Hooters.
The 33-year-old DJ met Amanda in Las Vegas last year and had a one time hook up. Amabella was born in May and Pauly D has yet to see her, but is working towards it.
Pauly D tweeted thanks to his family, friends and fans for their well wishes on his baby girl. Amanda Markert has taken to her Twitter as well, but her tweets are not so heartwarming as Pauly's.

Amanda Markert resides in Atlantic City and also has a 5-year-old son, Mikey. She is a college student and works at The Pool After Dark at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City providing VIP bottle service.
