When court documents revealed an ugly split between The View's Sherri Shepherd and her husband, Lamar Sally, along with a custody fight over their unborn child via surrogate, fans were surprised by the news – but in her circle, it came as less of a shock. 

"I don't think any of us thought this was the right guy for her," a source close to the busy star, 47, tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "He's a very nice man, but he can't keep up with her. She's a force of nature." 

Sally, 43, who declined to comment on the case to PEOPLE, is requesting full custody of the couple's unborn child. 

The source says Shepherd, who is mom to 9-year-old son Jeffrey from her first marriage, to Jeff Tarpley, made no secret of her desire to have another child via surrogate. 

"She was open that this would be the only way she’d be able to have another baby," says the source.

I think he married her for her money/fame/prestige. He is asking her for spousal support!

Doesn't her first husband have custody of Jeffrey? I know he did at one point. It makes me wonder why her fitnesses as a parent keeps getting called into question.

I think you are right about her first son.

That really isn't true. I have seen parents of both sexes finding themselves unable to deal and leaving.Shari has never said her ex was anything but a good father. They divorced because he cheated. I thought he had their son when they first divorced because she had to travel a lot, and Jeffrey wasn't able.

As for this situation I don't know what to think.
