(LOS ANGELES) -- The father of Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi's 11-month-old daughter has reportedly filed legal papers to obtain custody of the child.
TMZ reports Adam Dell, the brother of computer billionaire Michael Dell, currently has visitation rights that give him nine days a month with his daughter, Krishna Thea Lakshmi.
The report says Adam and Padma had been discussing a different custody arrangement when talks fell apart. Sources close to Padma tell TMZ she wants nothing to do with Adam other than raising their baby and feels the legal move is his way of forcing a relationship.
