“Page Six” is reporting that Adam Dell, brother of Michael “Dude, You’re Getting A” Dell and father of Padma Lakshmi’s daughter (and New York Power Child!), Krishna, just filed a custody suit against the Top Chef host, claiming he doesn’t get to spend enough time with their daughter. According to “sources,” Dell only sees Krishna for seven hours a week and, even then, has to do things like fly to the Bahamas to make it happen, thanks to Lakshmi’s travel schedule. A rep for Lakshmi didn’t exactly deny the allegations, simply telling “Page Six,” “It appears to us that Mr. Dell remains more interested in garnering media attention than working out details to see Krishna or in her welfare.” [Page Six/NYP]
