Marlon Wayans's ex Brittany Moreland has filed for full custody of their 15-month-old daughter.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Moreland, 34, filed a petition to determine a paternal relationship with Wayans, 51, in the state of California.

The actor also has two children, Kai and Shawn, with ex Angela Zackery, with whom he was in a relationship from 1992 to 2013. He welcomed daughter Axl and signed a voluntary declaration of parentage on Dec. 13, 2022, just one day after the baby girl's birth.

According to the filing, Moreland is seeking full legal and physical custody of Axl but is asking that the actor receive visitation rights.

On Thursday, Wayans spoke with The Shade Room, responding to Moreland's legal filings. "All love, all God. The baby isn't a secret. The mama has been posted. But I chose to keep the baby's private life private," he said. "Ain't nobody's business. Social media is toxic and dangerous, and I'd like to keep her peace."

However, the actor said that he didn't like being named as a "visitor" to his daughter.

"Do you pay all that money per month and be called a 'visitor?' Do the math. This is delusional. I will let the lawyers and God do what they do," Wayans told the outlet. "I'll be creating art from a broken heart. I got nothing but love. Even when it's bad, it's good...it's GOD."

Moreland is also petitioning for “reasonable expenses of pregnancy and birth,” as well as fees and costs of litigation to be covered by Wayans.

In addition to the paternity documents, Moreland, who is listed as an “unemployed graduate student” in California, submitted an income and expense declaration.

She states that part of her monthly expenses goes toward providing “clothes for the minor child.”

According to documentation filed by the 34-year-old, Axl spends “95 percent of their time with me and 5 percent of their time with the other parent.”

Moreland is requesting $2,000 per month from Wayans for child care so that she can continue working.

Wayans also addressed Moreland's child support requests in the paternity suit in conversation with The Shade Room.

"It's the classic case of a good, loving, responsible father shelling out over $18k per month for a one-year-old, and an entitled woman decides she wants more," Wayans said. "My mama and dem would've lost their minds for $2k."
