Adam Dell has won his bitter battle with “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi over their daughter, Krishna. The wealthy venture capitalist has succeeded in being recognized as Krishna’s father, and now the 2-year-old child will carry his famous last name.
Sources said after settling their fight over the baby, the tot will now be known as Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell. And Adam — brother of computer king Michael Dell — has also secured extra custody and visitation rights to the baby girl.
Dell sued Lakshmi in Manhattan Supreme Court last year, claiming she had refused to put his name on the birth certificate, and had cruelly told him she hoped her late partner, billionaire Teddy Forstmann, “was the child’s biological father.”
