Usher’s Ex Wife Tameka Foster Raymond Loses Custody Battle
The long, drawn out custody war between Usher Raymond and his ex wife Tameka Foster Raymond is now over, with Usher being awarded full primary custody of their two sons Usher V and Naviyd.
This means that Usher is now legally able to make ALL decisions regarding their sons, including when and where Tameka can see them.
Usher originally filed suit against Tameka, seeking sole custody of the boys, on claims that Foster was “incapable of being a proper parent” to them.
Tameka’s counter claim was that Usher is going on a world tour next year, and would be too busy traveling to take car of the children, who will most likely be put off on nannies.
According to TMZ, Tameka felt that the R&B singer was an absentee father who was too absorbed in his career to be a good dad, and also accused him of using drugs in front of the kids.
The argument from Usher’s lawyers was that Tameka “does not have the emotional stability to or capacity to bond with them, and therefore she is handicapped,” though they failed to provide any solid proof — other than the recent loss of her 11-year-old son — as evidence.
When all was said and done, the judge sided with Usher, and awarded him primary sole custody of the boys, while Tameka will remain “some” custodial rights, though the extent to which she will be able to see her kids is unclear at the moment.
