Tameka Raymond is reportedly upset with her ex-husband, singer Usher Raymond, for allegedly using her son Kile Glover’s death to delay their contentious child custody hearing.
As I told you previously, Usher only visited 11-year-old Kile Glover “once” in the 3 weeks he stayed in ICU at a local children’s hospital. Kile died of traumatic brain injuries sustained in a boating accident on Lake Lanier. Family members were upset that the media continued to describe Kile as Usher’s “stepson” when Usher wasn’t in Kile’s life after his divorce from Tameka.
According to TMZ.com, Usher “blew off” Kile’s funeral in Atlanta last Friday. But a credible source informed Sandrarose.com that Usher was indeed in attendance — although he wasn’t seen in the funeral procession after the service.
Tameka Foster’s lawyer has filed new documents in the couple’s bitter child custody war … slamming Usher … who asked the court to delay the next hearing in light of the death of Tameka’s son, Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.
In his request, Usher claims he’s worried the hearing would cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children “in the immediate wake of this tragedy.”
Usher also claims Tameka would get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son. Usher fears he could lose custody of the children and believes it would be unfair to him.
But Tameka claims Usher is full of crap … and in docs of her own, insists U’s claims of suffering “stress and strain” are “BOGUS.”
In fact, Tameka claims Usher didn’t care about her son at all in his final days — even though Usher regarded him as a son back when they were married.
“[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once” during his 15 days on life support … Tameka claims.
She also claims she had begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, “Please pray for Kile” … but he refused. Instead, Tameka claims, Usher’s next tweet was a photo of his own breakfast with the caption, “Breakfast of Champions.”
