Usher Raymond Wins Primary Custody of Sons

As the old saying goes: it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. In a blockbuster ruling today, Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane sided with singer User Raymond, awarding him primary custody of his two sons in a bitter child custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond.

The tables have now turned on Foster-Raymond, who will be forced to make arrangements with Usher to determine when and where she sees their sons, 4 and 3.

Sources tell Sandrarose.com that the judge made her determination based on Foster-Raymond’s psychological evaluation. The psychological report allegedly determined that Foster-Raymond had mental issues.

Sandrarose.com told you last week that Usher had an ace in the hole. It seems my confidential source was right — again.

Judge Tipton-Lane made the unusual move of releasing a partial verdict last Friday — finding Usher in contempt of court.

According to my source, who asked to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to speak on the subject publicly, Usher’s ace in the hole was his attorney John Mayoue, who allegedly worked on the campaign for Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane’s re-election.

My source also stated that Mayoue allegedly acted as her treasurer and he also had ties to the now-defunct law firm of Weinstock & Scavo, where, apparently, there is also a connection to the judge.

Last Friday, Usher allegedly called Tameka on the phone and said to her “How does it feel to have lost your kids? Your son is dead, and now you have lost the boys too.” He continued: “I will let them know that [they] used to have a mother.” She responded, “How do you know I lost? His response, Why do you think I hired John?” “I hate you!”

Foster-Raymond allegedly recorded the conversation.

The decision came down at approximately 2 p.m. today, according to my source who was at the courthouse.

Update: My source, who was at the courthouse when the dramatic decision came down today, says the court document is “blistering” toward Foster-Raymond — just as blistering as the partial verdict was toward Usher Raymond.

My source also said Foster-Raymond will have to give buyers access to see her Roswell mansion — which Usher has been trying to sell for months now. He also said Foster-Raymond will have to move out of the house soon.

      This is sad! How can Usher talk about her having nannies when he is about to go on tour. The VMA’s are coming up, BET Awards, etc. Will he have the boys singing background? I need someone to help me understand the rationale b/c from the look of things, there was NO evidence that she was unfit. SMH! As The World Turns!

      I don’t know that it’s about who you know in this case. Usher and his witnesses said some pretty serious things about Tameka. Like her being depressed and spending the majority of her time in her bedroom. We see on Twitter that she is not the most stable person in the world. She is very vindictive and angry. I think this was a good decision.

      ————————————————————————-
      It is called Georgia Probate court. Anytime a father has the finances to pay an excellent attorney 7 out of 10 times he will get physical custody of the kids. Work in the system see it all the time.

      I feel bad for Tameka cause as a mom I will kill my sperm donor and has expressed this to him a mil and one different ways if he ever tried that ish. On the other hand in ATL Tameka has burned a lot of bridges prior to, during and after her marriage to Usher. She can appeal the decision but it will take years in court and lots of money

      You’re unstable then. (I kid, but not really). The rational thing to do would be to get off Twitter OR ignore those fools who are tweeting you. We have to stop reacting to BS, and putting ourselves into greater trouble and start using common sense again.

      I don’t understand the sudden shift towards supporting Tameka. Tameka hasn’t changed since we started paying attention to her. Her mental illness was obvious to everyone but Usher. Tameka doesn’t have custody of her first kids, why would she get custody of these two?

      Is that a problem? Now he can support the kids and pay his mortgage. The kids still have a home and their needs met.

      I’m not sure if I would have ripped the kids away so soon after her losing the other child but I don’t know the dynamics.

      __________

      I believe that when you sit down and talk about to have a marriage(becoming one), like a prenup, those things are hatched out then. If she has the kids then she is to be provided funds to help with that. That shouldn’t be questioned. A real man understands this.

      I don’t believe in a woman leaving and being kicked in the dirt with nothing. Think of it like a stipend.Upon divorce you get such and such. I think that is common. Well not in everybody’s race. But what I am speaking of, civilized people with something already do this.

      You may have been speaking of paying a mortgage, hair, continuosly. I know men who have went as far and bought a house because of the kids and not her. Not just I will get full custody and dont pay nothing. They make sure the mother is fine as well. There is nothing wrong with that.

      I recall all the times Usher had difficulty seeing his kids, or Tameka would delay handing the kids over, or she would fight with his girlfriend in her driveway when Usher brought her to pick up his sons. He’s gone through a lot for the love of his children. I’m sure he’s super relieved today.
      ________________

      Wasn’t Grace allegedly one of Tameka’s friends, whom is now flucking her ex-husband, and was possibly flucking him while they were still married? Could that be the reason why Tameka tried to fight her?

      And also, this is no surprise that Usher got custody, considering what the real reason why her first husband was able to obtain custody of her other boys. Not only has Tameka displayed wreckless behavior on various social networks, this makes her character and judement as a parent questionable. No telling what other parental mishaps she’s hiding. Besides, wasn’t there an article in a tabloid exposing all of her trifling ways, some years back? Oh well, she can dust them eggs off and find another young buck to have a baby with. Life goes on.

      Congrats to Usher. I feel like it takes 2 to raise a Black child, and a little Black boy needs a strong Black man in his life…but if given the choice Id usually go with the Mother. Nothing like Maternal instinct. However, based on what Ive seen & heard (which isnt much) the judge might have made the right decision here. Most wouldnt be crying for Tameka but for the loss of her son recently, however, she chose not to delay the proceedings…So maybe there is something off with her mentally, and maybe its justified…The mental issue that is…Who wouldnt be crazy after losing their young child? Im sure the mental evaluation was done before hand, so if they found issues then…Whatever the case its over for now.

      ^So Tameka doesnt have custody of her oldest children either? Interesting if true. So who had physical custody when the young boy had his accident? I know Tameka supposedly had to be flown in to be by his side, but I didnt know she was without custody at the time. I thought they were just with dad or something like that…

      One of the nanny’s tesified that Tameka would stay up in her room all day for days on in and refuse to be disturbed. The children barely saw her when she was home with them. Maybe if she seeks help the judgement can be revisited later. Right now she is not in a place mentally to nurture her babies.

      sassyshe says:

      In Georgia it has nothing to do with the kids being in danger. If a parent who has physical custody leaves the kids for periods of time without checking in on them, a probate or family court judge will award custody to the father. I came from up North where men getting custody of their kids were 1 in a million unless homegirl was a bonafide crackhead. In GA a lot of fathers are awarded physical custody – why cause you got a bunch of women claiming that they need to focus on other things or too busy chasing after next dude. Prior to this court situation, it was well documented how Usher would have the kids for weeks on it (that’s what the judge meant by being relaxed about the agreement)and even when he was on the road he would send for them during his visitation periods or even attempt to see them and Meka would block him. We dont know the exact details but with kids that young judges tend to do a 1/2 and 1/2 schedule prior to switching physical custody, thus if this was done there was more than documented proof to show that Meka was not doing what she was supposed to do as the physical custodian

      If the legitimization process was not such a hassle, there would be a lot of single chicks (I really want to say rats) in GA without their kids. It all boils down to be careful who you end up having kids yet. You cannot foretell everything about a man or woman but if 3/4 people had discussions prior to having kids, raising them would not be such a hassle. Ive said it time and time again leave the courts of our raising your kids and handling your business.

      ….and this is why the judge made usher give her the saks card back, it was all about money. Squating in a house that doesn’t belong to you, wanting and increase in child support, seemingly unwilling to settle outside of court, and wanting a credit card back for the “perks”, where are her priorities? I’m sure there is WAY more to this case as she doesn’t have custody of her other boys, and maybe the reason for her not having custody of them is why usher filed for custody after the divorce. He may have known she had mental health issues but was ok with that because she was on her meds or seeking treatment when they were married and probably required that she have a nanny or be in the presence of others when he wasn’t around.

      All I know is if I was fighting for custody of my children the last thing I would be talking about in a child custody trial is a credit card.

      Yes, I agree I think it’s great that fathers are stepping up the plate and taking charge in their childrens lives.

      IMHO I think the Ms. Tameka Raymond played her cards and unforunately she didn’t have a full deck. LITTERLLY This is what happens when you play with matches and the respondent has a blow torch. Please know who you dealing with or you will get burned. She should have left well enough alone. The child support would have supplied all of her needs. DUMBASH On the humble I’ve bragged about my child support, but I played my cards and kept quiet for years before I even tried to go to court. Many things in place before I even went to court. Established employment in new city for 5 years, purchased home, son in several after school programs/sports, braces. All of which I paid for…

      judges don’t care about you being the mother. They care about who can care for child/chidlren the best. A smart person would have delayed the case for 6 months to a year so she could grieve her son. This case had all kinds of red flags. TRAGIC FAIL Tameka

      mjoylaw says:

      I’m all for men being active parents. And I don’t know all the facts in this case.

      I do know that psychological testing in custody cases rarely goes in favor of the mother in a contested custody case. It is a classic tactic used for a father to gain control when he des not want to coparent or pay child support.

      So Tameka’s lawyer’s first mistake was not getting the request for the testing shut down immediately.

      Also I don’t know what possessed them to litigate the Saks card in the custody case. Very bad strategy.

      They should have been prepared to counter testimony that Tameka stays in her room. Or is a hands off parent. Or blocked Usher’s visitation, badmouthed him to the kids, or fought with his girlfriend. Why would she do that or allow Usher to know certain details. He’s been gathering evidence against her for some time and she was giving it to him. Knowing that she has a rich ex spouse who might be litigious. Perhaps there wasn’t much that Tameka’s lawyer could do.

      There are studies that show most of the time, when fathers litigate custody, they win. It is highly slanderous for a mother to even be taken to court in the first place, and these cases tend to go downhill from there. There must have been an amicable agreement with the first husband and no contested litigation on custody then. Because Tameka was clueless that she could really lose custody. The tactical errors made here should have been avoided.

      Well I guess she knows now. I’m sure the boys will continue to see her and stay overnight. But Usher will have primary physical. If the physical custody remains joint but he has primary he will still pay child support a la Halle paying Gabriel…………………….perhaps we will see the order or receive more info about the particulars soon……………………………………peace

      I don’t know why this is such a shock considering that she didn’t have custody of her two older boys . Tameka stayed in the gossip columns with her nonsense and negativity. Why is it “poor Tameka”? Plus they are boys and the daddy fought to raise his ‘sons’. If Tameka has mental issues, why would a judge side with her regardless of Usher having nannies? One set of nannies versus another makes no diff… what does make a difference is the stability of the custodial parent and there have been talks of her being “OFF” since her first set of kids…not just b/c of the death of her son either.

And the sad part is these kids will see so much sh!t written.

      she and her previous kids came as a package. however, it makes NO DAMN SENSE for him to continue paying utilities, upkeep, and mortgage on a house they maybe screwed in for 2 years. that marriage was so short the only reason it counts is because she hurried up and had as many babies as humanly possible in that period of time.

      this shyt reminds me of the keith sweat case, which also had a lot to do with mismanagement and reckless spending of money.

      According to TMZ, she’s appealing the decision based on the fact that Usher’s lawyers had a clear connection to the judge :coffee: not a damn thing about this makes sense but I also don’t unnecessarily hate a woman I’ve never met either ( excuse me for being bitter but the comments on TMZ really turned my stomach ). All I can say is :claps: for Tameka :thumbsup: on the appeal
      ——————

      I feel the same way. :shrug: I don’t know why people think Tameka is so evil and Usher is so innocent. I mean they both could be the exact thing people describe them as but then again, no one like her from the jump. I always thought Usher resented her because his career took a nose dive after they got married….AND then he decided to divorce her because of that…

      Oh well, I hope they can do a joint custody arrangement. Sell the house and raise the kids together!

      Morning yall :waves:

      Never mind the fact one of the nannies only worked for Tameka a couple days during a few month timeframe. Or she seemed to be a big ole fan of Ursh.

      Or he paid for the guardian ad litem services and this particular GAL favors the father.

      When I get to the computer Im gone do some copying and pasting.

    232. 232

      Ohhh I found it :coffee: Her attitude at best was crass, that does not work in the court room. She may appeal, but unless her self righteous behavior changes, she’ll always be left looking DUMB. Wonders if her lawyer was paid, because she will ill advised, she really acted up in the court room. I’m embarassed for her as a mother.

      lovezoe says:

      I can’t C&P, but the guardian ad litem said that Tameka had a nurturing bond with her kids, Usher did not provide him with his tour schedule, he was unaware that Usher resided in NY, Usher did not provide the nannies timesheets to see how often the kids were taken care of by nannies vs, Usher, the guardian ad litem said the reason he recommended Usher gets custody is because he can provide for them and because Meka has negative interactions with people.

      The nanny visited Usher at his home and had secret conversations with him about Tameka and her parenting skills. THEN she admitted on cross, that she had complained to the guardian ad litem TWO months earlier about USHER’S lack of parenting skills.

      Another nanny had said she seemed stressed and overwhelmed, but since she did not spend that much time working with her, it was inapplicable

      Tameka’s long-term individual marriage and family therapist said she did not have a mental disorder, but did have stress anxiety that was brought on by the actions of Usher.

      There is more…

      At this point I don’t know what to believe :tea: but I know something not right with this story

      Imma need Tameka to get herself together IF all of this stuff is actually true. Take some classes, get some certificates and regain your composure…..so you can eventually regain custody of your children…

      OH and delete your twitter account ASAP!!!!

      If that don’t work, her and Siovaughn Wade need to submit applications for Hollywood Ex’s or Basketball Wives (Wade)….

      Tameka’s sister testified and said she personally witnessed Usher ramming a car into one his mother was sitting in.

      A long-term babysitter testified that she took Baby Usher to MIA to see Usher when Meka was pregnant. He came to see him once for fifteen minutes while the baby was sleeping.

      On cross, Usher admitted that his and his mother relationship was rocky. He called her a MFer (his momma), his grandma his 80 and she is the one who let the stalker in the house, both the aunt and grandma stay in Chatoonga and must travel to ATL when the boys are with Usher. He is absent from ATL half the time and will be touring in Europe in the beginning of 2013.

      Kile’s godmother testified- She claims Tameka did not spend time with her children. She also said she did not have any reason to speak bad about Tameka, but on cross she admitted that her and Tameka got to arguing on a vacation to mourn Kile’s passing and she left early because of it. She also said Tameka did not have the right to mourn her son’s passing.
