Fulton County Superior Court Judge John J. Goger granted Tameka Raymond’s request for an emergency hearing on Tuesday — one day after her 5-year-old son nearly drowned in his aunt’s swimming pool in Fulton County. The emergency hearing is scheduled for Friday, August 9.
Tameka Raymond is asking Judge Goger to reverse a previous court order giving singer Usher Raymond primary custody of their two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely, 4.
According to Hiphopenquirer.com, Usher V, aka Cinco, is still in an Atlanta hospital “under heavy sedation” after becoming entrapped in the pool’s drain. CNN reported that the child was “conscious, alert and breathing” after a contractor pulled him from the pool and performed CPR on him.
In a sworn affidavit attached to the court papers, Tameka Raymond said Usher “leaves the children with caregivers when he travels around the world for work rather than parenting them himself.” The affidavit said Tameka Raymond is “more capable of caring for the children,” and “the children have said they’d rather be with her than with caregivers.”
Tameka implied that she never leaves her sons in the care of third-party caregivers such as nannies. Tameka’s son Kile Glover, 11, died last July after suffering fatal head injuries during a boating accident on Lake Lanier.
Usher and Tameka Raymond divorced two years after getting married in 2007.
Goger is the same judge who recently returned a girl to her millionaire father after he was arrested twice for sexually molesting her.
