R&B crooner Usher Raymond’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond has filed court documents criticizing his parenting skills. The 34-year-old singer was awarded primary custody of his two sons with Tameka Raymond last year.
In court documents filed in Atlanta, Tameka has asked a judge to hold Usher in contempt of court for storming out of a co-parenting class in July.
Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond appeared as a guest on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to discuss her ongoing custody battle for her two sons. Usher and Tameka’s 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, was released from a children’s hospital on Sunday, one week after nearly drowning in a swimming pool accident.
Tameka described the moment she got the call that her son, Usher V, almost drowned. “It was like I relived it. My brain went into all these modes. I’d gotten this call before.” Tameka was referring to the death of her 11-year-old son Kile Glover who was declared brain dead after a freak boating accident on Lake Lanier in July 2012. He died 2 weeks later when he was taken off life support.
Singer Usher Raymond smiled as he arrived at Fulton County Courthouse court in Atlanta, Georgia earlier today to face his ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, in a new child custody battle after one of their sons nearly drowned in a swimming pool accident Monday.
Five-year-old Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, is still recovering at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hospital, according to the Tameka’s lawyer, Lisa West.
Tameka took the stand this afternoon and said she was concerned there was no pool drain cover installed in the pool as required by law. She said there have been other incidents — in addition to Cinco’s near drowning this week — that prove Usher is a bad dad.
Tameka also expressed concerns that Usher’s aunt, Rena Oden, was incapable of caring for the 2 boys. Cinco almost drowned at Oden’s house on Howell Mill Road in DeKalb County, north of Atlanta.
During her protest on Friday, July 19, Funches appeared to sleep on the sidewalk outside a Chicago courthouse while a friend hovered over her with a homemade sign that implied Funches was homeless.

When will they lock this woman up in a mental institution for her own safety?

When Michael Jackson died in 2009, his will stipulated that close friend Diana Ross get custody of his children, Paris, Prince and Blanket, in the event of his mother Katherine’s death.
But in light of the tragic events of this past week involving 15-year-old Paris, Diana Ross is extremely concerned and ready to take custody of Paris when she is released from the hospital.
This isn’t Gabby and Megan’s official coming out (though we wish it were); this is another attempt by Gabby to draw attention to herself after embarrassing herself by publicly mocking Wade’s ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches.
