R&B crooner Usher Raymond is still trying to sell Tameka Raymond's 12,000 sq ft mansion in Roswell. The sprawling mansion with 8 beds and 11 baths was listed for $3.2 million in January.

The home is about 5 miles from Usher's $1.9 million mansion in Johns Creek.

Usher and Grace Miguel

R&B singer Usher Raymond and his longtime girlfriend, Grace Miguel, were spotted leaving Cipriani Downtown restaurant in NYC on Wednesday. Grace hid her face behind an expensive Goyard clutch. She doesn't seem like the shy type, so why is she hiding her face? Usher has that "I'm so over her" look on his face. I recall seeing that same look on Usher's face right before he dumped his ex-wife Tameka Raymond for another mother figure.

    R&B crooner Usher Raymond was seen arriving at his downtown NY hotel today. He was dressed smartly in a blue suit and matching shoes. Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond was once again fodder for the blogs when her 4-year-old son, Naviyd, snapped a photo of his genitals and allegedly uploaded the image to his mother's Instagram page. When Tameka was alerted to the photo, she deleted the image and replaced it with one of the little boy in tears -- presumably after she'd placed him in time out.

    The photos touched off an outcry on social media from users who assumed the boy was with his father when he snapped the inappropriate photo. The question became: was Naviyd imitating his father? But Usher took to his Twitter account to proclaim his innocence. "Tameka," he tweeted, indicating that Naviyd was with his mother when the incident occurred.

    Straightfromthea.com reports that Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane, who presided over the contentious Raymond vs Raymond child custody case, has stepped down.

    In a controversial ruling in September, Judge Tipton-Lane awarded Usher Raymond full custody of his two boys, ages 4 and 5. Prior to the judge's ruling, Raymond shared custody of the boys with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster-Raymond.

    Following the ruling, Foster-Raymond’s attorney, Lisa West, filed a Motion for Recusal, accusing Tipton-Lane of bias in light of Judge Lane’s close ties with Usher Raymond’s attorney, John Mayoue, who contributed to Judge Lane’s reelection campaign.

    Sandrarose.com was the first blog to bring you the news of Judge Lane's ties to Usher's attorney.
