According to a credible source, Tameka Foster Raymond was paid $25,000 to speak exclusively with Entertainment Tonight. Foster's exclusive interview with ET! airs tonight (Tuesday).
Foster, 42, recently lost her Motion for a new trial after losing primary custody of her 2 sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband Usher Raymond, 33.
During the interview with Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell, Foster seemed to forgive one of Usher's bridesmaids for sleeping with him after Foster and Usher tied the knot in 2009.
"This is someone who was there when my children were born she took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of [my children] but I hate to say but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap," Tameka told O'Dell.
"I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I think we all would admit that he's very charming," she went on.
But a source close to Foster's camp tells Sandrarose.com that Usher slept with Foster's close friend because he felt "emotionally deprived of affection" from the mother of 5. "She would withhold sex to [control him]," said the source. "Her a** is sneaky and he didn't trust her."
The confidential source continued: "[Usher's] mother gave him the the Private Investigator's report of Tameka's past criminal history that she forgot to tell him prior to their marriage.
"Who did she think she was to believe mama Patton would allow her to get her paws on his fortune when she worked for so many years to help him amass such," said the source, who added: "I admire [Jonetta Patton] for that."
