Usher Maintains Custody of Sons After Emergency Hearing

Tameka Raymond and Usher

Usher will retain custody of his two sons after an Atlanta judge dismissed an emergency motion filed by his ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, seeking temporary custody of their children.

The judge ruled that despite the near-fatal pool accident involving their 5-year-old son Usher Raymond V, it was not an emergency or crisis situation requiring that Usher’s two children be taken from him (via CNN).

Usher’s aunt Rena Oden, who was watching the children at the time, took the stand, saying she cared for Usher’s kids for years and Tameka never had an issue with it until now.

Tameka broke down in tears while talking about her son’s accident. “The whole scene was chaos!” she said, adding that she didn’t know if her child had suffered permanent damage.

After the nearly two-hour hearing, Usher hugged his ex-wife before exiting the courtroom.

Usher Raymond V is still in an Atlanta hospital to ensure that “every possible test has been completed.” He is expected to be discharged on Sunday.

“I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident,” said Tameka.

    @troof, he chose to love and have 2 babies with Tameka. He took her away from her husband, and he is the homewrecker, not Tameka. If he had stood up to his mother and every other negativity that came against their marriage, he’d be a happy man now with his family in tact.

    @dora, Just because he chose to love her and NOT listen to his mother and everyone else is no reason to punish his children by allowing them to be with an unstable and seemingly uncaring and bitter mother. She had no reason to ask for custody at a time like this. The most important thing was that little boy was alright. Tameka knows the children are well taken care of by an aunt, not a nanny as she suggests. If we’re going to blame Usher or anyone else for this accident then Tameka herself should be blamed for her own son’s recent death. Who’s care was he in? Oh yes, hers. She is being absolutely ridiculous trying to say Usher is an unfit parent. More power to him and please have a third party when they visit their mother. Hard telling what she might try to put in their head.

    What a messy situation. Usher’s career hasn’t really been the same since he got involved with Tameka. I know their kids are their top priority but I feel like those 2 kids are going to grow up having to take sides with their parents. Shits gonna get messy!

    I think Tameka was a bit overboard, but I do understand where she is coming from. She did loose her oldest child to an water related accident . I can’t even imagine how she would handle another incident.

    @Brian, Tameka was a good mother and wife before she met this n8ggah. He is a fool if he believes that the woman who gave her life to birth his children isn’t the best one to raise it.

    He should joyfully support Tameka for giving him 2 sons. A REAL man knows he takes care of his children’s one and only mother they will ever have.

    First Tameka almost died getting plastic surgery, then his step son dies, now his son almost dies. I feel for him, this goes to show all the money in the world doesn’t equal happiness. I think tameka is a horrible person inside tho…her motives are clear. It’s a reason ushers mom never approved of her. I’m glad the judge dismissed this.

    @Meme, Tameka is not a homewrecker, HE IS! He impregnated her, took her away from the security of her husband, and she was a great mother to ALL her children. His association with evil low life women has brought evil and destrution into his life, just like bad associations did with chris brown, and trayvon martin.

    Finally the system tryna let good dads b good dads instead of blindly side with the golddiggers only worried about the next child support check. I feel for Usher for goin through such an evil ploy publicly from that woman while he should be focusing on what’s goin on in the hospital. Plus I watched the video, she didn’t shed A SINGLE tear. At that point it was crystal clear to me what she was tryna accomplish. Though I feel some sympathy for her considering she already lost a child, I cannot condone her actions. The reason she keeps takin L’s is because God is fair. #justfoodforthoughts

    You talk like a total fool. No grandmother, No aunt, No Cousin, will ever take the place of the mother who carried the child for 9 months in her womb, and put down her life to give it birth.

    Usher is so unbelievably stupid, and when those kids grow up they will hate him for treating their mother this way.

    @diane, Hopefully they will appreciate the fact that he was there for them and stood up for them. Not all mothers are that great just because they gave birth. Some are even child abusers. Just because you gave birth to children doesn’t mean you love them, not saying she doesn’t but what matters is what is best for the kids, not her pocket book.
