Usher Fires Back at "Vile" Ex-Wife

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A judge may have ruled, but the legal battle between Usher and Tameka Foster appears to have no end in sight.

Late last month, the singer won primary custody of the two children he shares with Foster, only for his ex-wife to appeal the decision on the grounds that the judge was biased because Usher raised funds for his campaign in 2008.

And now Usher has filed a motion in response to that appeal.

In documents submitted last Wednesday, the artist urges the court to deny Foster's request because it is "an assault on the integrity of the court."

He argues that the granting of a new custody trial would create a slippery slope in which all decisions could be a reversed if an attorney contributed to a judge's campaign.

Usher alleges that Foster's legal maneuvering "constitutes a continuum of [Tameka's] vile and unsupported claims that every person who dared testify against her ... is biased and tainted."

No word from the judge regarding either filing yet, but we have a feeling we have not heard the last from either of these parties. Not by a long shot.
