Usher Wins Custody Battle, Hugs Ex-Wife in Court

by at . Comments

Hours of emotional testimony in the custody battle between Usher and his ex-wife today resulted in the singer keeping primary custody of the former couple's two sons.

As previously reported, five-year old Usher Raymond V nearly drowned on Monday and remains in the ICU under doctor's care, though all accounts say the boy will recover fully.

In response to the incident, Tameka Raymond was granted an emergency hearing in which she argued that Usher is a negligent father who too often leaves the children under someone else's supervision.

According to TMZ sources, Tameka reiterated on the stand that the pool accident was simply the latest in a string of examples that prove Usher is an inattentive parent.

She even broke down at one point when discussing her reaction to little Usher's condition immediately following the incident.

Usher and his legal team, meanwhile, argued that the accident could have happened to anyone at any time and that the singer positively loves his children.

In the end, a judge ruled that Usher will maintain primary custody and Tameka will retain her right to occasionally visit with the boys.

At the conclusion of the hearing, Usher embraced his ex-wife.

Do you know her personally? All any of us know is what we've read and seen on TV. The media always depicts ex wives as the villain. Usher took this woman thru the ringer and cheated on her numerous times while they were married. He has admitted this many times. Of course she is bitter and angry. She may not be the perfect mom but I do think she loves her kids. It's surprising how many women quickly defend the handsome star and throw the woman under the bus. Smh


she wasd paid lavishly after the battle.


They both need to do a better job co-parenting. This was an unfortunate accident but I think they need to speak and interact more regarding their sons.

You can't deal with her...she's crazy. Did you read her testimony in the paper. She's a bitch
