Welcome to The Real Housewives of Amazing Six Packs.

In court once again this morning to testify in the custody hearing brought on by ex-wife Tameka Foster, Usher was grilled about an incident from a couple years ago when Foster reportedly spit on Usher and sort of threatened his life.

Did Usher provoke this attack by cursing off his ex? No, the artist insisted over and over against allegations made by the attorney.

From there, meanwhile, things got really weird, as the same lawyer questioned Usher about his relationship with Maya Fox Davis, one of Tameka's bridesmaids from their wedding. She asked if the singer was caught "in bed" with Davis, at which point his attorney objected, claiming irrelevancy to the custody case.

Usher, to his credit, handled himself as well on the stand as he handles himself on the dance floor, remaining calm and under control, with the exception of yesterday's tears.

The trial is now in recess and will continue in July.

Usher took the stand yesterday in the custody trial brought on by ex-wife Tameka Foster - who has accused the singer of drug use and demanded the use of his mansion - and broke down in tears.

Usher quoted his ex as threatening: "I'm gonna kick your ass. Bitch get out of the car. How dare you bring this woman into my subdivision in my house?" and added:

"She continued to spit. At this point she pulled the door open, tried to swing at her."

Usher in Court

Foster herself has admitted under oath that she told Usher "I will f-ck you up," while Usher said here Tameka hit him and threw a plate of food at his car while he and his unnamed girlfriend drove away.

Later in his testimony, meanwhile, Usher responded to photos of him partying in Europe and allegations by Foster's attorney that he's an unfit parent by breaking down in tears.

TMZ sources say Usher admitted to marijuana use, while an objection was made to the topic of ecstasy - and the artist didn't give a clear response to whether he had ever been with his children while under the influence.

The custody trial continues today.

Tameka Foster has gone from threatening to pleading.

The ex-wife of Usher is tangled up with the R&B sensation inside a Georgia courtroom these days, fighting over custody of the former couple's children, along with alimony payments.

But while Foster admitted last week that she did once threaten to eff up Usher and his new girlfriend, sources tell TMZ Tameka sounded a different tone in mediation yesterday.

She just really doesn't want to be left homeless.

Based on their divorce settlement, Usher can reportedly kick Foster out of his mansion at any time, providing he gives her 60 days notice.

Therefore, Tameka is asking the singer to make this home permanent for him and for his two kids. His response: ain't gonna happen. I've given you enough already. A judge will rule on the pair's issues later this month.

Tameka Foster denies threatening to kill ex-husband Usher ... but she did make several comments that she can understand being taken that way.

Usher and Tameka are in a legal fight over custody of their two young kids, a bitter showdown that played out in a Georgia courtroom this week.

Accused of making death threats toward her ex, Foster did admit under oath to saying "I will f**k you up" ... which one can interpret as a threat.

Tameka Foster and Usher

Tameka was questioned by Usher's attorney about her verbal and abusive threats towards the singer, whom she wed in 2007 and divorced in 2009.

She allegedly said "I will kill you both," referring to Usher and his current GF.

Foster went back and forth with her answer before making a half-admission, saying she didn't threaten to "kill" him ... but admitting, "I probably have said, out of anger, say 'I will f**k you up' and that is not acceptable."

Tameka Foster went on to explain that the menacing statement(s) happened as a result of Usher gallivanting in and out of town with his new girlfriend, behavior that was "embarrassing" for her in such a tight knit community.

More importantly ... anyone know who this new girlfriend of Usher is?

Usher is taking action against his ex-wife and her recent allegations about the singer.

In late November, Tameka Raymond filed papers in a Georgia court that asked a judge to award her custody of the former couple's two children on grounds that Usher reneged on multiple promises he made to her. For example, he supposedly canceled Tameka's Saks 5th Avenue credit card.

The gall of this man, we know.

But now Usher has fired a legal shot of his own, denying all accusations in newly filed court documents and requesting that a judge to throw out his ex's request for full custody of the two kids they currently share.

He has also refused to take a drug test, despite Tameka's repeated attempts to force the issue.

A trial date has been set for February 27.

Tameka Foster is intent on proving that Usher is an unfit father.

The singer's ex-wife filed papers in court last week that allege a number of indiscretions by Usher, most of them based on the way he has treated Tameka, not the way he has been toward his two sons.

But now Foster is raising the accusatory ante, demanding a judge force Usher to take a drug test ASAP because she believes he's been popping pills around the pair's children. Usher has refused to take this bait so far, deeming his ex's claims to be "frivolous and unfounded," merely meant to "harass and embarrass" the artist.

As a result, lawyers are now involved and Tameka's side is urging the legal system to act quickly, lest Usher have the chance to "cleanse" his body of all foreign substances.

We'll see how this turns out, but right now it's clear Usher did the right thing by cleaning his life of Tameka, isn't it?

Tameka Foster is not seeking to strip Usher of custody of the former couple's two children. At least not according to a Tweet by the singer's ex-wife.

A day after TMZ published court documents that outlined a number of complaints Tameka has issued concerning Usher's treatment of her  - while printing a headline that paraphrases Tameka as saying Usher does not "deserve" their kids - Foster took to Twitter and ranted:

"Yeah... Great way to wake up huh? Some bs. Ppl have no idea about how crazy & deep this all is. The headline is a lie, also its negative because it only tells a morsel. Nothing but lies really sickening!"

Among other problems with her ex, Tameka says Usher has failed to comply with previous agreements that require him to ask her permission before hiring a nanny; allow her time with their sons during the summer and during Christmas; and that he must give her the option of caring for the children during any extended time away.

So, what is the truth? Tameka has not said any more and, at the moment, all we have are legal papers on one side versus a 140-character-or-less statement on the other side.

If Tameka truly wants to clear her name, she may want to get off Twitter and get into a courtroom.

The ex-wife of Usher is determined to make this anything but a happy holiday season for the ab-tastic artist.

Tameka Raymond - who split from the singer in June 2009 - has filed documents in a Georgia court that ask the judge to strip Usher of physical custody of the former couple's two children. On what grounds?

  • Usher Raymond Photo

Based on legal papers obtained by TMZ, some that are possibly understandable... and others that are downright ridiculous. Tameka alleges:

  • That Usher is obligated to get her approval prior to hiring nannies, but has failed to do so.
  • That Usher must give her the option of watching the children when he's away for more than eight hours, but has not always done so.
  • That Usher reneged on giving his ex custody of the kids for two weeks this past summer and during Christmas 2010.
  • That Usher has failed to obtain permission for Tameka to travel outside the state with her children, as previously promised.
  • That - we are not making this up - Usher canceled her Saks 5th Avenue credit card.

Overall, Tameka claims she is owed $34,000 in child support - and she's asking for even more per month going forward, due to a "substantial change in [Usher's] income." In other words: Usher has become even more of a success since he divorced his wife, and now she wants to reap the benefits of his hard work.

Even the Occupy Wall Street protestors would take exception to that argument.

Come on, Steve Hirsch. You have one job: to peddle celebrity sex tapes.

Despite this mission in life, the Vivid Entertainment Chairman has sent a letter to Usher that actually states he'll do everything he can to ensure the video this singer made with then-wife Tameka Foster never hits the open market.

Usher in The Netherlands

Writes the man who made amateur porn stars out of Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson and Montana Fishburne: "As a result of this being an intimate and very personal tape we can certainly understand why you would want to stop its distribution."

Wow. Looks like someone is CAUGHT UP in the notion that Usher and Tameka were married at the time the tape was made and is unwilling to say YEAH to the release of such a private video.

Guess when it comes to MAKING LOVE (INTO THE NIGHT), Usher can take comfort in knowing this act will never be viewed by strangers.

Okay. Sorry. We're done now. Go read Hirsch's full letter at TMZ.

Faced with questions and Tweets about her participation in an Usher sex tape, Tameka Foster has responded today with the same basic answer over and over:

I had intercourse with my husband. Shoot me!

"NEWSFLASH!! BREAKING NEWS! GUESS WHAT??!!" Foster wrote this morning. "I have copulated w/my husband! O_O. Why is this news again?? #ConfusedTweet. End of discussion."

Foster, Tameka

The news, of course, is that Foster and Usher copulated... and filmed said copulation... and somehow left the footage on a computer they placed inside a car. That's the story, at least.

Based on the aggressive way in which Tameka is acknowledging the video, many will claim she is the one behind its (inevitable) leak.

"I cant stress over what I cant change," she Tweeted this afternoon. "Hey I was married, happily. So theres a chance that we might…Its silly 'news' 2 me."

But it's still news. And this is the first time anyone has thought about Tameka Foster in years. Let the conspiracy theories begin.
