Already squaring off against ex-wife Tameka Foster in court, Usher appears to be facing a new problem with a new woman.

The artist has obtained a temporary restraining order against Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, claiming she's living in a dream world where Usher is her husband.

In court documents, Usher alleges that Darshelle appeared at his home in Georgia, pounding on the front door until police were called to the property. She then left the area, only to return the next day and tell cops that she was married to Usher and simply misplaced her keys. At this time, Darshelle was arrested.

In the above video, however, Darshelle denies all charges and says Usher has been giving her money for a long time, while also promising to help with her music career.

She plans to file a defamation charges against Usher.

Here's a different take on a hit song by an artist you didn't see coming - and unlike the 96 "Call Me Maybe" covers out there, requires actual talent!

Usher took on Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" as part of his Live Lounge Special on BBC's Radio 1, showing off his surprising musical range.

He even played bass guitar himself on the track! For a man known for his sexy R&B tunes, Usher's not half bad when it comes to electro indie-rock.

Watch him do Foster the People proud below:

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.

Justin Bieber and Usher cover the latest issue of Billboard. We'll give you a moment to go pick up a copy...

Justin Bieber and Usher Billboard Cover

... got it? Okay. Good.

With the the release of Bieber's Believe just over a month away, mentor and protege gush over each other within the pages of the publication.

"He’s always been a dope MC," Usher says of the singer he discovered on YouTune. "'Boyfriend‘ was really the defining moment; it became No. 1 everywhere, which is what dreams are made of. Both of us are being modest about what our journeys have been in terms of songwriting: Justin really has participated in every writing session - that’s amazing.

"It’s easy to just dial something in, but if you make the music authentic, people feel connected to you as an artist from the beginning.”

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 NOT dead, despite Twitter reports to the contrary.

The star is alive and well ... and really ripped, apparently!

The R&B sensation became the latest "victim" of the lame and morbid trend of creating fake celebrity death stories and watching the rumors spread like wildfire online.

Way to go, hoax starters and people re-tweeting them! You really proved your point, or something! Anyway, Usher quickly assured us there's no need to worry:

Usher Shirtless Photo

"I must've died and went to heaven... Alive and cold kickin ass!!" he tweeted, along with a photo showing off his shirtless, buff bod, adding: "Livin' Legend!"

Now that's how you refute a death hoax.

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.

  • Tameka Picture

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.
