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?

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.

We are one week away from the release of Justin Bieber's special shout-out to Christmas, as "Under the Mistletoe" comes out on November 1.

In anticipation of this event, the singer unveiled the official music video for his holiday original a few days ago - and now he's teamed up with Usher to present this duo's version of "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire."

"This record is going to be remembered for years to come," Usher said on Ryan Seacrest's radio program today. "It's a record that has always been on of my favorites, and I'm happy that I was able to share it with Justin, and for us to put it out."

Lady Gaga and others will honor the former President tomorrow.

Kenny Chesney, Juanes, K'Naan and XX are also on the bill for the one night only event, which will also feature an acoustic set by U2's The Edge and Bono.

We've already heard about what happened when Lady Gaga met President Obama. We can only hope she wears something like this tomorrow night as well.

We've warned you before, Taylor Swift fans: you really have no idea who might join this talented artist on stage when she plays a concert in your hometown.

In late August, Justin Bieber sang a duet with Taylor in Los Angeles, while Nicki Minaj did the honors one night later.

Over the weekend, meanwhile, Swift played a couple of shows in Atlanta - and was joined by a couple of that city's most beloved musical icons. First up, watch T Swizzle drop a serious beat alongside Usher during a live rendition of "Yeah!"

Justin Bieber has made it very clear: he'll be teaming up with mentor Usher for at least one song on his upcoming Christmas CD.

“just finished a late nt in the studio for the christmas album…it is OFFICIAL…my big bro @UsherRaymondIV is on the album with me! #EPIC (sic)” Justin Tweeted this week.

Let's just hope Justin can find time to lay down some songs in between his planning of amazing dates with Selena Gomez.

Friends and Artists

No release date has been announced for the album yet, but Billboard might as well save a spot at number-one for Justin some time this winter.

Other artists rumored to be collaborating with Bieber on it include The Band Perry, Boyz II Men, Taylor Swift and Sean Kingston.

Usher has a new lingerie line coming out. Yes, really. That's a little surprising ... the fact that he wants Pippa Middleton to model for it? Who can argue.

The R&B singer has not made a formal offer, but is making an informal pitch by praising P. Middy in a recent interview regarding his new venture.

"I don't think there's a more beautiful, more stunning, more talked-about woman in the world at the moment," Usher gushed to Look magazine.

Aside from her own sister? Agreed!

  • Gorgeous Pippa

"I'm going to be approaching her in the next few weeks and setting up a meeting this summer," the singer said of his potential "global brand."

"Everybody knows her now, [Pippa Middleton] would be perfect. I am sure everybody is trying to sign her up and she won't be cheap, but she has the looks and the popularity to really establish a new product."

No doubt. Wonder how Alex Loudon feels about this.

Usher's still-unnamed lingerie line is expected to debut this summer. While we sincerely doubt Pippa will strip down for it, there's no harm in asking.

Seriously, Ush, run with it. You never know. And no matter what, we at least we get to write "Pippa Middleton" and "lingerie" in the same story.

Tameka Foster is out, and Grace Miguel is in... charge of Usher, sources tell The New York Post.

Miguel, 43, is a former Def Jam executive who started dating the hip hop star a few months after he split from Foster. An insider says she's calling all the shots in Usher's career these days, convincing him to fire agent Mark Cheatham, for example. Stylists, choreographers and tour managers may be next.

All About Usher

"Usher will do whatever she wants him do right now," a source told the newspaper of Miguel, while someone close to Cheatham adds: "Mark is really upset. He's been with him from the beginning. He thinks Usher will come back."

He may be waiting awhile. Usher has mixed business with pleasure in the past, firing his mom as his manager after marrying Foster.

It sounds like Usher may need to spend as much time behind the scenes of his career as he spends sculpting his ads. His amazing, rock-hard, incredible abs...

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.
