Voice coach Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, are expected to appear in an Atlanta courthouse today, after Tameka was granted an emergency custody hearing in light of their 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V’s, near-fatal accident in his father’s pool. TMZ is currently streaming the court case live, on August 9 starting at 2 p.m. ET.

It all started when the young boy’s arm got caught in a pool drain after he went underwater to recover a toy. Usher was not present at the time, and the boy was rescued by two workers, after a relative and family friend were unable to remove his arm.

Tameka alleges that Usher is an “absentee father”, who is not at home about 85 percent of the month. However, according According to TMZ, Usher has denied everything that his ex-wife has said about him, and he even counters that she is not a good parent!

While we’re unsure of how long this custody battle will go on, we do hope that the courts make the best decision for the childrens’ sake.

Do you think Usher will retain primary custody of his kids with Tameka, or do you think Tameka will get primary custody this time around? Tell us your thoughts below!
