In addition to the trauma Usher’s going through involving his oldest son Usher Raymond V’s serious pool accident last week, the R&B superstar is also dealing with an on-going custody struggle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster.
Usher’s ex called an emergency custody hearing in light of the recent accident,claiming that Usher’s absence and lack of attention to the former couple’s two children is putting them at risk.
But on Friday, August 9, the judge dismissed Tameka’s request, leading her to tears. Surprisingly, Ush even consoled his ex, hugging her as she sobbed in court.
This isn’t the first time the couple has been down this road in their custody battle. Usher was awarded primary custody of his two sons last August, but Tameka still plans to appeal that decision.
Tameka even took to Twitter to clarify what went down to interested fans.
“@IsaiahWJ_ it was a Emer. Hearing.. Not a custody battle. The media is mis- characterizing what it was. My custody re-trial is late August,” she tweeted on August 10.
Tameka’s appeal will still be happening later this month and Ush isn’t out of the woods yet. Some claim that Ush’s ex was taking advantage of the situation to take her sons away, but this grieving mother has a reason to be edge.
Last summer her son Kile was killed in a tragic jet skiing accident, and this latest incident with Usher Raymond V has sent her into a panic.
