Usher's Ex-Wife:

You Don't DESERVE Our Kids

11/29/2011 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Usher and Tameka Raymond
's ex-wife wants to take away his kids ... claiming the singer has repeatedly blown off his legal obligations as a co-parent ... and even worse -- he CLOSED her Saks 5th Avenue credit card ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Tameka Raymond -- who had 2 kids with Usher during their brief 2 year marriage -- filed court papers in Georgia ... asking a judge to strip Usher of joint physical custody of their children ASAP.

According to the docs, Tameka claims Usher has repeatedly FAILED to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids ... which he's legally obligated to do.

But there's more ... a lot more.

Tameka also claims Usher is required and has failed to:
-- get her approval before hiring nannies
-- give her first shot to watch the kids when he's away for more than 8 hours
-- allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
-- let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010

Tameka also claims Usher closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card -- which he specifically said he wouldn't do -- and now she can no longer take advantage of the "special benefits" the card offers.

According to the docs, Usher also promised to pay $5k per month so Tameka could hire her own nanny for the kids -- but he hasn't paid in months, and now owes $34,000 worth of payments. 

Tameka also claims there has been a "substantial change in [Usher's] income" since they got divorced -- and because of his success, she should get even more money for child support.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Wednesday. Stay tuned ...

I realize these people are celebrities and have more money then us 'common folk' but when these women ask for so much in child support it's sickening! There are so many Mom's out there that would love a fraction of what she is already getting!

OMG, not her SAKS card, the world is going to end, and YES, he does deserve to lose all custody of the children. HEAVY sarcasm here. One true thing, he should be paying child support if he's not, other than that, FRIVOLOUS BS...

I'm sorry but she has a right to ask for more money. Its not about the money either. She clearly states she was suppose to get the kids xmas 2010 & is asking for 2 weeks with her children. Plus being first choice if hes away long, makes sens to me. God forbid a woman ask a man, the father of her children, for help cause then she's a gold digger. Famous people can also marry regular old folks, they're also not gold diggers. For heavens sake she signed a prenup, smh just let the woman get what she wants. I can only imagine what the media thinks of all single/divorced mothers doing what they have to do for their children.

Usher looks like he's a hands on father. You always see pictures with him and his boys, he talks about them in interviews all the time. I highly doubt that a judge will stripe Usher of custody, and omg he took away her saks card the world is coming to an end. Maybe you should'nt expect to live off someone just because he has money. He takes care of his children and thats all that counts. I guess being a gold digger isnt working out for you, huh Tameka.

Tamika should be ashamed of her self! It's obvious she's jealous of his success and she realizes that she lost a good thing. Usher is or appears to be an amazing dad and with all the deadbeat dads out there she definitely should stop what she's doing! Get a life Tameka!

Divorces shouldn't be long and carried out slowly. Both parties usually want a clean break and a chance to move on from the hurt and anger. An attorney will keep the situation professional and help take care of important issues such as custody arrangements, assets and debt responsibilities. The divorce attorney important paper-work and will do their best to give the client a fair fight.

just looking at that woman you could tell she was in it for the money and it's the kids that will suffer, he should get lawyers to put aside the money for the kids in thier names because it don't look like they'll be getting any in the future.

I wouldn't trust Usher to babysit my cat, Patches. First, Usher gets into a fight with a handicapped woman because he parked his car in a handicapped parking spot when he wasn't supposed to, and now this? Plus, Justin Bieber calls Usher his Dr. Phil? God help Justin Bieber.

I knew it, I knew it!!! Just because Usher's career is taking off, this gold digging, hoe is trying to figure out a way to get her hands on his money. I say he takes the kids from her because all she wants is the money. I don't think she cares about those kids at all. The credit card shouldn't have even come up in her LIST of complaints. He needs to get sole custody and have his mom take care of them while he's on the road. It also sounds like she wants to keep her claws in him one way or the other.

What a gold digging pig. She is ugly as sin, looks like a man, and should be happy that any guy would even touch her. She is greedy, nasty, ugly, a liar, thief and a smelly pig.
