Usher's Ex-Wife:

You Don't DESERVE Our Kids

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

Usher and Tameka Raymond
Usher
'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 think on this case parents should care for they kids what is the best for them and stop to traumatism they kids ,if they children love their daddy's things should stay like that a lots man suffer to don't see their kids and fight custody battle for their kids but when a judge make a decision already they should respected ,on this case usher have his legalle tutelle parent to excerce to his kids they kids love him and they are ok when you see them things should stay like that then traumatism they kids for money ,parents need to stop aggravated they children like that all kids deserve to be happy for the family they already have and just keep it this way and stop. tameka already have three boys that enough to take care waiting they graduated at school to see if those children she gave them a good education or not for now leave usher take care they two other the best he can and stop to traumatism they children.

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 hope the judge throws the book at her bc she has lost the best part of her mind. She is using the kids to keep control over him..sorry boo boo but they are your children not a tool to interfere with his life.. get a job you had one when you met him and move on the bitter card is pathetic...

Usher, don't be cheap. This just makes you look cheap. Do what you can to help the mommie out. It won't hurt you or take anything away from you that you will miss. Clean this up, proto!

Biotches like this make me sick!! And how exactly could HE have closed YOUR Saks account? If he can close it, then it really wasn't yours, Tameka!! Furthermore, you're not entitled to any money the man made before he married you and after he divorced you!!! Get a freaking life and take care of your damn self!!!

Well...sounds like Momma was right all along in not likeing this woman and believing her to be a gold digger. Usher is at fault if he's not paying his child support but to actually say that you want more money because he's making more since he left your azzz is just ghetto gold diggin at its finest. I always knew this was gonna happen. She was a lot older than him, worked him good while she "worked for him" and did a good job of separating him from his mom for awhile. Glad that he's come to his senses, but wow....this is gonna get messy for the kids. Doubt this dumb beyotch thinks about that since she seems so focused on the money.

Why should he trust you? You snuck off to some foreign country and almost died having plastic surgery, also you have 3 or 4 other kids why should Usher have to pay for all of your brood?
