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 ...

his mom warned him!
she was a greedy con artist-before he married her
older than him, has other kids-and a criminal record!
what was he thinking ---marrying a thug---now he has to put up w/ her
for 18 years!

once she is getting support she is entitled to let her get her own credit cards!
nothing more nothing less! they share kids --as opposed as her selling him time to them!

If she was as concerned with her children as she was with getting her man hands on that drink in the pic,she would stop trying to use those kids to control their dad. In the end the children are the ones getting hurt by this nonsense. As far as the credit cards go,he should of ended that immediately. As a woman it kills me when a certain type of female thinks they can sink their claws in someone, have kids, and that's their meal ticket for the rest of their life. Is she harrassing her other kid(s) father(s)? Probably not! Tip of the Day: GET A JOB!!!

Everyone told him not to marry this woman. I remember all the yelling he did about people saying nasty things about her. This is a perfect example of "I-told-you-so"

First of all any woman that leaves her first children for fame and money needs to not be able to have the privileges she's asking for. She was less than a mother then and all she wants now is more for herself than her children (by Usher). As far as she's concerned it's all about the money and herself.

This battle is NOT about the children but ALL about how much cash she can get.

So nobody picked up on the fact that HE has primary custody of the kids. That should be enough right there to tell her to get her gold digging behind on. It would be different if she had the kids and wanted to keep them in the style to which they've become accustomed (same house, school, activities,etc.), but this is just gold digging at his finest. Never would've happened if he didn't have anything to sing Confessions about.
