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 dont know these people personally, but reading the story "several times over & over again" put me on the fence. so i rather see what the judge say on this one b/c he can see them face to face. request to hear from ppl close to both sides of families on the characters of tameka as a woman/mother & usher as man/father well. like the black man in that movie courageous "a part of being a man is about taking responsibility, any fool can make a baby". so what is really holding tameka back? i am a black woman & i have a few guy friends who r good men, good job, etc but the mother really dont love her kids, she loves that lifestyle, & give that man hell all the way! that may not appear to be the case here that's why i want to see what the judge say.

IT appears that TAMEKA WAS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY IN THE BEGINNING AND END. GOD HAS AWAY OF getting our attention. Sorry for her son's death but she needs to stop all this drama before something else happen. U no longer with the man, get a life, go to work, get ur own money stop begging, lying and being trashy. Be a lady.
