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 ...

Ohe noez. She can't be a shopaholic and shop at Saks. She's a grown woman. She is supposed to have everything she needs in life already. And as for the kids? I'm pretty sure they are set for now, as well.

It's very strange that Paris Hilton use pills top avoid pregancy, but dumbass woman can't. Usher now see when you stick that peeep of yours in a dumbass whore woman like this one, That's what you should expect.These whores in the USA are all about money and divorce and media idiots. She didn't hopefully love you, she wanted fame and money. so she trick your brain to knock her up.

This is what happens when a homosexual man marries his beard. Ass-her's (Usher)one and only true love is Bieber. He could not contain himself in the presence of the Biebster. Jus*****ch his body language when he is around Bieber. Case closed

Usher Raymond, you should have listened to your mother. She DID NOT approve of this Tameka, and even you delayed getting married to her. Now look at the mess that's happened.
Tameka already had someone else's children, and then she conceived yours. Poor planning, IMO. Now there will be a lifetime of drama because you selected a materialistic and greedy person to be your spouse.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

It's always money with these women who are married to rich guys. Somehow my husband and myself raised/raising 7 kids on WAAAAYYYY less then $5000 a month and NO nannies. Rich people can keep the money, our kids are fine and so are we. Money would ruin a lot of what we have, love, understanding, patience and the ability to watch our own family grow up.

Lesson to be learned: choose your baby mama very carefully. She was out for a free ride, and she's got it - at least for the next 16 or 17 years. Too bad she can't worry about what's good for her kids instead of taking him to court for not asking her permission for every little thing. Oh, yeah, and cutting up her credit card. Somehow I think that's the critical issue; the visitation is just for show.

And then there are the kids, being batted back and forth like badminton birdies, like so many poker chips, being used for bartering. God help them.

Sounds like USHER should be ushered out of the equation. Also sounds like his Momma is pulling the strings in the background, in an ongoing attempt to alienate the kids from her. Hope the judge smacks Usher down real quick.
