Usher

Don't Take Away My Kids!

1/2/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Usher
Usher
is firing back at his ex-wife -- insisting he's a good dad who deserves to see his kids ... and NEVER cancelled her Saks 5th Avenue credit card.

TMZ broke the story ... Tameka Raymond asked a Georgia court last month for full custody of their two kids -- claiming Usher has continually dropped the ball as a parent ... failing to get her permission to travel with their kids, hiring nannies without her approval ... the list goes on.

Tameka also claimed Usher callously closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card -- and now she can't take advantage of the "special benefits" the card offers.  

But Usher claims it's all BS -- filing his own response in the ongoing custody battle ... asking a judge to reject Tameka's request for full custody, on grounds her allegations are false.

Usher and Tameka currently share joint physical custody of the kids.

As TMZ previously reported, Tameka has also tried numerous times to get the judge to force Usher to submit to a drug test. So far, no luck.

We reached out to both sides for comment -- so far, no word back. A trial date has been set for February 27.

Just Reading    

I’m curious about “the list that goes on” part of the article. It sounds like Tamika is a control freak using the joint custody of their children as an excuse to dictate and control her ex husbands’ life. Demanding a drug test is “implying” that he’s an addict…if that’s the case she should just come out and say it; otherwise it looks like petty harassment. Enforcing the agreement such as travel outside of the state with the children is one thing, but if she expects a judge to insist that she has a right to have her credit card fueled spending supported in addition to alimony and child support…she just exposed her true intent and real priorities. Petty.

Usher, If you had listened to your mother and not married this gold digging POS you wouldn't be in this mess.

I guess Chilli got the last laugh on your ignorant ass.

Is it against the law to cancel an ex's Saks credit card?
That b^tCh is out of her mind!!! She needs a drug test.

If I was splitting with my wife I'd definitely cancel any credit cards that are in both our names. He'd be a fool to remain liable for her purchases that take place after they are no longer together.

all you people who blame her, you haven't been with a man who acts just like him. do whatever to piss her off even if he made a promise. then when she fights back she is the one who is evil. he knew what he was getting into when he married her and now the chickens are coming home to roost. he may love his kids and want them around, but, lets face it he has a sex life he has keep going on and the kids get in the way, that is why there are instant nannies (?) always know by come watch the kids while i get with this white girl. i believe his ex wife because i had an ex (not rich like him) but doing the same kind of stuff he is doing.

She needs to get her priorities straight, she should be happy he wants to be in the children's lives!!! She is showing less concern about the children because she is trying to keep them away from a loving father, and using them against him to get what she wants. It shows how much of a loving mother she is not!!!

Why do these trashy folks even have kids? None of 'em ever stay married, or together.
