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.

Don't believe the hype. I assure you, she is no different than any other woman.

So let me get this straight... he's already given her everything a greedy gold digger could want (money, travel, kids, etc.) and now she's going to take everything else away from him by getting full custody? Screw that.

He knew she was a golddigging skank when he married her. She played him BUT don't put the kids in the middle. It works like this...the more time she has the kids...the more child support she gets. She's using the kids to get in his wallet(again)!

Its all about the money and a vendetta that she has against the man. I hate women like her. Let the man see his kids. You wasnt acting stupid when he had your crazy ass in the bed laying pipe to that ass. I could see if he was a dead beat dad who didnt do **** for his kids.

This b@#*% is crazy. Why should he have to submit to a drug test? It's okay if he cancels her Saks card. They're divorced. He wants to be in his children's life, so they need to have joint custody! She's making black women look bad. Thats why they leave us and go to white, hispanic women!!

Tameka Foster really should have "quietly" settled her differences with Usher. Whining about a Saks 5th Avenue credit card doesn't make her seem like a very "ATTENTIVE" parent. Perhaps, if she opted to "WORK" rather than "SHOP", people would be much more sympathetic. I hate when people use their children as a means to "BLUDGEON" their former spouses to "DEATH" especially when they contributed "NOTHING" to generating the cash flow that maintains their lifestyles. It only makes you wonder how much of her child support dollars are actually spent on their children???
