Usher's Ex-Wife

I Need $50,000

To Kick Your Ass in Court

2/11/2012 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond is asking the singer to dig his own legal grave -- by handing over $50,000 to cover HER attorney's fees and other legal investments she's made ... to strip him of child custody.

Tameka filed the docs in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia -- asking a judge to force Usher to pay her $15,000 to cover her expensive lawyer fees ... plus an additional $35,000 for other costs.

According to the docs, the other costs in their custody dispute include the retention of various expert witnesses, hiring private investigators, and procuring out-of-state depositions.

Tameka claims she's entitled to the money because of the vast disparity in income between her and her ex -- a disparity that puts her at a disadvantage while she's trying to build her case.

Tameka has been trying to get full custody of the ex-couple's two kids since December -- when she asked a judge to strip Usher of joint custody, citing a laundry list of reasons ... including canceling her Saks 5th Avenue credit card.

Before those two got married, his mama was telling him it was a mistake. Boys, you should always listen to mama.

actually, im getting pretty sick of this "entitled to" sh-t. Her reason of being entitled to money is "hes doing better than me in life"

Divorce is now a "friend-zone with benefits" to women. Seriously, can the law not see how women use marriage, children and status as liable excuses to get money?

Tameka's old ass needs to sit down. She is mad because usher has a new "old" girlfriend and he is not knocking the dust off of that old p***y anymore. Before she hooked up with usher she was a wanna be stylist, a welfare frauder, and a shoplifter. I cannot believe that he chose her to birth his children. Thank God they came out looking okay and that they were not little girls. Otherwise, there was a possibility that the girls could look manly like their mother! Tameka, do us all a favor and go away! Your divorce is over! He is not entitled to do anything outside of what he was ordered to do. There are so many black males in the communities that dont give a sh*t about their kids. You have a man that clearly loves his kids and you are trying to keep him away because he no longer wants your ugly *ss. Girl/Guy/Combo,whatever you are, get your damn head checked!
