Usher

I'm Not Giving My Ex $50,000

to Fight Me in Court!

Usher says there is noooooooo way he is going to foot the bill so his ex-wife Tameka can pay for her legal battle against him ... this according to new documents filed in their ongoing custody case.

As TMZ first reported, Tameka wants Usher to write a check for $50,000 to cover her costs as the two trade legal shots in their fight for custody of their two children.

Usher finds that request absurd ... saying in court docs filed earlier this month that Tameka has consistently defied court orders and filed frivolous motions, like the one trying to force him to take a drug test.

Usher claims he's already forked over 25k for her attorneys and has shouldered the brunt of the financial associated with this case, especially when it comes to their kids.

Bottom line ... Usher feels Tameka's actions "directly harm the best interests of the minor children. Clearly, such actions should not be tolerated, much less rewarded."

A judge has yet to rule.

You have to be one stupid idiot to hand someone over an axe to chop you're own arm off.

He may not want to give his Ex any money but he should at least throw his hairdresser a few dollars to fix that hair of his.

His first clue should have been that NOBODY liked Tameka. This is an expensive lesson, but Usher can afford it.

Usher's out to lunch. As usual. Fairness in the courts means if one party has the ability to pay, and the other one doesn't, then the party who has the ability must foot the bill. That's the way it goes dumbo. Meanwhile see the "Comic Gold" section of Comic Gold section of Familylawcourts.com. Or the "Child Support." Maybe Usher could consider being a better father?

Love you Usher, keep being a clean, healthy example for your children & the billions who love you. Tameka, ship's sailed honey, JUST RAISE YOUR KIDS. You don't need plastic surgery/designer clothes to do this. Get real.
