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.

I feel no sympathy for this dumb dumb. EVERYONE, including his mother, told him not to marry her...but he did anyway. This is the consequence for that bad decision. I bet he won't make the same mistake again. Hard lesson to learn but im sure he learned it.

She is trying to break him down for kicking her to the curb. He won't have to pay attorney fees once the court realize she is bringing all of this for no reason. She is not asking for more child support or anything like that. She wants to take the kids from him because he stop her American Express Black Card. She's a gold digger. Period.

she must be real nuts if she thinks it's going to happen like that, and she probably married him for his money and it didn't work out.

This is what happens when you marry & divorce a gold digger. His mother told him not to marry this tramp in the beginning.

Usher, this is a GIRL giving real woman a bad name. Cut the bitch off she's hijacking you, better still ask for the children you are perfectly capable of raising your son. With her acting so erratic-this should prove she is not capable. She should be shame- exit her 10 minutes of fame is over- Listen to your mother next time... we always know
