Usher & Ex-Wife in Court

Child Custody Showdown

5/1/2012 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond have gotten an ultimatum in their custody war -- they're at the Atlanta courthouse trying to settle it, and if they can't the judge is going to lay down the law.

The singer and his ex-wife showed up to Fulton County Court this morning -- where a judge ordered the couple to try and hash out a temporary custody agreement in private mediation.

They've had all morning to work something out -- but if they don't come to terms soon ... they'll face the judge again this afternoon ... when he'll impose a temporary order, deciding how Usher and Tameka will split their time with their kids.

The order will also address child support.

As we've reported, Usher and Tameka have been fighting over their kids for years -- Tameka wants full custody, claiming he secretly uses drugs. Usher has denied the allegations, asking for an increase in daddy time. The couple currently shares custody.

His mother warned him about her! When are kids gonna listen to their parents! Had he listened, he'd be a happy man right now. : (

typical gold digger..she wants full custody because she wants the money. what is it with these greedy bitches? get a job, make your own money and stop asking men for thousands of dollars because you became accustomed to a lifestyle you didnt have before him.

Throwback kid    

It looks like Usher is in court with his Grandmother! How old is this broad? With all his money that was the best babe he could pull? He must have no game at all. Maybe Ray J could give Usher his leftovers

Tameka Raymond really should "DIAL IT DOWN" several notches. More than likely, she's not going to receive much more than she has now. At the rate she's going, SHE'LL NEVER LAND another wealthy catch like Usher and child support WON'T LAST INDEFINITELY. Dragging him in and out of court for the sake of "GREED" is going to "BACK FIRE" -- "BIG TIME"!!!

His mother told him not to marry or multiply with this old, ugly, used up, gold digger.
She had kids and now with the two with Usher, he , a dummy is paying for Tameka, their two kids and the other thre s well. She wants him to pay her alimony and child support for three.

Poor, poor Mindy ...    

Tameka? I guess it's just family tradition to sit around and come up with the dumbest names possible. Datz wut deez ugly folks do. And I'm sure Usher (dumb name of the year-did his dad love going to movies or something?) wanted to "AXE" the judge a question. He don't wanna' pay out all the benjamins 'cause he ain't did nuthin'!
