Usher & Ex-Wife in Court

0501_usher_tameka_court_today_01
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.

She need to stop that life is to short to be so ignore. They is not going to give her all that man money. She has 2 other kids that are not his. What wrong with her. She must be crazy. The judge should tell her to never show up in that court any more for child support and custody. She is one stupid woman. She should love her kids. She all about money.and let that has those kids too. I no those judge are tried of them. I am tried of hearing it.

Finally we have a brother trying to be a part of his kids life and the woman behaves like a fool.Tameka should be ashamed.Usher you should have listened to your Mommy.She gives mothers a bad name.Listen girl,if he don't want you ,get over it.Do not punish the kids for your issues.Move on,it is over.Second he is not tied to the kids he isn't the father too so be grateful he sent a plane,most men after what you have done would have sent a bus ticket.You got paid but now you are scaring away any hope for another Man because of your bitterness.Those kids will come to resent you if you do this to their father.Maybe he would have given you more money if you would treat him with some respeect.You need a real girlfriend to tell you the truth,he only married you because his mommy said no.Now he wants to be a grown man,let him go and sleep at night.
