Usher

Breaks Down in Court

Over Bad Dad Allegations

Usher
broke down in tears today in an Atlanta court -- after his ex-wife's attorney insinuated he cares more about partying than he does about his children.

Usher was on the stand for hours today in his ongoing custody trial with his ex Tameka Foster -- and during questioning, Tameka's lawyer whipped out photos of the singer partying in Europe in February.

Usher's fighting for more custody with his kids -- but Tameka's lawyer was trying to prove he'd rather go wild at a nightclub than be a good dad.

Usher was also grilled about his alleged drug use. The singer admitted to smoking pot in the past, but when the subject turned to his alleged ecstasy use Usher's lawyer objected.

Usher insisted he never used drugs in front of the children -- an allegation Tameka made early in their custody fight -- but hedged on the subject of seeing his children while under the influence.

The trial will continue tomorrow.

Who cares what this idiot does, he's a s*** bag of a person and I'm sure as a father he's the same.

Looks too fake.


Her Lawyer asked questions. He stated he never did drugs in front of his kids. were you ever intoxicated when wtth you kids. Lawyers next question have you ever been under the influence when with your kids. A simple yes or no answer. Hesited. That goes a long way. The hanky, tears goes right out the window.

"Usher broke down in tears today in an Atlanta court -- after his ex-wife's attorney insinuated he cares more about partying than he does about his children."...And he probably does. The African American community isn't 75% fatherless because he and his bro's are great daddys and even with all their money and fame and what not they still shirk their family obligations until their azzes are dragged into family court.... nothing new here....

It's a sad thing to have oto fight in court to see your own kid, I feel Usher pain, I hope it works out for him and he can get this behind him, Women who end uo hating there ex should not bring the kid into it, it takes two have one..Good luck Usher, I wish you well my friend...

I luv u RPattz!    

Leave Usher alone. If he's partying when the kids are not with him is ok....if he's blowing off the kids to party - than that's wrong. I doubt Tameka stays at home with the kids.

Her Attorney says Usher cares more about partying than he does loving his kids when in reality his client, Tameka cares more about hurting Usher than she does loving their kids. She is not in court because she gives a fk about him spending time with them, no, she is doing this because she has lost control of someone who doesn't want her and this is her only means of control.

Tameka: Bad relationships are not guns and children are not bullets.
