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.

So glad that he seems to take fatherhood so seriously...But this business of parents trying to take the kids away from each other because of their own beef is wack. Kids need both parents. For this kids' sake, learn to have a functional relationship.

When wil lwe stop tearing each other up. If we think a person is half good for personal reasons spouses, friends, and /or family give stories that are awful.. When will men/women stop saying and doing thing make spouses look bad so they can get what they want. The old saying is when you live with trash you get and become trash.

She wants the kids so she can get more child support from him. This is not at all about the boys it is about revenge. She knows he love the boys and she is using this as a weapon to keep control of him. He has another woman does not help matters either.

Now maybe he realizes why everyone was SO against him marrying her to begin with and why they wanted him to stay away from her. He should have listened. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...or jealous, or bitter... you get the drift.

This is beyond stupid. If you can't take a divorce, then don't get married. This two needs to figure out what's best for the kids, not for themselves. Honestly, woman... I'm sure he does care for the kids and has enough money to support them. You can care for yourself.
