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.

Tameka Foster is Usher’s ex, a cougar who initially infiltrated the singer’s world as his “manager” her children with him were her guarantee of a cut of his fortune. Her real concern is about sharing more custody with Usher and losing some of her financial gains.

Good job, Mama Bear. Usher is so used to money-grubbers kissing his azz for a piece of him, that he thinks he can control everyone. He is only challenging Tameka because he is used to having his way, but everyone knows that party animals don't want to be parents.

When love GOES BAD, the people involved will sometimes try to hurt each other out of GUILT. We as the public and his FANS have to support them as a parents of TWO children who will be affected by the outcome; no matter WHO FEELS that they came out on top. Its too bad that this had to be made public. Many celebs go through divorces/custody batteles, this should have stayed private. It obvious hes HURTING

Usher should have learned from Michael Jackson. If a gay man wants kids he should hire a good lawyer first.
