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.

Usher's Mother warned him about this woman. Most Mothers know best. She is fighting with everything because she is broke. He should've stayed with Chili.. She loved him for HIM and not his money

You know for a real 'MAN' to expose himself and breakdown in front of the whole world and show the love you must have for your son's is remarkable and commendable to me. I am a woman and I know the games we (some) women play when we can't have what we want we use our children which is sad. The fact of the matter is when it's 'OVER' ITS OVER, one thing about life is that our children grow up and it's how we raise them that makes the difference. When women claim that all men are DOGS where were you barking to attract this DOG?????????? Come on SISTAHS let's stop using our children as pawns. While making the babies when he asked what's my name...Did you say DOG
