Usher's Ex-Wife

His Sympathy for

My Dead Son is 'Bogus'

8/2/2012 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usher didn't care about his ex-wife's dead son ... blew off his funeral ... and is only PRETENDING to be affected by the tragedy to court sympathy from the media and his fans ... this according to the singer's ex-wife.

Tameka Raymond's lawyer has filed new documents in the couple's bitter child custody war ... slamming Usher ... who asked the court to delay the next hearing in light of the death of Tameka's son, Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.

In his request, Usher claims he's worried the hearing would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children "in the immediate wake of this tragedy."

Usher also claims Tameka would get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son.  Usher fears he could lose custody of the children and believes it would be unfair to him. 

But in docs of her own ... Tameka's lawyer claims Usher is full of crap ... insisting U's claims of suffering "stress and strain" are "BOGUS."

In fact, she claims Usher didn't care about her son at all in his final days -- even though Usher regarded him as a son back when they were married.

"[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once" during his 15 days on life support ... Tameka claims.

She also claims she had begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, "Please pray for Kile" ... but he refused. Instead, Tameka claims, Usher's next tweet was a photo of his own breakfast with the caption, "Breakfast of Champions."

In her docs, Tameka claims Usher's attempt to postpone the hearing is "simply a transparent sham" ... and asks the judge to DENY Usher's request and require him to appear at the next scheduled hearing, set for August 13.

She also claims resolving the custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move forward with her life.

I believe her. I was on another gossip site yesterday and they posted pics of usher walking with a male friend all smiles and laughing. I looked at the pictures and said to myself "why the hell does he look sooooooo happy, thats not normal". Not saying he can't smile a little after the passing but damn he was smiling so hard I could see his gums.

He was never a father to the child. Kile had a father that as far as I know was the custodial parent. Kile's death doesn't change the fact that Tameka is a handful to deal with and really doesn't have much interest in being a parent anyway.

If any of that is true, then he's a sorry son of a bitch. Disgusting.

this iis one angry ex wife...she was wrong to begin with when she began an affair with Usher while married to her two sons father. when a woman begins any relationship in this way--what does she expect? Not saying Usher is an angel either..but Tameka is always pointing the finger at him instead of herself...she is not a nice person either.

Here's a question. Where was his own father? Usher was step father. Or, is this a case of bugging the one with deeper pockets. Sad she lost her son, but she is acting trashy if this is true.

So then... She's counting on a judge's sympathy ruling. Wise move gold digger...
