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.

Tameka I know you have been through much more than we all have heard or seen in the news, newspapers, magazines, and online. My prayers truly go out to You, Ryan, your Children, Family, and sincere friends. I can tell by following your messages that Kile was an awesome son. I just want you and your family to continue to find strength in the Lord and continue to hold your head up and be the strong woman that you have always been. Don't let your ex-husband's antics get to you. You figured him out a long time ago. This is nothing new. He is showing his "True Colors." My mother use to tell me that people treat you the same in life and in death. Although this must be most painful for you while you are grieving the death of your son, you must push forward and continue on your journey. You have a lot of unfinished business. Settle your custody battle and focus on you and your children only. Keep moving with your businesses and put everything in God's hands and you will be alright. Take care and God Bless you and your Family!

She has not learned anything - you don't mess with God's people. She is such a demonic woman. Why wasn't she with her son when he had the accident?

I believe Tameka and wish her the best. I always thought Usher was playing the media for his own benefit

Usher you have not had a hit CD since Confession --that was the last CD I purchased and plan to purchase none in the future. You should be ashame of yourself.

You may be riding high now, but God do not like ugly and you weap what you sow, beleive that.

Where was his biological father? Why did she want Usher to tweet to about her son? She has to bipolar. She is a stupid bitter woman. Instead of coming together to work things out since your son just loss his life, she is picking fights and battles. The judge should throw his gavel right at her nose and break it.

So when was it his responsibility to do all of this for a child that wasn't even his..?? Where was the real father...maybe he is the one who should be tweeting the prayer request. Sounds like she is drumming up sympathy by having a celebrity tweet it for her. Probably the same reason she laid on his bed too...because he is famous..!! I am very sorry for her loss....I can't even is tragic...but jesus a bridge and get over it...!!!! Take care of your other children instead of bitching about what someone hasn't done for you!!!

YOU FREAKING WITCH, TAMEKA. The dirt can't settle on Kile's grave good before you start your crap!!
You've already destroyed one child's life, now you are going to destroy two others.
Usher FLEW your haggy ass on a private jet there and stood by your side even after all you had done for him. Your ACTIONS after your son's funeral only shows what a SELFISH, PSYCHO, woman you are.
HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR KILE!!! Stop trashing his brother's father and PUT YOUR FOCUS ON GETTING JETSKI LAWS PASSED instead of spending 99 % of your time in the courts with a father who loves his children and loved your son, too.
