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.

This greedy hefferina is full of herself. Marrying her was probably the biggest mistake Usher has ever made

For all you guys that are hating Tameka - has never dealt with a narcissist - and I pray that you all dont. This is exactly the type of behavior that they protray.."acting like they care" if usher was any type of human with feelings he would have been at the funeral to be there for his two sons at their brothers funeral and not only that but he was once apart of Kile's life and he should have showed his respects to the rest of Kiles family. It's a damn shame that these people walk around like the sun shine and rise on their ass and shame on you all who think Tameka is being horrible and a bitch. Read between the damn lines.

This lady has a problem. I find it hard to believe any man would be happy some's child dead. He may want her dead, I can understand why.

Where was the child biological father?

Very tacky from this woman. Just the other week I read the ex husband chartered her a plane so she could be with her son that was injured , she came out saying she was most thankful and now she's airing their dirty laundry in public thats a low blow. I don't why these men keep picking the wrong women

This deceased child, Kile, had a father...he wasn't Usher. Why are the media and Tameka acting like he has no father-figure in his life besides Usher?

Why the hell would she press him to "Tweet" about her dying son? WTF is that? Usher is her EX HUSBAND and Kile wasn't even his stepson anymore much less his real son; I'm sure he was sympathetic, but he's clearly moved on and loves his boys. Tameka's just a bitter ex.

Dear Tameka, you & your lawyer are both crazy. That is not his child & he is not obligated to do ANYTHING for him. If you were a respectable woman, you would've just said "no, lets move forward with this so I can move on with my life" but instead you take the vindictive route. Get over Usher, stop being a ghetto money grubber, & focus on your other children. They are grieving as well. Now I see why his mother hated you & he is divorcing you. Because even in a sad time in life, you are still evil. Thank you.

Will someone please tell me "WHY" was this "DELUSIONAL HARPY" so concerned about having her ex attend "HER" son's funeral than MOURNING HIS LOSS!!! It wasn't Usher's "RESPONSIBILITY" to say "ANYTHING" regarding what happened to "HER" SON!!! The poor child had a FATHER HE LIVED WITH "FULL TIME"!!! Tameka Raymond needs to "GET HER PRIORITIES IN ORDER" for the SAKE OF THE REST OF HER CHILDREN!!! She had a life "BEFORE" she met Usher Raymond and he's "MOVED ON" WITH HIS!!! LADY, GIVE IT A REST!!!

Guilty!!! He should give her whatever she wants. Why? Because HE is responsible for giving justin beiber his break, for bringing him to America and teaching him how to behave like a thug, look like a girl and sing like a frog. I will never ever forgive him for that despicable act. He deserves everything that woman does to him, it still wouldn't be as torturous as what he has done to us with justin beiber.
