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.

She's a gold digger looking for millions more in child support and wanting to hurt him any way possible. What better way to stick it to the ex than to seek full custody of kids you'll leave to the care of nannies that he'll have to pay for.

I followed the case from the time I learned the child was brain dead as I knew what the final of the story would be. I also saw messages that he put ou on the child. Frankly her attitude makes me wonder if she is really the parent to have custody of the children as I see only pure mean comingout of her. Yes her child is dead and she was striking out....why not at herself for letting thekid on the jetski?? I am sure money will help her heal. She needs to STFU as far as this mom and grandmom is concerned

I really do believe her because Usher looks very sneaky. He looks like a big liar. The same way he treated his ex wife is the same way he going to treat this new woman he has now

Her step son is not his responsibility. She couldnt afford to even go see her son and he paid for the trip. He did right by seeing if they could post pone the court date. They would feel sorry for her right now and she would move Usher.

1..that is NOT his son
2. he's not obligated to do anything
3. he shouldve left ur ass wherever u were when he got struck. Oh u forgot that was HIM and NOBODY ELSE who put u on a damn plane to get back to ur son.

i believe her. As a woman that just went thru the same experience its painful to see someone use the death of your child as a attention plead. my prayers goes out to her and may she soon come to peace with this whole war shes in with Usher. its something that u mus go thru to actually know how it feels and its tough and heartbreaking BUT IT DOES HAPPEN !! Im not saying Usher do not care but career wise he will be getting alot of sympathy fans and support if he just publicly play the "hurt and heatbroken" role.

For real!!    

Tameka Raymond, we hated you before you married Usher because of the cut throat sneaky handed way you went about taking him from Chili, we still hated you when you married him, we hate you now that you are divorced, and NOW under these cir***stances - we STILL hate you, EVEN MORE NOW. Go sit your ass down and grieve instead of being vindictive all of the time. Did it ever occur to you that with all your hate and nasty things you have said and done, this is Karma. I am sorry your son died and I am sorry you are the mother.

I have prayed for her for the loss of her son however; I agree with Usher. The case should be postponed due to this situation. I believe he will NOT have a fair position due to the death of her son. Unfortunately the child will not RIP because she and her attorney will use the loss of her son as a weapon to say to the judge that this mother cannot separate her children. I sincerely believe Usher loves his sons and trust me they will NEED their father.

Don't see how tweeting will bring her son back. If he had, she would counter that he violated her privacy. Damn if you do, damn if you do! Usher was never going to win with this lady.
