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 understand her pain, but that child is not usher's son. That is her son and she is Usher's ex-wife, not current. She is living in the past and blamming her trials and tribulations on other's, when she needs to worry about her relationship with Christ for the better of her minor living children.

Even though he was "only" Kyles stepfather, Kyle was still the brother to Ushers 2 sons. Those 2 son are missing their brother- even if they are too young to understand death. They know something is wrong, that their mother is grieving and their brother is gone. This family is damaged forever and hopefully both Tameka and Usher will heal. Tameka is grieving AND angry. Nothing more dangerous.

She is being her natural self people should not be deceived and use the excuse she is grieving for her behavior. She is, has, and always will be a hot mess!!! Unfortunately, people like her never take responsibility for their actions they lash out at others and blame others for their life!!! She is an attention seeker and unfortunately her son dying gave her a platform and she is running with it. She is going to strategically use her son's death to obtain a sympathy custody ruling from the court. I personally questioned the timing of this alleged accident. IJS Usher needs to get some bigger balls and shut her attention whore gold diggin ass down!!!! A bitter self centered woman will stop at NOTHING to get what she wants! I feel sorry Usher ever got entangled with her...I feel bad that this young man lost his life at such an early age but GOD knew what was best. Women like her don't deserve kids!!!!

Wow Tameka is a old scorn wolf. I think she's because she finally had to face the husband she left for Usher with no Usher .
Plus with ex-husband / father of Kile it wouldn't be a good look.

Usher needs go ahead and file for primary custody of his two sons. The more and more Tameka R. tweets the more and more we see why Usher file for divorce from her to get the hell away from her and her out of his life. She's immature and spiteful.
