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.

Can we say that she hates this man, so I'm just wondering why a man that you hate needs to pray for your son. Has she forgotten that she beat his cursed his girlfriend? Tameka is a piece of work. She should have been asking his father to pray with her for their son.

OMG! Usher and Tameka are adults. Their behaviors affect the children and that is all that matters. I read everything, not just one article & both adults are acting very selfish and immature. Keep the siblings together, they have already lost fathers/stepfathers thru divorce and now a brother thru a tragic accident. They do not need to lose each other and their mother now. That would be another tragic event.

Wow, Really? Where is her son's father? I truly believe that karma took place. She has been so bitter and evil to Usher for ending the marriage. What real mother is worried about a saks credit card while trying to get full custody of her sons? Bitter money hungry lady.

You would think losing a child, would give her some clarity on what's important. But I guess not. I had a feeling she wouldn't get it though. What a bitter old bitch.
