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.

You can only worry about your own reaction to tragedy, you don't get to dictate others' behavior or decide how much they care or not based on how well their actions satisfy you.

Her kid's dead and she can't stop with this angry display? Funny, she doesn't mention te fact that he chartered a plane so she could get to her son as quickly as possible. Or that he was at the hospital for days after he got there. He acts like a good man and she is complaining about tweets? Nice to see that her tragic loss has helped put things into perspective. If she were any kind of mother, she would be concerned about the emotional state of her surviving children, not focusing on getting back into court ASAP. Give those boys to Usher and keep them away from her toxicity.

This woman is crazy! Usher paid for kile's medical treatment and when kile got hurt she paid for her flight to be with her son and he rushed there. If he didn't care he wouldn't have done those things for her. People grieve differently, what is he supposed to do sit in the hospital for 15 days crying and then go home and continue? No he has a life too and yes even though this is a sad and tragic event eventually everyone needs to get on with their lives. Sitting and crying isn’t going to make kile come back.

She's a NASTY, money-grubbing WH0RE. Who is this old, used up, dried hag to throw stones?!!!? She's OBVIOUSLY using the death of her son, who, had she been there, might NOT be dead, to get ANY and EVERY thing she can outta Usher. Men, DON'T marry your WH0RE!!!!

He needs to hook-up with Kanye and do a Gold Digger re-mix.
They don't need any video girls, just run clips of them two jezebels in the background.

I just reread the article. I hope the judge gives her what she asks for: a decision NOW, that considers her misdirected anger and inability to separate her own feelings from the needs of the children. Sole custody to Usher. Mandated mental health care and supervised visitation for her. . . . In a perfect world.

Gold digger or not.. He wouldn't tweet prayers to Kyle? Even Justin Bieber tweeted prayers to Kyle.. but Usher was too good for that? Don't have to be his father to be at least human.

Even after this horrific tragedy, Tameka still doesn't get it. SHe's still a gold digging HO who only cares about herself & herself only!!! Focus all of this energy on your remaining children, you B!!!
