Usher's Ex-Wife

His Sympathy for

My Dead Son is 'Bogus'

EXCLUSIVE

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 feel for both of them, but you guys have to know he wants HIS kids not HERS. If Tameka won this "battle" she wont even have enough money to support herself + her 3/4 kids + Ushers 2 kids that they had. Usher is the one paying the bills not Tameka

she has some nerve, who sent their personal jet to get her when the accident happen? and as far as him smiling with a guest, some people show greif different form others she never wanted them kids that's why all the fathers has their own kids she just want a pay check. old girl needs a job. find someone else and have more babies, money gold digger. and by the way kile has a good father, usher name was mention toooooo many times instead of his dad who has custody.

I think tameka is the one full of crap. I also think Usher made good points about the court and being fair to someone that just lost a kid. If He thought of the kid as his son when they were married- he may have not wanted to see him on life support.......

If she has one dead kid that doesnt say much about her parenttting skills. she should have been with her son that day not off in another state. usher was nice enough to let her use his jet and then she turns around and says he doesnt care,
she is wats evererythign with givng nothing,
of course usher cared about the kid butits ot his job to tweet about it. she could send her own tweet out!

Kyle is spelled with a "y". What is it with the coloreds always getting the spelling wrong? on this same site yesterday one had named it's offspring destinee instead of destiny. And frankly, I don't buy into that "pick any word and call it a new name" bull**** either. If your parent (and I say parent because w/ the coloreds there's usually only one) chooses a stupid ass name like shawn with any other word in front of it (key, house, door), then it should be stuck with that name, not choose another even dumber one.

Wow, she is awful. If he would have gone to the funeral then she would have criticized him for making it about him. He did the right thing by keeping his distance because it's a really awkward situation that she probably would have misinterpreted for him wanting her back

If I had just lost a child, I would be too grief stricken to worry about some child support at the moment, no matter what the ex-step father is doing at the time. I'm sure Usher chose to give her space anyway. He ws not the biological father and people were going mad because everyone was giving usher too much attention anyway and not Kile's real father. Smh.

This is really, really sad. She has lost her son where is she showing any remorse for the lost of her child.. What is going to be enough to stop her from just being so very mean! Sometimes we never ever try to remove ourselves from the misery we continue to sink in it!!
