Judge to Usher

Stepson's Death Will NOT

Delay Custody Battle

8/3/2012 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803_tameka_usher_01The judge in the Usher/Tameka Raymond child custody case has refused to postpone the trial because Tameka's son died -- ruling the trial will resume as scheduled later this month.

As TMZ first reported, Usher wanted to have a court date moved back because he was worried that with the recent passing of Tameka's son ... the court hearing would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for himself, Tameka, and their two minor children.

But Tameka argued Usher was just posturing for the press and his concern was "bogus." She claimed in court papers Usher "visited Kile in the hospital only once" during his 15 days on life support.

A judge in Fulton County, GA has now ruled, saying the case will go on as planned and Usher will once again take the stand. 

The trial will resume on Aug. 13 and is only expected to last a few more days.

Isn't she too busy mourning her son to go to court? Harsh. Most mothers would want to take some time to grieve.

I bet he regrets even meeting this hateful, money grubbing bitch let alone screwing up and having kids with her. She is an ungrateful piece of work- I hope he wins in court- its obvious that she isn't the best person to be raising mentally healthy children.

Tameka should be thankful Usher visited Kyle in the hospital at all. She should also be thankful for the use of Usher's private plane when her son was injured. I am willing to bet that Tameka has/ or will recieve financial assistance from Usher regarding Kyle's hospital bills. Usher likely stayed away from the hospital, and declined to tweet about Kyle, because Tameka was telling the media that Kyle is not Usher's biological son and all the media attention because of Usher was disrespectful to Kyle's biological father. You can't have it both ways. She either wanted Usher to tweet about her son or she wanted the media to stop talking about Kyle in relation to Usher. Make up your mind!

the wrong person died on the prow of that personal watercraft. Too bad Tameka survived her near-fatal cosmetic surgery catastrophe.

Each and every time I read the comments on any story about these two, people are always slamming Tameka. Not that she is perfect, but it blows my mind that everyone forgets that Usher has been a cheater in every relationship he has been in. As far as not postponing the court date, I would feel the same way as her.Why prolong it? I would want it over and out of the way too so I can focus on dealing with my grief and caring for my other children who just lost a brother.
