Usher

Held in Contempt For

Canceling Ex's Saks Card

Usher
just got bitch-slapped in court -- a judge has ordered him to REOPEN his ex-wife's Saks Fifth Avenue credit card in his name ... after the singer closed the account last year.

The closed Saks card was just one of Tameka Raymond's many grievances in her ongoing custody fight against Usher -- and now, the court has taken her side ... holding the singer in contempt for pulling the plug on her fancy charge account.

Tameka claims she needs the account to do her job as a stylist.

As for the other grievances -- Tameka said Usher owed her cash for the nanny bill ... and continually failed to keep her in the loop about where and when he traveled with the kids.

The court agreed ... and awarded Tameka $1,300 for the nanny.

The judge has yet to determine the ex-couple's custody and support issues.

1. If she is purchasing supplies, why does she need a sax card? Why not just have Usher give her an allowance? Not ideal, but better than letting her potentially ruin his credit.
2. Looks as though her attorneys were smart to have her continue the case so they could use the death of her son for sympathy.
3. When will the judges who preside over celebrity cases stop always trying to make some sort of "example" out of celebrity cases.
4. Why is this contempt when he closed it right after he filed for divorce? Seems his attorney dropped the ball on this one. They should have advised him to reopen it once the story leaked. They should have saw this coming.
5. Maybe the judge just wanted to stop looking at her so he made a rush decision.

what does a credit card has do with the children??? this is so strange to me, and why must he pay back the nannies when Usher gives her money every months. That's not fair that Usher has to pay for unnecessary things.

Freaking RIDICULOUS!!! And that judge is not on his game. She is just wanting to take Usher to the bank, take everything he worked so hard for, and sit on her ass and do nothing. Hate women like that.

Why would he have to keep a charge card open in HIS name for her to do HER job. Doesn't make sense. I know he is sooooo sorry he ever married and had kids by this chick.
