Usher Raymond's Ex-Wife

LOSES CUSTODY WAR

Usher
's ex-wife Tameka Raymond just lost in the former couple's bitter custody battle -- TMZ has learned, a judge has awarded Usher primary custody of their two sons.

It's a shocking development -- considering both sides were trying to strip each other of custody. Tameka felt the singer was an absentee father who was too absorbed in his career to be a good dad. She also accused him of using drugs in front of the kids.

Usher argued Tameka was inattentive and irresponsible.

The ruling marks the end of an emotional custody trial -- involving wild accusations and name-calling ... Usher even broke down at one point on the witness stand.

But today, we're told a judge sided with the singer -- awarding Usher primary custody of the ex-couple's two sons, which means the children will be spending the majority of the time with their father.

Tameka still retains some custodial rights -- but the extent to which Tameka will be able to see her kids is unclear.

She is reaping what she sowed. She should have been easier to deal with and been more willing to work with Usher to share their children.

Usher has proven to be a good person. The judge could have seen through all her lies and accusations. I am glad he got custody.

OMG! I am so sad for her...she just lost three kids in one month...the evidence against her must be real bad. I don't know a judge that would ever take children from a mother and especially one that just lost a child.

A Fulton County Judge did this to a Gold Digging Party Whore Wife of a guy who worked for me. She always sounded just like Tameka. Jerry's wife who we warned him not to marry from the beginning, just like Usher's mother's did, actually told that she wanted a Lexus over her daughter's Child Support. The Judge gave Jerry who worked for me the daughter. Sound's like the Judge did the same thing, gave Tameka who damn Sak's credit card, that is what she was really interested in anyways, and gave Raymond the kids. It also helped him that she was out of town and not around when her older son was killed up on the Lake. Usher then made sure to fly her in town and all she did was dish him.

Go Judge.!!!

Either way the kids are being being hurt in the process. But I am glad the judge sided with Usher...Tameka tried everything. She accused him of doing drugs, abusive and wanted a payday...Judge seen what everyone else seen a very emotional and unstable person at this time. He being Usher was willing to put this aside but she wanted to continue the fight....I think this was a good decision for the time being.

Wow, for once a court actually did the right thing. We all know all she was out for was the check book. I am so sick of women, who use their kids in order to get more money. As Judge Judy said, you had children with this person, anytime you bash that person, you are bashing 1/2 of who that child is. And before her one son is barely in the ground, she was back at bashing Usher, who sent his own plane to pick her up so she could be by his side. She is one heartless Biatch. Full of hate and bitterness, and concerned more with her Saks card, then her kids. Wasn't she getting plastic surgery at one point, and had a bad reaction or something down in South America??? Where were her kids then? You Go Usher!!!

Harvey, does this leave him exempt from paying her any child support? Now isn't she liable to pay the child support to HIM? I doubt he would pursue it, but technically her could right?
