Tameka Raymond

I Will Appeal

The Custody Decision

8/26/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_tameka_usher_getty
Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond is PISSED over her recent loss in court and believes the ruling could be the result of a biased judge ... so she's gearing up to file an appeal, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Tameka lost a hard-fought custody battle on Friday when a judge ruled in Usher's favor and granted primary custody of their two young children to the singer.

But sources close to Tameka tell TMZ, she feels the ruling was unfair. We're told Tameka recently found out that Usher's lawyer's law firm threw an election fundraiser back in 2008 for the judge who presided over the trial ... and she feels that connection may have influenced the ruling.

According to the campaign contribution report for Judge Lane, the law firm that represented Usher raised $1,278 for Lane in March 2008.

Sources tell us ... Tameka is baffled by the decision because she argued in court that Usher is constantly on the road, where as she has the more stable schedule ... thus it makes no sense to give him primary custody.

We're told Tameka wants to fight the decision ASAP and is interviewing lawyers for an appeal.
 
We reached out to the judge for comment, but so far no word back.

You lost custody because you suck a being a mother, not because of personal schedules.

She is one of the most disgusting ghetto whores I have ever scene. She creates this big ghetto scene out in front of her house in front of her children, where she throws a plate at the car screaming obscenities in the street; she accuses her ex-husband of using drugs and pills; because of her negligence as a parent her son was killed in a boating accident and she wonders why the judge gave custody to Usher.

I think Usher will make a great father. She should be glad he wants to play a role in their lives.

when she lost her two children to Ryan Glover did she give him a hard time also? Maybe Usher should hire the lawyer that helped Ryan Glover get full custody of his children, being that they already know why she lost that case to begin with.

This is what happens when you wife a gold-digger. They know that after this it's back to the streets again, so they'll fight tooth and nail for the money. Both God and Usher took her kids, you would think she gets a hint.

I wish this woman would grow up. I really don't believe she would be fighting this hard if Usher was broke. It's all about Money. She appears to have some mental issues for reason, and I'm sure that trumps any schedule.

3) YOU INTERFERE IN USHER VISITATION RIGHT TO SEE HIS CHILDREN


YOUR BITTERNESS AND HATRED TOWARD YOUR CHILDREN FATHER IS NOT IN THE "BEST" INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN!!!!

That is just not ok. She just lost her son and now a judge grants primary custody of her 2 sons to Usher? Now I've never been a Tameka fan, at all, however this Woman just lost her son and now she loses custody of her other 2? That's just sad. What kind of judge would do that? :( At least give her joint custody, she just lost her son!

Why would she think that her ex-husband would want her have custody of their 2 boys, when her past behavior shows she would poison their minds against their father, who is also supporting them AND her! She's despicable!
