Tameka Raymond

I Will Appeal

The Custody Decision

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.

She tried to ruin the reputation of the hand that feeds their children by accusing him/Usher of using drugs. She told the judge that Usher needed to be tested for drugs, that's blackmail if you ask me andit's unjustified threats that she made.

If I were running for judge and some L.A. attorneys threw a "fund-raiser" for me that only netted $1200, I would RULE AGAINST them every time they appeared before me. That's damned insulting!

She didn't lose them, she GAVE them away. Besides, Glover wasn't rich why would she want his kids around? Hoodrat Meek Meek is very transparent, she wants THOSE kids because of the money they bring in. If Usher was nobody, yes, he would be able to raise his kids in peace.


NOW, THAT SAYS A LOT!!!!!


WOW!!

Her decision to appeal is Classic illiterate Ghetto baby mama mentality. They NEVER pause to reflect.....it's always the man's fault. She should truly be encouraged to continue to throw away her money with pointless lawsuits and appeals unless and unless she is paying the lawyers "in kind"...which probably is worth nothing especially after 5 babies and countless entries by Big D Ryan , Usher and others. She will wind up destitute in a year or two, just like those like her who preceded her.

of course she will - it doesn't cost her anything since Usher has to pay her (and his) lawyer fees so she's got absolutely nothing to lose.

I seriously doubt a judge is going to risk his career for a $1,278 donation 12 years ago.

Maybe Usher should appeals the saks card since she's still trying to fight him in court. She's only wasting his money since he's probably the one paying for it. Stop feeling sorry for her because it's obvious that she's not feeling sorry for you.

Tameka is also interviewing lawyers for her appeal and if her appeal is granted and lose again then she will claim that Usher paid off her lawyers to cause her to lose yet again.


Keep Usher in y'all prayers while he is going through craziness with this unstable female.
