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.

I could see you calling the judge biased if you didn't get your credit card reopened. But the judge gave you what you wanted, then the judge gave usher what he wanted. You wanted the credit card and the nanny paid, he wanted the kids. I say it's even. Go shopping and then go on vacation. At least now your free to do your favorite things.

And you will lose again. You're the same woman that abaondoned her other children to chase behind Usher. You're the same woman that left one of those abandoned children with your friend EVERY weekend for THIRTEEN years. The same woman that scoffed at joint custody and an increase in child support. Now you gets NOTHING! btw.. good luck with finding another mansion to live.

Other than bunch of losers riding Usher because he is rich... what has this woman done to have her kids taken away?


i can't wawit to hear court evidence. I don't see why a judge would take kids away from a MOM.

Tameka, the appeal will not do you any good; use your little gold digging brain, you do not have custody of your first set of kids.......and you do not want the second set, you are concerned about the money. If Usher had listened he would not have been with your old ass in the first place. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE CHILDREN AND NO MORE MONEY.....................lol

This woman has some serious issues....Usher should have ran like Forest Gump after the first wedding was canceled...the signs were there...This crazy orangutan refused to invite her own mother to the wedding because she didn't have any teeth and lost her false teeth ones...She had a sercet criminal past..even her half sister said Usher didn't have any idea who he was marrying..she was involved with a married durg dealer when she was 14.. she had her first child when she was a teenager..which by the way she had 3 kids already when she married Usher...her second husband the father of two of her kids is a tv ececutive who is also the father of the son that past away she didn't drag him throught the court or try to slander his name or reputation... maybe because he knew what kind of scandalous triffling whore she really was...the drug dealer she was messing around with was gunned down execcution style...she has been arrested for petty theft and welfare fraud...this bitch was **** and loaded from the start..and she is a very shrewd con artist ... this is why people should do background checks on people they want to spend the rest of their lives with or any kind of connections with what so ever....

Tameka sit down and grieve the lost of your son. And focus on the proper raising of your other children. You know Tameka, there's nothing wrong with working and being a productive memeber in society. Instead of running around being hateful. Just go sit down!

HAHAHAHAHA Tameka cannot twork it out (Usher's money) anymore she has to WORK! Ol' girl you will not get a motion for appeal to overturn Judge Lane's ruling. All the sh*t you flung Usher way as come back in your face. That's how God works. Usher has primary custody of his sons and you have nothing! Oops other than Saks coochie card. You'll be blessed if Usher allows you to continue living in his mansion in Roswell after Sept 1. If it were any other man you Tameka would of have been out on the street long before em 'papers' were finalized. Move with your life! Stop using your sons, em babies are not a paycheck!
