Usher's Ex-Wife

Appeals Custody Ruling

I Got Screwed

Usher
's ex-wife Tameka Raymond is making good on her promise to fight a court order stripping her of child custody of their two children.

We broke the story ... Tameka lost an arduous custody battle last week when a judge ruled in Usher's favor, awarding him primary custody of their two young boys.

Tameka vowed to appeal the decision ... by filing a motion for new trial on grounds the judge was biased in Usher's favor.

Tameka claims the judge has a strong tie to Usher's lawyer, claiming the attorney was personally responsible for nearly half of the contributions to the judge's re-election campaign in 2008.  What's more ... Tameka alleges Usher's lawyer served on the judge’s re-election campaign committee.

Tameka also insists NO evidence was presented showing she couldn't take care of her kids.

Tameka also claims there was clear evidence of Usher's "past, current, and future inability" to care for the kids.

The judge hasn't ruled on her motion.

I guess he doesn't really care that his ex just lost one son to a tragic accident and now you're going to put her thru having to give up her 2 younger kids that she gave birth to. That's really empathy. Why not joint custody ? WOW Money , fame and connections speak loud and clear. If he wasn't "usher" would this have been so easy.
Usually in family court mothers won't lose full custody of the kid especially if the other parent has such extreme obiligations that would take the kids away from a normal life style. I hope Tameeka's appeal goes in her favor .

Usher's ego really has him in a place of arrogance. So far gone that he'd take the kids from the mother that brought them into the world. What a selfish little boy. I wish Tameeka all the best in her appeal. This guy has no class. Spoiled little whiner.

There must be something going on with her that isn't known to the public but is known to the judge. Isn't this the second time a judge has given primary custody to the dad instead of her? And the other dad isn't famous. It's very sad for her, but maybe safest for the kids.

Usher's fame has given an ultimate ego. How could you still go thru with taking a mother's child/children away from her when she tragically just lost a child. He's an arrogant , selfish little guy (mama's boy). I hope the boys aren't raised in the same manner( oops maybe not they won't have the luxury of being raised by the woman that gave birth to them). Money, fame, and connections speak very lound, they even make you disregard your ego. Why not joint custody? Not enough for the brat that wants what he wants. Still a little boy with big money. My heart goes out to Tameeka. She's lost 3 sons in one year. People only see the celeb status of usher not the fact that she has to go thru the loss. I hope Usher's happy now he does get what ever he whine's for. What a man.

Once she realized Usher really didn't want her anymore she should have played her cards differently. Instead of spitting on his girlfriend and throwing a plate a the car the were in, she should have invited them both in a offered them dinner. That way should could have stayed in the mansion, kept her sons and got her child support. Now she has to figure out where she's going to live, where her boys are at, and where shes going to work. SMH.

I pray her motion for retrial is DENIED! Judge didn't need to excuse or remove himself just because he was campaigning to rerun for Fulton County Supreme Court Judge in 2008. Neither was Usher's attorney obligated to tell Tameka that their office raised campaign funds for judge who resided over her and Usher's custody case.

Clear evidence was presented in court testimony from multiple individuals that she lacks the emotional capacity to bond with the children. Otherwise if there was clear evidence on Usher's "past, current, and future inability" to care for his kids why in the hell would she go have kids with him in the first place?
