Usher to Ex-Wife

YOU LOST THE KIDS

... Get Over It

Usher is firing back at his ex-wife in their bitter custody dispute -- claiming her "vile" attempts to regain custody of their children are an insult to the justice system.

As we reported, Usher emerged victorious after an arduous custody trial with his ex Tameka Raymond, in which the judge awarded Usher primary custody of the couple's two sons.

Tameka filed papers asking for a new trial -- on the grounds the judge had received campaign contributions from Usher's lawyer and was biased as a result -- but Usher says that's BS.

The singer filed his own response on Wednesday asking the court to deny Tameka's request, claiming her motion is "an assault on the integrity of the court." 

According to the docs, Usher believes Tameka is delusional, claiming if she were granted a new trial, it would be grounds for a reversal of ALL trials where a lawyer had contributed to a judge’s campaign.

Usher claims the motion "constitutes a continuum of [Tameka's] vile and unsupported claims that every person who dared testify against her ... is biased and tainted."

A judge has yet to rule on the matter.

FACINGREALITY    

This is a female judge, who was aware of the contribution as well as the fact that Tameka had just buried a child. No female, in her right mind - unless there was a justifiable reason - would take the children away unless there was a just cause. This judge would have had to know that the case would be scrutinized and so for her to make the decision she did leads me to believe that her reasoning was appeal proof. I doubt seriously that she would allow a couple of thousand dollars in contribution end her career in such a way. So I'm more apt to believe that Tameka protests are going to fall on deaf ears. Lets be reminded that this wonderful 'mother' is the same woman that had a very public affair with Usher whilst married to her other sons father w/o one iota of concern to any of their feelings. Tameka is facing her Karma moment.

I don't know what is more of an assault on the integrity of the court, Being a judge and knowing you accepted money from the lawyers of person you ruled for, OR being lawyers and knowing the judge in your case accepted money from you, I would say the judge. because we all know most lawyers lie.

she deserves another hearing based ONLY on this being a conflict of interest, this has nothing to do with how bad Tameka or Usher are as parents, it is strictly a CONFLICT OF INTEREST AND IT DESERVES ANOTHER HEARING.

ANOTHER HEARING/TRIAL!!!!!


HELL NO!!!!!


ALL CHILD CUSTODY CASES ARE BASED ON THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN!!!!


TAMEKA LOST BECAUSE OF HER INTERFERENCE OF THE OTHER PARENT RIGHT TO SEE HIS CHILDREN AND HER VIOLENT BEHAVIOR TOWARD THEIR FATHER!!!!!


NOW, IF YOU THINK THAT A PARENT SHOULD HAVE PRIMARY CUSTODY BASE ON THOSE TWO FACTS!!!!!


THEN,YOU PEOPLE ARE GUILTY OF SUPPORTING CHILD ABUSE !!!!!


NO CHILDREN SHOULD BE USED AS A PAWN IN A MESSY CHILD CUSTODY CASE!!!!!


EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO GROW UP IN A NON VIOLENT ATMOSPHERE!!!!


PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!!

There's no basis for motion for a retrial, Tameka's lawyer and Usher's lawyer offices both contributed separately to Judge Lane's campaign reelection! Judge Lane made a sound decision -after reviewing all of the evidence- regarding custody of Usher V and Naviyd. Tameka is trying to save face with demanding motion for a retrial. She needs to accept the fact she LOST primary custody of boys and move on with her life as she stated after judge denied the court proceeding after her son Kile's death,

Tameka cannot have the boys, Saks card, the mansion and increase in child support. She had all those blessings and tried to play Usher with blocking when he could see his children after their divorce was finalized but her scheme backfired in her face. Just because a woman endures 16 to18 hours of labor, an epidural or not and possibly ripping and tearing during labor does not mean she should automatically be entitled to primary custody of the children she carries and delivers. Children should go to the parent capable of providing them a safe nurturing environment regards rather primary parent hires a nanny or not to look after the kids. I pray the judge reaffirms their initial ruling. Those boys do not need be shuffled back and forth.

this is what i dont get..YOU DIDNT FIGHT FOR YOUR OTHER KIDS so why you trying for those? this wasnt the first time u were denied custody...why the change? And to those siding with her, that statement alone should be a red for yall. But im guessing ur like, "oh the kids really really wanted to stay with their dad so thats why."

That is stupid. People contribute to whomever they choose and its insane to think a lawyer who supports a judge should never win a case because they politically support a candidate. He can offer his kids a better quality of life than she can and all she would do if she had custody would is get a nanny, spend his money, make him jump through hoops to be a dad, and look for a another rich man to marry. She shouldn't be alloweed to have those kids after her child due to her neglect. If Usher is such a BAD parent why would she have let her son who is not his have physical custody during a holiday? Where was she that she could not spend a holiday weekend with her son? She obviously had no problems handing her kid over to him to be supervised during a custody battle no less. She is pure classless black gold digging whore.
