Usher to Ex-Wife


... Get Over It

9/8/2012 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

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 DIED due to HER neglect. If Usher is such a BAD parent why would she have let her son who is not his child spend time with him 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 a classless black gold digging whore.

@DEE DEE....thank God i'm an exception i'm a African American woman and i got a divorce in November 2011 and my separation agreement was sweet i received the house, all the furniture in the house,$1,500.00 per month for eight years deducted from my ex-husband's paycheck, 50% of the 401k and 50% of his IRA pension and a peace of mine.

And during the divorce the judge restrain him from the property and made him continue to pay the mortgage, my car insurance and payments on brand new windows in the house, but i married this fool when i was 20 and we was married for 25 years.

Tameka wants the kids cause the checks come with the kids. Usher isn't being cheap at all. He adores those kids and has good reason why he doesn't want her to be their main role model.

Keeping it REAL    

This is why Tomeka LOST her children. Everytime I turned around this female was at a club or a get away after her divorce. She would be alone on vacation, NEVER did you see her children with her or even fly with her. No one EVER heard about her other children until Usher filed for custody.Then she started doing interviews talking about all of her children. This all started when she left her two month old with the nanny. NO one knew not even Usher that she was flying to Brazil to take care f who Herself and almost died. If this is not NEGLET then you people are crazy. She is a GOLD DIGGER that has lost her cash flow. She don't love anyone but her damn self. My mother was the same way.

Tameka had plans and it didn't work the way she wanted it to. now that karma is coming back in the worst way she is crying like a baby. some time things don't turn out the way we want it to especially since it's all about doing dirt and thinking that no one can see through your deceit. we all have to remember god don't like ugly and it doesn't matter what our plans are it all balls down to what god has planned.

Actually, she may have a case. Did her lawyer ask the judge to recuse him or herself due to a conflict of interests? It is unseemly for a judge to rule in favor of a political donor lawyer who appears before that court.

It's funny all of you stand up for Halle Berry's baby daddy but then you say it's wrong for her to get her kids and a bunch of money from usher and saying she needs to work and stop being a gold digger. What do you think he is? Pathetic man that dosn't want to work. Saying this money is for "Nalha" like a toddler needs 20,000 dollars a month. That's for his gold digging ass to keep up his lifestyle that he is accustom to. I can't believe ya'll. usally people think it's wrong for the men to do this but you all act like it's ok for this man to do this but not this woman?! Dosn't make sense. I think it's wrong for anyone to get child support especially if they have shard custody and were never married.

I think that Usher has done the right thing for his children his ex wife has been nothing but crazy since he left her publicly and privately she has been jailed several times for being violent to him and his girl friends and she has been nothing short of a mad woman they are better off with their dad rather than a woman scorned
