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.

I think people need to stop being so hard on Tameka Raymond! You dont know her and you dont know what Usher put her through! Everyone knows Usher is no saint! Usher is a dog, ask Chilli.

Im not saying Tameka is a saint, she cheated on her husband with Usher. However, neither of them is a saint so stop giving Usher all this saintly treatment just because he is a celebrity.

It makes sense that Tameka would want another trial. Whether the judge was biased or not, any mother who had any reason to push for a new trial would do so. She is trying to get her kids back.

I personally dont know which parent is best for the kids. Yes Usher has money and he seems like a good father, but I dont konw what kind of mother Tameka is. Sadly, since the death of her son, I feel that her emotional state may not be the best environment for her kids to be around. Kids can tell when you're sad and depressed and its probably a happier place to be with Usher right now.

But I dont think Tameka deserves to lose her kids all together. She is their mother and she should have rights and say so over them as well.

Children need harmony between both parents whether married or divorced. They aren't a prize. Loosing custody is painful for a parent and children even when the courts find it in the best interest of the kids. Word to Usher: Better be nice about Mommy because as soon as they are of the age to make a decision as which parent will have them primarily you'll be left in the dust , resented, and paying mega support. Their mother isn't going to just go away.

It would be real nice if he and others like him would show some class and be a good role model to younger people,It makes me sick that they hook up have these kids and then spit on the ex and talk major crap..It WILL backfire what people dont realize is he may have them now but when they get older they will turn on you as quick as he turned on thier Mother,,What a shame

I think the Judge was unfair and insensitive to Tameka in awarding Usher the boys. Tameka may be a gold digger, but I believe she loves her children. There is no justification for her children being taken from her. She should be awarded a new trial and given her boys back.

Money to a judge's campaign, I'd love to
Know his answer when asked why he did.
This should not be possible, there are still two justices.
Saks card is a discount card lol how great !

It's gonna be easier on the kids, if she had them she would cause Usher problems everyday as a revenge.
