Usher's Ex-Wife

Shut Down

By Custody Judge ... Again

9/15/2012 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

's ex-wife Tameka Raymond just lost ANOTHER round in her custody battle with the singer ... the judge shot down her request for a retrial ... but Tameka's not giving up.

As TMZ first reported, Tameka filed docs earlier this month demanding a second bite of the apple after Usher was awarded primary custody of the couple's two kids. Tameka claimed the judge is biased because she accepted campaign donations from Usher's lawyer.

But this week, the same judge rejected Tameka's motion -- claiming it's been public knowledge since 2008 that Usher's lawyer donated to her re-election campaign ... and if Tameka cared to look, she would have found out long before her custody trial.

As far as the judge is concerned ... Tameka's just a sore loser.

Sources close to Tameka tell TMZ she plans to appeal.

it's not a conflict of interest if BOTH SIDES donated FOUR years ago.
now if say, usher's lawyer donated this year, i could see a conflict of interest... but it was four years ago, and both did.
she's using this claim now, because she lost, you can bet this was saved in the hope of using it against usher via his lawyer.
that woman is a mental midget nutjob.

Tameka simply needs to move on and stop being bitter with Judge Lane's ruling. It was not a "purchase verdict", lawyers and judges do not raise funds from the general public like the POTUS. And Usher didn't contribute any funds towards Judge Lane's reelection campaign. Judges do not drop their case load simply because they're rerunning to remain in their appointed post as Federal Supreme Court judge. Tameka needs to let Usher be a father to his two boys and seek some therapy to resolve her personal battles.

She doesnt have custody of any of her children. Her poor son that just passed away also lived with his dad that has custody. For a gron wman to spit in anothers womans face because he moved on has serious issues. Im a mom and a woman always has the upper hand when it comes to custody for a woman to lose not once but twice is seriously wrong. I applaud a man owning up to his responsibility and Usher you shouldve listened to your mom when you finally did it was too late but kids are a blessing.
