Usher's Ex-Wife

Our Kids Are In Danger

I Want Custody

EXCLUSIVE

Usher's ex-wife has just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing later this week ... to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he's creating a dangerous environment ... TMZ has learned.

Tameka Raymond filed the docs in Fulton County, Georgia, claiming Usher is abdicating his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their 2 kids -- people who she claims are not on the ball.

We know Tameka has specific beef with the Usher's aunt -- who was watching 5-year-old Usher Raymond V when his arm got stuck in the pool drain on Monday.  Tameka has complained about the aunt in the past -- alleging she once let a stalker in the house where Usher and the kids were staying.  Tameka also says the aunt is too physical in disciplining the kids.

Currently Usher has primary custody of both kids and Tameka has limited custodial rights.  She now seeks to reverse that.

Go Tameka! I don't care how many "hate" clicks I get. There was NEVER any evidence presented by Usher or anyone else that she was an unfit parent. I know she wasn't innocent and played games and now she's paying for it. BUT, he took those kids out of spite. Maybe he even did it to avoid child support which is even more disgusting. Only an evil person would take a mother's children away after she just lost another child. The judge should have given them joint custody. I saw him in that Oprah interview, and he came off like a complete jerk, and it was obvious he cheated on her throughout the marriage. Then he admitted he didn't have time to raise the boys himself. He went on to talk about the team of relatives and assistants that would help raise his children. Then he posted that tacky picture with the new girlfriend hold the kids right after the custody decision. Unless a parent is unfit, children need them BOTH. He is an immature little jerk.

Lets be fair here. She didn't exactly come out of nowhere with this, did she? I think its a bit rude to assume that she is just after money. She's already lost one kid and almost lost another today. It amazes me how mean spirited some of you folks are on here.

What a loser. If she has the kids will she be with them 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Usher needs to fix the drain in his pool is what he needs to do. Didn't they fix that problem on pools years ago? Isn't there something you put on your drain to keep this kind of thing from happening?

She's a mess. It's a freak accident. She should be with her son right now, not trying to get custody.

He paid off the judge that gave him custody . He is too greedy to pay child support and would rather keep his kids that he does NOT watch under the care of the subpar care of his dumb a$$ sister! Give the woman her kids back and make him pay up.

Your second child in less than a year has an accident and the first thing you think of is is go to court? Your focus should be on your child and getting him out of ICU and healthy! Accidents happen! Focus on your kid and get your mind off your bank statements!
