What happened was a freak accident but he WAS being watched and 4 people jumped in to save him. No he shouldn't lose custody. He's still the better provider. She needs to be grateful someone was there who could provide CPR which most likely saved his life. But a freak accident doesn't make Usher a bad parent

Wow ...    

No Usher should not lose custody. This was an accident. You would think his ex of all people would realize it, even though it is understandable for her to be distraught - it is not understandable for her to accuse him of nearly killing the child. Again, this was an accident!

If Nicki were smart she would've just laughed it off instead she made it sound like somebody hit the nail on the head. The old saying "you protest to much" is usually right on.

Well, B. Scott should have a good case. If a transgender can raise a stink and enter the Miss Universe contest, why the hell not sue for discrimination in this case.

Accidents happen... that is why they are called accidents. I hope the child is OK.

Didn't Tameka already have one son that died after being hit by a jet ski when he was with his dad? This was an accident, they happen, Tameka will use any excuse to get those Child support checks.

How the hell do you know it was stolen off his dead hand, you damn drama Queen? All the Insurance report says is it's missing. I'm sure it was pilfered off a night stand. TMZ and being over the top again. Pfffttt.

Wow ...    

The gay transgender personality is stretching it. If BET was discriminating they would not have hired him in the first place.

B. Scott lawsuit - perhaps the problem they had was that B. got an attitude after changing outfit & it showed on screen.
