My Ex-Wife

Is a Bad Mom

8/9/2013 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usher has denied every allegation his ex-wife has made in her motion to wrestle custody away from the singer in the wake of Usher Raymond V's nearly fatal pool accident -- he's even denied she's a good mom.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Usher is not specific about what he's denying ... he just denies, denies, denies.

Tameka Raymond made various allegations, including that Usher was an absentee parent for 85% of the month, that his aunt failed to properly supervise the boy at the swimming pool, and that he has said he'd prefer that the nanny raise his kids.  Usher denied everything.

And there's this ... Tameka claims she's a capable mother.  Usher denied that, too.

The hearing is set for 2 PM ET.  We're in court, so stay tuned.

She may be a bad mom, but she's definitely a bad human being.

Every time the kid(s) trips, stumbles, stutters, gets a C, falls down on his/their bikes.

Usher can expect this.

Only a tremendous amount of money is gonna make her go away for good.

Legal harassment at the expense of kids.

Wow ...    

Tameka will regret all of this one day. Her children will grow up and realize there is something wrong when a mother loses custody of her children to their fathers. She has had 5 children, with different fathers (not that there is something wrong with that, but has had different judges for different custody hearings) and has custody of none.

You know he's a singer therefor he can't always be home. Sometimes he has to travel sometimes he has to record music. Maybe the boys didn't want to go with him. Wouldn't you rather have your kids with a family member then a nanny? Stop acting like this accident couldn't have happened with her.

First of all, Usher and Tameka need to start being better co-parents. If they think their comments will never reach little Usher's ears, they are wrong.
Second, I have photos of my pool, which has TWO drains. I believe this is how pools and spas are now done. There have been a few accidents in the past involving drains. The force from one drain is enough to pull your intestines out if you were to sit on it, as has happened to a few children in the past. It was, as Harvey stated, a FREAK accident, and no one is to blame. If blame is to be put, it is on the homeowner for not having the pool up to current standards.
Usher and Tameka need to grow up and start being role models to their children. The fighting is ridiculous and childish.

What? She doesn't even have custody of her kids with her other ex-husband (the guy before Usher)? I didn't even know that? That's kind of strange.

Usher: Life Fail. He should go back to working as an usher at the movie theatre. Damn creep. I wouldnt hire him to play his "music" at my beloved son Geoffrey's 10th birthday party.

When a woman loses custody of all her children you know something is fishy...isn't she a major lush or something? I seem to recall a hilarious picture of the two of them at some event in which she is obviously wasted and he is standing next to her looking at the glass she is holding looking none too pleased...

Losing a child is devastating. I remember when her older son died though I believe at the time he was in another STATE than her and he was also in the care of an aunt. I find it disturbing that her first reaction was to go to court instead of the her sons well being. I would suggest that Usher build some sot of a security fence around the pool that would not allow the children to be in the area of the pool with out supervision. But lets face it even with supervision accidence happen. I for on am very happy to hear that he is doing well and God Bless the men who saved this young boys life.

Well, the judge/court agreed considering she had custody taken from her.
