Tameka Raymond Loses Custody Battle: Her and Usher Hug it Out in Court (Video)

Tameka and Usher Raymond have been through a lot…Usher saying Tameka’s not a good mom and vice versa, their son’s recent accident, the death of Tameka’s 11 year old son, and they’re also going through a rough divorce battle.
Pretty shocking … especially considering the painfully awkward silence that preceded the hearing.
Tameka filed an emergency request for primary custody after her and Usher’s 5-year-old son Usher Raymond V nearly drowned in a pool last week. Usher currently has primary custody of their two boys.
In court Friday, Tameka used the pool accident as an example of Usher being an inattentive father, who employs incompetent caretakers — in this case his Aunt Rena — to look after their children.
Usher’s lawyer shot back, insisting Usher’s a great dad and the children are thriving with him, despite the recent pool accident … which, Usher argued, could have happened to anybody.
During questioning, Tameka broke down in tears talking about her son’s accident, saying she didn’t know if her child suffered permanent brain or heart damage.
FYI, Usher Raymond V is still in the hospital — Tameka claimed it’s because of lingering complications, including a low heart rate. Usher said it’s because he doesn’t want his son discharged before doctors are 100% sure he’s okay.
In the end, the judge sided with Usher, ruling the current custody order should stay in place … meaning Usher keeps primary custody, and Tameka gets a little.
