Usher’s Son Almost Drowns in Pool in Atlanta and his Ex-Wife Request for Custody

Via: TMZ

Usher’s son Usher Raymond V is in the ICU at an Atlanta hospital after a serious accident in the singer’s pool Monday.

The accident occurred around 6 PM when Usher was not home at the time. The child was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain. He dove down to get the toy and his arm got stuck in the drain. The aunt immediately dove in to the rescue him but couldn’t get his hand out. The maid then dove in and tried but was also unsuccessful.

The maid screamed for help. Two men working in the house came out, dove in and freed the boy. He was given CPR immediately and rushed to the hospital. Usher arrived and drove in the ambulance with his son.

5-year-old Usher Raymond V is the oldest of Usher’s two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. We’re told Usher and Tameka are currently at the hospital. Doctors have been running a series of tests and doctor’s say he’ll be ok.

This is the second accident to strike children in Usher’s family. Tameka’s 11-year-old son Kile from a previous relationship passed away last year from injuries sustained during a jet ski accident.

Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka filed legal documents asking for an emergency hearing later this week … to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he’s creating a dangerous environment for their children.

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.
