Tameka Raymond appears to be on a damage control mission—via twitter no less. After news broke of her attempt to gain sole custody of her sons with Usher, Tameka seemed to go into overdrive to prove she’s a good mother—starting with twitpics of her sick son.
She posted the message above to let people know she was at home, caring for her sick boy, followed by another message that read: “Im going 2 log off 4 the day. My son is feeling sick, my Twitter is blowing up frm a BS “slanted” story, whatevsss. The block is HOT. LOL♥”
Later in the day she commented, “No matter how I “look”. My sons are my WORLD.. I could care less abt opinion. Seriously. Ppl need to carry-on….” and just this morning she posted, “I’ll be home w/my son on Wed.. Going no where, believe half of what you see & less that you read. For real. ♥”
Something about posting pics of your sick son sleeping on the couch just rubs me the wrong way. I’m sure Tameka wants to clear her name in what she says is a “ BS ‘slanted’ story,” but it seems while doing so she’s trying to paint an even more negative picture of Usher—as if to say “I’m here caring for my kids while he’s off closing my Saks 5th account.”
Obviously none of us knows the real deal on the couple’s relationship and co-parenting struggles, but children should always be kept out of the middle as much as possible, and from these tweets, it doesn’t look like Tameka’s off to a good start.
What do you think about Tameka’s good mother twitter campaign? Is she right to try to clear her image or is she exploiting her children?
