When I say I really hope this story isn’t true, I mean I really hope this isn’t true. Things are getting very heated in Usher and Tameka Raymond’s custody proceedings and both sides are throwing out wild accusations about the other—although none as sensational as Tameka claiming Usher slept with, not one, but two, of her bridesmaids.
This bomb was apparently dropped during court proceedings last week and was a response to testimony from several nannies who worked for the couple and said that Tameka was negligent, she didn’t have schedules or instructions related to the children, she was sporadic with the pay, and that none of them would work for her ever again. In response to the claims, Tameka’s attorney said that her client was under a great deal of stress at the time and was depressed because Usher had revealed to her that he slept with two of her bridesmaids.
That accusation was the last straw for Usher who reportedly stormed out of the courtroom during recess and was heard mumbling: “Now I am sleeping with her bridesmaids?”
I obviously can’t say whether that’s true or not but all I know is that if someone I was married to for a hot minute really slept with two members of my bridal party, there’s no way I would still be walking around with his last name after the divorce was final. I’m thinking Tameka might just be pulling out all the stops to get the cash and the kids—and that house that Usher owns and can kick her out of with just 60 days notice. Also, Usher hasn’t really said anything crazy about his ex-wife, the nannies are ruining her motherly image bad enough for him, which again makes her accusations seem just a tad bit on the shady side. Poor Ursh–unless of course this story is true, then he deserves whatever he gets.
What do you think? Is Tameka just making stuff up at this point?
