Usher and Tameka Raymond continue to prove the saying “Time heals all wounds” wrong as they picked up their nasty custody battle Monday right where they left off before Tameka’s son died.
Initial reports that Usher wanted to settle with Tameka after learning her son Kile Glover became brain-dead as a result of a jet-ski accident last month have proven completely false as the singer is still forging ahead with his efforts to obtain sole custody of his sons with his ex-wife. The R&B star and Tameka currently share joint custody, but Usher wants to be the primary caregiver for 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd, and even shared plans to take them on his European tour with him next year. Tameka countersued for full custody as a result.
To make his case, Straight From The A says Usher expressed doubts about Tameka’s care-giving and her refusal to keep him in the loop, saying:
“It’s alarming that I never know who was actually on the trip, who was with them, who was caretaking for them.
“Was the nanny there, was it a relative or a family member or one of the other children watching the kids? Was it a cousin, or an uncle—I don’t know, I never know. I never get any information unfortunately until we’re in court.”
It’s not clear what trip he’s referring too but Tameka argued back that with Usher’s work schedule the children would no doubt be in the care of a nanny more than their father, and also suggested he is unable to keep the children safe, given the stalker that landed on his premises not long ago. Usher explained that away saying his grandmother let the woman into his home thinking it was someone he had an appointment with.
The former spouses are expeced to continue the case all week, and it appears there’s still no end in site regarding a ruling. Oy Vey!
