CHILD CUSTODY WOES: USHER VS. TAMEKA
Are the Raymonds having difficulty? Apparently so. TMZ reports that Tameka Raymond recently filed a motion to have Usher’s parental rights removed. According to the singer’s ex-wife, Usher has repeatedly failed to fulfill his legal obligations as a father by neglecting to give her the opportunity to spend time with the kids when he is away. The singer also refused to give his ex-wife custody of the children during summer and winter breaks.
In addition to ostracizing her as a parent during school vacations, Tameka claims that Usher has failed to obtain her approval before taking the kids outside of the state. Usher has closed Tameka’s Saks Fifth Avenue charge account, and does not pay her $5,000 per month to hire a nanny as promised. Although he faithfully pays child support, Tameka feels that Usher should give her more money for the kids because his income has substantially increased since the divorce and initial court order.
Tameka and Usher will battle out their differences in court next month. The divorcees have two children, Usher V and Naviyd, together.
