*Updated: Tameka loses again as a judge has denied her request for primary custody(Read More).

Tameka Foster recently posted pictures to Instagram displaying her cuddling her five-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, after his near drowning in a pool accident on Monday. The caption read, “My favorite 5 year old. What a blessing!”

Tameka went on to say, “I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident. URV had an angel named Kile Ishmael and our Lord and true savior to look after him. Words cannot express the relief and how thankful to God I truly am. Thank you Jehovah God, Jesus and Kile……also The AV worker that saved my son is my Hero!!! Period.”

Usher Raymond V is Tameka’s oldest son with singer, Usher Raymond. The young boy got his arm stuck in a swimming pool drain trying to retrieve a toy. He was rushed to intensive care after two contractors were able to free him.

Father, Usher, also released a statement. “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family’s well-being. I would like to thank my Aunt Rena [Oden] as well as the doctors and nurses who are working with us around the clock,” he stated.

On Tuesday, Tameka filed legal documents asking the court for an emergency hearing, claiming that the singer is making a ‘dangerous environment’ for the kids.

The two parents are currently battling it out in court.  Stay tuned!

  1. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page
    layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  2. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against
    it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get
    so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  3. I honestly think her children should’ve never been taken away from her. Usher is not a saint. If he was ANY kind of man after her son was killed he would’ve backed off the custody case and gave her time to heal. You can’t be mad at her for trying to do the same thing Usher did when he won custody. By the grace of GOD she didn’t lose another child.

    • Usher told the courts he wanted to postpone the hearing but Tameka said no because she thought she’d get sympathy from the judge. Pls do a lil research, even if it’s through google.

  4. God is great, that baby is alive.

    Tameka should be ashamed of herself for posting pics of her son in the hospital.

  5. I’m just glad the baby’s ok. I think this is bad timing. Makes it seem like she’s blaming Usher. I thought it was completely unfair when people blamed her for not being with her other son, Kile, when his accident occurred. The fact that he wasn’t there at the time isn’t a good enough reason to try and fight. He left the kids in watch of an obviously trusted relative. His aunt didn’t want this to happen. So mean to do this right now.Yeah, she wants to be able to have her kids as most kids deserve to have both parents. As far as her, I don’t know her personally but Usher was granted primary for a valid reason. Maybe in time they’ll work out a plan where they’ll be able to share more equal time with their kids. It’s great Usher still hugged her in court right after. He’s not holding any grudges. They need to make up for their kids. You never hear about stuff like this between Mashonda and Swizz or Kimora and Russell. Even though Kim and Russ’ girls were a little older when they separated.

  6. I can understand tameka’s response she has sadly lost one child and I think she simply couldn’t deal with the heartbreak of another. I pray Cinco makes a speedy recovery and quickly goes back to what 5 year olds do running around causing havoc around the house lol.This situation is sad usher and tameka’s need to sit down together without the court and work things out for the sake of their children. If usher out of town there is no justified reason yet as to why tameka should have the children And vice visa . I’m just happy lil man made it through .

  7. Yeah for Usher!

    Was never really an Usher fan before but this good digger needs to be kept in her place! Usher looks like he came to fight today! People need to use courts less and learn how to hash things out on their own, damn I should have been a lawyer!!! I am really starting to question the state of mind of Tameka. Two life changing events could break the strongest person but Instagram. Why???? She had to paint that picture of doting mom, epic fail!

    • I sure hope so! I still feel that when Usher is away, the best place for the kids is with their mom. If she were acting like Siovaughn Wade, I’d have to withdraw my support but I think Tameka is alright. Lol. They should have equal access to their kids.

  8. Didn’t think she’d win, it was an accident not deliberate nor irresponsible on Ushers part. But I bet he has those drains covers installed ASAP.
    SN: I read Cinco was under water for 3 minutes & he may have some issues due to that. Lord, pls let this young man overcome any & all obstacles that may come up due to this accident. He will be healed in Your name.

    • Amen, Sherley. I hope he is okay, too. Poor little fellow. It was sad to hear how excited his little brother got , too.

    • He will be ok and shouldn’t have any lasting affects. He was still breathing after a minute he didn’t lose much oxygen to his brain. I pray the little cutie pootie get well and stay well.

  9. Many people on this site try to paint Tameka as the world’s worst mom, but I have no doubt that this woman loves her kids. Listening to that 911 call is scary. Getting a call that your child was trapped under water and CPR had to be administered and he was rushed to the ER is scary. Having a child come that close to death after already losing a child is scary. I would have done exactly what she did, and that’s do anything to get custody of my babies.

  10. I pray for the day where these parents come to peace with each other and allow themselves to properly co-parent. Think of the kids

  11. Watching the live feed, and it doesn’t sound good at MANY moments for those kids. This might not end well.
