Usher's Ex 'Angry' Their Son Was Injured on His Watch

By MELISSA LUSTRIN | Good Morning America4 hours ago
  • Tameka Raymond on GMAUsher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond says she doesn't blame her superstar ex-husband for their son's http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/ushers-son-drowning-singer-retains-custody-pool-accident-19934251" rel="nofollow - near-drowning accident , but is "angry that it happened on his watch" and believes the couple's two children aren't getting the proper care under the music mogul.

Raymond's 5-year-old son, http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/08/usher-raymond-v-out-of-hospital-back-to-playing/" rel="nofollow - Usher Raymond V , nearly drowned in the singer's pool at his home outside Atlanta on Aug. 5. The boy survived and was recently spotted with a bandage on his arm, but the accident pushed the couple's bitter custody battle over their two children to center stage.

"I didn't blame [Usher] for it. I just was angry that it happened on his watch because while accidents happen, never have my children been injured on my watch," Raymond, 42, told ABC News' Dan Abrams in an exclusive interview.

The incident prompted Raymond to file for emergency temporary custody of the couple's two children, but a judge ruled on Aug. 9 that Usher will retain primary custody.

Raymond says Usher's busy schedule forces him to leave the children with a nanny or relatives when they should be with their mother.

"I feel like the kids are not getting proper care. And I think the reason for that is he's not there. There is no amount of care that a caregiver, nanny, grandmother, aunt, anyone… There's nothing like a mother," she said.

After the boy got his http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/ushers-son-drowning-singer-court-emergency-custody-hearing-19914062" rel="nofollow - hand caught in the pool drain , his aunt and a housekeeper were unable to pull him loose. Finally, two men who had been working in the home intervened, pulled him out and performed CPR.

Usher, 34, was not home at the time of the incident. He was about one mile away at a recording session. His ex-wife says he called her to inform her about the accident.

"I was at a dental appointment. And, you know, he doesn't call me regularly. So when I saw his number come up, I immediately jumped up. I figured he has the boys. I need to get there," she said.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/08/usher-raymond-v-out-of-hospital-back-to-playing/" rel="nofollow - Usher Raymond V Out of Hospital, Back to Playing

Raymond said when she arrived at the hospital her sadness over her son's injuries then turned into anger.

"I was mad, because I was like, 'How did this happen? Who was watching him? Why was my son underwater for nearly three minutes?'" she said.

For Raymond, it was a horrifying case of déjà-vu after her 11-year-old son from a former relationship, Kile, died in a jet skiing accident in July 2012.

"It was like I relived it. Like, my brain just went into all those modes…I even said on the phone, 'I've had this call before,'" Raymond said.

Just one day after little Usher's accident, Raymond requested an emergency hearing in hopes of winning temporary custody of her two sons with the Grammy-winning singer. The couple also has a 4-year-old son named Naviyd.

"I'd like to have my first right of refusal, which means that when he is not present, the kids come home to their mom. They don't stay home with the nanny and Skype him all night. They don't stay with the nanny and watch whatever show he's on," Raymond said.

"I had to see on Instagram that my 4-year-old lost his first tooth. That's my baby, you know? Things that are precious moments, milestone moments, I'm just missing them," she said.

Raymond thinks Usher is a good father and insists she does not hate him.

"He is the father of my children. I think that he has good intentions for the children. I think that he's a control freak, a bit. You know, I think that he's accustomed to getting his way. I think that people give him his way. And I think that he just want wants to have the kids under his control."

"He wasn't raised with his father. So I think sometimes that makes him overcompensate or be a little overzealous as it pertains to my kids," she added.

ABC News reached out to Usher's representatives, but they declined to comment.

She's actually a very pretty woman. I remember when BHM used to swear that she looked like the Crypt Keeper.

But she's bitter as hell and seems upset that her paychecks aka her children are with Usher and not her...or maybe I'm being too harsh, but that's what it seems like.

The lady is not fighting for money . I witness a family member fight a rich ex over children . Really difficult when the man is richer in my op . I have never read anything that would justify giving usher full custody. She never blame usher in the video for the accident . I would fight until my last breath for my baby if anyone tried to take custody .

I think her mental illness had a lot to do with her losing custody

I feel bad for her! she has already lost a child and to come close to losing another would take a toll on any mother! I know that I would fight until the end for my children! this case is no different from duane wayde and his baby moma, these women want their children and just because they don`t have the money and legal team, they lost their kids.

I think that was a label given to her due to the problems in her marriage . She spoke on it in the video . I think both parents are lying when they claim no hate feelings. I would be really angry at my Ex due to his desire to take full custody of our children .

What picture are you talking about ? I am speaking on him laughing at her on the stand . I am sure both parents made facial expressions in court . I made in clear it all topics how i stand with the mother regarding custody as a mother .

They're both f*cked up but she's probably the worst.  I'm tired of seeing her trifling, vindictive a$s in the media trying to remain relevant.  Bish, you're divorced and your ex husband took your kids.  The fact that this happened should let her know it's time to self-evaluate and get her life.  I have no sympathy.  Not all mothers are fit mothers.

Now she wants to acknowledge that the kids need both of them, but all of this could have been avoided if she just took the joint custody he wanted in the first place.

And she points out him not having a father making him an overzealous father like it's a bad thing. SOME men who have had sh!tty fathers and don't wanna repeat the cycle make some if the best fathers. They know how it effected them, and don't wanna do that to their children.

We will never know what went on behind closed doors . I hope they can work out a compromise for the sake of the children . I think both parents are wrong in different ways . I would bet the boys miss mom and love her also . Just sad all the way around . I can't imagine what the children will go through due to teasing in school .

Money or no money, any mother worth her salt is going to be bitter she doesn't have primary custody of her children. That means a lot in a society where mothers are given primary care 99 per cent of the time. It's telling society something is wrong with you/ you're not a good enough mum. Hell yeah, bitterness is normal, even for those who have no money. Plus she loves her kids. That must hurt like bullets through the chest.

I feel her. Usher is getting love due to his status and money. He is leaving their kids in the hands of others, he is not there enough....they are still very young. I think the two of them can work it outside of the courts to where she gets to have them when he needs to be away. There is no sense of having the kids when you are not there to spend time with them. Like she said..it is about control. He doesn't want to pay child support neither. Du tout facon, they can work something out on their own.

Wish i could answer your questions . I never heard of the lady until she married Usher .

Personal life

In June 2009, Usher filed for divorce, citing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irreconcilable_differences" rel="nofollow - irreconcilable differences when claiming to have lived separately from Foster for nearly a year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tameka_Foster#cite_note-9" rel="nofollow - [9] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tameka_Foster#cite_note-10" rel="nofollow - [10] Foster's family spoke against the claims, stating Usher had been living in their Atlanta home until March 2009. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tameka_Foster#cite_note-11" rel="nofollow - [11]

On July 6, 2012, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tameka_Foster#cite_note-wsb-12" rel="nofollow - [12] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tameka_Foster#cite_note-essence-13" rel="nofollow - [13] Foster's 11-year-old son Kile was critically injured after he and a teenage friend, riding on an http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inner_tube" rel="nofollow - inner tube on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Lanier" rel="nofollow - Lake Lanier near http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta" rel="nofollow - Atlanta , were hit by a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_Ski" rel="nofollow - Jet Ski operated by family friend Jeffrey S.

If she didn't have a mental illness there would be no need for a retest


On her having to take a psychological test and having a ‘moderately severe mental disorder’
Yes. I’m going to be retested. You would think that from hearing that, it sounds like ‘Wow, she must be cutting the kids or beating them excessively or on crack or selling crack.’ […]

I only know what i have read in the media ladies ^^^ I think she made a mistake by using a tester paid for  by usher team . I would be crazy if i lost a child and now he wants to take the rest . Most mother's i know would fight for full custody under the circumstance by way the marriage went in my op . All i want is a fair agreement for the mother . We will never know again what actually went wrong . The woman seems more sane than usher at this point . Why not allow her to share custody ? I fight that man with my last breath . We only have the media reports to base on op own . The children need the mother also .

Usher paid for the tester . Do you recall she lost a child right before the court date ? I would be crazy also . Both are wrong to put the babies through all of this in my op .

I am going to search online for more info. I can't understand why several members are talking so low of the woman . I am sure usher was cheating dog also in the relationship . A mother's love for a child is very strong in most cases . I would die for my child . My husband is a great father , but the bond my daughter and i share cannot compare . I would always go to my mother before anyone including my great father . The lady obtain a degree and made something of her life as a young mother before usher . JMO

She didn't lose ALL custody. They both have joint custody but Usher has Primary custody.
