This week, Usher’s five year old son was taken to the emergency room after a bizarre swimming accident. It was only a matter of time before Usher’s ex-wife and the child’s mother decided to step in to protect her young.
Tameka Raymond is demanding custody of her kids after the incident, claiming that Usher is creating a dangerous situation for the children.
TMZ is reporting that Tameka has filed legal documents demanding an emergency hearing to take custody of her kids. The documents were filed in Fulton County, Georgia. She says that Usher is not doing a good job of taking care of their two children and the courts need to intervene.
It turns out that Usher’s aunt was watching the kids when five-year old Usher Raymond V got his arm stuck in a pool drain. Tameka also says that this is not the first time that the children have been in danger under the aunt’s watchful eye. She also says that the woman allowed a stalker into the house where the kids were staying and that put them in danger too.
She also complains that the aunt is too physical with the kids in her discipline.
A lot of mothers have problems with the way other women discipline their kids. There are also huge financial consequences for Tameka not having the kids in her home. If she were to take custody, she would instantly have the income of a heart surgeon without going to school. Does this sound legitimate or is she taking advantage of an otherwise stressful situation? It’s hard to tell. The only people who suffer when these kinds of things happen are the children.
