    Default Usher awarded primary custody of sons over ex-wife Tameka Raymond

    Usher Raymond's Ex-Wife LOSES CUSTODY WAR

    exclusive



    Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond just lost in the former couple's bitter custody battle -- TMZ has learned, a judge has awarded Usher primary custody of their two sons.

    It's a shocking development -- considering both sides were trying to strip each other of custody. Tameka felt the singer was an absentee father who was too absorbed in his career to be a good dad. She also accused him of using drugs in front of the kids.

    Usher argued Tameka was inattentive and irresponsible.

    The ruling marks the end of an emotional custody trial -- involving wild accusations and name-calling ... Usher even broke down at one point on the witness stand.

    But today, we're told a judge sided with the singer -- awarding Usher primary custody of the ex-couple's two sons, which means the children will be spending the majority of the time with their father.

    Tameka still retains some custodial rights -- but the extent to which Tameka will be able to see her kids is unclear.

    Foster, who was fighting to retain joint custody and have her monthly support payments increased, had claimed that R&B singer was too busy traveling to care for the children. Usher's lawyers said earlier this month that Foster was "incapable of being a proper parent" to the boys, adding that she "does not have the emotional stability to or capacity to bond with them, and therefore she is handicapped."

    Things got especially heated in May, when Foster took the stand and admitted under oath that she had told the R&B star, "I will f**k you up." That same month, Usher reportedly refused Foster's request to allow her and their sons live permanently in the Georgia mansion he owns.
    Usher, Tameka Foster Custody Battle: Usher Awarded Primary Custody Of Sons
    Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, married Tameka Raymond in 2007. They divorced two years later. He said the couple had been separated since July 2008 and claimed there was “no reasonable hope of reconciliation” and the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”

    In May, Usher testified that Tameka Raymond spit at and tried to fight his girlfriend during one visit and that his ex-wife hit him during the dispute. He said he didn’t press charges because: “I didn’t want the boys to know that their father put their mother in jail.”

    Tameka Raymond’s attorney claimed that Usher provoked her client and that his account is exaggerated.

    Tameka Raymond I Will Appeal The Custody Decision

    exclusive


    Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond is PISSED over her recent loss in court and believes the ruling could be the result of a biased judge ... so she's gearing up to file an appeal, TMZ has learned.

    TMZ broke the story ... Tameka lost a hard-fought custody battle on Friday when a judge ruled in Usher's favor and granted primary custody of their two young children to the singer.

    But sources close to Tameka tell TMZ, she feels the ruling was unfair. We're told Tameka recently found out that Usher's lawyer's law firm threw an election fundraiser back in 2008 for the judge who presided over the trial ... and she feels that connection may have influenced the ruling.

    According to the campaign contribution report for Judge Lane, the law firm that represented Usher raised $1,278 for Lane in March 2008.

    Sources tell us ... Tameka is baffled by the decision because she argued in court that Usher is constantly on the road, where as she has the more stable schedule ... thus it makes no sense to give him primary custody.

    We're told Tameka wants to fight the decision ASAP and is interviewing lawyers for an appeal.

    We reached out to the judge for comment, but so far no word back.

    Fathers are being awardxed custody more and more, even when the mother is stable and poses no risk to the child(ren). In most cases both parents will need to work and the father is just as capable of being the primary caretaker. Times are changing and fathers are much more involved in parenting.

    I doubt that a judge will show bias for a 1.2k campaign contribution.

    IIRC, she doesn't have custody of her other children either. Pretty telling.

    She doesn't? All I know is that she just lost a kid tragically. That's the part that makes me feel really sorry for her right now. She went from 4 kids to 1 in a matter of weeks.
    Of course, it'll also be probably what'll push a crazy bitch into full on pink wig territory.
