Usher Awarded Primary Custody Of Kids

It’s a major blow for the R&B singer’s ex-wife…
The ugly back-and-forth between Usher and his now ex-wife Tameka Raymond has finally come to an end… At least on a legal level. The “Lemme See” singer was awarded primary custody of their two sons.

TMZ reports the story…

This breaking news comes as a shock in the case, which seemed like a lose-lose situation from the start…

Both members of the former couple were trying to strip the other of custody.

Usher argued that Tameka was not a proper mother, citing her “inattentive and irresponsible” demeanor. She countered that the singer was never around due to the demands of his career and he might as well make that a permanent fixture.

Tameka also bashed Usher, accusing him of partying and doing drugs in front of the kids.

According to TMZ, on Friday the judge sided with Usher and awarded him primary custody of their sons Usher and Naviyd. Tameka retains some custodial rights, but the details of their extent are currently unclear.

The case itself has been a rollercoaster of emotions from both sides of the battle. At one point, Usher was captured while breaking down and crying on the witness stand.

Last month, the case took a sad turn when the couple’s oldest son Kile Glover, died as the result of a jet ski accident.

Tameka even turned that incident against Usher in court, saying that the father didn’t care about Kile’s death and only visited him once in the two weeks that he was on life support.

So much for resting in peace…
