Usher & Tameka's Fighting: Back to Business!!
One would think that with Tameka Raymond burying one of her sons just last week, that the constant bickering between the two would be put on pause, but obviously that's a no-no and it's full steam ahead with the f*ckery!
Come on y'all - do better.
Supposedly, Ursha Claude didn't really care about Tameka's dead son and basically said, "whatever" to the funeral and is only PRETENDING to be affected by the tragedy to get sympathy from the media and his fans.
Tameka's lawyer has filed new documents in their custody war, and they're pretty much slamming Ursha Claude who asked the court to delay the next hearing in light of the death of Tameka's son, Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.
In his request, Usher claims he's worried the hearing would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children "in the immediate wake of this tragedy."
Usher also claims Tameka would get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son. Usher fears he could lose custody of the children and believes it would be unfair to him.
But in docs of her own ... Tameka's lawyer claims Usher is full of crap ... insisting U's claims of suffering "stress and strain" are "BOGUS."
In fact, she claims Usher didn't care about her son at all in his final days -- even though Usher regarded him as a son back when they were married.
"[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once" during his 15 days on life support ... Tameka claims.
She also claims she had begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, "Please pray for Kile" ... but he refused. Instead, Tameka claims, Usher's next tweet was a photo of his own breakfast with the caption, "Breakfast of Champions."
In her docs, Tameka claims Usher's attempt to postpone the hearing is "simply a transparent sham" ... and asks the judge to DENY Usher's request and require him to appear at the next scheduled hearing, set for August 13.
What's interesting is that I'd heard that Usher was the one wanting to go full steam ahead with the custody case, but it looks like Tameka is the one who wants to go ahead with it. I suspect Ursha Claude's attorney is right... she will get much more sympathy as a mother who just lost a baby a few weeks ago.
This is a no-win for Usher because he's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't. To me, you have to be some kind of mean to take the children of a woman who just lost a baby.. why not just share custody? Honestly, those kids will spend more time with nannies than they will with their father if he gets custody anyway.
Tameka claims resolving the custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move forward with her life.
