Usher Retains Custody; Hugs Ex-Wife in Court

Usher Retains Custody; Hugs Ex-Wife in Court

Showing how important co-parenting is to him, Usher hugged his ex-wife after her emergency custody motion was dismissed on Friday (August 9).

Earlier this week, the former couple”s five-year-old son nearly drowned in a swimming pool accident, for which Tameka Raymond blamed the child”s father in court docs.

However, the “DJ Got Us Fallin” in Love” singer”s attorneys argued that it was an accident that could have happened to anyone.

In court, the judge agreed and said the child”s aunt who was watching him was “capable,” ruling that Usher retains full custody. At the end, he warned the 34-year-old star, “In the future you would be well advised to keep your former spouse informed about your whereabouts and who is taking care of the kids. That will be a feature perhaps in the case as this moves forward or the companion case.”
