Exclusive 0807_usher_tameka_tmz
Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond were on the brink of war BEFORE their son almost drowned in a pool … and it was all over child support payments, our sources has learned.

Usher filed legal docs earlier this month asking a judge to lower his child support payment to Tameka. As it stood, Usher was shelling out $8,000 / month for the couple”s 2 sons … which he claims is BS.

Here”s why … Usher says that child support amount is from an old agreement and hasn”t been changed since he was granted PRIMARY custody last year. He says he”s been overpaying the last 7 months and wants a judge to remedy the situation.

Usher requested a hearing on the matter — but so far, no date has been set.

our sources broke the story … Tameka and Usher were ALREADY in court this week, battling over custody. Tameka asked a judge to grant her MORE custody — claiming Usher”s to blame for their son”s pool accident — but she was shot down.
