Usher’s Ex-Wife to Aunt — Say It To My Face … How’d My Son Nearly Die On Your Watch?

“s ex-wife has one serious question before her emergency custody hearing today — how the hell is it possible to let a 5-year-old nearly drown if you”re supposed to be babysitting him — and only Usher”s aunt can answer it … but she”s nowhere to be found.

Sources close to the situation tell our sources, Tameka Raymond attempted to serve Usher”s aunt Rena with a subpoena to testify at the custody hearing today — where Tameka will argue she deserves primary custody of her and Usher”s two sons — but Rena couldn”t be tracked down.

We”re told Tameka wanted Rena at the hearing so her lawyers could ask about what led up to the near-drowning of her 5-year-old son on Monday … when Rena was supposed to be watching him … but without the subpoena, Rena doesn”t have to show up.

Even without Rena, however, Tameka has plenty of ammo to fight for custody — and we”re told her biggest weapon is that there was no drain cover on the pool the day Usher Raymond V nearly drowned.

As we reported, the 5-year-old got his arm caught in the drain and nearby contractors had to dive in to save him. Rena called 911.

Usher currently has primary custody of the ex-couple”s two sons … but Tameka hopes to change that today.
