Tameka Raymond was granted emergency custody of her son, Usher Raymond V after he nearly drowned while under Usher’s care. Tameka claimed Usher is not home 85% of the time, saying the “Let Me See” singer has been using third-party caregivers as opposed to giving his sons proper parenting time.
While under the care of Usher’s aunt, Rena Olden, Usher V dove into the family pool to retrieve a toy, got his arm stuck and had to be rescued by workers at Usher’s home. Tameka’s attorneys are using this tragic incident as grounds that Usher is never around to properly parent his children. “He’s not there. That’s the problem,” Tameka claims.
Tameka has had issues with Usher’s Aunt Rena in the past. She said the woman let a stalker into the home while Usher and the kids were there and she also says that Rena is too physical with the children when it comes to disciplining them.
We’re glad Tameka’s got custody as it’s only been about a year since she lost her son Kile in a jet ski accident. No one wants to lose their children and Tameka is only trying to hold her kids close. Here’s hoping she gets full custody! She tweeted that her son is fine this morning.
Im very happy this morning, my son is resting well… we had a SpongeBob marathon ALLL night, he wouldn't go to sleep! Thank u 4 the prayers—
