Usher’s ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond Foster, 40, over their two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Raymond, isn’t holding any punches. Usher, 33, took the stand to tell of the time when Tameka flew into a jealous rage and spat on his now-girlfriend. Drama!
The scene started when Usher went to drop one of the son’s off at Tameka’s home. However, assuming his ex-stylist would become irate, the “Climax” singer parked further away (down the hill) from her home “in an effort to prevent any negative interaction.”
Foster found his parking far from the house suspicious and began to ask him repeatedly why he felt the need to do so. When the “Let It burn” singer refused to respond, Tameka went outside to see for herself—and it literally went downhill from there.
She walked to the car insinuating a fight with Usher’s now-stylist, manager, and girlfriend, Grace Miguel saying: “I’m going to kick your a**, b***h,” while asking the crooner why he would bring his new girl to her house.
“Of course, I tried my hardest to prevent the situation from escalating…but Foster continued to swing, spit, at this point she had pulled the door open and began to pull Ms. Miguel,” he said.
Usher testified that he stood between the mother of his two sons and the door of the passenger side where Grace was seated.
Foster “hit me, of course,” he said. (Of course? Of course as in she’s hit him before?)
“We exchanged words. I just told her this was no way to act,” Usher said, adding that Foster “threw her plate of food” at his car as he drove away.
Foster told the court earlier this month that her ex-husband has been in and out of the picture, spending most of his time on tour, according to TMZ.
“If he’s gone for months at a time and comes back traipsing in with his girlfriend, it was embarrassing,” she said.
Such claims were reiterated again which brought the “Yeah” singer to tears when confronted about his lack of parenting skills.
Tameka’s lawyers brought forth photos in evidence showcasing a partying rock star lifestyle when the singer was in Europe this past February. The partying questions turned to his use of illicit drug use. Foster and her attorney had previously accused Usher of using drugs with the children in is custody,
Usher admitted to smoking weed in the past, but his lawyer objected before he could answer if he had indeed used ecstasy.
Raymond and Foster were married in 2007 and divorced two years later. The trial continues tomorrow.
