Usher Is Fearful That His Kids Might Get Taken Away
The R&B star Usher is being accused of being a bad father to his kids by his ex-wife, and he is firing back at the wild claims she is making against him. Usher is telling anyone who will listen that he is indeed a good father and he deserves to be able to see his kids. This has become an issue because his ex wife is upset about him cancelling a Saks 5th Avenue credit card.
The gossip website TMZ originally broke the story. Ushers ex wife, Tameka Raymond, has asked a Georgia court last month for full custody of the two kids that they currently have. She is claiming that usher is not a good father and has not been living up to his responsibility. She claims he has done things with them without asking her permission, such as traveling, hiring nannies without asking her first, and other slights.
Tameka has also said that Usher cancelled her Saks 5th Avenue credit card, and as a result she is unable to take advantage of the special rewards the card offers for using it. Usher is defending himself of course, saying that it is all BS. He is asking the courts to turn down his ex wife’s request on the grounds that it is false and simply to spite him. At this moment Usher and Tameka share custody of the kids.
In the past Tameka has tried to do other things to bring into question whether Usher should have joint custody of the kids, such as asking courts to make him submit to a drug test. Both sides have been contacted asking for their side of the story, but both do not wish to talk about it. As of now a court date has been set for February 27.
Now some believe that the media simply does not like Ushers former wife, and they feel they go overboard in trying to portray her as a bad person while making Usher look like he is the innocent victim.
The reality is this, Usher is a good guy and he is willing to be there for his kids. It is hard to believe his ex wife has the kids’ best interests in mind when she seems to be focusing on the cancellation of a Saks 5th Avenue credit card. Nothing she is saying has to do with him causing harm to the kids or not taking care of them the right way.
