Usher Gets to Keep His Kids After a Bitter Custody Battle With Ex-Wife


After a bitter hearing in court Friday, R&B and “The Voice” star, Usher got the news that he gets to keep his kids. This all stems from Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka, requesting primary custody of their children after a recent near drowning of their 5-year-old son.¬†Usher had primary custody of their two boys.

According to TMZ,¬†Tameka used the pool accident to try and sway the courts to believe that Mr. Raymond was an inattentive father and employer of incompetent caretakers. Even with this event as her ammo, Tameka couldn’t fend off Usher’s lawyers who shot down all her attempts to get her children back.

Usher Raymond V is still in the hospital since the near-drowning. It has been reported that Usher doesn’t want his son leaving the hospital until he is 100% better.

Not so surprisingly, Usher is not the first celebrity to have to deal with some baby mama drama. In times like this, I guess we get to see that celebrities are people too. They have marriages and divorces and custody battles, just like us regular folk. Who knew!? Check out the gallery below to see what other Hollywood folk have had to go to court to keep their kids!
