As HipHollywood previously reported, Usher Raymond’s ex-wife Tameka Foster filed court papers on Tuesday evening for custody of she and Usher’s two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely.
Foster’s motion for an emergency hearing was filed just one day after her son Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in an Atlanta pool.
According to the documents obtained by HipHollywood, Tameka claims that Usher, who has primary custody of the children, is not capable of “providing daily caregiving and supervision” for their two children.
In response to Monday’s pool accident, Foster claims that The Voice coach was “not exercising physical custody of the minor at the time of Monday’s accident and had delegated his supervisory responsibilities to a relative while Usher was out of town.”
“As a result of the “negligence and failure to properly supervise the minor child, Usher Raymond V nearly drowned in a swimming pool and is undergoing treatment for the injuries,” the papers read.
The singer’s ex-wife claims that her children are “at risk while in the hands of third-party caregivers” … “And it is not in the best interest of the minor children to be left alone with third-party caregivers while (Usher) is traveling around the world.”
According to the documents, Usher is preparing to film a movie in Panama and has ongoing commitments that require his presence in LA and New York.
Foster also claims that the 34-year-old does not allowed her to spend extra time with the children.
“(Usher) has denied almost every request I have made to exercise additional parenting time with the minor children,” Tameka states.
“(Usher) has stated in my presence that he would rather the nanny raise the minor children than allow me any additional parenting time outside the specific times.”
Foster alleges that the actor “fired each and every member of his personal staff” and has “hired all new staff members.
Tameka stated,”I have no information regarding the new staff members and have no means of ensuring that they are qualified to care for my minor children.”
An emergency hearing has been set for Friday.
