Following a terrifying pool accident that nearly killed The Voice judge Usher’s son, Tameka Foster hoped that she would finally be able to obtain custody of her boys. But her efforts ultimately did not prove successful — Usher will retain custody of Usher Raymond V.
Tameka Foster is surely furious that her ex-husband Usher still holds primary custody of her children. She has already made it clear that she doesn’t think the singer is doing a respectable job of parenting his kids, leaving many of the childcare duties to an aunt that Tameka feels is an even worse caretaker. She underscored this point by posting a picture of Usher Raymond V in the hospital, eliciting sympathy from her followers.
There’s plenty more sympathy to come, for Tameka did not wind up getting her way in court. Although she protested that her son had “suffered a near-death accident” and that her ex-husband’s absence may have been to blame, the Atlanta judge ultimately ruled in Usher’s favor.
As you might expect, Usher was overjoyed by the judge’s decision. He later told the New York Daily News, “I just want what’s best for my babies.” He’s also relieved that Usher Raymond V is making such a quick recovery. The singer offered profuse thank yous too all the Twitter followers who had offered support, tweeting, “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family’s well-being.”
We can see that proud daddy Usher loves his kids and we hope that they remain safe in the future.
