Judge grants emergency custody hearing for Usher’s ex-wife

Judge John Goger approved the emergency custody hearing requested in Fulton County Superior Court by Grammy-winning R&B artist Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster Raymond, on Tuesday, August 6 after one of their sons nearly drowned while under Usher’s care.

According to the court filing, the boy “suffered a near-death accident” while he was swimming unsupervised in a pool in the singer’s Atlanta home. In the incident, he got stuck in a pool drain. After others were unable to free the boy, a contractor doing work at the house pulled the boy out of the pool and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him.

In a sworn statement attached to the court filing, Tameka said Usher has committed parental mistakes by failing to discuss issues affecting the children with her as he travels around the world because of his career.
