Usher Custody Battle

Usher has baby drama — his ex is asking a judge to take away his joint custody ASAP!

Usher’s ex Tameka Raymond says the singer has totally failed in his co-parenting legal obligations, and now she’s filed court papers in Georgia. According to TMZ, the docs lay some heavy claims against Usher — she’s even upset he closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card!

Here’s a few of the claims Tameka is making about Usher:

  • He failed to get her approval before hiring nannies
  • He didn’t give her the first shot to watch the kids while he’s away for more than 8 hours
  • She wasn’t allowed to take the kids for two weeks in the summer of 2011
  • She wasn’t given custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010

But even worse… he had the audacity to close her Saks 5th Avenue credit card, even though he said he wouldn’t! Now she can’t take advantage of the “special benefits” the card offers.

Tameka also says that he owes her $34,000 in payments — the docs say he promised her $5k a month so she could hire a nanny — and she wants MORE money in child support because he’s had a “substantial change in income” since their divorce. The couple were only married for two years, but they have two kids, Usher V, 3, and Naviyd, 2.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Is Tameka right to take Usher to court, or do you think she’s just in it for the money?
