Usher’s ex-wife claims that he barely saw Kile while he was on life support and that reports of Usher’s grief are exaggerated. Can you believe that? Read on for the details.
Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster have just gone through the tragedy of laying Tameka’s son Kile to rest after losing his life in a horrific jet-skiing accident. But as their custody battle still rages on, Tameka is claiming that Usher’s grief is only a legal tactic.
TMZ reports that Usher had asked the court to delay the next hearing in their custody battle because he claims it will cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for himself, Tameka, and their two children “in the immediate wake of the tragedy.” Usher also claims that Tameka would get an unfair advantage because the court wouldn’t want to rule against a grieving woman, leading him to fear her could lose his children.
But, TMZ says, Tameka has filed her own claim with the court, saying that Usher’s claims of “stress and strain” are “bogus.” “[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once” during the 15 days he was on life support, Tameka claims. She also claims that she had requested Usher tweet a message about her son, “Please pray for Kile,” but he refused.
Tameka says that Usher’s request to postpone is “simply a transparent sham” and asks the judge to deny his request and require that he appear at their next hearing, schedule for August 13. She says that resolving this custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move on with her life.
