Tameka and Usher Raymond’s second home could be the court house…

The two have not been on the same page for years and after an interesting emergency custody hearing yesterday following their son Usher V nearly drowning at his father’s home the drama is far from over.

Tameka was denied temporary custody and while the two surprisingly hugged it out at the end (see above), this mother says this is not her last efforts and plans to be back in a full court session on August 27th. When asked by HLN’s Ryan Smith how she felt about the outcome, she said:

“I just want to get back to where my son is. I’ll be back in court on the 27th. And we’ll revisit all of this. It was only a very small amount of evidence that was allowed because this was an emergency and we were trying to get something changed immediately. But for the long term, I’ll see on the 27th.”

As for how little Usher is doing she says:

“He’s doing OK. Getting back to normal. Soon I’ll be with him.”

And on that the hug that the R&B singer gave his ex-wife, she says:

“That was a media ploy….”


From the hospital a couple of hours ago, Tameka tweeted:

I feel great this morning! My son and I got a good nights sleep. Didnt even hear the nurses fumbling around. Yaaay, I usually sleep so light

And soon after she retweeted a powerful quote, adding:

This woman is surely not discouraged. We just hope these two can find a way to successfully co-parent soon!
