Tameka Raymond is taking former hubby Usher all the way to the bank via a custody battle over their sons. She is demanding sole custody of both children claiming that Usher does not involve her “co-parenting” decisions, and he has done the unthinkable – cut off her Saks 5th Avenue card!
TMZ reports that Tameka recently filed court papers in Georgia, claiming that Usher:
-repeatedly FAILED to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids
-never got her approval before hiring nannies or gave her first shot to watch the kids when he’s away for more than 8 hours
-didn’t allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
-didn’t let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010
-And, he closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card
Tameka also claims that Usher’s new girlfriend and manager Grace Miguel has too much influence in Usher’s life and that he has repeatedly made decisions based off what Grace tells him to do with his personal life, instead of discussing it with her.
According to Ms. Raymond, Usher was supposed to pay her $5k per month so she could hire her own nanny, but he’s now $34,000 behind in payments. Tameka believes that she is due more child support now since his career has become more successful and she feels his kids deserve more too.
Sigh. This has the beginnings of a full fledged war. Of course MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
