Usher has won the very bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster! The nasty trial came to a close on Friday, when a Georgia Superior Court judge ruled in the singer’s favor, granting him primary custody of the former couple’s sons, Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3.
The pair will share legal custody of the boys, but visitation rights haven’t been nailed down yet. Usher gains custody on September 1.
The decision comes at the end of a very long and emotional legal dispute. With that said, Tameka isn’t conceding yet. She took to Twitter and said “Money can buy many things… But in the end. Truth & goodness will prevail. I must continue to believe this. Stand firm.”
In another tweet, Foster wrote: “A woman’s loyalty is tested when her man has nothing… A mans loyalty is tested when he has everything!” She continued, “Don’t fear the enemy that attacks you… Fear the fake friend that hugs you. There’s not much worse.”
And now, TMZ is reporting that Tameka is appealing the decision.
Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond is PISSED over her recent loss in court and believes the ruling could be the result of a biased judge … so she’s gearing up to file an appeal, TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story … Tameka lost a hard-fought custody battle on Friday when a judge ruled in Usher’s favor and granted primary custody of their two young children to the singer.
But sources close to Tameka tell TMZ, she feels the ruling was unfair. We’re told Tameka recently found out that Usher’s lawyer’s law firm threw an election fundraiser back in 2008 for the judge who presided over the trial … and she feels that connection may have influenced the ruling.
According to the campaign contribution report for Judge Lane, the law firm that represented Usher raised $1,278 for Lane in March 2008.
Sources tell us … Tameka is baffled by the decision because she argued in court that Usher is constantly on the road, where as she has the more stable schedule … thus it makes no sense to give him primary custody.
We’re told Tameka wants to fight the decision ASAP and is interviewing lawyers for an appeal.
We reached out to the judge for comment, but so far no word back.
As a mom, I cannot imagine ever being put in this situation. I’m so grateful for the fact that I’m still with my husband, and I don’t need to worry about things like custody. I might actually explode or hire a hit man if anyone tries taking my boys from me. I feel like in situations like this – no one wins. Not Usher, not Tameka, not those poor boys. Tameka has other children. If Usher takes primary custody of his sons, then he’s splitting up siblings. Just sucks all the way around. Divorce is so sad.
