The ongoing custody battle between Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster takes an interesting turn as Usher was cross examined. TMZ reports that Usher broke down in tears during his testimony as Tameka’s lawyers attempt to label Usher as a man that would rather take drugs and party than be a father to his two young children. Usher was shown pictures of him at a party in Holland.
The singer admitted to smoking pot in the past, but when the subject turned to his alleged ecstasy use Usher’s lawyer objected.
Usher insisted he never used drugs in front of the children — an allegation Tameka made early in their custody fight — but hedged on the subject of seeing his children while under the influence.
Usher also took the time to tell the court about when Tameka attacked him and his current girlfriend. ABC News reports:
Raymond said in court Monday that he had parked his car at the bottom of a hill some distance from the woman’s home “in an effort to prevent any negative interaction” between Foster and his girlfriend.
Foster asked him repeatedly why he had parked his car so far, and he said he told her to go back inside the house. She refused, and putting down a plate of food she had been holding, followed him to the car.
She walked to the car and pulled the door open “like she wanted to fight,” Raymond said. “She told [Miguel] ‘I’m going to kick your a**, b***h,’” he said.
“We exchanged words. I just told her this was no way to act,” he also said, adding that Foster “threw her plate of food” at his car as he was driving away.
Usher reportedly cut off Tameka’s Saks Fifth Avenue credit card and failed to issue payments to nannies totaling $34,000. While Tameka was on the stand earlier in the court proceedings, she was confronted with claims that she threatened to kill Usher. Tameka said those claims were not true, however she did say that she would “f-ck him up,” giving light to allegations that she is bitter over the divorce.
