Tameka Raymond Reveals Past Criminal Activities In Court & Her Issues With Usher

tameka raymond usher custody battle

The Tameka Raymond Usher custody battle resumed earlier this week on Monday as Usher and his ex-wife appeared back in the courtroom in Fulton County, Georgia. The hearing took place only a few weeks after the tragic death of Tameka Raymond’s son Kile Glover who was fatally injured in a jet ski accident. Though many people hoped that Usher and Tameka would drop the custody battle and agree to have joint custody, especially after the loss of Tameka’s son, but the two have continued on with it.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported on the hearing that took placed on Monday, highlighting the arrangement that Tameka and Usher had concerning visitation rights and who full custody should be given to:

Raymond and Foster have a co-parenting agreement for 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd, but Raymond is seeking sole custody of the boys, saying Foster is not a good mother.

In video of this week’s proceeding, Raymond told the court Monday that he tries to focus on his children when they are with him, but sometimes he has to juggle other commitments.

“I try to do all of my work when I don’t have the children, but there may be times when there’s an obligation of something that comes up,” he said.

According the AJC, Tameka Raymond responded to Usher’s statements the following day, saying that the scheduled visitation days were not followed through with due to the passing of her son:

“Of course, there was no provision for visitation regarding the death of a child. I’m sorry I didn’t stick with my visit days, but my son passed,”

When asked about her past, Tameka Raymond admitted to not being the most responsible person,  writing bad checks and stealing too:

“Yes, I stole things,” Foster said. “I stole diapers before. I’ve gone in 7-Eleven and stolen diapers out of the store. I admit it. I was 19 years old. I’m not proud of it. I wouldn’t do it now.”

Tameka acknowledged that she is not a perfect person and has grown since then. And she also says that she “begged” Usher to withdraw his petition against her:

“I was like, ‘It’s ridiculous, are you mad at me? I don’t know why. You know your kids are fine. They’re happy. They’re productive.’ … Maybe I don’t do everything perfectly, but I do the best I can,”

The AJC also revealed that Tameka Raymond stated in her filing that Usher “visited Kile in the hospital only once,” during his days on life support. Tameka said that Usher didn’t care about her or Kile and when asked to tweet “Please Pray For Kile” from his Twitter account, Usher refused to do so. This may seem odd as Tameka denied saying that Usher faked sympathy for Kile in response to an article published by TMZ.

For both their sakes and their children’s, we hope that Tameka and Usher can come to a final agreement soon.



  1. She stole, and that’s not a good look but I really don’t see how Tameka is the bad person Usher wants to paint her as. I think she stands up for herself and because of that people (especially females) don’t like her.

  2. Tameka is not as terrible as everyone and the blogs are trying to make her out to be. I met Usher (I live in the A) while he was married to Tameka, and she was a sweetheart! Usher was the one with the stank attitude. He treated me like I was a peasant. Tameka is cool until you try to come for her. Then she will drag you and come down to her hater’s level. But if people stopped letting the blogs determine how they felt about people they don’t know personally, they’d know that Usher is more dirty of a person than Tameka is.

    1. See. This is why I’m Team Tameka. I’ve ran into her many times, and she’s been nice every single time. Usher sickens me with how low he’s gone to make her look bad and make himself look like the victim. Karma will make him regret what he’s done.

  3. Damn she had a baby as a teen? Didn’t know that. I hope the media doesn’t drag this woman during this trial again because she is still mourning her son.

  4. I can’t understand why they both can’t agree to joint custody. Neither one of them have proven to be bad parents. This whole situation is silly to me.
