Usher awarded custody of two boys and Tameka wants appeal

By Kendria Brown, NDG Intern

The battle of custody over Tameka’s and Usher’s two sons is finally over, at least for now. R&B singer Usher was awarded primary custody of their two boys, Naviyd Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V, ages 3 and 4.

Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane of Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta ruled in favor of Usher, giving him custody of his two boys beginning September 1. However Tameka feels that the judge made a biased decision and the ruling was unfair to say the least.

Tameka found out that in 2008, Usher’s law representatives and law firm had an election fundraiser for the presiding judge over the case. Judge Lane is said to have received $1,278 in campaign contributions from Usher’s law firm. Due to this reason, Tameka feels that the judge ruled in Usher’s favor.

Tameka notes Usher as being the unlikely custodial parent since he is constantly on the road and she has a more stable schedule for the boys. Tameka does not see the reason why Usher should be given primary custody, and she is planning to appeal the decision made in court right away.

Tameka and Usher have had a rocky relationship and just last month, Tameka lost her 11-year-old son Kile Glover in a boating accident. Do you think it is fair to have the custodial decision made at this time in light of Tameka’s recent passing away of her son?
