Usher and Deion Sanders probably didn't ring in the new year with a kiss — at least not from their ex-wives Tameka and Pilar. The stars have each been going through courtroom and tabloid drama with their former spouses, and it only seems to be getting worse.
After Ush's ex Tameka Raymond spent most of December trying to get a judge to order a drug test on him and seeking full custody of their two boys, the R&B star is finally fighting back. According to TMZ, he's calling BS on Tameka and asked a judge to reject her request for full custody, on the grounds that her many allegations are false.
Negligence and alleged drug use aside, one of Tameka's major gripes is that Ush cruelly cancelled her Saks 5th Avenue credit card. For the record, Ush denies the claim. Why he would continue to foot his ex-wife's shopping bill is something the judge will have to figure out.
Or, maybe he's taking a cue from Deion Sanders, who seems to have turned his ex-wife Pilar Sanders into a full-blown frenemy. Even as the former couple battle it out over custody and finances in court, they continue to play house in the home they share in Texas.
To be fair, this is no two bedroom condo they're cohabitating in ... it's a 30,000-square-foot mansion with ten bedrooms, thirteen baths and two — yes, two — swimming pools. So, chances are they aren't running into each other in the halls.
Sanders could be motivated to keep his ex as a roommate because their prenup states that, if she moves out, he has to buy her a home worth at least half the value of his own.
We know it goes without saying, but ... mo' money, mo' problems.
