Tameka Raymond Files for Custody of Children

Usher's ex-wife claims the kids are in a dangerous environment.

Published August 7, 2013

Tameka Raymond, Usher's ex-wife, filed legal documents asking for a hearing to gain full custody of her two children. Raymond claims the R&B star is creating a dangerous environment for their sons, according to TMZ.

Tameka Raymond filed the documents in Fulton County, Georgia, arguing that Usher, 34, is letting others care for their two kids, which is creating a dangerous environment. TMZ also says Tameka and Usher's aunt (who was watching five-year-old Usher Raymond V on Monday when his arm got stuck in the pool drain) have feuded in the past. Tameka complained Usher's aunt is too strict of a disciplinarian and once let a stalker in the home. Nonetheless, in April of 2012, Tameka lost full custody of her two sons with Usher.

Usher has yet to release a statement.
