The judge heard testimony from Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond on Friday afternoon at an emergency custody hearing granted to Tameka after the couple’s oldest son together was involved in a serious pool accident that almost took the 5 year old’s life. This comes less than a year since the tragic boating accident that killed Tameka’s 8 year old son Kile. Usher V was trying to retrieve a toy from the bottom of the pool and got his arm stuck in the pool drain. His caregiver (Usher’s aunt) was unable to release the boy and luckily a man working at the home was able to rescue him.
The judge ruled that none of the testimony convinced him that the current custody arrangements need to change so he dismissed Tameka’s motion to get custody of the kids. The judge did advice Usher to notify Tameka of his absences and who will be caring for the children in the future. Usher Raymond V is expected to make a full recovery.
