Usher has succeed in winning primary custody of his two children after a court battle with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster Raymond, ended with his victory in an Atlanta court reports the Associated Press.
This means that whilst the two will share legal custody of the two children, Usher will provide the primary parent role and will look after Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3, predominantly, rather than the responsibility being bestowed on his ex-wife. Tameka will be granted visitation rights, but it is unknown just what the details entail for her just yet. Usher's custody will begin as of September 1st.
Usher, real name Usher Raymond IV, married Tameka Raymond in 2007 for two years, during which time Tameka gave birth to their two children. The 'Climax' singer has since said that there is little/no hope of reconciliation between the two and the two have been looking to resolve custody issues since they split.
The decision, which historically goes the way of the mother, is believed to be down to Usher's financial stability as well as the fact that Usher has cited Tameka as being unstable in the past - claiming that she lashed out at him and his current girlfriend during a recent meeting, something that her solicitor played down.
The custody decision also comes at a disheartening period for Tameka, as it has been one month since her 11-year-old son from a previous marriage, Kile Glover, died after he was critically injured in a boating accident. It is unknown whether Kile's death was also put into consideration when the custody hearing was underway.
