Usher’s Ex-Wife Tameka Seeks Custody of Sons after Pool Accident

It’s been reported that Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka Raymond has filed for custody of their two sons after Monday’s pool incident in which 5 year old Usher V was left in a coma. Although Usher Jr is said to be in ‘okay’ condition while doctors are still running test, Tameka is said to have filed legal documents asking for custody of their two sons on grounds that Usher is allegedly creating a dangerous environment for their children. According to reports, the documents were filed in Fulton County, Georgia which asked for a hearing in which Tameka is seeking decision-making power over Usher Jr and 4 year old Naviyd. She allegedly claims that Usher is not taking care of his parental responsibilities but instead allowing other people to care for their sons and is even doubtful of the people Usher leaves in charge of watching the boys. Usher’s aunt, Rena Oden, was watching over the youngsters when the accident occurred. Reports state that Usher V was playing in the swimming pool with his aunt Oden when he got his arm caught in the drain when he was attempting to retrieve a toy from the bottom of the pool. Rena immediately attempted to free his hand to no avail but two men working on the grounds dove in and freed Usher V’s arm and then gave him CPR before he was rushed to the hospital. Usher was not home at the time of the incident but as soon as he was notified he rushed to his Atlanta property and rode in the ambulance with his son. They were later joined by Tameka at the hospital. This incident comes a year after Usher’s 11 year old stepson Kile Glover died after he was critically injured in a boating accident.

International superstar Shakira wowed at the 2011 Latin GRAMMYs where she took home the award for “Best Feminine Pop Vocal Album” and performed her hits Antes de la seis and Loca.

She popped in a floor length gold gown with a gold beaded bodice, opting to wear her hair up to display her lovely neck, shoulders and décolletage.

Demi Lovato took a plunge in an eggplant gown that had a neckline that went all the way down to her belly button.  The daring darling said she felt confidant in the Roland Mouret gown and she better cause the overall look was stunning.

Likewise, Usher attended his first Latin GRAMMYs where he performed “Promise” with Romeo Santos from Aventura.

Array Please link to www.mavrixonline.com

Usher has a new fragrance out for the holidays, called Usher VIP, and he recently made a VIP appearance at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC. While he was there, he got into the Christmas spirit and spent some time with Santa and his snazzy boots (with matching belt and suspenders!).

Snaps from the Z100 Jingle Ball

What do you get when you put Adam Lambert, Taylor Swift, Usher and John Mayer together in one place? The annual Z100 Jingle Ball in NYC! I can’t tell you how psyched I am to see that Adam Lambert is still getting performance gigs after the whole ABC fiasco. That was all blown out of proportion if you ask me (you did, right?).

Everyone looked fab, but I have to admit that I swooned a little when I saw John and Taylor do their duet. Is it possible that John is getting even hotter than he used to be? Ever since I heard the song Comfortable, I’ve been a big fan of the J.M. Getting thrown out of a grocery store while wearing sweat pants? Count me in! That’s a song that really speaks to my soul.

Anyway, if you haven’t heard Taylor and John sing their song, you should check it out on YouTube or whatever. His new album is pretty freaking sweet.

How Cute Are Usher and his Kid?

Usher took his mini-me, Usher Raymond V, to the beach the other day, and these photos totally melt my heart. Usher Sr. smiled and dotingly watched over his eldest son as he played with children he met by the ocean.

Later, Usher smiled and chatted with the other parents, even posing for photos with them. What a nice guy!

Is Tameka Foster Okay?

It’s being reported that Usher’s wife and baby momma, Tameka Foster, has “experienced complications from plastic surgery” in Brazil and a neurosurgeon is headed to South America to assist her.

Usher was supposed to perform at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party last night, but never showed up. Clive made an announcement to the crowd, saying that Usher cancelled due to a “serious injury in the family.”

Kanye West’s mother died from complications following plastic surgery not too long ago, so this has the potential to be a pretty serious problem. Hopefully, Tameka pulls out of everything all right.

MavrixOnline Exclusive: Usher at Bank

gt_mx012312008_1.jpg Please link to www.mavrixonline.com

It seems like a ton of celebrities were working last night, hosting parties at all the major nightclubs in all the major cities in America. Personally, I prefer to get drunk and make bad decisions on New Year’s Eve, but to each their own.

Anyway, Usher and Tameka were playing host at Bank night club at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and we got some exclusive pictures of things as they went down. Usher gave a toast to the crowd, and then performed for everyone.

Usher Has A New Baby!

kl_mx0121208_1.jpg Please link to www.mavrixonline.com *** Local Caption *** MAVRIXPHOTO.COM Exclusive!! Usher and his new fiancŽe, Tameka Foster, enjoy a romantic stroll in Beverly Hills, Calif. The couple, who got engaged one month ago, was all smiles and held hands as they shopped. When asked how they were, they replied that they are "...very happy and very much in love." Recent reports say that the couple wishes to wed before the end of the year and also that Tameka is pregnant. Tameka was also pleased to display her huge diamond ring. 05/03/07. All fees must be agreed prior to publication. Byline and/or web usage link must read MAVRIXPHOTO.COM Failure to byline correctly will incur double the agreed fee.

Tameka Foster has popped out another kid, her second by Usher and her fifth overall. It probably cartwheeled out of her hoo-ha! Michelle Duggar better watch her back, because Tameka is going to overtake her in the baby making game.

It’s said that the child is a boy, though nobody knows what his name is. With any luck, it’ll be on par with Harlow Winter, though I’m not holding my breath (their first child together is named Usher Raymond V…snoozefest!).

Regardless of what the name is, congrats to the happy couple and the rest of their family!


It’s A Boy!
