Singer Usher's Son Nearly Drowns, Ex-Wife Seeks Custody
Usher Raymond's older son, 5-year-old Usher Raymond V, remains in the intensive care unit at an Atlanta hospital after the boy got his arm stuck in a pool drain and took in too much water on Monday night. According to reports, his aunt, Rena Oden, and the maid dove in and unsuccessfully tried to free his arm. Two men who were working inside the house rescued the boy and gave him CPR before he was taken to the hospital. Although the eldest Raymond wasn't home when the accident occurred, his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, is holding him accountable.
Less than 24 hours after learning that her son narrowly avoided drowning, Foster filed for custody of the couple's children, the hospitalized 5-year-old Usher and 4-year-old Naviyd. The boys' mother is calling for an emergency court hearing next week on the grounds that the singer is creating a "dangerous environment" for their sons. "The children are at risk while in the care of third-party caregivers," Foster indicated in the court filings, while Raymond "travels around the world for his work-related obligations." Currently, Raymond has primary custody of the kids while Foster has limited custodial rights, but now she seeks to reverse the agreement.
Unfortunately, this isn't Foster's first traumatic experience with her children and water. Just over a year ago, Foster's son from a previous relationship, 11-year-old Kile Glover, died after being hit in the head with a jet ski in Georgia's Lake Lanier. Then, Foster accused Raymond of only pretending to care about the young boy's passing. Neither party has commented on the current custodial situation.
