Yesterday, TMZ reported that the eldest son of Usher and Tameka Raymond, Usher V, was rushed to the hospital after drowning in a pool at the singer’s home. Though the child is believed to be in stable condition, Raymond has reportedly filed for emergency custody of Usher V and younger brother Naviyd.
“Usher’s ex-wife has just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing later this week … to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he’s creating a dangerous environment,” says TMZ.
“Tameka Raymond filed the docs in Fulton County, Georgia, claiming Usher is abdicating his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their 2 kids — people who she claims are not on the ball.”
Last year, Tameka mourned the loss of 11-year old Kile, who coincidentally died in a water-related accident, making her most recent actions pretty plausible. It is also rumored that one of the people caring for Usher V at the time of the drowning was an aunt that interfered with the separation of Usher and Tameka years back.
One can only wonder if this unfortunate incident will play out on the Hollywood Exes spinoff.
