It looks like things are starting to heat up in the courtroom between Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster.
According to TMZ, the Confessions singer, 33 – whose full name is Usher Terry Raymond IV – has been on and off the stands in an Atlanta, Georgia courtroom this week in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife over custody of their sons Usher Raymond V, 4, and 3-year-old Naviyd.
Tameka is seeking full custody while Usher is asking for increased visitation.
In a heated courtroom session on Wednesday (May 23), Tameka’s attorney accused Usher of cheating on his then wife.
When Usher claimed that his ex brought nannies in and out of their children’s lives, Tameka’s lawyer fired back, “Miss Williams actually traveled to Miami with you and baby Usher. She was a nanny for you, was she not? Miss Williams left Miami because you were discovered in bed with Maya Fox Davis?”
TMZ reports that Maya Davis was a bridesmaid at Usher and Tameka’s wedding.
Usher’s lawyer objected immediately and pointed out that they were not trying a divorce case.
On Monday (May 21), Usher broke down and cried in court when Tameka’s lawyer displayed photos of him with friends in Europe, suggesting he cares more about social life than his children.
However, the R&B artist retaliated with accusations that his ex threw food and spit on his girlfriend.
“Of course I tried my hardest to prevent the situation from escalating,” he said. “But she continued to swing, spit…It basically was an attack on [my girlfriend, Grace Miguel].”
Usher’s trial is now in recess and won’t be back in session until July.
