Attorney labels Usher's ex 'incapable'

2012-08-20 17:49
Los Angeles - Usher's attorney has labelled his ex-wife Tameka Foster "incapable of being a proper parent" to their children.

The former couple was in court last week for the latest stage of their ongoing custody battle over sons Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, 3.

Usher is seeking sole custody and has accused Tameka of trying to interfere with the time he was allowed with their kids under their joint custody arrangement. This is a charge which she later denied.

MyFoxAtlanta reported that during last Thursday's closing arguments in Fulton County, Georgia, the legal representative said that Tameka "does not have the emotional stability or capacity to bond with them, and therefore she is handicapped".

Support payments increase

Tameka's attorney counter argued that Usher travels all the time and does not have a good relationship with his mother. His mother which was part of the family unit that would help take care of Usher V and Navyid when he was on the road also testified in the court hearing.

During the hearing on 14 August Tameka, who is looking to retain joint custody and have her monthly support payments increased from $8 000 to $11 000, testified that she "begged" her Usher not to seek sole custody.

"I was like, 'It's ridiculous, are you mad me? I don't know why. You know your kids are fine. They're happy. They're productive. They read, they spell. They're clean, they're fed.' Maybe I don't do everything perfectly, but I do the best I can," said Tameka.
