NEWS VIDEO: Usher: A Lesson In Child Custody
The unfortunate near drowning of the son of singer Usher Raymond is now at the center of a child custody battle between Usher and his ex-wife, who’s asking a judge to give her custody of their two children. From CNN: Five-year-old Usher Raymond V nearly drowned “in a swimming pool and is currently hospitalized in the intensive care unit of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hospital,” Tameka Foster said in an emergency motion filed Tuesday in a Fulton County, Georgia, court. A hearing is set for an Atlanta courtroom Friday afternoon for the motion, her lawyer said. The other child, Naviyd, is 4 years old. The singer did not address his ex-wife’s allegations or the upcoming hearing. Usher won primary custody of the children last year after a bitter court fight in which Foster accused the singer of being an absentee father. THELAW.TV spoke with Fort Lauderdale, Florida divorce lawyer Yvette Harrell about whether — and how — a non-custodial parent can get a change in custody based on this type of tragic incident.
