In today’s boo-hiss report, Usher is being accused of fronting about being broken up about the death of his stepson in order to gain sympathy from the public while proceeding with his nasty custody fight with ex-wife and grieving mother, Tameka Raymond.
We feel like the only reason he came at all is because the media kept portraying Kile as “Usher’s stepson.”
He wasn’t supportive to the family at all and we feel he used the situation to draw sympathy from his fans.
The sad thing about this entire situation is that Tameka swallowed her pride and actually reached out to Usher while Kile was hospitalized.
She could never get him on the phone so she left a message begging him to help her with some of the expenses her insurance wouldn’t cover.
He never returned her calls and when Kile passed away Tameka reached out to him again and he still hasn’t responded to this day.
Now Tameka is fighting back (via TMZ):
Tameka Raymond‘s lawyer has filed new documents in the couple’s bitter child custody war … slamming Usher … who asked the court to delay the next hearing in light of the death of Tameka’s son, Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.
In his request, Usher claims he’s worried the hearing would cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children “in the immediate wake of this tragedy.”
Usher also claims Tameka would get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son. Usher fears he could lose custody of the children and believes it would be unfair to him.
But in docs of her own … Tameka’s lawyer claims Usher is full of crap … insisting U’s claims of suffering “stress and strain” are “BOGUS.”
In fact, she claims Usher didn’t care about her son at all in his final days — even though Usher regarded him as a son back when they were married.
“[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once” during his 15 days on life support … Tameka claims.
She also claims she had begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, “Please pray for Kile” … but he refused. Instead, Tameka claims, Usher’s next tweet was a photo of his own breakfast with the caption, “Breakfast of Champions.”
In her docs, Tameka claims Usher’s attempt to postpone the hearing is “simply a transparent sham” … and asks the judge to DENY Usher’s request and require him to appear at the next scheduled hearing, set for August 13.
She also claims resolving the custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move forward with her life.
