The ex-wife of American singer, Usher, Tameka Raymond has filed for custody of their two children following Monday’s pool accident, which left their five-year-old Usher V in a coma.
Tameka, filed a legal document on Tuesday, August 6 asking for an emergency hearing on the grounds that Usher is creating a “dangerous environment” for the children and “abdicating” his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their two children.
Apparently, Usher’s aunt – Rena Oden – was supposed to be watching the youngster when his arm got stuck in the pool drain on Monday, which led him to be rushed to intensive care.
Tamara filed documents in Fulton County, Georgia, and asked for the hearing to take place later this week. Usher and Tamara divorced in November 2009.
