Raymond, looking dapper in his Puma/Nike ensemble, appeared all smiles as he prepared to rev up his sexy black motorcycle and I’ve learned from a credible source that he’s also readying to continue that nasty custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Raymond.
Yes… you read right! Just days after the poor woman buried her child, Raymond is going full steam ahead to snatch full custody of her two youngest!
Full details + more photos below:
Family friends have confirmed that while Usher briefly appeared at the funeral for Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover’s youngest son Kile, he dipped out without even offering his condolences to any of the family.
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.

Oh but wait… there’s more!
My very credible source told me that in addition to not responding to Tameka’s humble requests to help save his stepson’s life, Usher is still going full steam ahead in his attempts to gain full custody of their two kids.
It’s my understanding that they’re scheduled to resume the case in court Aug. 13th.
The story that leaked during Tameka son Kile’s hospitalization about Usher wanting to drop the custody battle was totally FALSE (click HERE if you missed it). My source believes that it was Usher’s camp who leaked the fake story knowing full well the case was to resume in August.
Usher had no intention of dropping that custody dispute and his high powered PR team leaked that fake story about him wanting to settle, hoping fans would think that it was Tameka who is being uncooperative but that is so far from the truth.
When I heard this my heart totally went out to Tameka. While everyone knows we’ve had our issues in the past, the one thing that I’ve never doubted is her dedication as a mother.
You’d think that a superstar who sings so articulately about love & relationships could give a mother time to grieve her son’s death before diving right back into the fighting ring.
But I guess life goes on… why should Usher care about an 11 year old’s death when there are grudges to hold (and old broads to ride around on bikes)??
