Usher Raymond and his ex-wife Tameka’s bitter custody battle continues.
For the record, there has been no decision from the judge regarding Tameka’s motion for a new trial and the couple currently maintains the original “joint” custody agreement that was in place prior to Usher seeking sole custody.
A loyal reader recently sent the following email inquiring about Usher’s motivation for it all:

subject: Usher and ex
They are saying that their divorce decree says that can do this all he has to do is give her 60 days notice….Why is usher going so hard??? I need to know the motives!
Ok “melswife” the first question you should have asked was… ‘is this true?” but I’ll address that in a minute. You wanna know why Ursh is going so hard in the paint on Tameka? I’ll break down the facts for you below:
First thing’s first, my sources have confirmed that the story isn’t true (at least not yet).
It’s true that Tameka still resides in the home that was purchased by the superstar singer, and word on the curb is that it was put up for sale months ago.
Contrary to all of the hearsay, the home isn’t listed (yet) and I find the timing of this most recent rumor a bit odd, considering it’s been floating around for almost two years now.

For the record, Usher has threatened to kick Tameka out of the home MANY times. It’s a form of control.
A well-informed source close to the situation revealed:
Just like he’s using the kids to hurt her, that house has often been that ONE THING Usher had to hold over Meeka’s head. When she doesn’t ‘fall in line’ with Usher’s demands, he (or his high powered PR) go into attack mode.
Now that she’s shown that she’s NOT giving up her fight for the boys, it’s on an poppin yet again.
The home isn’t currently on the market, but my source says that if he does decide to sell it, it’s true that he has to give her 60 days notice AND cut her a check for half of the value of the property.
Ok… not that THAT’s out of the way. I know y’all thought I was kidding when I said that Usher’s been dipping in and out of his ex-wife’s pool even after the divorce, but I wasn’t.
Another bone of contention is Tameka cut him off. The source continues…
I would have cut him off too. Meeka’s a good one! If it was ME… I would have cut his d*ck off.
He expected her to still give it up whenever he was in town. Like she was supposed to go from being his WIFE to his jumpoff? When it became clear that Meeka finally pulled the plug on that cat, he got pissed.
Usher didn’t want her to have the boys around any other men, and even put a clause in their divorce agreement that there were to be “no overnight guests.” The agreement was for them BOTH but he had them around Maya (the bridesmaid he was sleeping with), Grace (his manager/girlfriend) and God knows who else.
So to answer your question about why Usher is going so hard on Tameka… it’s because he’s still gets HARD for Tameka.
