Fulton County Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane ruled that the singer, 33, will have primary custody of 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond, according to Cherrise Boone, spokeswoman for the court clerk’s office. His custody will start Sept. 1. Boone said Usher and his ex-wife Tameka would have joint legal custody. The type of visitation for Foster has not been determined.
Usher and Foster wed in 2007 before divorcing two years later.
In May, Usher testified that Tameka spit at and tried to fight with his girlfriend during one visit and that his ex-wife hit him during the dispute. He said he didn’t press charges because: “I didn’t want the boys to know that their father put their mother in jail,” he said.
Tameka’s attorney claimed that Usher provoked her client and that his account is exaggerated.
The custody decision comes after Foster’s 11-year-old son Kyle Glover died last month after he was critically injured in a boating accident.
Foster may need to get a regular job soon, no more child support — at least from one of her baby daddies.
