Usher’s Ex Tameka Raymond Seeks Full Custody of Sons After ‘Failed Obligation’

After escaping a messy public divorce, it seems Usher will be heading into a chaotic custody battle. According to court documents revealed Tuesday (November 29), ex-wife Tameka Raymond is seeking full custody of their two sons, insisting the Grammy winner has failed to abide by terms of their divorce.

Foster filed legal documents in a Georgia court asking a judge to strip Usher of joint custody of Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely immediately. According to the hair stylist, Usher “has repeatedly FAILED to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids … which he’s legally obligated to do.”

In all, the documents state that Usher is required but has failed to:

– get her approval before hiring nannies
– give her first shot to watch the kids when he’s away for more than 8 hours
– allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
– let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010

Additionally, Raymond says Usher agreed to pay 5,000 a month for a Nanny but has not paid in months and now owes $34,000. She says he also cut off her SAKS 5th Avenue credit card.

The couple divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage. A hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday.
