Tameka Loses Court Battle, Usher Gets Primary Custody
Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

From TMZ.

A judge has awarded Usher primary custody of his two sons after a nasty court battle with his ex-wife Tameka Raymond.

The singer and the former Mrs. Raymond made headlines over the past few months, as each parent accused the other of being unfit to raise their young children. Usher often characterized Tameka as violent toward him and his girlfriend, and as a irresponsible mother, while Tameka had accused the singer of focusing too much on his music career and using drugs.
