Usher Ex-Wife Tameka Foster Files Motion for New Trial in Custody Fight


Tameka Foster, Usher Raymond’s ex-wife, has filed a motion for a new trial in her custody battle with Usher, claiming the judge was biased in Usher’s favor because of previous ties to him.

Raymond was awarded primary custody of sons Usher V, 4,  and Naviyd, 3, last week by Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane.

Foster believed the ruling was unfair and thinks a connection between Raymond’s lawyer and the judge might have influenced the decision. The law firm that represented Usher held a fundraiser for Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane in 2008 that raised $1,278. That was nearly half of the contributions to the judge’s re-election campaign in 2008.

Tameka alleges Usher’s lawyer served on the judge’s re-election campaign committee.

Foster even alluded to money being a factor in the decision on her Twitter page after the decision was announced.

“A woman’s loyalty is tested when her man has nothing. A man’s loyalty is tested when he has everything!” she tweeted.  “Don’t fear the enemy that attacks you. Fear the fake friend that hugs you. There’s not much worse. Money can buy many things. But in the end. Truth & goodness will prevail. I must continue to believe this. Stand firm.”

Foster was shocked at the decision because she argued in court that Usher’s tour schedule would prevent him from being able to effectively raise the children.

Foster also claims that no evidence was presented showing she couldn’t take care of her kids.
