Usher takes it to the Pop charts as he releases the video for his single “Numb”. Mr. Raymond gives us a glimpse into his life as pictures from his family life and past moments in his career flash on the screen throughout the video.
Check out the video and let me know what you think.
Usher is preparing to release his 2010 CD Raymond v. Raymond. Ursh plans on dropping ‘Looking For Myself’” on June 12 via RCA records.
The project’s lead single “Climax” is currently # 40 on the Billboard top 200 chart and moving up fast. Mr. Raymond is currently in the studio working with producers Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Salaam Remi, and Max Martin, among others.
So now Tameka Raymond Foster is claiming that her ex husband Usher is a drug addict. She told a judge that she found some “mystery pills” in his pants back in 2008.
The custody battle between Usher Raymond and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, is turning to war: Justin Bieber mentor Usher last week rejected a demand by his ex to submit to drug testing after she alleged he was “in delirium” during a January concert in Germany. The court drama follows a move in January by the R&B singer to obtain sole custody of their two sons, Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 2. Sources told us that Usher filed the motion after he asked to take the kids on his world tour and Foster refused. In October, Foster fired back a response to Usher’s request, saying that her ex-husband has violated several provisions in their custody agreement, including not allowing Foster to see the children on Christmas last year and not paying $34,000 for nanny services.
She also filed a request for Raymond to submit to drug testing, claiming she found mysterious pills in his jeans pockets in September 2008, and that she believed he was wasted during the Germany concert, according to court documents. Foster, however, alleges he was under the influence of something. “I dated him . . . when he’s had a very serious throat condition and he still performs like a champ,” she said. “ I really feel strongly that something was going on there, and it wasn’t, ‘Oh I have laryngitis.’ ”
She made a further claim in the deposition: “I believe he gets high. And if he doesn’t then he’d take the drug test, correct?” Raymond filed a response to Foster’s allegations last week, calling Foster’s drug test request “frivolous and unfounded,” and intended to “harass and embarrass” the singer.
Sh*t is bout to get REAL for Usher. His ex wife Tameka Raymond is asking a Georgia judge to take Usher’s two sons away from him immediately. Tameka says that Ursh hasn’t been living up to his end of the custody arrangement AND she is pissed because he cut off her Saks 5th Avenue credit card.
Tameka Raymond — who had 2 kids with Usher during their brief 2 year marriage — filed court papers in Georgia … asking a judge to strip Usher of joint physical custody of their children ASAP.
According to the docs, Tameka claims Usher has repeatedly FAILED to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids … which he’s legally obligated to do.
But there’s more … a lot more.
Tameka also claims Usher is required and 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
Tameka also claims Usher closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card — which he specifically said he wouldn’t do — and now she can no longer take advantage of the “special benefits” the card offers.
According to the docs, Usher also promised to pay $5k per month so Tameka could hire her own nanny for the kids — but he hasn’t paid in months, and now owes $34,000 worth of payments.
Tameka also claims there has been a “substantial change in [Usher's] income” since they got divorced — and because of his success, she should get even more money for child support.
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Wednesday.
SMMFH… An old head once told me that it’s cheaper to keep her…
A few months ago Usher got got for about a million dollars worth of jewelery and other items. One of the items that was snatched was a laptop. According to TMZ, there is a sextape that is being auctioned off that features Usher and Tameka making love faces.
TMZ was approached several days ago by someone claiming to have the sex tape. The person sent us a short video and two photos. We’ll keep this PG-13 and just say … the people in the video are both givers.
The video and photos are clear — it’s Usher and Tameka.
Sources close to Usher — without specifically admitting the existence of a sex tape — tell us they believe this video could have been among the things Usher had stolen out of his car back in December 2009. Usher reported more than $1,000,000 worth of jewelry and electronics taken — including two laptop computers.
A rep for Usher had no comment. Attempts to contact a rep for Foster were unsuccessful.
