Tameka Raymond on Good Morning America


Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond appeared on Good Morning America to clear the air regarding her five-year-old son Usher V's near drowning while in Usher's care and her struggle to regain primary custody of their two sons...

Tameka tells GMA's Dan Abrams,
“I didn’t blame [Usher] for it, I just was angry that it happened on his watch. Because while accidents happen, never have my children been injured on my watch.”
As far as custody goes Tameka explains,
“I’d like to have my first right of refusal, which means that when he is not present the kids come home to their mom, they don’t stay home with the nanny and watch whatever show he’s on, they come home to their mother.”

I simply do not get it…
Who is she? Why do we care what she has to say?
What are her credentials? Accomplishments? Future? Does she have an amazing story to tell? Perhaps inspiring words of wisdom?
NO & NO, NO, NO, NO……
Get this clown the hell outta here…..

.... I see a "talk show tour" in her future.

No fan of either of them, but I don't understand why she would not receive the children when Usher is not present during his visitation times. To have them stay with a relative or nannies is ludicrous to me.

Evidently the courts feel that she is not a good care taker of her children with Usher. Because what court wouldn't have the children be with their stay at home mom who can be with them when their father is out of town working. That says a lot about her and what the court felt about her parenting skills. And by her always on twitter and instagram putting her personal family business out and saying crazy things does not make her look as though she is a capable parent. I am not and Usher fan, but the court must have some type on insight that doesn't make her look good at all.

You can understand why Usher left her ass just for blowing everything outta proportion.
Never understood why he married HER in the first place.

10:59 I agree, why does this have to be worked out in the media? Seems like her focus is on keeping her face and name "out there". I wish they would think about their kids before they threw all their business in the streets for the public to analyze...oh well, I hope the boy is doing well.

Anonymous said...

Tameka, I agree with you. If usher is on tour or otherwise preoccupied, then there isn't any reason why those kids should not be at home with her. It just like when moms put their kids in daycare while their working and daddy's sitting at home on his asses make that nigga watch his kids, instead random people(unqualified people)watching your kids.

I totally agree...why should she not have the kids if he's out of town. Seems like a simple request.

it's real sad when u have to go on natl tv to discuss custody of kids who you carried 9 months and never abused yet you don't have custody of.

LordhavMercy - I'm shocked stunned and confused all the while looking for my baseball bat to put this BAT out to pasture...

Never have her kids been harmed on her watch but one of her sons.... while not on her watch - so what type of parent do you think yourself to be????
You better shut up before you get EFFED UP!

Anonymous said...

I want to know why she does not have custody of any of her kids. Her first ex husband. who is a regular man, has custody of their kids and Usher of his kids. That says alot. Also is she fighting for the other kids too? or just the kids with a rich dad?!??

My .02 Cents.. said...

I was waiting for him to ask her about the custody of her other children.

Like other folks said, why isn't she campaigning for them?

@11:30, that is the million dollar question that no one has asked Tameka as of yet.

Anonymous said...

it's bad luck for her to say that her children have never been hurt on her watch.

children of very good parents get hurt and killed all the time. we are humans and we have accidents and other mishaps, often beyond our control.

she sounds kind of arrogant, plus she is taking a jab at his parenting. so shame on her.

Tameka has no record of physical abuse to her kids
Tameka has no record of verbal abuse, sexual abuse, ne ghetto lect, or harm to her kids
Tameka has no record of being institutionalized for mental impairment, substance, abuse, drug abuse, or being a dangerous mother, or psychotic mother

THEREFORE, why does she not have at least partial custody of the kids? What evidence or record does the courts have to keep her kids away from her?

This sounds like the Atlanta courts were paid off by a rich entertainer and his high powered attorneys

I notice that this only happens when the father is substantially richer than the mother such as Dwade vs Shiovaugn the Usher vs. Tameka, Deon vs. Pilar of salt, and so on. I'm not even a fan of Tameka, but just show me the evidence of how awful of mom people claim she is, if not, then its MONEY that's doing the talking, at the detriment of her kids facing the grim reeper.

Perhaps IF Ms. Raymond had been STAYING AT HOME with the children, when she had primary custody, she would still have them.

She simply got greedy. She had it made. She had mansion, and $8,000 in child support. She decided to get cute and take him back to court to get an increase in child support. Then, allegedly, the accounting of her current judgement was showing her spending money on things that had nothing to do with the kids, when they were not with her. She was traveling without them allegedly. The judge flipped the custody order and she lost the house she was living in with them. Plus Usher is not taking her back to court to get child support decreased, since they are with him majority of the time.

Karma.

TYPO......"Usher is NOW taking her back to get child support decreased"

Yea, I said it said...

My brother has custody of his 4 children. They're regular folks. The judge saw through his ex-wife's bs.
Giving birth to children does not make you a great or loving mother. Courts are starting to realize that fathers can be better parents than mothers who "carried them for 9 months". They know that children are not property or pawns.

Anonymous said...

Did I hear it right when the interviewer said that their are mental health documents saying that Tameka has been diagnosed with a moderate mental disorder... and she responded by saying "YES...and I'm going to be retested". So a legitimate doctor/specialist is saying that she is crazy. Why are you just now going to have this test redone? Why didn't you get this test done when you were first diagnosed? She could have just as easily gone to a reputable doctor and had test done. This maked me think that she might be a little crazy eyed...cause she fights everything else why not this?

Trifling women have been getting by with that BS for years. I don't even know this women but her energy has been slimy and repulsive since she's been in the public eye. Hell, even the way she got with Usher was sneaky and underhanded. Fockher & her kind..
Ugly brickface azz wench

Perhaps if Tameka had not run off to Brazil for plastic surgery when her child was only a few days old; tried to get out of bed before 1pm; had tried to engage with her children more than once every 3-4 days while living in the same house; not let her young son upload a pic of his peen; spent less time on Twitter and changed her name back to Foster... then maybe, just maybe she might have partial custody of her children - all of them. Her first husband is a regular guy and has custody of their children together doesn't he? So, he bribed a judge too huh? Mental health is real people, this lady right here has some serious issues and needs help

The first time her kids have an accident (and they will have accidents )while in her care will relegate her to Negligent parent status, according to her own implications. What a foolish Koon.

I really don't know whats going on with these two grown ups or what the real story is but I do feel sorry for the kids involved. Hope they can work things out so the kids can have a happy normal life... Wishing them the best.

Accidents will happen w/kids (my toddler was right in front of me & snatched a cup of hot coffee in a matter of seconds) I think Tameka is in it for the exposure. Now why was she on GMA? If she is so concerned & want to make a statement....go & do a PSA about safety caps for those pool drains.

Um, the "regular guy" you call Ryan Glover, her first husband? He is the PRESIDENT of Bounce TV, the newest African-American Cable TV network. He is FAR from a "regular guy". He HAS money, thanks...

Her evaluation about her mental state says she is two jokers short from being a deck of cards. Now the bitch says she want to be retest. So I guess she knows the right answers now SMH!!!

I agree with her. She is their mother. How much real care does Usher show to these kids when he works all the damn time?? So wrong. Were he not so bitter and hateful Tameka would not need to go to the media and essentially try use getting a higher profile as leverage.

Mr Raymond played his cards well and paid off all the right people. Of course he was going to fight dirty and be as underhand as possible. Besides what better way to undermine someone than to question mental stability? It worked too!! But if the assertion was correct about her mental state why does she have joint custody of the children? Why is it that her time with the children is not supervised? Too many holes.

I noted during the initial divorce proceedings, where they were trying to work out the child arrangements, Tameka brought up Usher's drug use. Usher refused to confirm or deny his usage and what type of drugs he took. Nor was he pressed on the matter by the judge. Money talks. No doubt.

Anonymous said...

At this point in the game, Tameka is going to have to get some real low down dirty dirt own Usher, in order to use as blackmail Usher or to get the judge to listen. Tameka, time to get your pi on. Do whta you got to do to get your kids, Usher is paying dirty why shouldn't you.

If the kids are better with their father, let it be that. Women need to stop whistling that tune.

And if she was such a "GOOD" mother, why isn't she working in order to contribute to their quality of life? So what if Usher is rich, it's more than about money. Her working would benefit HER, so it would benefit the children in another way.

Bitter women make the worse moms. GET A LIFE for your children't sake.

Tameka suffers from a moderately severe mental disorder and the only true fix is to terminate the breathing process.

Losing one of Usher’s sons would mean a reduction in child support checks. The greater of the two losses would be the monthly check. She talks about a career, where is it, what happened to it and why doesn't she resume it.

Usher deserves all of this. His Mom told him not to marry this trick and he did it anyway. Now he gets his just due from this witch. He is another demon who has fame as his top priority.

I would have more respect for her if only she would use her "celebrity" to focus on a platform of water safety for kids (i.e. pool drain covers, water vehicles when kids are present). Can't stand her! This proves that she is not wrapped too tight.

The fact that she appeared on GMA to complain about this in public instead of being very thankful that her son is alive shows that she has a moderately severe mental disorder

One of the major reason why most father are given custody of their children is become most women find that they can only do one thing at a time. They can't work and keep their kids but men can. They can't obtain an education and keep their kids but men can. They can't cook or clean and keep their kids but men can. You see there are too many things they can't do and keep their kids. Now they can gossip, shop, cheat and lay around but when the kids is involved they can't do none of it. Maybe if women stop complaining about what they can't do it won't be so hard on other women that can doo all those things with their kids. The white people is just tired of seeing lazy black women begging all the time feeling that someone owe them something.

Anonymous said...

7:17. But most fathers aren't given full custody unless they are distinguished and very rich, otherwise, it's custody that is divided evenly or how ever both parents see fit, which makes all what you just said jibberish.

Tameka is a strong Black Heaux and she is just Black. Nothing special just a Black Heaux 24/7. March in a parade with that banner. It is this kind of BS (mindset) that keeps black women in the US on the lowest of low levels in the world. Pick a worth wile battle to put your mind and energy behind. Tameka a major loser and means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

@7:17 You sound beyond stupid. I can't even comment further on your BS.
@7:32 Your statement isn't true. You don't have to be rich and distinguished and your kids mother doesn't have to be bat shit crazy for you to gain full custody of your children. I know several average men who have won full custody simply because they fought for their kids just as hard as the mothers did. It doesn't always work out in the mother's favor like every idiot thinks.

There are many sad things happening within this dynamic. This woman, obviously, loves her children. The courts have deemed her to be lacking as a caregiver. I don't think Usher has a time machine and, was able to travel backward in time to make this woman lose custody of her other children. Fast forward, she also lost the custody of her last brood with Usher. I don't think it's a question of why; the why has been laid out privately in different courts, before different judges ruling against her. She needs to fix herself, and she's not fixing herself parading through the media. It isn't our business to know what is wrong; it seems pretty clear what is wrong. I have a feeling, this fame chasing is one of her biggest addictions and is keeping her from being a true mother to her children. The media is only enabling her and I find it to be the saddest part. They don't have use her, no matter how many times she begs for camera time. I think she has self control issues, and it must be strong. The plastic surgery fiasco was extremely telling.
