R&B singer Usher has won his custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster for their two sons.
Tameka tried to portray Usher as an absentee father who was more interested in his music career. Usher said Foster was an inattentive mother.
The former couple has been locked in a bitter custody battle over their sons, Usher, 4 and Naviyd, 3, but the judge awarded primary custody of the children to their father in court today.
Tameka was granted custodial rights, which have yet to be revealed.
The decision comes days after the same judge ordered Usher to reopen his ex-wife’s credit card account at Saks Fifth Avenue after closing them last year. The judge also ordered the singer to pay his ex-wife’s childcare bills.
Usher and Tameka divorced in 2009 after only two years of marriage.
The judge’s ruling is sure to be rough on Tameka, who just lost her 11-year-old son, Kile Glover, in July after he was declared brain dead after a jet-ski accident.
Usher requested the child custody court proceedings be postponed to allow himself and Foster to recover fully from the tragedy, but Foster insisted the singer’s concerns were bogus and urged the judge to continue the custody hearing.
