Usher Awarded Full Custody of Both His Sons
Judge Issues Shocking Ruling Late Yesterday
Usher's bitter, drawn out custody battle for his two sons with ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond is finally over. And in a surprising ruling, the singer was granted full custody of both Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd, 3 yesterday.
Starting September 1, both will move in full-time with their father, while their mother will be granted visitation.
The ruling is surprising in light of the fact that Foster had fought to strip Usher of custody entirely, claiming he's too caught up in his career, partying and women to be a good father. Usher struck back, with his team alleging that Foster is "incapable of being a proper parent" because of serious psychological issues that rendered her unstable.
The already emotionally-charged took an even more dramatic turn in July, when Foster's 11 year-old son (and Usher's former step-son) Kyle Glover was injured in a jet ski accident that eventually led to his death when Foster made the heart-wrenching decision to take him off life-support.
So far, neither side has commented on the ruling. Foster and Raymond divorced in 2009 after less than two years of marriage but the custody battle had been raging on ever since. And although the case is now closed, it's clear there truly is no winner.
