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.More under the break......
Tameka also claims Usher is required and has failed to:$34k?!?!? Oh Usher, STOP IT! We know you got it!
-- 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.*sigh* Divorces, especially when kids are involved, are always a tricky thing! Ill feelings that still linger are usually behind a lot of the "battles", and guess who pays the price......*ding ding ding* THE CHILDREN! Hopefully their issues can be resolved, because at the end of the day.....is it THAT serious? Probably not....
