Usher Cries In Court As Parenting Skills Come Under Attack
Usher’s testimony in his child custody trial in Atlanta came with a few tears on Tuesday. The R&B singer broke down on the stand as lawyers for his ex-wife tried to paint him as a father who cared more about partying than his children. Tameka Foster’s lawyers provided pictures of the singer hanging out in a nightclub in Europe in February. According to TMZ.com, they also questioned Usher about his drug use. The singer admitted to smoking marijuana in the past but denied ever using drugs in front of his children. TMZ says Usher did, however, offer a vague response on the subject of seeing his children while under the influence.
Usher blasted his ex-wife in court on Monday, telling the court about an incident when Tameka spat on his girlfriend when she accompanied him to Tameka’s house to drop off his son. The singer said Tameka wanted to fight and threw a plate of food at his car as he drove away from the scene. Usher and Tameka married in August 2007. They have two sons together. Usher filed for divorce in June 2009.
