It looks as if the tragedy-induced peace between Usher and his ex-wife will be short-lived. Tameka Foster is downplaying the singer’s sympathy for the recent death of her son Kile, saying Usher only visited the youngster once during his 15 days of life support. TMZ.com cites court documents filed by Foster’s attorney. They’re in response to Usher’s request to delay the next court hearing for his and Tameka’s child custody dispute over their two younger sons. Usher reportedly said the hearing would cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for both himself and Tameka in the immediate wake of Kile’s death. He also suggested Tameka would likely have an unfair advantage because the court would not not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving.
Tameka says Usher’s attempt to postpone the August 13th hearing is “simply a transparent sham.” She says resolving the custody battle is the best way for her to heal and move forward. Eleven-year-old Kile Glover was taken off of life support on July 21st, two weeks after he was declared brain dead following a jet ski accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier.
