Early Tuesday, we learned that Usher and Tamaka Raymond’s five year old son, Usher Raymond V, was in a serious accident in Usher’s pool. Reportedly, the incident happened Monday evening, around 6 p.m. at Usher’s Atlanta home and the singer was not present. TMZ reports:
The child was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain. He dove down to get the toy and his arm got stuck in the drain. The aunt immediately dove in to rescue him but couldn’t get his hand out. The maid then dove in and tried but was also unsuccessful. The maid screamed for help. Two men working in the house came out, dove in and freed the boy. He was given CPR immediately and rushed to the hospital. Usher arrived and drove in the ambulance with his son.
So what’s the latest?
As of Tuesday evening, it has been reported that Usher V is doing fine, but there’s another issue. Tameka is fighting for full custody of her children, again. Reportedly, after Monday evening’s scare with their son, she filed court documents for an emergency custody hearing. In the legal documents, it is noted that their son was under the care of Usher’s aunt. Tameka claims that Usher created a dangerous environment for their sons by allowing others to watch them. Madame Noire reports:
Tameka has complained about this woman before, saying that she let a stalker in the house where Usher and their sons were staying. Tameka also claims this same aunt is aggressive in disciplining the boys.
Stay tuned, as this too may also play out in the public/press.
