Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster had an ugly custody battle, which they put aside when her son and his stepson sustained brain damage and eventually died over the summer. Ush and Tam were fighting over custody of their sons, Usher V, four, and Naviyd, three. He won primary custody.
Usher refuted Foster's claims that he was an MIA dad, saying, "(I was) absentee from the aspect of having to go and work, that probably would be her version or idea what absentee would be. But no, I'm not an absentee father at all… I was born to do what I'm doing as a dad. I realised that once I had a child. When I had them, that's when they became a priority… Having not had a father (myself) wasn't a reason not to be a good father."
As for his relationship with Foster, he said, "We don't see eye-to-eye. The friend that I was to Tameka, I don't know that I could ever be again, because I really felt like we were friends. She made us enemies in a way that I could never understood."
Sometimes things just implode in marriages and relationships.
