Earlier today, we told you about a horrifying event in which Usher‘s son Usher Raymond V got his arm trapped in a pool drain and was rushed to the ER after he was finally freed from the harrowing situation. He is currently in the ICU and is expected to recover.

In light of these events, Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka — mother to Usher Raymond V — is seeking sole custody of their two kids.

Even though it was a freak accident and her son was being closely watched by Usher’s aunt, who did her best to help in a fast-thinking situation, Tameka has still filed paperwork for an emergency hearing to be held later in the week.

Tameka allegedly has problems with the aunt in question, claiming that she let a “stalker” into the home where Usher and the kids were living, and that she is far too physical with the kids.

The grounds for the hearing itself? Usher is allegedly creating a dangerous environment for their son.

The documents further claim that by having two other people watch their two children, he is “abdicating his parental responsibilities.”

Usher currently has “primary custody” of their two children while Tameka has “limited custodial rights,” rights which she hopes to change this week.
