Judge sides with Usher in child custody battle
ATLANTA (AP) - A judge has dismissed an emergency request by R&B singer Usher's ex-wife seeking temporary custody of their two children.
Tameka Foster Raymond had requested the hearing after their five-year-old son got caught in a pool drain while left unsupervised at Usher's home on Monday.
After a hearing in which both Usher and Raymond took the stand, the judge dismissed her request for temporary primary custody and decision-making authority.
Raymond's court filing said their son "suffered a near-death accident".
