Usher's battle for visitation rights with his two sons has struck a nerve.
The R&B star teared up on the stand Monday in Atlanta as he testified against his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, who according to ABC News is seeking full custody of their sons. The couple divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage.
While on the stand, the "Climax" crooner recounted a tale of violence between Foster and his reported current stylist and girlfriend, Grace Miguel.
He described showing up at Foster’s home to drop off one of the boys and getting caught in a physical confrontation between the two women. He claimed Foster spit at and tried to fight Miguel.
"I got out of the driver's side, went around to the passenger's side ... and had to wedge myself in between the door and Ms. Foster to prevent her from acting out," he said. "I tried to talk some sense into her, and she was, you know, screaming and spitting and fighting, and she hit me. And I said, this is no way to act."
Usher kept his composure as he recounted the alleged event, but the singer grew emotional when questioned by Foster’s lawyers about his capabilities as a dad. He dabbed his eyes with a tissue and was noticeably upset as Foster's attorney asked him about drug use.
Usher is expected to release his seventh studio album, “Looking 4 Myself,” on June 11.
Usher, you got to vet these women. Look what happened to john mccain.
Mark Harmon and Tom Selleck are great actor's and real men.
Meg Mundy is seekin acting parts.
Usher will be back on top.
Frank Cady is 99 and continues to act and sing and dance.
Not ever man can be Kirk Douglas, Usher is a kind sensitive man.
Like this vid...usher in tears! haha
He is black!
Looks like mommy was right about her, huh boo boo? Yeah....next time you'll listen when your mom doesn't approve, won't we?
Standard dirty tricks by his ex-wife will do the talking and walking. He will lose tha castody – it was and is and will be that way.
Even with fame and money, it seems that Black men cannot behave appropriately and be a true father figure. Shameful
First, explain what HE did that was so wrong? Second, how the hell can you make a generalization about any ENTIRE racial group? Racist jerk
@ Fed Up, why single out black men, dbags come in ALL colors, take it from a black woman who used to be married to a white man.
Deny visitation to the father hurts the children more than anyone else.If this idiot attorney thinks the courts will deny the father those rights then I have some beachfront property to sell you in the Everglades.
These is the dumbest comment wall in internet history. You're all pathetic.
Well, yeah. Anytime there's celebrity news the point of it is to feel better than the celebrity. So commentators on forums such as these load up their cannons and release such vitriol you'd think that they were personally wronged by the subject of the articles. I'd wager most people here have never bothered to listen to Usher or give him a red cent of their money, but look how much anger and hatred comes through in their words.
I don't care if they like Usher, I'm not asking them to... it's just sad to see. But show a video of some unruly teenagers and these same individuals will be decrying the downfall of society and where did it go wrong? Well, here's a novel idea - showing strangers some basic respect and politeness, even when they're not around to see or hear it, would be a glorious first step.
So, yes. The comments here really gain nothing or show temperance or self-moderation, but you can't really expect that. It's a rarity these days.
As is your grammer.
Karma is a B%TCH! He should have never screwed over Chili from TLC. I know she loved him dearly! And he was out there.....Like they always say...I guess you hurt the ones you truly love.

Listening to this clown singing makes me cry.

Men don't cry, Usher is a pu55y.
I think you meant:
"Usher gets pu55y!"
Wait, R Kelly has kids? I don't think he deserves visitation rights after all the dirt he's been involved with.
