Usher Dishes About Ugly Child Custody Battle

Usher has been involved in a nasty custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster until last month when a judge awarded the singer custody of their two sons Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, 3.

The singer is finally opening up about the terrible experience during his interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Usher, 33, stated, “This will be the only time that I’ve ever chosen to speak about it. I’ve been a man of integrity throughout the entire process, which I hope my boys will understand. That’s the way to go. That’s the way to be.”

The singer denies being an “absentee” father like Tameka claimed, insisting being a dad is the most important thing to him.

Usher explains, “Absentee from the aspect of having to go and work, that probably would be her version or idea of 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 realized that once I had a child. When I had them, that’s when they became a priority.”

Tameka recently lost custody of the two children to Usher and he feels things will never be good between them again.

Usher told Oprah Winfrey, “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 have understood. It wasn’t until I was on the stand, where I cried, that I realized, ‘Oh this is an attack.’”
