COULD WE NOT HAVE SEEN THIS COMING?
DISASTER STRIKES AGAIN
Last year, Tameka’s son died after a tragic boating accident. On Monday August 5, 2013, her son with Usher named: Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, was pulled from the pool unconscious after his hand became stuck in a pool drain when he dived in to retrieve a toy. His aunt and a maid tried unsuccessfully to free the boy. Two men working inside the house heard the women’s screams and dived into the pool. The men were able to rescue the child.
Usher’s aunt Rena Oden is hysterical during the call. She tells the 911 dispatcher, “My nephew was in the pool. He went… I could not get him. I tried to get him… And they got him out now.. they’re doing CPR on him.
WOULD THIS HAPPEN IF THE KIDS WHERE IN THE CUSTODY OF TAMEKA? AND WHY DIDN’T THE AUNT KNOW ABOUT UPGRADING HER POOL SYSTEM TO BE CHILD SAFE?
ACCIDENTS HAPPEN AT ANY TIME. HENCE THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD ACCIDENT. I BELIEVE IT COULD HAVE HAPPEN IF TAMEKA WAS THE MAIN CUSTODIAN. HOWEVER, DUE TO HER RECENT TRAGEDY WITH HER ELDEST SON, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE WATCHFUL OF HER TWO YOUNG SON’S ACTIVITIES.
THE AUNT SHOULD HAVE PURCHASE A SIMPLE IN EXPENSIVE POOL DRAIN COVER, WHICH COULD HAVE PREVENTED THE NEAR -TRAGIC EVENT FROM HAPPENING. THERE HAS BEEN MANY MEDIA REPORTS ABOUT THE DANGER OF POOLS AND YOUNG KIDS AND SMALL PETS. POOL DRAINS EXERT 200 POUNDS OF PRESSURE ON CHILDREN THAT BECOME CAUGHT IN THE DRAINS, MAKING THEM IMPOSSIBLE TO GET FREE.
WHAT IS TAMEKA FOSTER GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS NEAR TRAGIC EVENT?
TMZ SHARES THE DETAILS:Usher’s ex-wife has just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing later this week … to wrestle child custody away from him, on grounds he’s creating a dangerous environment … TMZ has learned.
Tameka Raymond filed the docs in Fulton County, Georgia, claiming Usher is abdicating his parental responsibilities by letting other people care for their 2 kids — people who she claims are not on the ball.
We know Tameka has specific beef with the Usher’s aunt — who was watching 5-year-old Usher Raymond V when his arm got stuck in the pool drain on Monday. Tameka has complained about the aunt in the past — alleging she once let a stalker in the house where Usher and the kids were staying. Tameka also says the aunt is too physical in disciplining the kids.
Currently Usher has primary custody of both kids and Tameka has limited custodial rights. She now seeks to reverse that.
MADD FACTOR: THE CRAZY THING.. STEVIE WONDER COULD SEE THIS COMING… AND MOST PEOPLE WOULD SAY.. THAT’S NOT GOOD! SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS. WHAT PART OF THIS STORY DO YOU THINK USHER COULD HAVE CHOSEN TO MOVE FORWARD OR NOT? HENCE PROTECTING HIMSELF FROM THIS DRAMA AND TRAGEDY?
UPDATE:Fulton County Superior Court Judge John J. Goger granted Tameka Raymond’s request for an emergency hearing on Tuesday — one day after her 5-year-old son nearly drowned in his aunt’s swimming pool in Fulton County. The emergency hearing is scheduled for Friday, August 9.
Tameka Raymond is asking Judge Goger to reverse a previous court order giving singer Usher Raymond primary custody of their two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely, 4.
