Last week Usher’s son, Usher V, with ex-wife Tameka Foster nearly drowned in the family pool in Atlanta. The couple faced off in court shortly after, with the judge finding in favor of Usher keeping custody of his sons.
Tameka appeared on Good Morning America today to talk about the accident. She shares her anger over the incident, “I was mad because I was like, ‘How did this happen? Who was watching him? Why was my son under water for nearly 3 minutes?'” In Usher’s defense, the aunt was right there and only left to go get help because she couldn’t get his arm free – it took two men to do it!
Even though she’s angry, Tameka says she doesn’t blame Usher, but she firmly believes it wouldn’t have happened on her watch. “I didn’t blame him for it, I just was angry that it happened on his watch, Because, while accidents happen, never have my children been injured on my watch.”
Tameka is hoping that the court will allow her more time with her sons, “I’d like to have my first right of refusal, which means when he is not present, the kids come home to their mom. They don’t stay home with the nanny and watch whatever show he’s on. They come home to their mother.”
