According to an anonymous tipster, R&B star Usher is suing ex-wife Tameka Raymond for custody of their children and you'll never guess why.
"Things are changing for Mr. Raymond as his new girlfriend Grace has made him fire all of his staff. Even crazier, she's convinced Usher to try and take his sons away from their mother. Why? Part of the reason is because Usher is tired of paying child support but the main reason is because Grace wants to control Tameka and the kids. Usher and Grace don't want Tameka to have a life. He's trying to modify his custody and take their sons to NYC."
This is what I don't understand, why take the kids because you're tired of paying child support? I've never heard anything about Tameka being a bad mother to the boys. What's the point in taking them away from their home to move them up to New York, and for what? Because you don't want to pay child support and you want to somehow get back at her? Worst part is, Usher is on tour right now so who's going to watch the boys? Oh, that's right, a NANNY! So you take your kids away from a stable home to move them up to New York while you go on tour and some stranger takes care of them? Is your "beef" really that necessary? See, this is exactly what I was saying about the girlfriend needing to know their place!
Updated According to TMZ
According to the docs, Tameka claims Usher has repeatedly FAILED to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids ... which he's legally obligated to do.
But there's more ... a lot more.
Tameka also claims Usher is required and has failed to:
-- get her approval before hiring nannies
-- give her first shot to watch the kids when he's away for more than 8 hours
-- allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
-- let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010
