The child custody case between Usher and his ex-wife Tameka continued today with Usher on the stand again for the majority of the the day. Yesterday, Tameka’s attorney, Lisa West, caused Usher to cry on the stand when she alleged that Usher is more interesting in partying than taking care of his kids. She also asked him about drug and alcohol use. Usher also testified about taking his child back to Tameka with his new sidepiece in the car. Tameka noticed that he had parked down the street rather than in the driveway and she had gone out to the car to confront the other chick. An incident involving Tameka throwing a plate of food at the car was described. However, when I heard the story I had a hard time visualizing the incident the way Usher was describing it. There may have been a reason for that because today West asked Usher if the reason he did not report this incident to the police is because it never happened. After rehashing that incident, West returned to her strategy of attempting to show that Usher’s busy schedule is not conducive to child rearing. Usher has issues with Tameka’s attorney because she doesn’t let up. Usher became non-responsive to West’s questions and ticked off the judge.
Also, Usher stated he did not recognize emails sent from his account that contradicted his previous testimony regarding his schedule. He is not winning any points with the judge.
Then just after 3p.m., all media were kicked out of the courtroom. Not sure what to make about that. They were allowing people to tweet from the gallery (@HipHopEnquirerMag) and then suddenly, everyone had to go. Then about an hour later everyone was let back in.
