For anyone hoping to get a glimpse into just how much drama went on between R&B superstar Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, the singer’s emotional court testimony should be quite entertaining.
Usher got emotional during the custody hearing, and shared an incident when he and his girlfriend/manager Grace Miguel showed up to drop off his son.
“To hopefully prevent a negative interaction between the two of them I parked at a distance down the hill from her home. I walked Usher up the hill, up the driveway, to her house where she greeted me with a plate of food. Apparently there was some celebration going on in the house. She had a plate of food in her hand and I said, ‘Here’s Usher,'” the senior Usher says. “I said she should go into the house and attend to the other children, she said, ‘The children are fine.’ I proceeded to walk back down the hill towards my car and she said, ‘Why’d you park down the hill?’ I said, ‘You should turn around and go back to your house and deal with the children as no one is in the house. The children are unattended.’ She said, ‘The children are fine. Why’d you park down the hill?’”
“She placed the plate of food on the pedestal and walked over to the car,” he continued. “[She] pulled the door open and she wanted to fight. She told her, ‘I’ma kick your a–. B—h get out of the car. How dare you bring this woman in my subdivision. In my house, my subdivision.’ Of course I try my hardest to prevent the situation from escalating to far worse than what it could have potentially been, but she continued to swing, spit. At this point she had slammed — she began to pull the door open, began to pull Ms. Miguel and began to swing at her. It was basically an attack on her. I, at that point, got out of the car and came around to the passenger side and stood between the two of them. Ms. Miguel never got out of the car but at least I wedged myself between the door and her. I shut the door and Tameka hit me, of course. I went back around to the other side of the car and we exchanged words. I just told her, there were people watching in the neighborhood and I just thought that was horrible. The kids could have seen us. Could have heard us obviously. She shouldn’t be so loud and maybe other neighbors would have seen it. That’s just not the way I would conduct myself, so I left. Got in my car, drove to the end of the culdesac, turned around and she threw her plate of food at the car and I drove off.”
