Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond were at odds even before last week’s custody battle over their two kids. Earlier this month, Usher filed legal documents asking a judge to decrease his child support payments to Raymond. The singer had been paying $8,000 a month for their two sons, and he says that the amount was set in an old agreement and hasn’t been adjusted since he was given primary custody last year. A date has yet to be set for the hearing.
R&B star Usher Raymond and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond’s 5-year-old son Usher Raymond V was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Aug. 5 after nearly drowning in the family swimming pool. The singer was not home at the time when the incident occurred around 6 p.m. Usher’s son was reportedly playing in the pool when he saw a toy at the bottom and went to dive for it. That’s when reports say Usher V got his arm stuck in the drain. Neither his aunt nor the maid could get him out. Two men who were working in the house then came out and rescued the boy. He was immediately given CPR and raced to the hospital. According to Hollywoodlife.com, Usher made it home and was able to ride in the ambulance with his son. Sources say that doctors claim he will be “OK.” This comes just one year after Usher’s stepson Kile Glover, 11, was killed in a boating accident. Our prayers go out for the complete recovery of Usher V.
There is no experience in this world like Cadillac in the Hamptons. I spent the weekend of July 26-29 living a champagne and caviar dream life as a guest of the luxury automotive brand. The trip kicked off with lunch at STK in New York City. After lunch, our media group, which included my new best friend Zondra Hughes, as well as Yoselin Acevedo, Cloves Campbell, Paul Cheung, Mitzi Miller, Christen Rochon, Geneva Thomas and Sekou Writes, headed out to the Hamptons in style in Cadillac ATS vehicles.
I am headed to the American Black Film Festival on South Beach in Miami this week as a guest of Cadillac. Among the exciting things happening at ABFF is the Cadillac Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Great activities are happening there, including “Meet the Filmmakers;” interviews with the cast of “The Best Man Holiday;” “A Rising Star;” featuring Boris Kodjoe and David Talbert; hors d’oeuvres in the VIP area; and “The Black Movie Trivia Challenge,” hosted by Anthony Anderson.
