Tameka Foster said she is ready to move ahead with proceedings in her custody battle with Usher.
Earlier this week, Usher asked the court to delay the next hearing in his custody battle with Tameka. Supposedly, he’s concerned that it would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for them and their two sons so soon after the death of their 11-year-old son, Kile Glover.
According to TMZ.com, Tameka has filed a response, stating that Usher was not all that concerned about Kile. She accused him of skipping out on Kile’s funeral and using his death to gain sympathy from the public.
She also claimed that "[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once" during the child’s 15-day stay. Tameka said Usher also declined to send out a tweet prompting his followers to pray for Kile.
In an attempt to speak out on her own, Tameka issued a statement to GlobalGrind.com to assert that she has no problem fighting for two of her kids while mourning the loss of another.
"I [do not] wish to appear in court while I am mourning the loss of my son. But I do not want to delay [or] prolong these proceedings either," she said. "I’d rather continue this arduous process hoping it will help move me through this most difficult period in my life."
Tameka added, "Discernment is key. My boys are my entire world and I will fight tooth and nail to keep all of my sons together as a family, I pray for a swift, peaceful resolution so that we all can move forward."
