The range of emotions this woman must be going through!
Tameka Foster doesn't blame her ex Usher for their son Usher Raymond V's near drowning incident, but she strongly believes that there wouldn't have been an accident if she was the one watching the kids!
Here's what she said:
"I was mad because I was like, 'How did this happen? Who was watching him? Why was my son under water for nearly 3 minutes? I didn't blame [Usher] for it, I just was angry that it happened on his watch. Because, while accidents happen, never have my children been injured on my watch."
That's not totally fair since accidents can happen at anytime, we totally understand why she was so upset - after all she's already lost one child. A type of loss that no parent should have to go through ever!
Tameka admits she relived that past trauma when she first heard about the pool accident from Usher. She said:
"I was at a dental appointment and [Usher] doesn't call me regularly, so when I saw his number come up I immediately jumped up, I figured he had the boys . . I need to get this. It was like I relived [losing my son]. My brain went into all those modes. I even said on the phone, 'I've had this call before.'"
Ugh! We can't even imagine how this poor woman was feeling!
Tameka recently lost an emergency custody hearing, but she still wishes there could be some sort of agreement her and Usher could work out. An agreement where she'd be able to look after the boys when Usher is away.
Here's what she said:
"I'd like to have my first right of refusal, which means when he is not present, the kids come home to their mom. They don't stay home with the nanny and watch whatever show he's on. They come home to their mother."
In the meanwhile Tameka explains that she harbors no ill will towards her ex husband, saying:
"Absolutely not, no. He is the father of my children, and I love my kids more than life itself."
We don't think anyone could argue that she loves her kids a lot!
In the end though we're just happy their son is safe and sound! That's really all that matters!
