In yet another twist in the child custody case between pop star Usher Raymond and ex-wifeTameka Foster, things got more than uncomfortable after a lawyer accused the pop star of sleeping with Tameka’s bridesmaid during their marriage.
During court proceedings on Wednesday, Usher sat on the stand, accusing Tameka of constantly changing nannies.
What came next clearly shocked the star.
Tameka’s lawyer apparently justified Tameka’s change of nannies by asking Usher if one of the nannies was forced to leave Miami, “because you were discovered in bed with Maya Fox Davis?” Davis was a friend and bridesmaid of Tameka, according to close friends of the former couple.
Once the lawyer unloaded the bombshell, Usher appeared speechless for several moments afterward. Usher’s lawyer wisely objected to the line of questioning.
Right before that, the atmosphere was already tense, because Usher rehashed an alleged spitting incident he had with his ex-wife. Echoing his testimony from Monday, Usher said Tameka flew into a jealous rage, when he came to her house with his new girlfriend. She allegedly said, “I’m gonna kick your ass. Bitch get out of the car. How dare you bring this woman into my subdivision in my house?”
Afterward, Tameka allegedly hit and threw food at him, but saved her best behavior for last by spitting on his girlfriend.
According to Maya Fox-Davis and Ashley North’s website, Maya’s name comes first then Ashley’s, so, assuming Davis is on the left.

Hip-hop artist Usher Raymond is locked in a legal battle with his ex-wife arising from a custody fight over their two sons.
The 33-year-old testified in court on Tuesday that Tameka Foster Raymond spit at and tried to fight his girlfriend during one visit. He alleged that his ex-wife hit him during the dispute, but that he didn’t press charges because “I didn’t want the boys to know that their father put their mother in jail.”
Tameka Raymond’s attorney claims that Usher provoked her client and that his account is exaggerated.
The two were married in 2007 and divorced two years later. Tameka Raymond has since fought for full custody of their two sons while Usher Raymond wants more visitation rights.
