Usher Has A Change Of Heart In Custody Battle After Stepson’s Jet Ski Accident

Usher‘s custody battle with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, may be settled soon in the wake of her son’s recent jet ski accident. The former couple is in the middle of an ugly and highly publicized fight over custody of their two sons, 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond, but Usher’s position has reportedly softened in the days since 11-year-old Kyle Glover was critically injured in last week’s calamity. The R&B superstar is said to have backed down from some of his demands when it comes to custody of the boys, and according to TMZ:

“…Usher spoke with Tameka over the weekend and suggested that they settle up, but he did not significantly change his offer — 50/50 custody with a very slight increase in child support. Tameka said no way.

But apparently Usher softened after the conversation, because our sources say he met with his lawyers earlier this week and instructed them to craft a new proposal that would give Tameka ‘a majority’ of custody, though the sources did not specify the exact breakdown. We’re told Usher is also raising his child support offer ‘significantly.’”

Reportedly, Tameka’s distress over the condition of her son, who was declared brain dead a day or so after the accident, prompted Usher to initiate an end to the custody battle. Tameka has yet to see the new proposal, but sources told TMZ that “she’s open to a reasonable settlement.” So sad it took this tragedy for someone to step up and make things right.
