Tameka Raymond gave her first interview since her son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in a swimming pool accident while under the care of his father. Watch below as Tameka speaks to Good Morning America about the incident, as well as losing the emergency custody hearing.
“I don’t blame him, but I’m angry it happened on his watch,” she says about ex-husband Usher Raymond’s parenting skills.
She hopes that by gaining custody of Usher Raymond V and his younger brother Naviyd, it will help create a more stable environment for them.
“I want to have first right of refusal. (If Usher is out of town) I don’t want them to go home to the nanny and watch whatever show their dad is on. They should be home with their mom.”
Tameka also discussed her frustration with the media labeling her as a ‘gold digger’ instead of a normal working woman and mother.
“I don’t have an agent. I have regular, working-class friends and family. We don’t know how to fight the machine. I had a career, and to be reduced to some baby momma and gold-digger is hurtful.”
