Psychologist: Tameka Foster Has a Mental Disorder

  • Yesterday, marked the second day of Tameka Foster and Usher Raymond's continued custody battle.

    Day one of the hearing allowed Raymond to defend his lifestyle and explain his side of the story, day two of court allowed Foster to do the same. Raymond's lawyers also ended their testimony.

    Foster explained to the court her upbringing, saying she was poor and even had to resort to stealing and writing bad checks to survive. One item she recalled stealing was diapers.

    However, she wanted to reiterate that was her past, she was desperate, jobless, and is definitely not proud of her actions.

    After trying to defend her image in court, Foster, made some big accusations of ex-husband Raymond; telling the court, that he only filed for sole custody of their two sons Naviyd and Usher V to stir up problems and as a publicity stunt.

    She said, "I begged him on numerous occasions to withdraw this petition. I was like, ‘it's ridiculous, are you made at me? I don't know why. You know your kids are fine. They're happy… Maybe I don't do everything perfectly, but I do the best I can."

    Raymond's attorneys quickly tried to dispel the clean image Foster was trying to portray.

    His attorney's asked Foster about an alleged physical altercation that occurred between Usher and his current girlfriend in the presence of their sons. Usher earlier in the trial said Foster had physically assaulted him.

    She explained to his attorneys that she may have "pushed him" and confronted him for bringing his mistress to her home but that's all.

    Usher's attorneys closed their argument with testimony from a psychologist who believes that Tameka Foster has "moderately severe mental disorder."

    Raymond is vying for sole custody of the boys and is trying to prove to the court that Foster is an unfit mom.

    Foster is claiming that Raymond lives a wild lifestyle and explains that she is weary of her sons traveling from place to place with their father.

    She hopes to keep their current agreement of joint-custody in place. Foster is also asking for an increase in child support to $11,000 from the $8,000 she is paid now.

    1. I can’t understand why or how someone can feel that they cannot survive on $8000 per month in child support.. These are two young boys not quite school age yet. What could they require that would justify increasing the support to $11000.

    2. How then did Tameka go from stealing diapers to even meeting Usher, I have a daughter that needs a good Usher. I must say that $8k doesn’t begin to set up a lifestyle even similar to the one he provides but if he gets “sole” custody you won’t get that $8k. It is like holding onto the kids for financial support but word to the wise for those women that have used this “ploy” only to find the wealthy men are broke and they are stuck with the kids. It comes down to intent. Usher had no business, and he knew it, bringing another woman, even a friend to his house during such an explosive time. I am sure his attorney’s advised him to “push” her buttons. What you need to do is, get you together and be a mother and the rest will fall into place. If you focus on you and your responsibilities you won’t have time to worry about who he is sleeping with. It is over and probably was before it even started. Saying good-bye to the lifestyle is going to be a hard pill to swallow but believe me, you will feel better and eventually things will settle down. You better save some money and cut your lifestyle down to something that only your income can afford. Put his checks in a savings for 10-15 years from now cause he too might be broke by then if he don’t get a hit. Too often black folks live for the day not realizing easy come easy go, should he die tomorrow, what are you going to do? We are not promised tomorrow. OBAMA 2012

    3. I know that she just lost one of her children however i would like to know if any of the fathers of her other children give her any support finacially or otherwise. Not saying she is a bad mother or that he is the better person to raise the children just wondering.I di agree that she acts sometimes s if she has some mental issues

    4. Why is this article titled “Psychologist: Tameka Foster Has a Mental Disorder,” and not elaborate on that claim??? The article only mentioned that the psychologist BELIEVES she has a moderately severe mental disorder. What is that??? It doesn’t even disclaim what mental order or anything…this is bogus!!

      • Thank you! It’s sad that their marriage failed and it’s gotten so ugly. The children are really suffering because of this. Something is not right about this psychological disorder accusation I don’t think Tomekia is crazy as it’s be portrayed in the media.

    5. SORRY FOR HER LOST AND I KNOW HE MARRIED HER BUT SHE WANT HIM TO PAY WHAT HER OTHER KIDS FATHERS COULDN’T. NOW HE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF HIS KIDS BUT STOP PLAYING SHE WANTED THAT MEAL TICKET THATS WHY SHE HAD THOSE KIDS SO FAST.SHE NOT CRAZY SHE’S A GOLD DIGGER

    6. Hmmm, I think she will be ok with sole custody. Usher should drop the case and man up.
      This happens every day. Most children live with the mother and are fine if not Better!!
