When U See What Usher Just Did With His Ex-Wife’s Son, You’ll Like Him Even More

Posted On : May 13, 2017

Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, go way back like Cracker Jacks and have an extensive history together: First Tameka was his wardrobe stylist. Then she became Usher’s wife in 2002. They ultimately went through a very public, nasty divorce in 2009. A bitter custody battle over their two sons followed, and in July 2012 Usher was awarded sole custody of their sons. But the beautiful thing is that when we fast forward to today it’s very clear to see that they have made a 180 degree turnaround. See what we mean below…

In addition to the two sons she shares with Usher- Usher V (b. 2007) and Naviyd Eli (b. 2008)- Tameka also has three more sons, Darren (b. 1991), Ryan (b. 1999), and Kile- who was born in 2001 and sadly was accidentally killed in 2012. Although they’ve been divorced for years now, Usher is still very involved in his step-children’s lives and views them as his sons as well. Check out what he just did with her eldest child, Ryan Glover Jr….

More Reasons Why We Dig Usher

This isn’t the first time Usher has shown his devotion to Tameka’s children. When her young son, Kile, was tragically killed in August 2012 during a jet skiing incident, Usher reportedly dropped everything and rushed to the hospital to be by Tameka’s side.

After Usher won custody of their children in July 2012, Usher consoled a clearly upset Tameka in the courtroom…
