Usher, Tameka Foster Custody Battle Heats Up

Posted: Updated: 05/16/2012 9:18 pm


As Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster's nasty custody battle continues, sources tell TMZ that Foster fears she could be left homeless by the singer.

Under their divorce settlement, Usher can sell the Georgia mansion which he owns and where Foster and their children, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd, live, provided he gives her 60 days notice. According to TMZ, Foster has accrued legal debts and is asking the 33-year-old singer to give her and their sons the mansion as their permanent home -- a request that Usher has reportedly dismissed.

The couple is scheduled to return to court at the end of the month, according to TMZ.

The property tiff is only the latest chapter in the singer's custody battle with Foster (she has reportedly requested full custody of the children). Earlier this month, a Georgia judge ordered the couple, who currently share custody, to work out a temporary custody agreement in private mediation. On May 5, Foster denied claims that she threatened to kill the R&B star, admitting under oath that she had told him, "I will f**k you up."

The singer's divorce from Foster was finalized in 2009 after less than two years of marriage.

Below, 6 celebs that kept the house in their splits:

Vanessa Bryant scored big in her property settlement agreement with estranged husband Kobe Bryant, nabbing all three of their Newport Beach mansions. In January 2012, the Los Angeles Times reported that the three estates -- worth an estimated $18.8 million combined -- had already been transfered into Vanessa's name.

TMZ recently reported that the Kobe and Vanessa were reconciling.
