omg! Insider talked to her lawyer Angela Kinley to discuss the issues at stake
Listen to Usher on iHeartRadio
(Yahoo!) - On Friday, Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster will head to court to ask for custody back of the two children she shares with the R&B singer. "omg! Insider" sat down on Thursday with Foster's lawyer, Angela Kinley, to discuss the issues at stake.
Follwing is the Q&A with Ms. Kinley:
"Omg! Insider": What is Tameka asking for tomorrow?
Angela Kinley (AK): Ms. Raymond is asking for the court to grant her temporary primary custody of the children on an emergency basis. A lot of people aren't aware that there is a modification custody that was filed May 29 in a separate superior action, and this is just really addressing the issue on a temporary basis until we can have that whole case heard.
"Omg! Insider": Are the grounds similar to the grounds made on May 29?
AK: They are. This obviously is just a supporting factor in the allegations that she already made about the supervision in the household. The issue really is just that Mr. Raymond isn't parenting himself. He is allowing other parties to parent on his behalf while he is out of town. Although we certainly understand he has work related commitments — and we encourage those — we would like the children to be with Ms. Raymond rather than a third party.
"Omg! Insider": So, when he is out of town, you are telling me that Ms. Raymond isn't even able to get access to or parent her children when he is traveling?
AK: That is correct. If it is not in the court order, he does not allow the children to be with her.
"Omg! Insider": And what is the danger, do you think, that Ms. Raymond is claiming in allowing third parties to watch her children?
AK: First of all, we don't know who the third parties are. We do not know what their qualifications are, we don't know what their driving history is, we don't know anything. If they are providing transportation for the children, to schools or to other activities, we would obviously like to know who they are. If it's family members it's an issue of Ms. Raymond having history with those family members — either not getting along with her or having prior situations where stalkers were let in the house, things like that. It is just really an issue of Ms. Raymond preferring for either Mr. Raymond or herself to parent the children.
