Usher’s ex-wife has asked for an emergency custody hearing after one of the couple’s sons nearly drowned in a pool at the singer’s Atlanta home.
A lawyer for Tameka Foster Raymond filed the request in court on Tuesday. It says the boy ‘suffered a near-death accident’ while left unsupervised.
A judge has set a hearing for Friday.
Atlanta police have said five-year-old Usher Raymond V on Monday fell to the bottom of the pool and became stuck in the drain.
Police say he was alert and conscious when he was pulled out and taken to a hospital.
The singer was awarded primary physical custody of his two sons last year.
