Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond were on the brink of war BEFORE their son almost drowned in a pool … and it was all over child support payments, TMZ has learned.
Usher filed legal docs earlier this month asking a judge to lower his child support payment to Tameka. As it stood, Usher was shelling out $8,000 / month for the couple’s 2 sons … which he claims is BS.
Here’s why … Usher says that child support amount is from an old agreement and hasn’t been changed since he was granted PRIMARY custody last year. He says he’s been overpaying the last 7 months and wants a judge to remedy the situation.
Usher requested a hearing on the matter — but so far, no date has been set.
TMZ broke the story … Tameka and Usher were ALREADY in court this week, battling over custody. Tameka asked a judge to grant her MORE custody — claiming Usher’s to blame for their son’s pool accident — but she was shot down.
