According to celebrity blogger Dennis Byron, of HipHop Enquirer, who is in the courtroom, Usher is on the witness stand right now, and Tameka’s attorney, Lisa West, is attempting to prove that his schedule is too busy to get full custody.
And just moments ago, Usher was admonished by the judge for referring to Tameka Raymond as “Tameka Foster.” Apparently, the judge recognizes Foster Tameka Raymond because she kept Usher’s last name after the couple’s divorce in 2009.
Update: According to Dennis, Judge Lane just removed all media from courtroom while Usher was about to give testimony on evidence photos.
Update II, 3:48 pm ET:
According to Dennis, the court personnel are monitoring his coverage and that of a “famous blogger.” It isn’t clear who the famous blogger is.
Raymond and his ex-wife are locked in a contentious battle for full custody of their two sons.
Usher broke down under intensive cross examination by West yesterday. The R&B crooner wiped away tears with a tissue when West accused him of partying all night and using drugs while the children were in his care.
