Tameka Raymond's Emotional Moment Over Lost Son
September 27, 2012
Our interview with Usher's ex, Tameka Raymond, continues as she talks about how the music star's new gig as a judge on The Voice complicates their custody agreement and how she is still in mourning over the recent death of her son.
"I think I'm still in shock," Tameka says of the accident that took the life of her 11 year-old son Kile, who was struck in the head by a jet ski, and of her bitter custody battle with Usher. "I think I'm still in shock. I don't know how to, you know, I don't really know how to put it into words, it's really hard. But what I will say is that I still had to be a mom to my other boys."
When Nancy O'Dell asks Tameka if she thinks her "angel" is looking over her, she gets emotional and needs a break. There is some bitterness that remains as well, in that she asked Usher to tell his fans (he has over five million Twitter followers) to pray for her little boy, and he did not respond to her.
