Usher wants a paternity test performed on his second son


Usher and Tameka in March 2008.

Things are getting nasty in the divorce between Usher and soon-to-be ex-wife Tameka. In fact their friends are predicting the entire process is going to be heated. Someone told Usher that Tameka was stepping out on him around the time she got pregnant with six-month-old Naviyd. Usher believes it might be true since he and Tameka were only together once around the time she conceived. Of course, like they told you in seventh grade sex ed, it only takes one time. But Usher’s suspicious nonetheless, and insisting on a DNA test.

From the moment wife Tameka told him she was pregnant with 6-month-old Naviyd, the R&B singer was suspicious, reveals insiders. “The first thing Usher said was, ‘How did this happen?’ – because he was gone a lot, and their sex life was very, very limited,” revealed a friend of the star. Now pals are urging Usher to determine paternity with a DNA test, reveals a source. “People have been telling him that around the time the little boy was conceived, Tameka got together with another man.”

Usher loves both his sons and is going to fight for custody, divulged his friend. “But he’s determined to get truthful answers.” Meanwhile, Tameka is fighting back hard – charging that 30-year-old Usher has been playing around, revealed an insider.

“Tameka also insists that Usher is Naviyd’s father. She says that although they weren’t spending much time together, they did get together for one night of passion. And that’s when she got pregnant.”… By the time Naviyd was born this past December, the couple was reportedly already separated. “now the war is truly on,” said the insider.

[From the National Enquirer, print edition, July 6 2009]

From the way the friend phrases it, it almost sounds like Usher is going to fight for custody of both of his sons regardless of paternity results, which could be interesting. The Enquirer goes on to talk about how scared Tameka is that she’ll end up poor again, and as a result she’s going to fight tooth and nail for everything she has. There’s as much as $80 million at stake here, and everyone was calling Tameka a gold digger long before she and Usher tied the knot.

Neither of these two strike me as model spouses, and they’re being remarkably immature for grown adults. Their friends are passing information about the two like it’s eighth grade. Luckily their sons are too young to know what’s going on. But I’m sure the drama is just beginning.

    How about a chromosome test provided on Tameka?

  2. emily says:

    This divorce is finally getting interesting. hihi! Ask for paternity test, Usher. Maybe you’ll get a surprise!

  3. ogechi says:

    has their relationship gone that bad?…

  4. princess pee says:

    I guess a negative result (i.e. that Usher is not the babydaddy) would seriously weaken his attempts to get full custody. That would certainly be an interesting battle to watch.

  5. Wow says:

    LMBO @ BlueSkies! That’s just wrooooong, but oh so funny.

  6. cleo says:

    I support Usher, he wants to know the truth. Why should he raise a child that isn’t his own.

  7. Trey says:

    Get down girl, go ‘head get down.

    18 years, 18 years
    She got one of yo’ kids, got you for 18 years

    18 years, 18 years
    And on her 18th birthday, he found out it wasn’t his?

    /the only time I’ll call Kayne West a visionary. Song
    (jump to lyrics) mentions Usher even ;)

  8. princess pee says:

    @cleo – but his “friend” says that he will raise the boy even if it’s not his… so what difference does the dna make?

  9. HEB says:

    This was just a bad idea from the start. Usher seemed obsessed with the idea of “doing the right thing” and marrying Tameka when she got knocked up…like he wanted to be a posterchild for black guys stepping up and being a husband, not just a baby daddy.

    Too bad he didn’t step up with someone nicer and prettier.

  10. Eileen Yover says:

    A BIG difference- If he finds out she was cheating, than her spousal support will be cut off.

  11. Trey says:

    @princess pee- it will certainly make a lot of difference in the divorce case; goodbye alimony. She’ll have to start at the golddiggin bottom all over again

  12. princess pee says:

    @ Eileen and Trey – ah, okay. I wasn’t thinking of her, just the custody part. Still, I think it will be hard to convince a judge to hand over a child after you go to court to prove it’s not yours.

  13. QB says:

    He gave the kid his name so is really hard to get your name of the birth cerificate, thats why is important to get a dna test before signing the birth certificate because then is a up hill batlle to to change it.

    If he is not the biological parent that does not change the fact that legally he is the father and haves every right to ask for custody unless he ask for the judge to remove it.

    QB, it’s free and easy to change the child’s name until the child is 1 year old. After his/her first birthday, then you would have to deal with court hearings and paying to change your child’s name. I was told that when I tried to change/add to my daughter’s name, after she was a year old.

  15. BlueSkies says:

    Jaybird, get back to covering the Goop please. Can you do the week before when Gwyneth casually mentions knifing bulls before a bullfight so matter of factly and then the following week talks all vegan? Love to hear your take on this one and animal lover response.

  16. QB says:

    Sorry Truth, I meant the fathers name. You have to go infront of a judge and prove that the child is not yours and that you did not know this before you recognize him as your child.The the judge will ask for dna and he will make a decision , is long process and unlikely that the judge will rule in favor of the plaintiff.

  17. Cinderella says:

    I can’t imagine he is worth $80 mill., but what do I know.

  18. Beth says:

    Actually a lot of judges have ruled that eventhough it was learned that the husband/boyfriend wasn’t the biological father, they still had to pay child support. They claim it’s best for the child. I disagree because why shouldn’t the biological take responsibility for the child.

  19. Gigohead says:

    Wow! That’s COLD!! but I understand where Usher is coming from, if the months doesn’t match, you have to do the DNA match. Plain and simple!!

    Usher is not only kicking this woman while she is down, but stomping on her weave as well.

  20. Fan of none... says:

    Momma Usher tried to tell his peanut-headed behind about that broad, but did he listen?
    Noooooooo…

    So now she’s going to publicly announce she’s broke like Kelis did…

  21. Rachel says:

    I just feel bad for the kid- when he grows up and learns his dad wanted a DNA test… Regardless of “the reasons” (aka spousal support) why, it would still hurt

  22. Victoria says:

    Usher married an older woman with 4 kids already! Who took care of those kids while she was with Usher?

  23. mel says:

    I dont blame Usher one bit for asking for a paternity test. If it’s not his child then why should he have to take care of someone else’s kid??? But everybody knew about Tameka being a gold digger when your momma says NO she means it for a reason.

  24. RaraAvis says:

    Poor kid. Not even a year old, and already dissed publicly by his old man.

  25. fizXgirl314 says:

    you guys making cracks about the way she looks… while funny… i’d like to add that no marriage has really survived just because the woman was beautiful… even supermodels get divorced…

  26. Ursula says:

    Cinco looks like him. Naviyd, not so much, but we will see. She may have become pregnant on purpose to ensure her pension.

  27. Jazz says:

    Should of listened to your mama Usher!

  28. Wench. says:

    “Baby daddy” ! Hehehe. I love that phrase, I’ve never really heard it before I watched random episode of Ricki Lake back from when polo necks were cool. I tried to slip it into conversation. But with my southern English accent, I just sound like a twat. :(

  29. nj says:

    LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER. SHE IS NOT SOME BLATHERING IDIOT. SHE IS OLDER AND SMARTER THAN YOU AND SHE HAS WISDOM THAT YOU HAVE NOT YET ACQUIRED. YOU ARE HER CHILD AND SHE LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY-SHE WILL NOT STEER YOU WRONG. SHE LOVED YOU WHEN YOU WERE JUST A CRYING, CRAPPING INFANT-YOUR MONEY DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO YOUR MOTHER. SHE LOVES YOU IN A WAY NO ONE ELSE EVER CAN. LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER. LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER. I AM GOING TO SELL MEDALLIONS WITH USHER’S MOM’S FACE ON THEM AS THE PATRON SAINT OF MOTHERS WHO WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG! EVERY MOTHER WILL BUY THEM! LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!!!!!!!

  30. Yae says:

    I don’t know about all mother’s being right. Look at Eddie Murphies mom. She raised a boy who treats women and his offspring like dirt.
    But I have to admit Usher’s mom seemed to sniff a rat as soon as this lady came around.

  31. Moriah says:

    Usher is gay. End of story.

  32. aw! says:

    They need to go on the Maury show!

  33. Bossy says:

    While he’s at it, he should get a test for the first born. She was still with her (then) husband around the time she got pregnant.
    I’d bet good money that neither of the kids are his.

  34. MEL says:

    Man up, Usher! This is just an attempt to harrass and abuse the mother of his children!

  35. space age revo says:

    I think this is crazy…their kids look just like him! I’m not saying that he doesn’t remember having sex with her…I mean she could have had some of his sperm on hand for a situation…maybe had it frozen or something …I dunno…could be possible..no matter though the baby looks like him.

  36. Nana says:

    I honestly believe the first child is not Usher’s. The only logical reason would be that Usher wanted a “break” back in Feb, the same year they were engaged. When they were supposedly on this “break” the crazy bitch pronounced that she was pregnant in hopes Usher would not leave her and what do you know, suddenly the break became “he proposed” and married her. So that my friends was her get go plan. Like most girls in an obsess relationship would do especially even more with someone famous like Usher, she was scared Usher would leave so she trapped him by getting pregnant probably with her previous ex husband (which he probably got some money out of it) just to be pregnant to claim it indeed is Ushers. I don’t doubt the second child is his only because once the first son is born you think you might as well have another. Who knows…the bitch is crazy!
