Usher's ex using stalker in custody war

04 July 2012, 08:12

 Los Angeles - Usher's ex-wife reportedly plans on using his recent alleged stalker incident to help her win custody of their two children.

Tameka Raymond apparently wants to prove their offspring are not safe with the singer after an imposter was able to get into his home while the children were there.

The 33-year-old singer has obtained a restraining order against 26 year old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw after she turned up uninvited at his home on 23 June to "harass" him and his family.

The occasion could help to fuel Tameka's case in a lengthy custody battle in court that is set to resume next month.

Tameka has previously cited arguments which include Usher's hectic tour schedule and his alleged drug use as to why she believes her ex-spouse should not have the privilege of sending the majority of time with their boys Naviyd Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V.

Sources told website TMZ.com that Tameka is scared for their safety as Darshelle was able to get into the property even though he lives in a gated community and has a security team.
