Usher Wins Custody Battle Against Ex Tameka Foster Following Son’s Pool Accident

An Atlanta judge has dismissed the emergency motion filed by Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster, who was seeking primary custody of their children Usher V and Navivyd Ely, PEOPLE reports.

Following the case, Usher turned and hugged Foster, reportedly whispering “I’m sorry” several times.

The dismissal comes just days after 5-year-old Usher V nearly drowned in an Atlanta pool. After the boy’s aunt Rena Oden and a maid were unable to free him, two contractors who were working at the home rushed to help and gave him CPR.

I am blessed and fortunate to say that my son Usher V is doing well and is recovering,” Usher said in a statement on Thursday. “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family’s well being.”
