Usher’s ex-wife has filed papers in court asking for the singer to be stripped of custody of their two sons.
Usher’s ex-wife wants to stop him seeing their children.
Tameka Raymond filed court documents in Georgia asking the singer to be stripped of joint physical custody of their sons Usher, four, and Naviyd, three, because he has repeatedly skipped his legal obligations.
According to her documents, Tameka claims her former spouse has repeatedly failed to seek her permission to take the boys out of state, get her approval before hiring nannies, make her the first person he asks to look after the children when he is away for more than eight hours, all of which he is legally obligated to do.
She also alleges the 33-year-old star failed to allow her to have custody of the children for two weeks this summer or during the Christmas break in 2010, despite previously agreeing the access, and claims he closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card after specifically saying he wouldn’t so she can no longer take advantage of the “special benefits” the card offers.
Usher is allegedly behind on $34,000 worth of payments after promising Tameka $5,000-a-month to pay for a nanny.
She is also requesting more child support, arguing there has been a “substantial change” in her former spouse’s income since they divorced in 2009.
A hearing on the matter has been scheduled for Wednesday (29.11.11).
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are renting a luxurious apartment in west London together.
The couple – who play on-screen lovers Edward Cullen and Bella Swan are renting a flat in the English capital’s Notting Hill area, to use as a base when they are in Europe, according to the MailOnline.
The spacious flat has an open plan kitchen, modern decor throughout, and a master bedroom with a large bed, comfy arm chairs and a stylish dressing table.
The stylish apartment also has a second bedroom, an open plan living area and a large rooftop terrace which offers fantastic views over the city.
London-born Robert, 25, likes to spend as much time in his home country as he can, and American Kristen, 21, has been based in the UK recently while filming ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’.
The couple were reunited in London last week to attend the British premiere of ‘The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn – Part 1′.
Robert and Kristen were also spotted out on a date on Monday night (21.11.11), watching folk singer Laura MarlingÂ at the exclusive Soho House members’ club, where they caused a stir with staff by turning up dressed in casual hoodies and jeans.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “It took a while for staff to realise who they were. Once in, they kept it low-key by standing at the back sipping pints. You’d never have guessed they were film stars.”
The couple were said to be celebrating the end of their promotional tour for their film.
Sarah Michelle Gellar would only reprise her role as Buffy Summers if it was on her two-year-old daughter’s favourite show, ‘Sesame Street’.
Sarah Michelle Gellar would only reprise her role as Buffy Summers for ‘Sesame Street’.
The actress has moved on from her most iconic part as the lead character in TV series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, and would only play her again if it was for her two-year-old daughter, Charlotte’s, favourite children’s show.
Referring to furry red monster character Elmo, Sarah said: “I could share a scene with Elmo. I mean, I’ve worked with some great people , Andy Garcia, Forest Whitaker – but they’re not Elmo.”
Sarah, 34, added she would also agree to share the scene with another of the show’s more fitting characters, Count von Count, who is modelled on a vampire.
She added: “Yep, okay. But that would be the only place I’d return as Buffy.”
Sarah finished on ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ in 2003 when she was 26, and is glad it ended while she was still young because it means she has plenty of time to develop her career in other directions.
She added to The Sunday Times newspaper: “One of the beauties of being on ‘Buffy’ was it afforded me the chance to live other experiences.
“I’m lucky that I don’t feel I have the pressure some actors do. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished and I’m not chasing something. A lot of actors are.”
Sarah now stars in new US TV show ‘Ringers’.
Reviews of the film are in, but how about reviews of the wedding dress? So far, not much has been said about the much-anticipated Breaking Dawn wedding gown, but designer Carolina Herrera certainly hopes fans love it.
“I worked on that dress for like six months going back and forth,” she told E! on Monday night at the film’s Los Angeles premiere. “I still have all the sketches and everything because it was so special.”
Herrera partnered with Twilight author Stephanie Meyer to design the gown, staying true to her description. “I think she did a fantastic job, and I respected what she wanted,” Herrera added to FabSugar at the premiere. The designer met with Kristen Stewart for fittings — “I think she’s fabulous,” she said — and really thought about the otherworldly subject matter as she sketched.
“You had to really take into consideration the whole story, which was this innocent girl with the first true love of her life,” the designer, who’s created wedding gowns for Christina Hendricks and several other stars, explained. “It had to be magical.”

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore took a break at Bruce Willis’ Caribbean holiday home to work on their marriage.
The couple spent the weekend at Demi’s ex-husband’s getaway in the Turks and Caicos Islands to spend some quality time together.
The pair’s relationship has been rocked by the recent accusations made by 22-year-old Sara Leal that Ashton had sex with her at a San Diego hotel room in September and they have been trying to reconnect.
A source told UsMagazine.com: “Things have been very strained. [But] they’re trying to figure things out.”
Despite the affair allegations, Ashton, 33, and Demi, 49, have been working hard to repair their marriage and are determined to stay together.
The ‘Two and a Half Men’ actor recently landed in hot water after writing an ill advised comment on twitter seemingly defending NFL coach Joe Paterno – who was fired for allegedly covering up child abuse by his assistant coach – and has now stopped tweeting.
He said: “As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error … A collection of over 8 million followers is not to be taken for granted. I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst Media to ensure the quality of its content.
“My sincere apologies to anyone who I have offended. It was a mistake that I don’t think will happen again.”
Ashton also clarified his controversial tweet, saying he had merely seen that Joe had been fired, and incorrectly presumed it was because of his age, rather than other controversies.
Cameron Diaz and Diddy were spotted enjoying lunch together at Scarpetta in Beverly Hills. The two were alone for the first part of the meal, and then were joined later by a male who appeared to be a business associate. For their lunch, the group enjoyed wine, as well as two pasta dishes, steak and chicken. As for the nature of the lunch, well, it was business focused, says Diaz’s rep. “Cameron and Sean are longtime friends and fans of one another’s work,” her rep tells us. “They have been seen together recently because they are developing a film project.” – Jennifer
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s three-month-old dog almost died after eating rocks and had to undergo surgery.
Selena Gomez’s dog almost died after eating rocks.
The singer-and-actress was devastated when three-month-old puppy Baylor got violently ill last Friday (11.11.11) after ingesting a large amount of small boulders.
So Selena – who adopted the Purina Puppy Chow last month with boyfriend Justin Bieber – took him to the vet, where he underwent surgery.
Selena tweeted: “My baby is sick praying for his surgery. (sic)”
The adoption agency the couple got Baylor from will now visit Selena once a month to make sure she is caring for the pooch properly.
Justin and Selena – who has five rescue dogs – adopted Baylor after visiting the Winnipeg animal rescue centre D’Arcy’s ARC, where they fell in love with him.
D’Arcy Johnston, chief executive officer of the rescue centre, said: “They spent a lot of time with the puppies. I was told that Selena was missing the dogs that she has at home.
“I wasn’t expecting her to adopt a dog while she was on tour and has a busy schedule. Baylor probably would have had a bad life or a very short life. But he got rescued and brought to our shelter and is now going to live a very good life.”
Thousands of Brazilians found out the painful way that yes, it’s possible for your eyeballs to rip themselves from their bloody socket veins when they’re faced with a direct threat. Hole performed at Brazil’s SWU Festival on Saturday night, and despite warnings from the local health department to keep her top on, Courtney Love pulled her nipple knob out like a stranger in front of a Wendy’s was waiting to suck on it. Just like that, Braille has become the #1 form of communication in Brazil. If you really want your corneas to hate you, click here to see the pictures of Courtney’s silicone dough sack.
Right after the demure gutter weed flower made Brazilian corneas combust, she brought the crazy center stage and cursed out a bitch who kept holding up a picture of Kurt Cobain (video above). Court stopped playing, fucked a ho with her middle finger and then let out this wave of word fuckery at him:
“I don’t need to see a picture of Kurt asshole and I’m going to have you fucking removed if you keep holding that up. I’m not Kurt, I have to live with his shit and his ghost and his kid every day and throwing that up is stupid and rude and I’m going to beat the fuck out of you if you do it again.
You weren’t fucking married to him, I fucking was. You didn’t get kicked out of a band by him, like Dave, he did. Go see the fucking Foo Fighters and do that shit.”
“….and his kid every day….” Those maternal words are like a loving hug around the damaged parts of Frances Bean’s heart.
Courtney took her tantrum off stage, but came back a second later after someone in her entourage (read: her dealer) told the audience that The Foo Fighters are gay. Well, just like every former heterosexual dude in the audience who ran to the bright side after staring at Court’s tits, The Foo Fighters are in good company! But seriously, even though Courtney is the ghost of Ke$hit’s future who can knock the feeling out of a bitch’s genitals just by flashing her nipples, I still have a soft spot for her. And yes, I should really try to harden that soft spot with a topical ointment.
