Rucuss staffSeptember 25, 2012

Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond is finally speaking out after losing custody of her two sons to the pop star.

It’s been a few weeks since the judge ruled in the three-year long custody battle, but Raymond remained quiet. The 41-year old recently filed an appeal but the judge denied the request. Now Raymond is opening up to Entertainment Tonight’s host Nancy O’Dell to give her side of the story.

Raymond’s interview airs tonight but the show gave a sneak peek where she talks about Usher’s alleged affair with one of her bridesmaids.

“Well he admitted to sleeping with one of the two [bridesmaids], you know it was a very disappointing revelation,” Raymond told O’Dell. “I had suspected it for some time and you have  to understand this is like family to us, this is someone who was there when my children were born she took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of [my children] but I hate to say but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap.”

Raymond added,”I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I think we all would admit that he’s very charming.”

Usher told a different version of the story to Oprah on her show Next Chapter. The pop star never admitted to the affair but did admit that they were friends at the end of their two-year marriage.

“Towards the end of our marriage, I found myself lost, and I just wanted out,” Usher told Oprah in response to whether he was faithful in his marriage. “No. I was faithful at heart, but not faithful all the way. Even having a conversation with another woman, period, about matters of your relationship or emotions is, in my opinion, not being faithful.”

When Oprah followed the question with ‘were you with another woman sexually?’ Usher said,”When we were separated, yes, I was. We were not divorced.”

Usher and Tameka were married for two years. Raymond recently loss her 11-year-old son Kile Glover because of a jet-skiing accident.
