Usher wants to settle custody battle in wake of jet ski tragedy

Usher and sons
Usher wants to settle his messy custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. The 33-year-old singer is keen to sort out a deal after his 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover - the child of Tameka and her former partner Ryan Glover - was hit by a jet ski earlier this month and pronounced brain dead.

Sources close the couple have told TMZ that Usher spoke to his lawyers earlier this week and asked them to construct a new proposal that will give Tameka "a majority" custody of their two sons, Usher Raymond V, four, and three-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond.

Usher is also said to be raising his child support offer "significantly" after Tameka reportedly refused an offer from him over the weekend that stipulated a 50/50 share of custody and a very slight increase in child support.

Although no offers are thought to have been presented to Tameka yet, insiders believe she is open to a "reasonable settlement". Usher is said to have been left "completely devastated" and "distraught" following the jet ski incident.

A source recently said: "Usher is completely devastated and shaken with what has occurred. "He is emotionally drained from the accident. He feels incredibly awful, distraught ... it's been a complete rollercoaster of emotions."
