Tameka Foster is speaking out against claims that her estranged husband, R&B singer Usher, is not the biological father to her youngest son Naviyd Ely Raymond, now seven-months-old. She wants people to know, Usher is absolutely the dad to Naviyd as well as Usher V!
Q: There [are] reports that Usher requested a DNA test to see if he is the biological father of your 7-month old son Naviyd. Is this true?
A: It’s insane. I think the pseudo-DNA Request first ran in the National Enquirer, somewhere between them purporting lewd things about Michelle Obama and underneath the headline that we had captured Osama Bin Laden lol. Many bloggers like the afore mentioned Atlanta woman continue to circulate these fraudulent news pieces, so it’s like I don’t even need to discredit them because they discredit themselves. My husband even found it appalling. He was present for the births of both children and would never deny them. We both find it rude and absurd.
Q: Do you still love your husband?
A: There is a quote I have always loved from author Franklin P. Jones! “Love doesn’t make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
Q: With stories and rumors emerging every other day, how are you coping being under the public eye?
A: The media, as well as public scrutiny can be a beast but I have learned it is best to ignore it and I have ignored it for over two years now. Some of the love, hate, pure ignorance, attention and multiple keystrokes that are devoted to me is actually flattering as opposed to hurtful. To garner such a devotion of energy be it positive or even the not so positive tells me I’m obviously well received and rarely go unnoticed. Its all love no matter how you slice it.
Tameka and Usher are also parents to Usher Raymond V, who will be two in November. Tameka is mom to three older boys from a previous relationship.
Busy mom with five boys!
Hopefully Tameka and Usher can have an amicable split for the sake of their family.
